CSK vs DC Dream11 5th Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today Match

Delhi, March 26, Tuesday at 08:00 PM IST

The IPL 2019 caravan arrives in the National Capital, as the rejigged Delhi Capitals gear up to host the defending champions Chennai Super Kings at the iconic Feroz Shah Kotla on Tuesday evening. Both the sides have made a winning start to the tournament and will be looking to continue their run.

MS Dhoni vs Rishabh Pant

The clash also brings up the first open challenge of IPL 2019 between young Rishabh Pant and experienced MS Dhoni. Rishabh Pant was seen challenging MS Dhoni in one of the IPL 2019 promotional teasers and he looks all set after his blistering 78 of 27 balls against Mumbai Indians on Sunday. Delhi Capitals thrashed Mumbai Indians by 37 runs in the opening fixture and Rishabh Pant was the man who created the difference with his knock of 78 runs off just 27 deliveries.

It will be interesting to watch him play against Chennai Super Kings at his home ground. So, can he pull out another blinder or will MS Dhoni get over him easily with his calmness and strategies? Will watch it tomorrow.

On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings look all relaxed and chilled out after the convincing 7 wickets win over Royal Challengers Bangalore in the tournament opener. The spin trio- Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir and R Jadeja booked Royal Challengers Bangalore for mere 70 runs at MA Chidambaram with their turns and can prove out to be the game changer again at Feroz Shah Kotla.

The Kotla pitch is expected to be sluggish like the one in Chennai and if it turns out to be true, CSK will be the favourites to win the clash.

Head to head:

Total – 18

Delhi Capitals – 06

Chennai Super Kings – 12
