The 34th match of IPL 2020 will be held at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium, played between Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings. The match will be kicked off on 17th October (Sunday) at 20:00 (GMT+6).
A team of veterans will be pitted against each other in the second game of the day on Saturday, against a team led by a young captain. So far, Delhi Capitals who led by Shreyas Iyer have had a great run in this tournament, and are positioned at the top of the points table with six wins out of eight games they have played. And, on the other hand, MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings, after managing to win only three out of the eight games they have played, are pegged at the third last position in the points table.
Delhi Capitals got the better of Chennai Super Kings in their last outing against each other, winning the game by a respectable 44 runs. But Chennai Super Kings made some changes after that, which also helped them much. So, in this game, they’d be looking to bounce back and make things even in terms of the head-to-head equation with Delhi Capitals.
Because of the clear sky, the game on Saturday is expected to go on without any interruptions and there is no chance of rainfall too. The temperature will stay around 29 to 35 degrees Celsius.
For the bowlers to bowl on the pitch at Sharjah Cricket Stadium has become even more of a nightmare. There was a time at the start of the tournament when the runs were flowing in the 1st inning, but that could be controlled in the 2nd inning by the bowlers. And, now, as chasing becomes progressively simpler, even that the factor is slightly decreasing.
