What are the likely line-ups?
Ravindra Jadeja is set to play for Chennai having missed all of England’s tour of India through injury.
Suresh Raina will also return for the men in yellow having missed last year’s tournament.
Chennai could also field their new big-money England recruit Moeen Ali alongside his international team-mate Sam Curran.
Delhi, meanwhile, were rocked by a shoulder injury to their captain Shreyas Iyer during the recent India vs England series.
They are still loaded with Indian stars, though with Pant set to join Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw and Ajinkya Rahane in the batting line-up.
England’s Test match tormenting spinners Ravi Ashwin and Axar Patel are both expected to play, as is Ishant Sharma.
Australian batsman Steve Smith will bring experience and grit to the middle order.
