Chennai vs Delhi in Indian T20 League

In the 12 years of its journey, the Indian Premier League has seen several ups and downs, several teams achieve amazing feats and then the same teams also suffer some disappointing lows. Amidst all of this excitement and the topsy turvy nature of Indian T20 Premier League and T20 cricket in general, the one team that has stood head and shoulders above any other in terms of consistency is Chennai. The MS Dhoni led team has found a way to qualify for the play-offs in every single season of their participation, and very few people would bet against the three-time champions repeating the feat once again in Indian T20 Premier League 2020. 

On the other end of the consistency spectrum is a team that has qualified for the playoffs just four times since 2008 and failed to go beyond that stage even once. Delhi (formerly known as Delhi Daredevils) is probably one of the best examples of how not to build a team, with constant changes in the squad, the support staff and even ownership not letting the team settle into any rhythm.

When it comes to the matches between these two teams, the results have gone the expected way most of the teams, with Chennai winning a majority of the 21 games against Delhi. In the previous edition as well, Chennai won all three games between the two sides quite comfortably, including the play-off game to knock out the Delhi side. 

Speaking of the game between Chennai and Delhi, to be played at the home of the Chennai, the MS Dhoni led side will be overwhelming favourites, having won a staggering 69% of their home games since the inception of Indian T20 Premier League. The young Delhi team will have to play out of their skins if they are to cause an upset.
