Chennai Super Kings face a resurgent Delhi in a critical game of the IPL 2023 league season, with a spot in the top two on the line. If they win, they will be favourites to face Gujarat in the first qualifier at home in Chennai.
Delhi, on the other hand, has won three of their previous five games and has looked like a completely different team since being thrown out.
Head-to-head record, DC v CSK
The head-to-head record favours Chennai Super Kings, who have 17 victories to Delhi Capitals’ ten throughout the years. When these teams played in 2022, Chennai came out on top.
Given the conditions at the venue, the team that wins the toss may choose to bowl first in order to hunt down a target with the help of dew.
The Chennai Super Kings are the favourites to win the match, but they will face a difficult task against a Delhi side riding high. CSK has a 70%
So far this season, the Arun Jaitley stadium has seen some strange matchups, with the average score hovering around 160-170.
Pitch and conditions
The pitch at the site is normally suitable for batting, but spinners could benefit significantly provided the dew isn’t excessive.
Players to keep an eye on…
DC Predicted playing XI:
David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Philip Salt, Rilee Rossouw, Axar Patel, Aman Hakim Khan, Ripal Patel, Anrich Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Ishant Sharma
CSK Predicted playing XI:
Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ajinkya Rahane, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni, Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Matheesha Pathirana, Maheesh Theekshana
Matheesha Pathirana’s slower deliveries and yorkers are tricky to gauge on a two-paced track, and he could be CSK’s finest weapon this game.
David Warner: Having found his touch, Warner has the potential to demolish CSK’s spinners and derail their plans on this track.
