A crucial few days for Delhi Capitals

Delhi currently has five wins from ten games. The team is finally starting to look dangerous with the likes of Rovman Powell and Mitchell Marsh doing well. The points table is still wide open and DC can force an entry into the playoffs with a few wins. Hence, the upcoming game against CSK is important in that context. Earlier, when DC was riddled with a similar issue, they had done well in the subsequent game. The management will expect a similar display of character against the defending champions.
