Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings will meet each other in match number 34 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 season. DC are in prime form and are second with 12 points, trailing leaders Mumbai on NRR. Meanwhile, CSK are searching for their fourth win.
DC have hit the right chords and they look like a well-knit unit waiting to kill opposition teams. The batting is sorted with players taking up responsibilities. Meanwhile, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje have been terrific with the ball.
CSK will be wanting to script a second successive win and DC need to be wary of MS Dhoni’s side. Against SRH, CSK changed their dimensions a bit and that worked so well. They will want a similar approach against Delhi.
DC vs CSK : Dream11 team prediction
Batsmen: Shreyas Iyer (c), Ambati Rayudu, Shikhar Dhawan, Shane Watson.
Wicket-keeper: MS Dhoni.
All-rounders: Sam Curran (vc), Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel.
Bowlers: Shardul Thakur, R Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada.
Rationale behind the Dream11 team
The batting gets the desired depth with senior players on offer. Dhawan and Iyer are the in-form batsmen, whereas Rayudu and Watson are scoring some useful runs. Dhoni is the keeper-batsman.
Three all-rounders in the form of Axar, Stoinis and Curran come in. All three are consistent
performers. As far as the bowling is concerned, we have three regular wicket-takers in the mix.
Probable starting XI
DC – Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Alex Carey (wk), Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Tushar Deshpande, R Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, A Nortje.
CSK – Sam Curran, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Karn Sharma, Piyush Chawla, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur.
It could be a close battle. We fancy DC to get the job done.
In 22 meetings, CSK have won 15, whereas DC have sealed 7 wins.
