The match between the two finalists of the IPL 2021 promises to be exciting and interesting. The two strongest teams will meet in a duel in the 2022 IPL schedule and show how much they have changed over the past year.
CSK strengths and weaknesses
The Chennai Super Kings are one of the most dominant and popular teams in IPL history. Over the 14 years of its existence, the company has won the championship 4 times and reached the IPL final 9 times. Last year, Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals was one of the most exciting matches, and this year, many fans are expecting an incredible spectacle. For bettors around the world, this opens up opportunities to make a successful bet. However, before placing a bet, it is necessary to analyze the lineups of teams, their potential, and opportunities in the match.
First of all, bettors should pay attention to the composition of the players who were retained at the end of the auction. And it came as no surprise to anyone that the team retained MS Dhoni, one of the most talented cricket players and a captain who is able to lead the team to victory, which he successfully did last year. Also, for the IPL 2022, the team retained Ravindra Jadeja, an all-rounder who holds the status of the greatest fielder and batter Ruturaj Gaikwad, who showed breakthrough opportunities in CSK. In general, the team has a very experienced roster, which has more than one match in both test and T20 formats.
However, experience also brings with it one of the main weaknesses – the age of the players. The team as a whole is replenished with experienced players, however, their age exceeds 30 years, which affects the overall endurance. Even the strongest players are prone to fatigue and this can play a negative role, especially in the case of such long cricket matches. This can significantly play into the hands of DC, who, on the contrary, have replenished with young and fresh players who will be able to stay on the field for a much longer time.
DC strengths and weaknesses
If we consider the Delhi Capitals, then here you can see a much more interesting picture in terms of the composition of the team. Thanks to the last two years of breakthrough matches, the coaches and the “backbone” of the team have formed a clear understanding of what approach can be taken to achieve the desired result. And at IPL 2022, the team is expected to have an even higher level of play, as well as well-thought-out strategies and approaches in matches with all IPL participants.
Looking at the details of the Delhi Capitals’ auction results, one can look at the retention of the top four scoring players for the 2022 IPL, including captain Rishabh Pant, who managed to lead the team to the final and finish second, demonstrating DK’s ability and strength. The team also retained Aksar Patel, a strong left-handed bowler, and batsman, who is versatile in all key positions on the field, which he proves with his game. In general, the team is filled with young players who are able to withstand the grueling game on the field. However, they do not have the same experience as CSK, so this decision can be called a double-edged sword. As a result, fans will be able to see that this match promises to be really exciting and will show how different approaches of the teams will show themselves in action.
