Indian T20 League 2023

DEL vs CHE, 67th Match



Delhi and Chennai will square off for the 67th match of the Indian T20 League. The match is scheduled at the Arun Jaitley stadium in New Delhi on Saturday, May 20. 

The home side is out of the playoffs race and is currently placed in the 9th place of the Indian T20 League points table just one spot over Hyderabad with 10 points to their name. The Delhi openers David Warner and Prithvi Shaw started off in a fantastic way unlike what they did in the whole season of the league. They both accumulated 94 runs with contributions of 46 from the skipper and 54 off Prithvi Shaw who was struggling to add runs this season.  Roussouw was the star of the show because of his blistering knock of 82* runs off just 37 deliveries. Phil Salt also finished off remaining unbeaten with 26 runs off 14 balls. All bowlers went expensive except Rahul Chahar and Sam Curran who went below the average of 10. Sam Curran was also the sole wicket-taker from the bowling side, he send both the openers back to the pavilion but overall failed to restrict the flow of runs. 

While chasing the huge target of 213 runs, Punjab lost an early wicket in the form of their skipper Shikhar Dhawan who got out on a golden duck. Also, their sole centurion Prabhsimran Singh went back scoring 22 off 19 deliveries. It was Atharva Taide and Liam Livingstone’s heroics who carried the match on their back till the very end. While Taide scored 55* runs off 42 balls before going back ‘Retired Out’, Livingstone went on a rampage smashing 94* runs off just 48 deliveries but all went in vain as Punjab lost the match by just 15 runs. These two batters gave their very best and were the only hopes for the Punjab side until the very end. Four batters went out for scoring no run which was the cause which the Shikhar Dhawan led side to chase the mammoth target.

On the other side, Chennai lost their last match at home against Nitish Rana-led Kolkata. They are presently sitting in second place in the points table with 7 wins and 15 points under their belt. In the match against Kolkata, Chennai went on to bat first, Conway scored 30 runs off 28 balls to give a decent start but it was the Kolkata bowlers who fished in the other batters and restricted them to a score of 144 runs. Only Shivam Dube remained unbeaten at a score of 48 runs. Both the mystery spinners, Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy took a couple of wickets each along with Vaibhav Arora and Shardul Thakur who picked up a wicket apiece. 

Nitish Rana and Co. chased down the target in just 18.3 overs. The main contributors were skipper Nitish Rana (57* off 44) and Rinku Singh (54 off 43). Deepak Chahar took 3 wickets and was the only bowler to pick wickets for the Yellow Army.

Pitch and Weather Report

Delhi's Arun Jaitley Stadium is a superb place for the batting side to settle down and focus on the game. Shorter boundaries and a speedy outfield make it simple for the batters to score runs. Unfortunately, there is very little scope for the pace bowlers because of the sluggish surface. Yet, the wicket offers the spinners significant aid, and they have a successful track record on this ground.

The sky will have some patches of cloud on the match day. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be between 42°C - 28°C. The surface assists the batting department in the 2nd inning of the game.

Match Prediction

The Delhi side will be up against Chennai in the match on Saturday. Chennai is the clear favourite in this game as they are in better form than the David Warner-led side. But Delhi will be playing at their home ground and they are now in the mood of ruining other’s Playoffs dream. They also registered a terrific win in their last game in which they disqualified Punjab from the qualification race. They will be confident in this game, but on the other side stands MS and his team, the five-time champions. Hence we fancy the Chennai side to win this game. 


Top Fantasy Picks

David Warner is the highest run-getter for the Delhi side. He scored 430 runs at a strike rate of 128 during which has struck 5 sixes and 62 fours. 

Mitchell Marsh has been the top wicket-taker in his franchise and has taken 12 wickets while bowling at an economy rate of 8.43 and an average of 14. 

Devon Conway is the leading run-scorer for Chennai. He has registered 498 runs at a strike rate of 134. He has hit 13 sixes and 58 fours in the process. 

Tushar Deshpande has been the most promising bowler for the Yellow Army. He struck 19 times this season so far while bowling at an average of 23 and an economy rate of 9.79. 


Risky Captaincy Choice

Prithvi Shaw looked in sublime touch for Delhi in their previous match. We can expect another such performance from him in this encounter versus the mighty Chennai side.
