DC vs CSK Today Match Prediction & Tips

Delhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

DC will take on CSK in the 13th match of the IPL 2024. The match will be played at the Dr. Y.S Rajasekhara Reddy Stadium in Visakhapatnam and will start at 7:30 PM IST on March 31.

Rishabh Pant’s return to cricket has not been a great one as Delhi Capitals have suffered defeats in both the games they have played. They were comprehensively beaten by PBKS in the first game before they lost to Rajasthan Royals by 12 runs in the second outing. Problems are plenty for the Capitals in terms of their batting. Warner, Marsh at the top have got starts but failed to capitalize. 

DC’s middle order is a problem. Pant is making a return after a long gap and it will be unfair if we expect him to play in the same way he used to before he suffered the accident. He will take some time to get back in the rhythm. Also, Ricky Bhui, Tristan Stubbs, Abishek Porel can blow hot and cold. 

If DC have to put big runs or chase totals, one of Warner and Marsh will have to play through the innings. The team has a few concerns in bowling too. Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel are two quality spinners but their pace attack looks weak. Nortje, Khaleel and Mukesh Kumar are not the best bowlers in the tournament. If they click, well and good, but there are high chances of them getting bashed as well.

Coming to CSK, the Ruturaj Gaikwad-led side was brilliant at home. However, they now will be playing their first game away from home. It is very tough to beat CSK at home given the spin attack but the conditions will favour them in Vizag as well given the spin friendly surface so the team won’t mind. CSK have a well balanced team that can help them win anywhere in the country and most of their players are in great form.

DC vs CSK Match Toss Prediction

CSK would like to bat first if they win the toss as they prefer putting runs on the board and defend. DC, on the other hand, might want to chase as they won’t be sure how the pitch will play given that it will the first match in the city.

DC vs CSK Pitch Report

The surface should be good for batting but spinners will get some purchase out of it. The new ball could move under lights as well. So if the ball is pitched in right area, it can create some problems.

Visakhapatnam Weather Report

The temperature will be around 26 degrees in the evening with no threat of rain. Dew is also unlikely to have any say in the game at this time of the year.

DC Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

Prithvi Shaw has been kept out of the DC playing XI so far but the team will be aware that they can’t bench a match winner like him for long. They don’t have much option but to replace Ricky Bhui with Shaw in the next game.

DC Key Players

  • David Warner- Warner has looked at his fluent best in the two games. He scored 49 in the last game against RR and by the time he was at the crease, DC were ahead in the game. Warner needs to ensure he stays at the wicket and finish the game for his side.
  • Mitchell Marsh- Mitchell Marsh like Warner has looked in great form, but has failed to convert starts into a big score. .Marsh has been in good form in recent times so a big innings should not be counted out anytime soon. 
  • Kuldeep Yadav – Kuldeep Yadav has been excellent. He has shown remarkable consistency in recent times and will be the trump card with the ball against CSK. He is DC’s biggest wickettaker and a good show by him is a must for DC to stay in the game. Kuldeep has so far taken three wickets in two games.
  • Axar Patel- Axar Patel is very underrated but he always does the job for his team. Axar bowled a spell of 1-21 against Rajasthan Royals. He might not get many wickets but creates pressure by bowling tight lines and not giving away runs.

DC Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Abishek Porel, Jake Frazer McGurk, Praveen Dubey, Kumar Kushagra, Rasikh Salam

DC will use Abishek Porel as impact player as they have done in the previous two games. They lack batting depth thus Porel is the most likely candidate to get a slot. He made an impact straight away after he slammed 32 in 10 balls against PBKS.

DC Team Form

DC has been one of the most inconsistent teams in IPL. The team has failed to win the IPL even once. They even failed to reach the playoffs last year.

DC Predicted Playing 11

David Warner, Prithvi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant (c & wk), Tristan Stubbs, Axar Patel, Sumit Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed, Mukesh Kumar

CSK Team News & Playing 11

CSK Team News

The conditions will change a bit but CSK should stick to the combination that yielded positive results in the first two games. Most of the players have done well in two games so a change in playing XI is very unlikely.

CSK Key Players

  • Rachin Ravindra- Rachin Ravindra has made a great start to his IPL career. He has been devastating at the top in the two games so far. Against GT, he looked set for a massive score but was out for 46. But the way he is striking the ball, the crowd might be treated to something special in Visakhapatnam.
  • Shivam Dube- Dube is enjoying the role given to him in CSK. He comes in, tonks a few lusty blows and does the job for the team – easy, isn’t it? Dube has been on fire since IPL 2023 where he scored over 400 runs, including 35 sixes. He smashed five sixes en route to a 23 ball 51 vs GT.
  • Mustafizur Rahman- Rahman has been top notch in the two games. He bagged a four wicket haul in the first game then picked two wickets for 30 runs against GT in previous outing. He was effective in Chennai but Vizag wicket will be easier for batters. However, he has the variations to outfox the batters on any surface so he will be key for CSK.
  • Ravindra Jadeja- Jadeja has not done much as of now but he will play a big role for CSK as IPL 2024 progresses. He can be handy on Vizag surface that might offer some turn to the spinners.

CSK Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Sameer Rizvi, Shardul Thakur, Shaik Rasheed, Nishant Sandhu, Mitchell Santner

CSK unleashed Sameer Rizvi as impact player vs GT and he made a big statement by hitting Rashid Khan for two sixes in an over. He is very likely to be CSK’s impact player in the coming game too. CSK could also give Shaik Rasheed an opportunity if they want to but Rizvi has done enough to get a few more games.

CSK Team Form

CSK were brilliant in the last season and managed to win the fifth IPL trophy after beating GT in the final.

DC vs CSK Head to Head

CSK have enjoyed great dominance over DC in IPL. They have been ruthless over the years but the last few matches, they have been almost unbeatable.

Who will win Delhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings T20 Match?

We suggest backing CSK to win. There is more than one reason to back CSK as winners. CSK are a far stronger side, with quality batting and potent bowling. Also, Capitals have a big disadvantage as they won’t be playing the game at their home ground in Delhi, but in Vizag where the pitch is likely to help the spinners and CSK won’t mind that.
