Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals Team Previews

Chennai Super Kings (Match Odds – 1.99)

In the last two games, Chennai Super Kings openers Ruturaj Gaikwad (99 & 28 runs) and Devon Conway (85 & 56 runs) have been outstanding with the bat. Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, and Robin Uthappa have all played some good knocks but have been inconsistent throughout the season. Moeen Ali and Ravi Jadeja are both out of form and will be looking to get back on track in this match.

Last night, Chennai Super Kings’ spin trio of Ravi Jadeja, Maheesh Theekshana, and Moeen Ali dominated with combined figures of 12-0-75-5. In the power play, Simranjeet Singh and Mukesh Chawdaury will open the bowling, followed by Dwaine Pretorius in the death overs. Dwayne Bravo’s services are sorely missed in the bowling department.

The top players of Chennai Super Kings to watch for in this match are Devon Conway, Maheesh Theekshana and Ruturaj Gaikwad.

Delhi Capitals (Match Odds – 1.80)

In their previous game, the Delhi Capitals smashed their way to 207/3 in 20 overs, with David Warner (92 runs) and Rovman Powell (67 runs) sharing an unbeaten 122-run partnership. Rishabh Pant, Mitchell Marsh, and Prithvi Shaw will form a lethal batting combination, with all-rounders Axar, Lalit Yadav, and Shardul Thakur batting lower down.

The return of Anrich Nortje and Mitchell Marsh, who both played critical roles in their victory last night, strengthens their bowling attack even more. In the previous game, Khaleel Ahmed and Shardul Thakur each took 5 wickets. Kuldeep Yadav leads the team in wickets with 18 and will be supported by Axar and Lalit in the spin department.

The top players of Delhi Capitals to watch for in this match are David Warner, Rovman Powell and Kuldeep Yadav.

Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals Toss Prediction

In the evening games, all captains who have won the toss (38 matches so far) have chosen to bowl first, and we expect this trend to continue in this match as well.

To Win the Toss – Chennai Super Kings – 1.85

To Win the Toss – Delhi Capitals – 1.85

Pitch and Weather Conditions

The pitch at DY Patil has been a little tacky, with uneven bounce, and it may become slower as the match progresses. In this match, we anticipate average scores of 160-180 runs.

The weather in Mumbai is bright and sunny, with little to no chance of rain on match day. In the second inning, Dew could cause problems for the bowlers.

Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals Match Prediction

Delhi Capitals has a lot of all-rounders in the lower order and power hitters at the top and middle of the order, so they have a lot of batting depth. They also have a well-organized bowling unit with a wide range of pace and spin options. Chennai Super Kings’ batting unit has been very unsteady in the middle order, and they currently rely heavily on their openers. With MS Dhoni at the helm, they have a good spin attack but lack experience in the pace department. We expect Delhi Capitals to win this match because they have a better team on paper in terms of batting and bowling.

Delhi Capitals is the favourite to beat Chennai Super Kings at the odds of 1.80.

  • Delhi Capitals currently sits fourth in the points table with 10 points from 10 matches.
  • Chennai Super Kings has 6 points from 10 games and is almost out of the play-offs.
  • So far in this IPL, neither team has won back-to-back games.
