CSK vs DC Dream11 Prediction: Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni would be hoping that Match 7 between his side and Delhi Capitals would turn out to be lucky for him considering that No. 7 (his jersey number for India and CSK) has always brought him good fortunes, as he is once again in the news, but this time for the wrong reasons. His decision to bat himself at No. 7 (again that number!) and only play shots in the last overs, when all was already lost, in the defeat against Rajasthan Royals raised many eyebrows. CSK would be looking forward to hosting Delhi, a team they have been bullying since 2008 with a 15-6 win-loss record, knowing very well that Delhi is not the team it used to be a couple of seasons ago. DC got out of jail against KXIP when they stopped the Punjabis from scoring 1 of the final 3 balls taking the match into the one-sided Super Over.
CSK vs DC Dream11 Match Details
Indian Premier League Season 13
Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals
Date – Friday, 25th September 2020
Time: 7:30 PM (IST); 6:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue – Dubai International Stadium, Dubai
Pitch Report: The pitch has shown that the batsman has to get set and play good shots to score quick runs and that’s why the average score in T20s over the past one-and-a-half years is in 150s. Fast bowlers with hit-the-pitch deliveries, slower-bouncers and cutters have been effective taking 4 wickets per game compared to spinners’ two.
Team News CSK: Ambati Rayudu after the match-winning knock against Mumbai Indians missed the following game against RR because of hamstring and is likely to miss this match too. Also, Dwayne Bravo has missed the opening two games because of knee injury and is out of the game.
Team News DC: R Ashwin started brilliantly taking two wickets in his first five balls but injured his shoulder trying to stop a single of his last delivery of the over, and that ended his match. He is on a quick road to recovery but is expected to be rested in this Dream11 Team Prediction encounter.

CSK vs DC Dream 11 Prediction Fantasy Cricket Tips
Sam Curran: The Zimbabwe-born English all-rounder playing for Chennai has been sensational in the first two matches and deserves to be your captain. He is certain to bowl his 4 overs and also will get an opportunity to bat. So far, he has 4 wickets in two matches and already has 4 Sixed to his name.
Shreyas Iyer: It was Iyer who got some momentum in the Delhi batting after their top-3 had failed. In his innings of 39, he hit 3 huge sixes and looked in ominous form. He is a class batsman and can takeoff anytime he wants. A good option indeed to consider in this CSK vs DC Dream11 match.
Shane Watson: Watson fell early against MI due to a perfect in-swinger by Trent Boult but was looking good against RR (33 of 21) before a wild slog against leg-spinner Rahul Tewatia cut-short his innings. Watson looks fit and he is unstoppable once he gets set, watch out for him!
Kagiso Rabada: Delhi’s Super-Over specialist Rabada is lethal in the regulation overs too and he showed us that with a brilliant spell against KXIP (4-0-28-2). He is a good player to have because he goes for wickets in the death overs. A no-brainer to consider in CSK vs DC Dream11 Today's Match Prediction game.
MS Dhoni: Anyone who has followed MS Dhoni’s career will know that the man transforms the moment someone doubts his abilities or states that “he may be getting too old for this”. One should never count out MSD and believe us when we say that he will be a man possessed come Delhi match.
Rishabh Pant: The master and his prodigy! To be fair to MS Dhoni, Pant seems far far away from what Dhoni achieved, both with the bat and with the gloves, at least in international cricket. However, it is IPL and Pant is a superstar here. He struggled against KXIP even though he scored 31 runs and would be hoping for a better connection.
CSK vs DC Dream11 Wicket-Keeper Pick
MS Dhoni: You should not look past MS Dhoni in this match even though there is a tempting option in Rishabh Pant. Dhoni will be angry, even though he will never show or admit to it, after what followed the loss against RR and he will be looking to take all his anger out on Delhites!
CSK vs DC Dream11 Most Affordable Players
Ruturaj Gaikwad (Credits 8): CSK management has been vocal about the fact that they see Gaikwad as a suitable replacement for Suresh Raina. It is a huge comparison for the youngster who ran down the wicket and got himself stumped for a golden duck vs RR. But CSK stands behind their players and expect Gaikwad to have a good game today.
Mohit Sharma (Credits 8): He made his name playing for CSK and now he is playing for DC against them. Mohit does have the ability to swing the new ball and dismissed KL Rahul in the first game. He will be eager to make a mark against his former teammates.
