Image result for csk vs dc

It’s the second qualifier of VIVO IPL 2019. While CSK lost their first playoff to MI, Delhi won their eliminator against SRH. Now, both of them will face off against each other at the ACA VDCA stadium. While DC won their maiden playoff, CSK suffered a bad collapse against Mumbai, setting up a tense second playoff. So, join us for the latest team news, starting XIs, key players, and of course our prediction.

Chennai Super Kings

Chennai with three IPL wins are tied with MI for the most trophies. But the giants of Chennai were humbled in the first qualifier against MI. Chennai boast of a superb batting line up but so far the batsmen have failed to click as a unit. Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis have failed to provide meaningful starts barring a few individual knocks. Suresh Raina has shown some glimpses of big shots but has failed to pile on runs. The brilliance of MS Dhoni has kept CSK going. Despite his age, Dhoni has the best CSK batsman this season. Now, Chennai have the experience of playing in the qualifiers and they have to make that count. Raina, Rayudu and Jadhav will need to contribute in the middle. Every player has to step up and avoid a repetition of the first qualifier.

When defending a low scoring total, it’s the job of the bowling department to switch to a higher gear. CSK failed to do that against MI. Chennai do have an experienced bowling unit of Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir and Dwayne Bravo. Tahir, in particular has been impressive and is the highest wicket taker for Chennai. Deepak Chahar and Bravo will need to shut down the DC batsmen. This is the last chance for CSK to qualify.

Dhoni and Rayudu will be key in batting. Harbhajan and Tahir will be vital with the ball.

Predicted XI

Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, Murli Vijay.

Delhi Capitals

Delhi is on an extraordinary run. They have been the dark horses of the tournament. After securing their second playoff berth, they beat out SRH in the eliminator to continue on their hopes of getting their maiden trophy. Delhi will have to address a major issue before taking on the more experienced CSK. While DC has performed well as a team, their batting collapses in pressure situations have been noteworthy. Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan provided good starts for the Capitals this season. Their stand out duo has been Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer. The young batsmen have been in terrific form this season. But Delhi will have to habituate themselves to pressure conditions. CSK are more experienced and know how to break down the opponent. Delhi will have to be careful.

Delhi bowlers have a tough job on their hands against a destructive CSK line up. Ishant Sharma and Trent Boult have to be at their best in this match. Keemo Paul bowled brilliantly against SRH and will look to replicate his theatrics. Amit Mishra forms a strong partnership with Axar Patel in the middle overs.

Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer are the key batsmen. Ishant Sharma and Amit Mishra are vital bowlers.

Predicted XI

Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Colin Ingram, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel, Keemo Paul, Sherfane Rutherford, Trent Boult, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma.
