    DC vs CSK: Prediction

    It’s do or die situation for CSK. They need to win almost all their remaining games to get an entry into the playoffs. After defeating the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last encounter, CSK has gained much-needed confidence to change their fortunes around for the remainder of the tournament. But things won’t be as easy as it might sound for the men in yellow. This time at the opposition, they have a strong Delhi Capitals side who are currently on a roll.


    Delhi Capitals:

    • DC has a strong batting line-up. Top-4 packed by top Indian batsmen along with Stoinis and Carrey makes them a strong force.
    • The Proteas duo of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje has been impressive in this tournament so far.
    • The current batting form of their captain Shreyas Iyer is a huge boost to this Delhi side.
    • A well balanced and settled batting eleven.

    Chennai Super Kings:

    • Sam Curran has proved himself to be a genuine T20 all-rounder. If CSK can use him fruitfully, then they can turn around their fortunes.
    • Faf du Plessis is in terrific form with the bat. He is one of the top leading run-getter of the IPL 2020 so far.
    • With pitches slowing down, CSK is sure to gain more advantages than any other team in the competition.


    Delhi Capitals:

    • Rishab Pant is injured, which has weakened their finishing a bit.
    • With Mishra and Ishant ruled out, the domestic bowling department has been weakened a bit.

    Chennai Super Kings:

    • Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson in the last few matches are the only players who are providing timely support with the bat for CSK. If the contributions from others remain poor as before, then they are sure to be knocked out.
    • The form of MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja is a huge worry.
    • What CSK lacks the most is intent, even while chasing humungous totals, they are playing without any intent.
