Match Preview

IPL is into a crucial stage where every team is looking to get 2 crucial points and move ahead in the points table with the qualification race intensifying. Delhi capitals are placed at the top comfortably and a couple of wins will seal their place in the qualifiers. Delhi Capitals are currently handicapped in the middle order due to the absence of Rishab Pant and Shimron Hetmyer. CSK on the other hand are having a poor season so far. CSK will take confidence from their victory in the last match and will look to continue their form and momentum. They will fall back in the qualification if they lose more matches. We can expect a cracking contest between two quality teams.

Teams Preview

Delhi Capitals Preview

Shikhar Dhawan (57 runs) and Shreyas Iyer (53 runs) played superbly after the quick fall of two quick wickets to stabilize the innings. Their middle order failed to accelerate in the final overs as they scored just 39 runs of 36 balls. They finished with an average score of 161 runs in their 20 overs.

Delhi Capitals have one of the best bowling line-up this season with both pacers and spinners performing well. Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada bowled consistently at 140+ kmph and took 3 wickets between them. Ravi Ashwin and Axar Patel bowled with great control and accuracy in the middle overs and never gave any free runs.

Top players to bet on:

Shikhar Dhawan – Dhawan made a conscious effort to improve his strike rate last game scoring 57 runs of 33 balls.  He will look to continue his good hitting form in this match too.

Anrich Nortje – Nortje delivered the fastest ball in the IPL history last match and he bowled at 155+kmph consistently.   He dismissed the dangerous Jos Buttler and had match figures of 4-0-33-2.

Delhi Capitals Predicted Playing XI:

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer (c), Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Tushar Deshpande, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje

Chennai Super Kings Preview

CSK batted first for the first time in 8 matches this season. Sam Curran`s move to open the batting reaped rewards as he set the tone in power play with quick-fire 31 runs. Shane Watson (42 runs) and Ambati Rayudu (41 runs) built a vital partnership in the middle but failed to accelerate. MS Dhoni (21 runs) and Ravi Jadeja (25 runs) finished the innings with a flourish.

CSK bowlers never allowed the opposition any upper hand in the chase as they applied the chokehold. Karn Sharma and Dwayne Bravo took 2 wickets each but were a little expensive. Shardul Thakur, Sam Curran, and Ravi Jadeja chipped in with a wicket each in the middle overs.

Top players to bet on:

Shane Watson – Shane Watson has three 40+ scores in the last 4 matches and looking to regain his form and touch with the bat. We expect him to make a big score in this match.

Ravi Jadeja – Jadeja chipped with his all-round performance last game scoring 25 runs off 10 balls and then coming up with a vital bowling spell of 3-0-21-1 in the match.   

Chennai Super Kings Predicted Playing XI:

Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (c & wk), N Jagadeesan/Piyush Chawla, Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Karn Sharma

Weather Conditions

Sharjah has a humid and breezy climate in the evening on the match day. We can expect dew to make an appearance in the second innings troubling the bowlers to grip the ball.

Venue Details

The scores have come down drastically in the last few matches at Sharjah as the teams are scoring just 170+ scores instead of massive 200+ scores. Bowlers might look to use their variations to good effect on this track.  

Toss: To Bowl

Teams batting first have a 5-3 win-loss record at this venue, but the last match at this venue was won by chasing team and spinners found it tough to grip the ball. We expect both teams to chase the total at this venue.

Winning Prediction

DC is the most complete team of the two teams with both their batting and bowling department performing well together. But they will miss the services of their middle order duo of Pant and Hetmyer and they also have an injury scare of Skipper Shreyas.  CSK batting line-up looked better as they used the all-rounders Jadeja and Sam Curran to great effect. CSK will look to continue the momentum with a win. But, we predict Delhi Capitals to win this match owing to their superior team combination and form.

DELHI CAPITALS WILL WIN THE MATCH
