A CSK win could seal Qualifier 1 berth
- CSK have 15 points from 13 games.
- A loss would mean LSG, RCB and MI can topple them
In a crucial game of IPL 2023 league phase, Chennai Super Kings are up against a resurgent Delhi with a place in the top two up for grabs. If they win, they will be favourites to play at home in Chennai against Gujarat in the 1st qualifier. Chennai Super Kings have odds of 1.65 to beat Delhi Capitals.
Delhi, on the other hand, have won three of their last five games and have been a different unit ever since being kicked out. Delhi Capitals have odds of 2.19 to beat Chennai Super Kings.
Head-to-head record, DC v CSK
The head-to-head record is in favour of Chennai Super Kings, who have 17 victories as against 10 by Delhi Capitals over the years. In 2022 when these teams met, Chennai came out on top.
Considering the conditions at the venue, the team winning the toss might want to bowl first to look to chase down a target with the help of dew.
Chennai Super Kings are favourites to win the clash, but it won’t be a straightforward game for them against a Delhi side that has momentum with them. CSK have a win percentage of 70% to win the match.
The Arun Jaitley stadium has witnessed some bizarre matches so far this season with the average score around 160-170.
Pitch and conditions
The pitch at the venue is generally good for batting but spinners could get significant aid, especially if the dew isn’t huge.
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: On a two-paced wicket, it is rather difficult to judge Pathirana’s slower ones and yorkers and he could be CSK’s best weapon this game.
David Warner: Having rediscovered his touch, Warner could destroy CSK’s spinners on this track and topple their plans.
