This is going to be a good challenge, looking forward to it. Till the last ball we need to fight. We are not giving up in any situation. Our mindset is such that we fight till the end."
MS Dhoni:"We'll bat first. There's nothing on the surface, no grass. Looks like a fresh wicket. I am happy with a lot of things. We didn't commit a lot of errors in the last game.

Pitch Report:
"This pitch hasn't taken as much turn as the other one. You wanna bowl when it (ball) is brand new, that would be the key, it'll skid on a little bit, will be relatively quick. Not too much spin, great deck to bat on, win the toss and have a bat" - Simon Doull
* LATEST NEWS: Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer is fit to play tonight
* Toss at 7 pm IST
Hello and welcome to the live coverage of Match 34 of the Indian Premier League 2020 between Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings in Sharjah.
"One thing I have been telling the boys right from the start of this tournament is that I want us playing our best cricket in the back half of the tournament, not necessarily in the front half of the tournament. Yes, things are looking good at this stage of the season, but I am never the one to try and look too far ahead because I know how quickly the IPL can turn around. We have seen teams in the past have six wins from their first six games, and then not go on to make the playoffs. So we'll keep a lid on things, and I still think we're six wins from eight games, but probably haven't played our best cricket yet either," - Delhi Capitals coach Ricky Ponting
STATS THAT MATTER
* An economy rate of 6.31 makes the spinners of Delhi Capitals the cheapest in IPL 2020
* Deepak Chahar has dismissed Prithvi Shaw four times in five innings. The only time he didn't manage to do so came earlier in the season when Shaw was Man of the Match.
