DC vs CSK Dream11 Match Prediction FREE TEAMS Today IPL Match 17 October

DC vs CSK Dream11 Prediction: Chennai Super Kings face a stern test of stopping the juggernaut of Delhi Capitals today. CSK have returned to winning ways and still are very much in the hunt for the play-offs while Delhi Capitals have gone from strength to strength this year. This match will be played at Sharjah and will be an evening game. We will preview DC vs CSK Dream11 contest.

Delhi Capitals completed a come-from-behind win in their last match against Rajasthan Royals. Batting first, DC were pegged back early by Jofra Archer strikes. But Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer came together for a crucial partnership for the 3rd wicket. Both made 57 & 53 runs respectively to help DC put 161 runs on the board. In reply, bowlers pulled things back after an explosive start from Rajasthan top order. All the bowlers presented good accounts for themselves but fast-bowlers were impressive particularly. Anrich Nortje and Tushar Deshpande took a couple each to help DC defend the total comfortably in the end.

Chennai Super Kings were under pressure going into their last match against Sunrisers Hyderabad. They tried something different and decided to use their left-hand option in Sam Curran at the top. The move paid dividends straight away as Sam Curran played a cameo of 31 to hand CSK a quick start. Faf du Plessis was dismissed on a duck but Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu contributed with 40s in the middle overs. MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja gave a final push to CSK’s innings as they posted 167 runs. In reply, CSK bowlers were clinical and never allowed SRH any chance to chase down that score on a slowing surface. Dwayne Bravo and Karn Sharma scalped a couple each while others also chipped with breakthroughs at regular intervals.

In head-to-head comparisons, Chennai Super Kings are dominant team against Delhi Capitals in the past years. CSK have won 15 matches while 7 matches have gone DC’s way in 22 matches played between these two teams. CSK have maintained a lead of 3-2 over DC in the last 5 matches. In the first meeting this year, Delhi Capitals beat Chennai Super Kings comfortably at Dubai.

Pitch and Conditions

Sharjah has remained the high-scoring venue of three for this year’s IPL. 200+ scores were a routine in the earlier matches played here but scores have come down since the last week. Pitches are getting slower and slower as the matches go by but batsmen should still enjoy Sharjah than the other venues. One side of boundaries would be significantly shorter than the other depending upon which pitch is being used today.

Delhi Capitals Team News

  • There was an injury concern for Delhi Capitals in the last match with captain Shreyas Iyer hurting his shoulder but he looks alright to go for this one.
  • Prithvi Shaw is looking for a consistency with the game he has. Shikhar Dhawan should be high on confidence after playing couple of good knocks recently.
  • Ajinkya Rahane will have to use the opportunities he is getting in absence of Rishabh Pant while Shreyas Iyer's role is to anchor the innings in the middle overs.
  • Alex Carey has not got much time in the middle while Marcus Stoinis and Axar Patel have been magnificent this season.
  • South African pair of Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje have been the best fast-bowling combination in the competition by some distance. Tushar Deshpande also impressed with clarity of thoughts in his first match while Ravichandran Ashwin still remains one of the best in the business as per our DC vs CSK Dream11 prediction.

Captain Picks

For Small Leagues

  • Shreyas Iyer should be a straight-forward pick if he is playing today. His play is more or less like Virat Kohli as he looks for the base first up before taking any risks. And only because of that, if you are looking for a safe bet then he is your man.
  • Anrich Nortje is bowling fireballs at the moment and with every passing match, he is becoming a force to be reckoned with. He has 10 scalps so far from 8 matches.
  • Sam Curran is the best pick from Chennai Super Kings particularly now that he has started opening for them. He makes things happen with his left-arm angle while bowling. And a quick-fire 30 at the top should help your chances without expecting any extravagant things from him.

For Grand Leagues

  • Kagiso Rabada is a handy grand leagues' choice for today. He is the leading wicket-taker in the league with 18 scalps till now. He bowled well in the games at Sharjah earlier and also expecting some of CSK middle order match-ups to remain in his favor today.
  • Faf du Plessis missed out on last couple of innings and he is due for a good one today. He is at third position in run-scoring charts for this year with 307 runs from 9 innings. If Sam Curran at the other end comes off, he should breathe easy and can take his time to set up a platform.
  • Shane Watson is a differential captaincy pick at Sharjah. He had a really poor start to the season and was on the verge of being dropped. But he has turned it around in last week or so with some consistent scores. The prospect of Shane Watson in the middle overs against DC spinners augurs well for his fantasy potential.

Who will win DC vs CSK Today Match Prediction?

As per our Today Match Prediction, Delhi Capitals are a superior team in every aspect of the game but Chennai Super Kings are just beginning to find their mojo. With pitches getting slower, you cannot take CSK for granted. Only because of the venue being Sharjah, Delhi Capitals should close out the deal with their batting firepower today.
