Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals Tips


The Delhi Capitals have a squad littered with international quality and should be able to push for the title again this season. I’m backing them to get the tournament underway with a victory against the Super Kings.

  • Chennai Super Kings’ Faf du Plessis was the top team run scorer in the 2020 Indian Premier League.
  • Delhi Capitals’ Rishabh Pant scored 77 & 78 runs in his last 2 limited overs matches.
  • Delhi Capitals have won their last 2 matches against the Chennai Super Kings.
  • Delhi Capitals made the final of the 2020 Indian Premier League.

Head to Head


The Chennai Super Kings have won three of their last five matches against the Delhi Capitals. The Capitals however did the double on the Super Kings last season, winning by 44 runs and five wickets respectively.

Chennai Super Kings Form


The Chennai Super Kings will be looking for an improved season in 2021 after finishing 2020 second from bottom. They won six of their 14 matches and missed out on the playoffs by two points.

The batsmen for the Super Kings really struggled with no one finishing in the top 10 of the IPL. Faf du Plessis was the sides’ top run scorer with 449 urns at an average over 40.81.

The Mahendra Singh Dhoni led side have always been among the favourites but could struggle again this season. They have won the tournament on three occasions, the last being in 2018. 

Chennai Super Kings Team News


The Super Kings have a very experienced squad with a number of young Indian talents. They however don’t possess the balance that some other sides do.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni will once again lead the side but it is difficult to see what their best side is. Faf du Plessis was good last season but has not played international cricket at all over the last couple of months.

Sam Curran is one of the world’s leading allrounders so his performances will be key. Dhoni will also hope that Ravindra Jadeja’s injury worries are behind him.

Delhi Capitals Form


The Delhi Capitals will want to build on their strong performance in the 2020 Indian Premier League where they lost the final to the Mumbai Indians. It was the first time ever that the Capitals had made the final.

Opening batsman, Shikhar Dhawan was the top Capitals batsmen last season and finished as the second top scorer in the tournament. He scored 618 runs at an average of 44.14 which included two centuries and four half-centuries.

Shreyas Iyer was not far behind but he has been ruled out for this season. New captain, Rishabh Pant will however be looking to continue his magnificent form. The keeper/batsman has enjoyed a superb international run in all formats, he will just need to translate that form into the IPL.

Delhi Capitals Team News


The Delhi Capitals have a magnificent squad from which to pick. They have added former Australian captain, Steven Smith to their ranks which will bolster the middle order batting.

On the bowling front, Kagiso Rabada will spearhead the attack after taking the most wickets (30) in the 2020 IPL. He will be supported by fellow South Africa, Anrich Nortje and Indian stalwart, Ishant Sharma.

The biggest challenge will be which international players to the Capitals go for in their starting side. Rabada will be the first choice while Tom Curran should also make it into the side as the allrounder. 

That leaves two spots for Steven Smith, Marcus Stoinis, Chris Woakes, Anrich Nortje, Sam Billings, and Shimron Heymyer.

Verdict

The Delhi Capitals squad is superior to that of the Chennai Super Kings in every facet. After ending last season as the losing finalists, I am backing the Capitals to win this match. Rishabh Pant is tipped to top score after showing magnificent form for India recently.

Faf du Plessis can be backed to be the Super Kings best batsman. He topped the Super Kings run scoring charts in 2020.
