Delhi vs Chennai: The Teams Eyeing Mumbai’s Throne

They may not have laid hands on the Indian T20 League trophy yet, but in the early years of the competition, Delhi were as feared as Chennai. Then their paths diverged. As Chennai reached 4 straight finals, winning 2 of them, Delhi slumped to mediocrity. After topping the table and losing in the play-offs in 2012, Delhi missed out on the final stages in six consecutive seasons.

It was only after Ricky Ponting was appointed Delhi coach that they ended the slump, finishing 3rd in 2019 and going one better in 2020. By then, Chennai had served a two-year ban and come back to win a 3rd title.

The head-to-head numbers reflect the different paths taken, with Chennai winning 7 in a row between May 2012 and May 2015. Delhi have won their last 3 matches though, as they’ve established themselves as one of the teams most likely to challenge Mumbai’s recent dominance.

The Chennai team, stocked with veteran players, has rebounded well after missing the play-offs for the first time last season. They’ve won 6 of their 8 matches and are on the threshold of a play-off place. Delhi have an identical record, and are eyeing a third successive season in the play-offs.

Team Delhi and Chennai Full Squad for Indian T20 League 2021

  • Team Delhi Squad
  • Team Chennai Squad

The batting, with Shikhar Dhawan (380) and Prithvi Shaw (308) both having scored 300 runs already, will be even stronger with the return of Shreyas Iyer. Kagiso Rabada was not at his best in the first leg, but Avesh Khan stepped up with 14 wickets. Delhi can also call on Anrich Nortje if needed, with the South African having taken 22 wickets in the UAE last season. Here are some key players who can play a key role for Team Delhi.

    • Rishabh Pant (C)
    • Prithvi Shaw
    • Shikhar Dhawan
    • Shreyas Iyer
    • Ravi Ashwin
    • Kagiso Rabada

Faf du Plessis, who scored 320 runs in the first leg, has a point to prove after having been ignored by South Africa’s selectors for the T20 World Cup. Imran Tahir is also hurting after being denied a last chance at World Cup glory. But with Ravindra Jadeja and Moeen Ali sharing the spin duties so far and Josh Hazlewood available as an overseas bowling option, it remains to be seen if Tahir will get his chance. Here are some key players who can play a key role for Team Chennai.

    • MS Dhoni (C)
    • Faf du Plessis
    • Ravindra Jadeja
    • Dwayne Bravo
    • Moeen Ali
    • Josh Hazlewood
