Last year’s runners-up the Delhi Capitals will face one of last season’s great underachievers in CSK. The match will begin at 7:30 pm IST and will take place at a neutral venue, in this case, Mumbai. It’s on April 10 and should pit two evenly-matched sides in what should be a fine match.

What does this code mean?

Chennai Team News

MS Dhoni will be without his two overseas pace bowlers for this one. Josh Hazlewood will miss the whole of the IPL after opting to skip it as a way of managing his workload. Lungi Ngidi, in the meanwhile, is unavailable for this game after featuring in the ODI Series between South Africa and Pakistan.

That should mean a place for either Imran Tahir or Dwayne Bravo depending on how Chennai Super Kings see the wicket in Mumbai. We’ll have to wait and see where Moeen Ali bats but he might be given a chance in the opening slot.

Likely XI: Gaikwad, Ali, Du Plessis, Raina, Rayudu, Dhoni, Curran, Jadeja, Chahar, Thakur, Tahir.

Delhi Team News

The injury to Shreyas Iyer has really put a spanner in the world for Delhi Capitals with the million-dollar question being who will bat at three, where Iyer generally comes in.

The answer is that they’ll probably try out different players in that position over the course of the season but it might be Steve Smith who first gets a chance to impress.

A bigger headache for stand-in skipper Rishabh Pant is how to overcome the absences of star pace duo Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje, who like Ngiidi, are returning from international duty. Spinner Axar Patel mises out after contracting Covid. It will also be interesting to see where they bat Marcus Stoinis. It would be an exciting prospect if he opened.

Likely XI: Stoinis, Dhawan, Smith, Pant, Vinod, Billings, Woakes, Ashwin, Mishra, Yadav, Ishant

Venue & conditions

Mumbai is generally known as a high-scoring ground where you can trust the surface to play the attacking, aggressive shots that have given Mumbai’s own batsmen so much joy over the years.

It’s generally seen as a ground best suited to chasing because you can score quickly at the death on a good surface with some slightly shorter boundaries. So that might be an in-play angle right there: back the side batting second.

CSK v DC Head-to-Head

It’s 15 wins to CSK over the years to DC’s eight. Hardly surprising given how consistently good CSK have been in the IPL whereas Delhi have so often struggled.  But Capitals’ fans can take some comfort from the fact their side beat Chennai twice last season, an excellent season for them and a really poor one for CSK.

Toss Winner

Backing Chennai to win the coin toss is the smart bet here. Looking into the CSK vs DC statistics, you can see that Chennai have won the toss almost 60% of the time. Also, worth knowing that they won both coin tosses against DC last year.

TEAMS TOSS WINS WIN PERCENT
Chennai Super Kings 14 wins 58.33%
Delhi Capitals 10 wins 41.67%

Chennai vs Delhi Match Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back CSK to win @ 2.15 with Casumo 

This is one of the tougher games to predict. On the one hand we’ve got DC still recovering from the loss of Iyer and now dealing with the absences of Rabada and Nortje, as well. Pant will also be making his debut as an IPL captain.

On the other hand we have CSK without Ngidi and complaining that many of their players haven’t played much recently.

But Dhoni knows the ropes like no other, they have a far stronger head-to-head record and at the considerably bigger price, CSK are the pick.

CSK vs DC Top Batsman Bet

Recommended Bet: Back Gaturaj Gaikwad to be CSK Top Batsman @ 4.25 with Betway 

We’re big fans of Gaturaj Gaikwad here at Bet India. In fact, he was one of our three top picks for Top Batsman for the whole IPL.

The CSK opener was brilliant at the back end of last season and has continued his good work since, recently scoring 102 in a List A match.

There’s some uncertainty regarding CSK’s batting order but he’s almost certain to open and should have a decent chance after what we saw last year.

Today’s Hot Bet  

Recommended Bet: Back Rishabh Pant to be Delhi Top Batsman @ 5.5 with 10CRIC

As we said already, there’s some uncertainty regarding who will bat where for DC.

But here’s what we do know. Pant has been India’s most in-form batsman across all formats since last year’s IPL and was in red-hot form in the ODI and T20 Series against England, boasting a sky-high strike rate.

As skipper he’ll want to make an impact rather than leaving it to others so we can expect him to bat at four. At odds of 5.0, that will do us nicely given all that he’s got so much going for him.

Chennai vs Delhi fun statistics

  • Assuming he plays, DC’s Steve Smith will be representing his fifth IPL team after spells at Rajasthan Royals, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rising Pune Super Giants and Pune Warriors.
  • Delhi’s Shikhar Dhawan was the IPL’s second-highest run scorer in last year’s IPL. That included scoring a century against CSK in one of last year’s two games between them.
  • Kagiso Rabada was the IPL’s top wicket-taker last season but won’t be playing here.
  • Suresh Raina will be making his IPL comeback after missing the whole of last season for CSK.
