The Qualifier 2 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 will be going to take place between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Delhi Capitals (DC) at the ACA-VCSKA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam on Friday, May 10.
The Delhi-based franchise have never made it to IPL final and thus would be eager to come out with yet another inspirational performance and set up a summit clash with the Mumbai Indians.
Against Mumbai Indians, the Yellow Brigade was found wanting against the spin trio of Rahul Chahar, Krunal Pandya and Jayant Yadav. Despite having loads of experience, the CSK batters were not able to score freely and were restricted to a meagre 131 which Mumbai chased down with ease.
What goes in Delhi’s favour is their fearless brand of cricket which they have displayed throughout this season and their fans would be hoping for another such performance against CSK.

- The match will be played at the ACA-VCSKA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam.

Pitch and Weather Condition/Report:
CSK vs DC is going to be played at the ACA-VCSKA Cricket Stadium, Visakhapatnam.The weather in Vizag is hot but the 7:30 PM start to the game will only help the players. The temperature will hover in the early 30s during the match. The humidity will be at its peak though and it is likely to take a toll on both teams. There is no rain in the forecast and dew might play a crucial role.
