CSK Vs DD Match Prediction & Analysis: Who Will Win today’s match?

The 30th match in Vivo IPL 2018 is to be played between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Daredevils, and it is a question of survival for the latter.  It is another do or die battle for Delhi, and fans can be assured of a great match being played Maharashtra Cricket Association, Pune. Let us get underway with the team news, match preview, playing XI, and pre-match analysis and prediction.

CSK(Chennai Super Kings)

Chennai Super Kings lost to bottom-placed Mumbai Indians in an unusual match where MI looked to have won it with 5 overs to spare, but a jittery batting display took them to the last over where Rohit Sharma made sure they did not collapse yet again. CSK will be mighty pleased with their bowling display as they almost defended 170 on a track that had nothing for the spinners, and the ball was coming on nicely.



Dhoni would be a tad concerned about the finishing of CSK’s innings and felt they were 15-20 runs short from the position they were in. Ambati Rayudu is knocking on the doors of Indian selectors yet again, and he is the owner of the orange cap and has been a revelation in IPL 2018. Watto hasn’t been in great touch following his hundred, but he can add up extra 2-3 overs, and as we saw Chahar leaving the field injured it was Watto who got hold of the proceedings. Raina is back amongst the runs, and Dhoni is looking better and better. Sam Billings is another impressive player, but he hasn’t really adapted to his role of being a finisher.


CSK will be pleased with Harbhajan Singh’s bowling, and it looks like the veteran off-spinner has a lot to offer in IPL 2018. Imran Tahir was impressive, but his fielding is a concern. With Chahar out for at least a couple of matches, KM Asif of Kerala might get a look in. CSK can also look to bolster their bowling charts by drafting in Mark Wood or David Wiley in place of Watson. However, that would seem unlikely. The MCA pitch hasn’t been productive for spinners, and Dhoni may take a risk and bench Tahir to yield the services of one of the two Englishmen.

A lot would depend on Rayudu and Raina, and for me, they would be the players to look out for. Dwayne Bravo with the ball and bat at the death is an asset, and he would be another key player.

Predicted Playing XI

Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Sam Billings, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir/ Mark Wood, KM Asif/Kanishk Seth, Shardul Thakur

DD (Delhi Daredevils)

DD may have pulled back themselves from the jaws of elimination as of now, but a loss to CSK would mean their IPL 2018 campaign done and dusted. With Gambhir stepping down as captain and getting benched many thought, Shreyas Iyer, to crumble down under pressure, but he has shone through it with a fabulous knock of 93, and then led his troop with vigor. Bringing Colin Munro in was a fantastic decision, and Prithvi Shaw showed the World why he is known as Sachin’s prodigy, and the lad from Mumbai looked ominous before getting out on 62. DD has lacked the firepower in the batting department, and it looks like they may have got the combination right this time.



It was great to see a veteran of IPL Amit Mishra getting chances, and he showed how easily he can turn the game on its head. Iyer got his bowling changes right, and the pace duo of Boult and Plunkett have been excellent. Avesh Khan was splendid again barring the foul mouthing incident against Russell. However, the inclusion of Vijay Shankar continues to baffle, and it is about time Gurkeerat Singh Mann gets a look in. Maxwell and Pant have gone quiet, but the two explosive batsmen can light up Vivo IPL 2018 when the day is right.

Shreyas Iyer would be the key player with the bat and his captaincy as he would be up against one of the best skippers ever. Trent Boult would look to nullify the threat of Rayudu and Watson. Plunkett may act as a trump card, and so does Amit Mishra.

Predicted Playing XI

Colin Munro, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Glenn Maxwell, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Liam Plunkett, Amit Mishra, Rahul Tewatia, Trent Boult, Avesh Khan

Today’s Match Prediction: CSK Vs DD

The money would be on DD for this and the sole reason be the hunger they have shown in the last match. However, if CSK manages to win the toss and elect to bat second, it would tilt in the favor of home side. The 30th match in Vivo IPL 2018 has a lot to offer.
