The clash has been built up as a fight between CSK’s experience and DC’s youthful exuberance. But when commentator Sanjay Manjrekar posed the comparison of CSK’s ‘Dads Army’ versus DC’s ‘Kids Army’, Dhoni said he “doesn’t mind” the comparison as it only increases the “anticipation”.After winning the toss and choosing to bowl first in Vizag, Dhoni said: “I don’t mind that (on Dads Army tag) because all this increases the anticipation. Ultimately, you need to be aged to be experienced, but again, there are pros and cons for everything.”Dhoni is leading a team of seasoned cricketers and IPL veterans including Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Dwayne Bravo, Harbhajan Singh and Imran Tahir among others – all in twilight of their careers. But Dhoni has been able to extract the best out of his aging brigade, thereby making the playoffs for a record 10th time.When DC head coach Ricky Ponting was posed with the same question he conceded that DC have a young side but a number of their players have shown “a certain level of maturity” as well.”It’s important to spend one-on-one time with the youngsters and that’s what I have tried to do. Though they are youngsters, a lot of them have played 5-6 years of IPL as well. So there is a certain level of maturity there,” said Ponting.On the other hand, Shreyas Iyer who is leading the youngest side of IPL 2019 said: “Looks a far better one (pitch) than the previous game. We felt that during practice too. We would have batted first actually, so not a bad toss to lose. We’re unchanged as we don’t want to put pressure on any new player.”advertisementThe winner of the game will meet Mumbai Indians in the all-important final on May 12 in Hyderabad.Also Read | Preity Zinta warns MS Dhoni to be careful: I may just kidnap ZivaAlso Read | IIT Madras asks what should Dhoni do if he wins the toss in question paper.
