Delhi Capitals v Chennai Super Kings
17/10/20, 3pm (BST), Sharjah
Is this the start of something for the Chennai Super Kings?
They have come back from such slow starts to win the tournament before, so after picking up their third win of the tournament, settling on a new plan of attack with the bat – prominently featuring Sam Curran – and spin coming into the game more with the slow wickets, they will fancy their chances against anyone.
Delhi Capitals on the other hand bounced back from defeat to beat the Royals thanks largely to a fiery bowling display. They will likely still be without Rishabh Pant though, and they look a little light with the revamped lineup.
The Capitals remain favourites to win at 4/5, but CSK are tempting dark horses at 1/1.
Faf du Plessis to score over 27.5 runs – 11/10
After a brilliant start with 282 runs in his five knocks, the runs have dried a little for du Plessis in the last three games, but he has still looked good while not necessarily making the scores.
There will be less pressure on him to score quickly with Curran in a new pinch-hitting role, so expect him to quietly go about building a sizable score.
