IPL 2019: CSK vs DC Preview Dream11 Prediction

It’s match 50 of IPL 2019. Two sides who have already qualified for the playoffs go head-to-head in Chennai. However, stakes are still high, as a top two finish is up for grabs.

Incredibly, Chennai Super Kings are in a bit of a form slump. They have lost three of their last four games, two of which there was no MS Dhoni. The CSK skipper is in doubt for this clash, with coach Stephen Fleming saying he is progressing well after being quite sick during the week. Does CSK’s fate today rest on Dhoni’s availability? Or can CSK lock in a top two spot even if he misses this game?

Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, have won six out of their last seven games. Even better, they have won two home games in a row, where they were struggling earlier in the season. The slow-low track at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium took time to adjust to, and now they will play at a ground that is also slow, low and spin-friendly. DC can make a big statement with a good performance today, especially considering they haven’t played in the playoffs for a number of seasons?

Key to a CSK win

CSK have the lowest scoring rate in the powerplay (6.4). This increases to just 6.9 in the middle overs. This has caught up with them a little in recent matches, losing two matches without MS Dhoni and nearly winning vs RCB after a whirlwind knock from the captain. With Faf du Plessis back in consideration for selection, the onus is on he and Shane Watson to provide a sharp start for CSK. Of course, this is no easy task against IPL 2019’s premier bowler Kagiso Rabada, so CSK have to target other bowlers. Then, can the likes of Kedar Jadhav and Ambati Rayudu play with some impetus after a tournament of slow scoring by them both? What about Suresh Raina?

Also, can CSK overcome DC’s dangerous top order? Shikhar Dhawan has turned his tournament around and Prithvi Shaw continues to threaten without going on. This places onus on powerplay specialist Deepak Chahar to come up with the goods early. Then, against a hard-hitting middle order, CSK can look to build pressure with Dwayne Bravo and their spinners. Can CSK put on a better showing in the field?

Key to a DC win

Shikhar Dhawan’s transformation has played a key role in DC’s success in recent times. His duck against RCB at the Chinnaswamy was the turning point for him, since scoring 299 runs in six matches at 59.80. This includes three straight half-centuries, which makes him a key man in this clash. Onus is also on Prithvi Shaw to convert his starts, setting a platform for the likes of Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and new death-over specialist Sherfane Rutherford. Can DC’s batsmen get the better of CSK’s attack on a slow, turning track?

Also, can Kagiso Rabada further increase CSK’s powerplay woes? He has been superb for DC this season, and can create more joy with early wickets. Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson are two danger men to get the better of, and with the CSK middle order up-and-down, DC can employ their spin to build pressure. If Dhoni is indeed fit to play, DC need to ensure he is under pressure to get CSK across the line. The same applies to the likes of Dwayne Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja (if picked).
