CSK Vs DC Dream11 Team: Delhi Capitals (DC) might have come into this tournament as favorites, but they have been completely dominated by Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL over the years. CSK and DC have gone head to head 21 times in the IPL so far and while CSK has won 15 of those games, DC has won only 6.
The match will take place at Dubai International Cricket Stadium and the first ball will be bowled at 07:30 PM IST. The temperature on the game-day will be more or less the same as it has been in the tournament so far. The maximum temperature can get as high as 39 degree Celsius.
Both the games played at Dubai International Cricket stadium this season have been won by the teams batting first, but it will be interesting to see if the team winning the toss opts to bat first or chase tonight because dew will be a massive factor as well.
RCB has won the only game they have played in the tournament so far and are at no. 3 in the points table with a net run rate of +0.500.
KXIP, on the other hand, lost their first game, but they lost it in the super over and the actual game was a tie. So, their net run rate didn’t suffer. While they are in the bottom half of the table, their NRR hasn’t gone negative yet.
CSK Vs DC Who Will Win Dream11 Prediction
DC, on paper, looks a much better side, but the experience and the canniness of CSK make them a dangerous proposition. Given the fact that the ground in Dubai is quite big and the spinners will be into play, CSK might end up beating DC yet again.
CSK playing 11 (expected): Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla
DC playing 11 (expected): Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shimron Hetmyer, Marcus Stoinis, Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Mohit Sharma
Faf du Plessis: Faf du Plessis is the highest run-scorer in the tournament at the moment as he has gone past the score of 50 in both the games he has played so far. Since he was not out in one of the games, his average right now is over 100. Based on current form, Faf du Plessis is the perfect choice as Dream11 captain.
Shikhar Dhawan: Shikhar Dhawan might have got run out without scoring too many runs in the first game, but his game is tailor-made for these conditions and he will be a very crucial batsman for Delhi, considering the fact that CSK will have a leg spinner and a left arm spinner who will be spinning the ball into Dhawan.
Sam Curran: Sam Curran is playing very impressive little cameos with the bat, but it’s his work with the ball which is helping CSK a great deal as he is bowling in different stages of the innings and making an impact both with new and old ball.
Axar Patel: Axar Patel provides the right kind of balance to Delhi Capitals at no. 7 as he is not only a big hitter of the ball in the latter phase of the innings, he is a very tricky bowler to put away on sluggish and slow surfaces of UAE.
