Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update – Indian T20 League 2020, Match 7

Rishabh Pant has a decent record against Chennai in the T20 league.

Match Details:

The 7th match of the Indian T20 League 2020 will be played between Chennai and Delhi at the Dubai International Stadium.

This game is scheduled to start at 07:30 PM IST (06:00 PM local time) (02:00 PM UTC). The game will be telecasted on the Star Sports Network (Available in English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Bengali). Also, live streaming will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.


Both the teams competing in this match, have had a very eventful run in the tournament so far. After starting their campaign in the T20 League, team Chennai’s journey got slightly derailed when they suffered a defeat by the hands of Rajasthan in their second match. They will be looking for a win in this match and get back to winning ways, as these losses at the early stages may cost them dearly going ahead.

Team Delhi on the other hand, in their very first match which they played against Punjab, found themselves in the middle of a super over, which they somehow managed to pull it their way. So, coming into this match, they would be prepping vigorously for a win that would give them some momentum on their hands. This match is all set to be yet another nail-biter of a game.
