The 7th match of Indian T20 League 2020 will be played between Chennai and Delhi in Dubai. Chennai started their campaign with a win in the season opener against the defending champions, Mumbai. But they suffered a shocking defeat in their second encounter against Rajasthan in Sharjah. In this match, they would like to solve their batting order problem and would expect for MS Dhoni to bat at four or five. However, a poor show by their spinners and an awful last over proved to be the difference that night.
On the other side, Delhi played their first game in Dubai and are better aware of the conditions than Chennai. They would like to put up a clinical performance in this game as they were lucky enough to steal the victory from Punjab in their first game with a super over. They will be hoping for a more stable start from their top order and last match’s game changer, Marcus Stoinis to continue the winning momentum.
