Two times champions of the Indian Premier League and third position holder on the table of the previous season, Chennai Super Kings, will take over Delhi Daredevils in their opening game of the new chapter. CSK appeared in 14 matches in IPL 2014, won nine, surrendered five and gathered 18 points at a net run rate of +0.385. They were overpowered by Kings XI Punjab in Qualifier 2 with a difference of 24 runs on May 30, 2014, at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
Delhi Daredevils performed badly in the seventh edition, were placed at the bottom with two mere victories and 12 losses. They will try to make a new beginning while forgetting their poor display and re-emerge their strength against the mighty CSK who look stronger than ever.
Brendon McCullum was one of the most attacking batsmen of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, as MS Dhoni, Faf du Plessis and Suresh Raina performed equally well. Dwayne Smith, Michael Hussey, Ankush Bains and Mithun Manhas will be a part of their strong batting line-up while Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja and Irfan Patahn are seasoned all-rounders. The deadly bowling attack comprises Mohit Sharma, Kyle Abbott, Ravichandran Ashwin, Samuel Badree, Matt Henry, Ronit More, Ashish Nehra, Ishwar Pandey and Pawan Negi.
Yuvraj Singh will try to make an impression for Delhi Daredevils in the coming tournament and rest of their batting will revolve around Jean-Paul Duminy, Mayank Agarwal, Srikar Bharat, Quinton de Kock, Chidhambaram Gautam, Travis Head, Manoj Tiwary, Kedar Jadhav Marcus Stoinis and Saurabh Tiwary. Angelo Mathews is a class all-rounder and their competent bowling unit will be guarded by Mohammed Shami, Zaheer Khan, Amit Mishra, Albie Morkel, Shahbaz Nadeem, Gurinder Sandhu, Jaydev Unadkat, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Imran Tahir.
