DC opt to bowl vs CSK, Jadeja misses out
- Delhi Capitals won the toss and opted to bowl first against Chennai Super Kings
- Former CSK skipper Ravindra Jadeja will be missing from action
- Shivam Dube replaces him in the playing eleven
Risbhan Pant-led DC have made two changes to their playing eleven.
"I think wicket is on the decent side. We want to chase. The season has been up and down. We are focussing on the positives. It is going to be a good match. I have learnt a lot from him (MS). Let's see how I execute them. Two changes for us. KS Bharat and Axar come in for Mandeep and Lalit Yadav," Rishabh Pant said after winning the toss.
Former CSK skipper Ravindra Jadeja will be missing from action as Shivam Dube replaces him in the playing eleven.
"We would have bowled first looking at our combination. But toss is not in our control. We had a bad season earlier but we made the most of it. It really helped us. When there are a few changes after a big auction, sometimes you need to see what is the best combination. Jaddu is not fit and Dube comes in," CSK skipper MS Dhoni said.
