The Chennai Super Kings have won the toss and opted to bowl against the Delhi Capitals in the first IPL qualifier. The two teams will be captained by MS Dhoni and Rishabh Pant respectively, the former electing to pick an unchanged eleven. Pant has decided to make one alteration, bringing in England's bowling all-rounder Tom Curran for Ripal Patel. Being the top two sides in the initial phase of the competition, the winner of this game will advance straight to the final, while the loser will get another opportunity in a further qualifying game.
