Welcome to Sportstar‘s LIVE coverage of the IPL 2022 match between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. This is Santadeep Dey, bringing you all the action as it unfolds at the venue.


Shardul begins with a wide delivery.

CSK 43/0 in 5 overs: Axar into the attack. Ruturaj charges down the wicket and drags the ball to deep mid-wicket for a single. Axar loops one in and this time Conway dances down the track to loft the ball all the way over the fence for SIX. There goes another. Axar fends short and Conway advances quickly to loft the ball over mid-wicket for another SIX.

CSK 29/0 in 4 overs: Khaleel continues. Conway nudges the ball down to mid-on and gets a single. Another single to follow. Short ball from Khaleel and Conway nearly pulls it on the full to square-leg. Excellent over from Khaleel as he constricts the batters to a string of singles.

CSK 24/0 in 3 overs: Gaikwad explodes… shimmies down and welcomes Nortje with a delightful maximum over the shorter boundary. Nortje oversteps; this has not been the best of seasons for the speedster. Four… Bowled into the pads and Conway has clipped it fine.

CSK 9/0 in 2 overs: A slip in place for Khaleel, who will be bowling over the wicket to the right-handed Gaikwad. Starts off with a wide down leg. The pair takes three singles.

CSK 5/0 in 1 over: Gaikwad gets off the mark with a single to short third man. Conway, however, seems to be in the mood tonight. He gets his first runs courtesy of a boundary to midwicket. That shaped in and the Kiwi does well to flick it through the gap on the leg-side.

Gaikwad and Conway are back to get things underway for the Chennai Super Kings. Delhi Capitals’ Shardul will open the bowling.

Chennai Super Kings: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, Moeen Ali, MS Dhoni (c/wk), Shivam Dube, Dwayne Bravo, Maheesh Theekshana, Simarjeet Singh, Mukesh Choudhary

Delhi Capitals: David Warner, Srikar Bharat, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (c/wk), Rovman Powell, Axar Patel, Ripal Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Anrich Nortje


MS Dhoni: We would have bowled first. Toss is not in our control. When there are a few changes after a big auction, sometimes you need to see what is the best combination. Jadeja is not fit. Dube comes in.

Rishabh Pant: We want to chase. The season has been up and down. It is going to be a good match. I have learnt a lot from MS Dhoni. Let’s see how I execute them. Two changes for us. KS Bharat comes in for Mandeep and Axar Patel is in for Lalit Yadav.


Delhi Capitals opts to bowl


“One side of the boundary is 64 meters and the other is 78 meters. There was a lot more grass last week. The wicket is still going to be a belter. But it may be a little bit slower and a bit spin-orientated. Couple of weeks back there was dew but not so much over the last week,” reckons Kevin Pietersen.

A tussle against an unsettled opponent in Chennai Super Kings on Sunday offers Delhi Capitals a great chance to string two wins in a row for the first time this season to make a decisive push for a spot in the playoffs.  

Although Super Kings still remain in the hunt for the playoffs despite seven losses in 10 matches, the chances of making it are slim.

The Capitals will be buoyed by their recent win against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The Sunrisers were a tough opponent and the result was attained despite a lacklustre performance from Kuldeep Yadav. Kuldeep, who is second in the list of top wicket-takers this season, has become a talisman of sorts for his team – the contest against Lucknow Super Giants on April 7 was the only other occasion when the Capitals won despite a relatively dull performance from the left-arm spinner.

The other bowler to shine this season has been fast bowler Khaleel Ahmed, who stepped up against the Sunrisers to enable his team to cross the line in a nip-and-tuck battle. If Kuldeep and Khaleel are both on song – as they were against the Knight Riders on April 10 – or if Kuldeep and fellow left-arm spinner Axar Patel perform well – as they did against Punjab Kings on April 20 – a big win is likely. 

Kuldeep will be in business on Sunday at the DY Patil Stadium as the pitches here may be two-paced and the grass covering uneven. Going by the last few matches played at this venue, expect another low-scoring affair.  

The Capitals have been effective as a batting group, too, without many batters dominating the run charts. David Warner has made it to the top five after a determined 92 this week, but there have been small but important contributions from Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Rovman Powell and Axar.

According to Stephen Fleming, the head coach, the Super Kings have been poor in all facets of the game this season. In the recent past, however, their performances have been good. They are paying the price for a lightweight bowling attack – that seemed to be the major difference between a victory and a defeat in the previous game against the Royal Challengers. 

On Sunday, the team management will expect more from Ravindra Jadeja and M. Theekshana, the two major spinners in their line-up. It will be a bonus if fast bowler Mukesh Choudhary has a field day, as he had at the same venue on April 21 against Mumbai Indians. 

The batting has started to become more reliable; Ambati Rayudu and Ruturaj Gaikwad are now starting to show their prowess. But the bowling has to step up against the Capitals to enable a complete performance and a much-needed win.
