IPL Preview: CSK Vs DD
One of the most successful IPL team, Chennai Super Kings will go head to head against Delhi Daredevils at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi later tonight. Delhi has won one out of their two matches played so far, but Chennai Super Kings have not registered any points in the competition They have only played a single game so far, which they lost against Punjab, who has one of the strongest squad in the competition.

If CSK comes up with a similar batting performance as they did in their initial match scoring 200 plus runs against Punjab, they could well be favourites to win the match, as Delhi Daredevils may be a weak team as compared to Punjab in Kevin Pietersen's absence, who may not yet be ready to play. But, on the other hand one cannot discount Delhi's team, which comprises of decent players if not great batsman like Pietersen.

Hence it is players such as Dinesh Karthik, Duminy, Taylor, Tiwary who need to come up with a good batting performance against a decent looking bowling unit of CSK, which includes Smith, Ashish Nehra, Ashwin, Jadeja ? a good variety in their bowling attack. Delhi would pin their hopes in the batting exploits of Karthik and Duminy, especially the latter, who has been in good form in the matches played so far.

CSK have a superior batting line up, which can spread fear amongst other teams in the competition. McCullum, Raina, Dhoni, Bravo are the four main batsmen for CSK and if these players get their act together, Delhi would be in for a long day. Hence, Delhi bowlers need to bowl the ball in the right areas and contain these batsmen, which is not going to be an easy job.

Delhi's bowling line up, which does not look great might have to bowl out of their skin if they are to win the game against CSK. Shammi, Coulter Nile and Neesham holds the key for Delhi.
