No 1 versus No 7. Form team against flop team. Title contenders facing no-hopers. Game 49 of IPL 2015 in Raipur on Tuesday pits Chennai Super Kings against Delhi Daredevils, but there is little to suggest that the match will be much of a contest. The Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium is Delhi Daredevils’ adopted home ground, but how much at home they feel remains to be seen because they just aren’t getting too much correct. Some close defeats, yes, but for how long can the players and management staff keep offering that as solace to the franchise’s supporters?
With 16 points, CSK have all but confirmed their place in the IPL 2015 playoffs. Delhi Daredevils are out of the running.
Venue: Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium, Raipur
