Inside CSK:

The team has played five matches in Mumbai. Now they will play in Delhi where the surface is slow. But this will be an advantage for CSK. The team has quality spinners in the squad and batsmen who can handle spin well.

We can see costly Krishnappa Gowtham in this match replacing any of the fast bowlers. Imran Tahir has returned to the squad in the last match. He may continue today.

Inside SRH:

The team is struggling to find their best combination on a slow surface. They have tried many combinations but nothing is going for them. Bhubaneswar Kumar has some injuries. It is not sure he will be able to play or not. Khaleel was too expensive in the last match. Sandeep may replace him.

We may see Jason Holder replacing any of the top order overseas batsmen. Holder has extra bounce which can trouble the CSK batsmen. But it is a tough call for the team.

Samad is also injured and may not feature in this match. Vijay Shankar and Kedar Jadhav are handling the middle order.
