After registering a marvelous return in the last game, Delhi Daredevils still needs 5 wins to qualify for the playoffs. They have registered just 2 wins in 7 games and facing off the table-toppers Chennai Super Kings would not be an easy task for them. On the opposite, Chennai Super Kings are currently in a safe position after returning to the tournament from two years of hiatus. They would be looking to play their natural game in a home away from home game.
Moreover, with the type of wicket Pune is, it is expected to be a high scoring affair between both the sides. Both the sides have ample of big hitters and lack in the sheer bowling attack. With Deepak Chahar getting injured in the last match, Chennai would have to look for options.
Moreover, according to our CHE vs DEL today match prediction, hosts will be favorite due to home advantage!
