The Delhi Capitals have been one of the most impressive teams in IPL 2020 so far. The Shreyas Iyer-led outfit have played eight matches and emerged victorious in six of them.
The Capitals will take on the Chennai Super Kings in their ninth game of the season. The Super Kings have won only three of their eight fixtures thus far, but after their impressive performance against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, fans expect them to bounce back in the season's second half.
The last time these two teams met on the field saw the Delhi Capitals beat the Chennai Super Kings quite comfortably. CSK will be keen to avenge that loss, but their record in Sharjah isn't great. In the only match they have played at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in IPL 2020, CSK gave away 216 runs to the Rajasthan Royals.
On the other side, the Delhi Capitals have won both of their fixtures in Sharjah. They will target to complete a hat-trick of victories on this ground. Here's a look at the pitch report and weather conditions for Match 34 of IPL 2020.
