Tata IPL 2023 DC vs CSK match has been scheduled for 20th May, Saturday. It is expected that the said match is going to be a very exciting one. Dhoni fans are eagerly waiting to see their idol smashing the ball on the pitch. On the other side, Delhi will try to take the match in their favour as it will be played in Delhi. The home ground will matter for Warner and the boys in this match.
However, this article will discuss the teams, the previews, stats, predicted players, key players, weather reports, and match prediction.
Tata IPL 2023 DC vs CSK Team preview:
Delhi Capitals was eliminated from the race to playoffs recently. They were inconsistent with the bat as David Warner and Prithvi Shaw consistently failed to deliver a solid start this season. Warner has yet again shown how brilliant he is as a captain. If he could back it up with the destructive power he is known for, it would have been a different picture today.
Warner will again back his batters as they come to Kotla for their last match of the season. Rilee Rossouw scored a brilliant 82 off 37 deliveries at number 3 against Punjab on a sharp batting pitch in Dharamsala.
Chennai Super Kings:
Chennai Super Kings will not be happy with their recent loss at home against KKR. The batters failed to put up a decent total on a Chepauk pitch that was quite different from other days. Deepak Chahar is in great form and is consistently delivering for CSK now. He might be the one bowler to watch out for against Warner and Shaw in the powerplay. A few wickets in the powerplay would make a comeback from Delhi almost impossible. In DC vs CSK match, Chennai should watch out for the destructive power of the in-form Rossouw and Phil Salt, who take the attack to the inexperienced CSK bowlers. Now, MS Dhoni needs a solid plan to counter the DC batting.
Tata IPL 2023 DC vs CSK Predicted playing 11:
David Warner (c), Prithvi Shaw, Philip Salt, Rilee Rossouw, Axar Patel, Aman Hakim Khan, Yash Dhull, Kuldeep Yadav, Anrich Nortje, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed
Chennai Super Kings:
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dube, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (c), Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Maheesh Theekshana
Tata IPL 2023 DC vs CSK Key players:
With Warner, Rossouw, and Phillip Salt in the top 4, Delhi Capitals’ batting looks quite powerful. These three can hit the long ball as often as they like, and if Shaw also continues his form in DC vs CSK match, it will be another high-scoring encounter in Delhi.
In the lower middle order, only Axar Patel is reliable. He can deliver quickfire innings at the death. Manish Pandey has not lived up to the mark and failed to build the innings in the middle overs. A lot depends on the overseas batters in this lineup, and they must carry DC on their shoulders. With the ball, the pacers are in good touch and look promising, while Axar Patel, with the spin, will be the key bowler for DC.
Chennai Super Kings:
Jadeja would be the key bowler in the middle overs against the likes of Rossouw. If the pitch isn’t as slow as the last game here, all the opposition needs is one of their power hitters to stay until the end. And then it would be Salt or Rossouw against Pathirana, which would not be an excellent matchup for CSK. Ajinkya Rahane will be a key player in the middle order, while CSK would also hope Jadeja and Moeen Ali to step up and make some significant contributions at the death.
