MSD has amassed 4461* runs in 193* IPL matches, at a phenomenal strike rate of 137.94 and recently became the only skipper to have lead his franchise to 100 wins as a skipper.

In the last game, which CSK lost to the Royals, Dhoni faced backlash on social media for his negative tactics. With 217 to win, he walked in to bat at No 7 which upset his fans. Fans would be hoping Dhoni comes up in the batting order and gets among the runs.

CSK has made one change for the match as they have got in Australia's Josh Hazlewood, while Avesh Khan makes the XI for the Capitals along with Nortje. The Capitals will be high on confidence after their win in the Super Over against Kings XI Punjab.

Teams:

Delhi Capitals (Playing XI): Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shimron Hetmyer, Shreyas Iyer(c), Rishabh Pant(w), Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Kagiso Rabada, Amit Mishra, Anrich Nortje, Avesh Khan

Chennai Super Kings (Playing XI): Murali Vijay, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni(w/c), Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, Josh Hazlewood, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla
