TOSS: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have won the toss and elected to bat first.

Delhi Daredevils (DD) take on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in match 49 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 at Raipur. DD are more or less out of the competition as they have just eight points from 12 matches and lie seventh on the table. CSK are riding high and have assured themselves a place in the play-offs.  Delhi Daredevils vs Chennai Super Kings, IPL 2015 Match 49 at Raipur: Preview

DD have lost their last four matches. They have an excellent squad, but they have not clicked in the IPL 2015 at all and as a result find themselves struggling at the moment. CSK, on the other hand have been comfortable throughout the tournament as they have been efficient in all departments. They are well equipped in their batting and bowling. They are also led by the vibrant MS Dhoni, who has been spot on in making decisions throughout the tournament. LIVE SCORECARD: DD vs CSK

There is still doubt if New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum will participate in this match or not. New Zealand take on England in the first of three Tests at Lord’s starting from May 21. Nevertheless, he has been CSK’s best batsman by a long margin. DD play for nothing but pride in this match and CSK will want to win.

Squads:

Chennai Super Kings: MS Dhoni (c), Suresh Raina, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohit Sharma, Ashish Nehra, Irfan Pathan, Faf du Plessis, Brendon McCullum, Dwayne Bravo, Dwayne Smith,  Michael Hussey, Ishwar Pandey, Baba Aparajith, Mithun Manhas, Pawan Negi,  Rahul Sharma, Ankush Bains, Pratyush Singh, Ronit More, Eklavya Dwivedi, Matt Henry, Samuel Badree, Andrew Tye, Kyle Abbott.
