Vivo IPL Delhi Daredevils vs Chennai Super Kings Live Score: The Mahendra Singh Dhoni led squad will be eyeing the top spot on the Vivo IPL 2018 points table

With the playoff berth already in the bag, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) takes on a listless Delhi Daredevils (DD) in a rare dead rubber clash of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Friday. The M S DHONI led squad is eyeing the top spot on the vivo IPL points table alongside SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) , whom they defeated carefully in their previous game. CSK have shown wonderful consistency this season after missing out the previous 2 seasons. They were hard against the table toppers Hyderabad, who boast of the best bowling attack in the tournament.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) has also adjusted fine to their new home ground in Pune after their Chennai games were moved due to the Cauvery water argument between Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. Their opening grouping of Ambati Rayudu and Shane Watson has worked brightly while chasing big totals as well as setting them. Rayudu, with 535 runs at 48.63 average, has been their stick out player which was acknowledged by Dhoni after the opener smashed an unbeaten 100 against SunRisers.

The bowling has not stood out separately but has done the job as a unit. Shardul Thakur has been their leading wicket taker with 11 scalps, followed by Dwayne Bravo, who has picked up nine. The experienced spin duos of Harbhajan Singh and Ravindra Jadeja have been effective at keeping things stretched.
CSK will get to fine tune their game against Delhi Daredevils, a team which has been below par yet again. Getting the famous Ricky Ponting on board as a coach and a change in captaincy in the middle of the competition too has not helped the struggling side.

They have had the much needed break of 5 days and will be fresh going into today's match. They are playing for pride and would like to be on the winning side in their remaining 2 games. The management handed out vivo IPL debuts to Sandeep Lamichhane, Abhishek Sharma and Junior Dala in the previous game against RCB.
