DC vs CSK Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2020

Delhi Capitals will bid to maintain their pace at the top of the 2020 Indian Premier League table when they take on Chennai Super Kings. The match will take place at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on October 17 and the live action starts at 19:30 local time.

Delhi won comfortably when these sides last met, part of their six wins in eight matches so far. The most recent of those came against Rajasthan Royals last time out, as Shikhar Dhawan hit 57 in a total of 161/7 as they won by 13 runs. That result lifted the Capitals back to the top of the IPL 2020 table.

Chennai Super Kings have been unable to capture their normal form so far, but a 20-run win against Sunrisers Hyderabad last time out got them back on track at least. Shane Watson top-scored with 42 but it was some mean bowling from Sam Curran and Dwayne Bravo’s wickets that earned the Super Kings a key win.

Delhi Capitals Team News & Playing 11

DC Team News

With Rishabh Pant out injured, Alex Carey continued behind the stumps last time out and Ajinkya Rahane was at number three. The latter’s sluggish innings could put his place in jeopardy, however.

DC Key Players

  • Shikhar Dhawan: Hit his second consecutive half-century last time out, following up his 69* against Mumbai with 57 against Rajasthan Royals.
  • Kagiso Rabada: Tidy figures of 1-28 last time out moved the South African paceman to 18 wickets for the season so far.
  • Shreyas Iyer: Moved to 298 runs so far in this year’s tournament when he hit 53 last time out – the second time he has passed 50 in this tournament.

DC Team Form

Delhi got back to winning ways last time out, as they bounced back from a five-wicket defeat to Mumbai Indians by beating Rajasthan Royals. Shikhar Dhawan hit a half-century for the second consecutive match and Shreyas Iyer posted 53 in a total of 161/7, before Rajasthan Royals were restricted to 148/8 in reply.

Chennai Super Kings Team News & Playing 11

CSK Team News

Sam Curran has been promoted up the batting order to inject some pace and Dwayne Bravo has returned to the team to make a wicket-taking impact. A successful experiment means they could be unchanged this time out.

CSK Key Players

  • Faf du Plessis: His runs have dried up a little after an excellent start to the tournament, but he hit 43 when these teams last met and has scored three half-centuries too.
  • Shane Watson: The evergreen Australian opener hit 42 last time out to move to 189 runs in his last four innings.
  • Sam Curran: Hit 31 at the top of the order last time out and took his fourth wicket in three matches too. He has nine wickets in this year’s tournament.

CSK Team Form

Chennai Super Kings earned just their third win of the tournament last time out as they look to revive their season. After back-to-back defeats, a few changes to the line-up and batting order saw them hit 167/6 last time out. Some economical bowling in reply limited Sunrisers to 147/8.

Chennai Super Kings have won just twice so far and only once since defeating Mumbai Indians in the opening game. Faf du Plessis (87*) and Shane Watson (83*) shared an unbroken opening partnership in the most recent win, against Kings XI Punjab, to guide the Super Kings to a ten-wicket win but they could not back up a good bowling performance against Kolkata Knight Riders last time out as they lost by ten runs.
