Where: M.A. Chidambaram Stadium.

Chennai Super Kings will want to regain their top spot against Delhi Daredevils in the 2013 IPL, after being knocked off the summit by Mumbai Indian’s victory on Monday.
Mumbai secured a dramatic win over Sunrisers Hyderabad which saw the franchise jump above CSK due to their superior net run rate.
The result means that with just two matches remaining before the play-offs, there are three franchises tied on 20 points as Rajasthan Royals are also at the summit after victory over Chennai on Sunday.
For Delhi there is nothing to play for but pride as they can no longer qualify for the play-offs following 10 defeats in 13 matches.
However, avoiding finishing bottom of the pile – an unwanted position they are battling against Pune Warriors India for – will be an achievement in itself for the Daredevils and will also make them a more attractive proposition for new players in next year’s IPL auction.
The Super Kings have lost two of their last three fixtures after going on an eight-match unbeaten run and MS Dhoni will be hoping his side aren’t running out of steam as they head into the crucial stage of the tournament.
Maximum points today would certainly be a morale boost for Chennai and would see them marching into the pay-offs with their heads and confidence held high.
