New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings will seek to settle scores against Delhi Capitals in their return leg clash of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Saturday. Delhi’s campaign was beset by a five wicket defeat against Mumbai Indians earlier this week and they will be hoping to get back to the winning ways tonight. 

Chennai has had a mixed outing in the tournament so far, having registered just three wins in eight matches. A win tonight with a big margin can get a spot in the top four of the points table. Delhi Capitals have been great in all the three department, especially bowling, and will be hoping to regain its top spot with a win tonight. 

Chennai had suffered a massive 44 run defeat when the two teams had last met in the tournament. Here’s all you need to know ahead of their second clash against each other:
