IPL 8 : CSK v DD – Head to head record 

IPL has begun and the first match of the season, KKR’s win over MI, has definitely proved cracker of an opener as there were sixes flying around, 18 to be precise; bowlers also had their share of limelight as Morne Morkel was at his best yesterday and moreover many catch drops. It had all. We now move on to second day of IPL and the encounter between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Daredevils is expected to be exciting. We bring you head-to-head encounters between the two. 

Delhi Daredevils had begun their IPL season pretty well and somewhere down the road they lost their way, with last two seasons specifically the team has failed to make a mark. This time the team has got Gary Kirsten as their coach, experience in the form Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, JP Duminy and many others.  

On the other hand there is Chennai Super Kings led by captain cool, MS Dhoni. CSK from the past 7 seasons has been among the favourites and has also managed to win the title twice and made it to the final on many occasions. With Michael Hussey back in the team, they would have more solidity in their batting but it will be a tough choice to choose between McCullum, Dwayne Smith and Hussey for openers.

Before we discuss further let us have a recap of how both these teams have fared in their head-to-head encounters:

MoM: Man of the Match

Off the 13 encounters between the two CSK has won 9 of those matches. In the last 5 head-to-head encounters , CSK has won all 5 and will be high on confidence to start their 2015 campaign against DD. But DD is backed by players who are determined to make a mark and get the team back on its path.

MS Dhoni : Captain cool would be player to watch out for this match, he loves playing against the Delhi Daredevils team and his 3 Man of the Match awards them is a proof of that.

Other players to watch out:

Suresh Raina – The newly wed Indian batsman will now also have his lady luck backing him and he leads the list of players to play most matches and score most runs in IPL. We can definitely expect him to have few more records in his kitty this season.

Yuvraj Singh – He would be desperate make his mark and prove why he deserves to be in the Indians Cricket Team and why he deserved a place in the World Cup squad too. Under the captaincy of Duminy and guidance of Gary Kirsten, we can expect the out of Yuvi.

Highest Wicket taker:

CSK: R Ashwin – 80 Wickets

DD: Amit Mishra – 102 Wickets

Highest Run Scorer:

CSK: Suresh Raina – 3325 Runs

DD: Yuvraj Singh – 1851 Runs
