DD Vs CSK Match Prediction, Analysis, Betting Tips, and Playing 11 [18 May, IPL 2018]

The Feroz Shah Kotla stadium will play host to 52nd match of IPL 2018 on 18th May. Delhi Daredevils playing from their home ground will be looking to upset a rampaging Chennai express. The Daredevils are understandably out of the competition after just having won three of their 12 matches. Chennai meanwhile is eyeing the top spot at the cost of a dismal DD. This match will be a good opportunity for CSK to tie up their loose ends. With playoffs being secured, the Super Kings can use this match to smoothen out their nuisances in any department.

Delhi Daredevils

The Delhi Daredevils are currently sitting at the bottom of the IPL points table with just 6 points. A poor start to the season turned into a full-blown disaster for DD. With Gambhir stepping out of the team, the Daredevils fell apart. Despite some impressive individual performances by Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, and Prithvi Shaw the rest of the team failed to impress. A team, that has the experience of Glenn Maxwell and Jason Roy failed miserably.

The only positive out of the woeful batting line-up has been Rishabh Pant. The youngster mostly has been the standalone player in a failing team. Pant registered the second fastest hundred in IPL and currently has racked up an impressive 582 runs. Needless to say that he will be the bane to CSK’s bowling come Friday. Coach Ricky Ponting will be looking to bring in some new faces as it was evident from the last match. Abhishek Sharma’s rapid fire of 46 in 19 deliveries will surely get him a place against CSK.

Bowling Line-up

The bowling department has been deplorable for DD in IPL 2018. Even manageable totals have been chased down when the bowlers were unable to restrict the opposition. Pacer Trent Boult and spinner Amit Mishra have failed to set up an example for the rest of the team. The last match also saw the debut of Sandeep Lamichhane who performed admirably. But against a batting heavy Chennai side, the inexperience of DD bowlers will prove very costly. DD has nothing to play for but pride. This is their second last match of the IPL 11 and they will look to spoil Chennai’s hopes of getting the pole position.

Key Players

There is frankly no one else other than Rishabh Pant to stand up against CSK. The youngster will be looking to add more runs to his tally in this match.

Predicted Playing XI

Prithvi Shaw, Jason Roy, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Harshal Patel, Amit Mishra, Sandeep Lamichhane, Junior Dala, Trent Boult.

Chennai Super Kings

The men in yellow are one of the few teams that have been consistent every IPL. Even after a two-year gap, they have come back in style. Boasting a formidable batting line up, the MS Dhoni-led CSK have already secured their playoffs berth. Their only viable contender in IPL 2018 has been SRH. Even then Chennai has managed to beat Sunrisers both times in the group stages. The opening pair of Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu has paid dividends for Chennai Super Kings. Rayudu is in unforgiving form as the batsman made short work of SRH’s bowling with an unbeaten 100. Shane Watson also has been enjoying himself with good quality batting. The rest of the batting line up consists of Suresh Raina, Dhoni, Dwayne Bravo and Jadeja. Against an inconsistent DD bowling, the batters will surely look to post a big total.

Bowling Line-up

The biggest worry for CSK this season is their below-par bowling. With the exception of Shardul Thakur who has led the CSK bowling with 11 scalps, the rest have to step up. The experienced bowlers like Dwayne Bravo, Harbhajan Singh, and Ravindra Jadeja will need to smooth out their creases in this match. The playoffs will have the best teams of the season and CSK will surely need to bring their best XI for the last stage.

Key Players

Rayudu, Watson, and Dhoni will provide the big runs against the DD bowling. The bowling unit will need to stop a dominating Rishabh Pant from scoring big.
