DC vs CSK today match prediction: CSK have finally looked like a settled side for once in their IPL journey in this year. The move to open with Sam Curran turned out to be a master stroke by MS Dhoni and one may even argue that this should have happened at the start of the season but it’s never too late for CSK as they are very much intact for a playoff spot. The champion all rounder in DJ Bravo has been in terrific form. MS Dhoni has been back to his comfort zone where he toys with ample bowling options and in the process underbowls few of his bowlers.
Delhi Capitals might be in for a major setback as their captain Shreyas Iyer might not take part in the game as he injured his shoulder in the previous game against RR. They are already without their two major men in their middle order in Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer. It is going to be a daunting task for DC to overcome MS Dhoni's men in this all important fixture.
In today IPL match prediction, let us discuss the strengths and weaknesses of both the teams.
Delhi Capitals (DC)
Their fast bowling duo and the spin bowling duo has been their strength. Its pretty straightforward. Their veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan has hit form and should augur well in the absence of Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer. The form of Marcus Stoinis has been a big advantage throughout this season.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
The form of Sam Curran with the bat will be a massive boost along with Shane Watson who looks at ease facing spinners in the middle overs. Their death bowling looked good with Dwayne Bravo unleashing his variations at death.
Delhi Capitals ( DC)
Their batting looks very bleak without Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer and in all likelihood, Shreyas Iyer might miss the game as well. These 3 are their core of their middle order. DC will be broken without these 3 guys against in form MS Dhoni's team.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK)
The form of Faf Du Plessis who started the season with a bang has been off color in the previous few games. The explosive MS Dhoni is yet to come to the party in this season. With wickets slowing down, these are the only weaknesses for CSK at the moments.

DC vs CSK dream11 team for today’s match
In dream11 prediction, let us see the players who can fetch points in fantasy teams
Shikhar Dhawan: The southpaw is in good form with back to back fifties and he might well captain the side who might want to take the responsibility and get the bulk of the runs.
Sam Curran: He is the most valuable player for CSK. He has been given the new role to open the innings. He can score some quick runs if he exploits the field restrictions and also bowls with the new ball.
Anrich Nortje: He is bowling serious pace and might return with handful of wickets once again. He has picked 10 wickets in the competition so far.
Kagiso Rabada: The purple cap holder. He took a solitary wicket in the pervious game and once again the onus will be on Kagiso Rabada to restrict the in-form opposition.
Other picks: Shane Watson, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur and Karn Sharma can all fetch good points in fantasy leagues.
