New Delhi, H.S.). The Delhi Capitals team will face the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Chepauk this evening. The confidence of the David Warner-led Delhi team is very high at the moment after a resounding win over RCB at home.
Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh believes that two consecutive wins have taken the confidence of this team to the next level. However, Warner’s lack of runs with the bat is a matter of concern for Delhi, who are at the bottom of the points table.
In the Star Sports show Cricket Live, Harbhajan said, ‘After winning two consecutive matches, the confidence of Delhi Capitals has increased but captain David Warner’s lack of runs in the last few matches is a cause for concern. Yes, some young players have come forward and are taking responsibility, but Delhi’s problem is still where it started. He was on the last rung even then and is still there.
CSK, on the other hand, are second on the points table and the MS Dhoni-led side are looking favorites to finish in the top four. Former India cricketer Irfan Pathan lauded MS Dhoni for making those brilliant tactical moves and helping CSK take the lead.
Irfan said, “CSK is certain to qualify for the playoffs. Now CSK will try to make a place in the top-2. I always say that whenever a team comes to its home ground, it is even more dangerous. ‘Chacha Chaudhary’ Dhoni closes the stadium door in his home ground and brutally thrashes the opposition team. CSK is a brutal team and it deals with opposition teams in its own way.
Former India cricketer S Badrinath – who has been a part of the CSK setup in the past – believes that CSK’s pace attack is inexperienced but has been managed well by MS Dhoni.
Badrinath said, “CSK’s fast bowling attack looks quite inexperienced and that is a matter of concern. The bowlers have to step up but MS Dhoni has done a good job with his resources.”
Former India cricketer S Sreesanth also echoed Badrinath’s opinion and claimed that his legendary captain knows how to bring out the best from the players.
Sreesanth said, “The biggest quality of MS Dhoni is that he brings out the best in the players. And if they don’t know, he’ll make sure they understand his power. The captain and the team environment is great, the players give their best.”
