MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings will take on Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals in the 55th match of IPL 2022 at the Dr DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on Sunday. Chennai are almost out of the race for the playoffs as they have just three wins from 10 matches while Delhi have a good chance of making the last four as they have five wins from 10 matches. CSK need to win all their reaming matches And hopefully the other team’s results will go in their favor while DC need to get just three more wins from the last four matches.

Chennai Super Kings will try to bring back their experienced all-rounder Dwayne Bravo in place of Dwayne Pretorius. The South African all-rounder failed to live up to the expectations with bat and ball. He looted runs in the death and did not take advantage of the opportunity to bat. Simarjit Singh’s chances may also run out and Dhoni will try to bring back Shivam Dubey. The left-arm power hitter has done well with the bat but was equally poor when it comes to bowling. However, CSK will try to strengthen their middle order by adding Dube.
Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, need to fix their initial issue. In the previous game, Mandeep Singh was dismissed for a duck instead of Prithvi Shaw, who was in poor form. He has not done well this season and it is likely that he will lose his place in today’s match as well. Prithvi should come back, he has a history of scoring runs against Chennai and Pant should back him for one more game.
