Both sides will be aiming for a win, with DC in second spot, and CSK sixth in the eight-team table. The two sides already met in the seventh match of the season, with DC coming out on top thanks to a 64-run knock from Prithvi Shaw. In their last three fixtures, DC have won twice and lost once. Meanwhile, CSK have won once and lost twice. Both sides will be relying on their star players to deliver two points, with a mixture of youth and experience.
Shreyas Iyer: The DC skipper has been inconsistent at times with the bat in IPL 2020. In eight matches, he has scored 298 runs with an unbeaten knock of 88 as his high-score. He also has a strike rate of 135.45, packed with 23 fours and 11 sixes. In his team's previous match against Rajasthan Royals (RR), he scored 53 runs to help his side win by 13 runs.
Marcus Stoinis: The Australian all-rounder has been fantastic for DC in the ongoing season. A big hitter, he has slammed 193 runs in the death overs for Delhi. He has also played the role of match winner against the likes of Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). With the ball, he has grabbed six wickets from eight matches.
Anrich Nortje: In DC's recent win over RR, Anrich Nortje bowled the fastest delivery in IPL history, clocking at 156.22 km/h.

CHENNAI SUPER KINGS
Shane Watson: The former Australian cricketer hasn't been at his best in the ongoing season, but still captain MS Dhoni has stuck with him.

Ravindra Jadeja: The Indian all-rounder has not been at his best since resuming action after the COVID-19 lockdown. Still a crucial cog in CSK's unit, his performances could play a major role in his team's push to the playoff spots. In eight matches, he has scored 126 runs, with a strike rate of 168.00 with 15 fours and four sixes. In the bowling department, he has grabbed four wickets in eight matches, at an economy of 8.69.
