The Delhi Capitals, who had never won an Indian Premier League cricket playoff match in any of the IPL’s previous 11 seasons, per CricInfo, suddenly find themselves one win away from a berth in the 2019 final, after they chased down a Sunrisers Hyderabad total of 162 with one ball and two wickets to spare in Wednesday’s playoff eliminator. But to reach the championship game, where three-time champs Mumbai Indians await, Delhi will have to get past perhaps the most popular team in the IPL, and another three-time title holder, Chennai Super Kings. The second qualifier match — the next-to-last game of the 2019 IPL season — will live stream from Visakhapatnam.

Rajasekhara Reddy ACA–VDCA Cricket Stadium, known as ACA-VDCA for short, in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India.

CSK would appear to be the favorites to return to the IPL final, perhaps even heavy favorites, as they feature a veteran side led by India cricket legend MS Dhoni. In addition, in the last meeting between the two sides in the IPL’s group stage, Chennai bowled out the Delhi side for just 99 runs. Delhi finished third on the table, despite equalling CSK and Mumbai with 18 points, per ESPN. CSK also won the previous matchup between the two teams.
Super Kings also have a considerable edge in experience, with Dhoni and Suresh Raina already playing 22 IPL playoff games between them, while the entire Delhi Capitals roster has only 27 games of IPL playoff experience, per CricBuzz.
