The pitch at the Wankhede always been a flat/ pace favourable red soil track . Batting may not be all that easy. Fielding first and knowing how the pitch behavesshould be a strategy . The temperature will be around 31 degrees Celsius with the humidity mostly in the 60s. There’s no chance of a Rain.
1 st Match - CSK vs DC : Saturday Night cant be better , than a match between Dronacharya and Eklavya . A fight between captaincy which we are eager to see . Many question arriving , whether Pant can match the captaincy level of Dhoni or Dhoni will face a defeat against his student . No one knows whats going to happen , but clearly this match will show the future of Indian Team .
Coming to teams , there might be some changes which we need to follow .
First coming to CSK , K Gowtham may become a X factor for Csk . The 19 year old uncapped player might show some good cricket . But we are all waiting for the all round performance of Shrdul Thakur after this current form with Indian Team .A big knock from Raina may change the course of the game .
Coming to DC ,we are expecting a big captain's knock from Rishab Pant . Marcus Stoinis will be the X factor in this game . The remaining squad will remain the same as the last season. Smith might show some shots but his low strike rate may show some problems .
