The Super Kings and the Capitals have met each other 29 times since 2008. CSK have won 19 times while DC finished on the winning side 10 times. In their only meeting at the venue in Vizag back in 2019, the Super Kings won by 6 wickets after chasing down 148. Faf du Plessis, who is currently with the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RC), won the Player of the Match award.

The upcoming DC vs CSK prediction will keep the CSK fans on the edge of their seats as Ruturaj Gaikwad’s men will be looking to win their 3rd match in succession.

Delhi Capitals

The Capitals have not had much to cheer for until now in the tournament. They have lost both their matches and are struggling in the bottom half of the table. They lost to the Rajasthan Royals by 12 runs in their previous game at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. They do have great numbers against the Super Kings and need to be on top of their game to avoid a hat-trick of defeats.

The DC vs CSK prediction will depend on how the Capitals manage to claw their way back after losing back-to-back games.

Delhi Capitals Possible 11: David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Shai Hope, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Ricky Bhui, Tristan Stubbs, Axar Patel, Sumit Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Khaleel Ahmed, Ishant Sharma

Chennai Super Kings

The Super Kings have made a brilliant start to their campaign. They beat RCB in their opening game after which they hammered the Gujarat Titans, captained by Shubman Gill, by 63 runs at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

In the last game, Matheesha Pathirana returned to the CSK XI after being included as an Impact Sub. He looked in good shape and the Super Kings would be delighted with his progress. Gaikwad has also shown immense promise as the new CSK skipper.

DC vs CSK Dream11 prediction

Our DC vs CSK Dream11 predictions for this match:

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Rishabh Pant
  • Batter(s): David Warner, Shivam Dube, Rachin Ravindra, Ruturaj Gaikwad
  • All-rounder(s): Mitchell Marsh, Axar Patel, Daryl Mitchell
  • Bowler(s): Mustafizur Rahman, Kuldeep Yadav, Matheesha Pathirana
  • Recommended captain: Rachin Ravindra
  • Recommended vice-captain: David Warner

We have picked Rachin Ravindra as the captain given how he played in the first 2 games for the Super Kings. In 2 matches thus far, the New Zealand batter has scored 83 runs at an average of 41.50. But it is his strike-rate of 237.14 that shows how brilliant he has been at the top of the order for CSK. Although he has not bowled, one should not forget that Ravindra is a handy left-arm spinner as well.

David Warner is our vice-captain as he is amongst the most consistent batters ever in the IPL. In 2 matches this season, the left-hander has scored 78 runs at an average of 39 and a strike-rate of 141.81 with a top score of 49. CSK’s bowling attack is in good form and Warner needs to take the Capitals off to a decent start with all his experience.

DC vs CSK match prediction: Chennai Super Kings to win

As per the DC vs CSK match prediction, the Super Kings will go into the match as favourites. In their last 4 meetings, the Yellow Army got the better of the Capitals and should be able to make it 5 in a row.

DC vs CSK toss prediction: Chennai Super Kings to win the toss and bat first

As per the DC vs CSK toss prediction, teams should opt to field first. The track will be good for batting throughout and the chasing teams will know the target, something which will be an advantage for them.
