Will CSK vs DC IPL 2022 match go ahead?
Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals had a joint training session on Saturday. A franchise will require a minimum of 12 players (playing 11 + 1 substitute) to participate in the game, out of which a minimum of seven players should be Indian.
If a team is unable to field 12 players, the game will be postponed to a further date by the BCCI technical committee. However, an official of CSK said that the game will go ahead.
“We understand the match will go ahead, otherwise we would have been informed by now,” said a CSK official.
“It is only a net bowler and all players are in their rooms. So we do not expect changes.”
