CSK vs DC Preview | Team Analysis & Squad Details

Here’s a closer look at CSK and DC – team analysis, squad, head-to-head record, and prediction. 

Chennai Super Kings (CSK)

CSK will rely on Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad to set the tone in the powerplay. Conway has been involved in seven 50+ partnerships and is 42 runs away from 500 runs in IPL 2023. Ajinkya Rahane and Shivam Dube have been reliable, while Ravindra Jadeja, Moeen Ali, and MS Dhoni have made vital contributions. 

In Deepak Chahar, CSK has an experienced pacer who can guide uncapped Tushar Desphande and young Matheesha Pathirana. The trio was impressive in the victory over MI last week. However, it will be spinners – Ravindra Jadeja and Maheesh Theekshana – who will likely play a crucial role on a sluggish Chepauk track.    

CSK Squad 

  • MS Dhoni (captain)
  • Devon Conway
  • Ruturaj Gaikwad
  • Ajinkya Rahane
  • Shivam Dube
  • Ben Stokes
  • Moeen Ali
  • Ambati Rayudu
  • Ravindra Jadeja
  • Maheesh Theekshana

Delhi Capitals (DC)

In a massive relief for DC fans, the franchise’s top-order fired on all cylinders against RCB last week. England’s Phil Salt made a terrific 87. On the other hand, Rilee Rossouw, Mitchell Marsh, and David Warner came good with the bat. If the batters keep piling up runs, the Delhi-based outfit has a good chance of making it to the top four. 

The onus will be on Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel on a track that suits slow bowlers. Kuldeep, who has eight wickets so far, hasn’t been prolific like last season. But the spin duo has been economical so far. The pace bowlers will be keen to make early inroads. Marsh’s presence is a big plus, as the all-rounder took two key wickets against RCB.
