Talking about the pitch before the match between Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings (DC vs CSK) at DY Patil Stadium, it is good for the bowlers. Here the fast bowlers will get a good bounce. Therefore, chasing the target of 180+ runs is a big challenge for the teams here. The score of 200 plus has been seen in the very first match of IPL 2022 played at this stadium, which RCB could not defend.
But, the target of 129 runs in the second match also seemed difficult. In the third match, the team batting first here, Rajasthan won. While defending the target of 194 runs, Rajasthan restricted Mumbai to 170. So far this season a total of 15 matches have been played on this pitch. One thing that has been common in these 15 matches has been that if the batsman settles on the crease here, then it becomes very difficult to stop him. But, the team winning the toss would prefer to bowl. In DC vs CSK, it is going to be even more interesting to see whether the side of the match is in the side of a team.
