DC Vs CSK Key Players
Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, K Rabada
Shikhar Dhawan and Colin Ingram along with skipper Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant are the key figures for Delhi Capitals in terms of batting. Pant looked in ominous form against the Mumbai Indians as he plundered 78 runs off just 27 balls to power his team to a match-winning total of 213.
Dhawan and Ingram too weighed in with handy contributions of 43 and 47 respectively and those knocks would have given them plenty of confidence. Kagiso Rabada and Trent Boult are two of the most feared bowlers in world cricket and they are undoubtedly the main weapons for the Delhi Capitals.
Rabada was the standout amongst the bowlers last time with figures of 2-23 and he will look to deliver another good bowling performance. Boult did not have a good outing at the Wankhede but the Kiwi quick is expected to bounce back and inflict some early damage on Chennai with the new ball.
Chennai Super Kings
Shane Watson, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni
Chennai Super Kings will bank on their big guns Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni to score the big runs against Delhi Capitals. Raina has become the first batsman in the history of the IPL to reach 5000 runs and his knock is going to be very crucial.
Rayudu smashed a fifty against Delhi last year and he will be expected to make a sizeable contribution this time as well. Harbhajan Singh and Imran Tahir were the wreckers-in-chief in the tournament opener against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Both took three wickets apiece to derail RCB’s innings and they are likely to make a big impact with the ball once again. Deepak Chahar was also impressive with his economy of 4.25 and he will be the one to watch out for in the powerplay. Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo are the two players in CSK’s line-up who have the potential to contribute heavily with both bat and ball.

DC vs CSK Match Prediction
Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals are coming back to make convincing wins in their respective matches against each other and they are looking to continue the momentum winning in this match.
team CSK has clearly had the better hand in this match when it comes to head-to-head match record. They have won 8 of their last 10 IPL matches against DC and have won the title in 4 out of the 6 matches against them at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium.
Delhi does have a strong and in-form batting line-up and a challenging fast bowling attack but they lack quality in their spin bowling department. Chennai super kings, on the other hand, has got world-class spinners in form of Imran Tahir, Ravindra Jadeja, and legendary Harbhajan Singh and the wicket at the Kotla is also expected to offer more edge to the spinners.
Now, this is going to favor Chennai Super Kings which is why we are backing them to win this match.
