Delhi Capitals Vs Chennai Super Kings Prediction and Preview

Preview

It’s the battle of table-toppers with Delhi and Chennai facing off in the humid city of Chennai. CSK was always expected to be where they are right now, but DC? No one ever really gave them a chance to reach these heights.
Chennai’s biggest strength is the presence of the man named Mahindra Singh Dhoni, who has slipped under the radar and is probably the main man behind each and every victory that CSK has scored. Their biggest weakness? It’s the absence of MS Dhoni as Chennai has lost all the matches he has not been part of.
For DC? Their biggest strength is probably the abundance of talent that the team possesses in such amazing youngsters while their weakness has to be their impetuosity sometimes which has even cost them games.

Form Guide (WWWLW)
Will they make any changes? Should they make any changes? The team that played last time around was quite spin heavy but with Chennai supposably one of the stickiest pitches in the IPL that should just be the way to go about things.
The player under the spotlight
The world had seen a new Rishabh Pant against Rajasthan where he displayed a lot maturity and sensibility while at the same time he was still able to execute his shots admirably. He failed again against RCB and would be looking to right those wrongs this time around.

Chennai Super Kings
Form Guide(LWLLW)
CSK is one of the table toppers but they do need people to start performing. Dhoni and Jadeja should ideally be making a return to the eleven while Bhajji will get his game as well. Du Plessis would make a return as well to the squad.
The player under the spotlight
Du Plessis would be slightly agitated at Watson getting preferred over him but that mostly comes to the scores both have made. Watson has been more established and destructive of the two which won’t go down well with Faf. He’d be looking to put the marker down soon and make an impact.

Pitch
It’s a sticky wicket at Chennai and a high scoring game is a rarity in that case. The teams could be targeting a 150 score at best to stay competitive.
Prediction
If Dhoni is playing, CSK would look to choke their opposition by keeping them under consistent pressure. DC has a decent slow bowling lineup and we predict DC to win this game.
