Chennai Super Kings
In the last two games, CSK openers Ruturaj Gaikwad (99 and 28 runs) and Devon Conway (85 and 56 runs) have been outstanding with the bat. Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, and Robin Uthappa have all scored runs, but their performances have been uneven. Moeen Ali and Ravi Jadeja are both off of a form and will be looking to get back on track in this encounter. Ravi Jadeja, Maheesh Theekshana, and Moeen Ali, CSK’s spin three, bowled brilliantly last night, combining for 12-0-75-5. Dwaine Pretorius will bowl in the death overs, Simranjeet Singh and Mukesh Chawdaury. Dwayne Bravo’s contributions to the bowling department are much missed.
Top players to bet on- Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Maheesh Theekshana.
In their last encounter, the Delhi Capitals scored 207/3 in 20 overs, with David Warner (92 runs) and Rovman Powell (67 runs) sharing an undefeated 122-run partnership. With all-rounders Axar, Lalit Yadav, and Shardul Thakur in the bottom order, Rishabh Pant, Mitchell Marsh, and Prithvi Shaw will make a formidable batting combination. The return of Anrich Nortje and Mitchell Marsh, who both played vital roles in their victory last night, strengthens their bowling assault. Khaleel Ahmed and Shardul Thakur each took five wickets in the previous game. With 18 wickets, Kuldeep Yadav is their leading wicket-taker, and Axar and Lalit will provide spin support.
Top players to bet on – Kuldeep Yadav, David Warner, Rovman powell.

Dream 11 Prediction
With many all-rounders in the lower order and power hitters in the top and middle, DC’s batting order offers a lot of depth. They also have a well-established bowling unit with a wide range of speed and spin possibilities. CSK’s middle order has been shaky, and the team is now relying mainly on their openers. With MS Dhoni at the helm, they boast an intense spin assault, but they lack pace experience, with Adam Milne, Dwayne Bravo, and Deepak Chahar ruled out due to injuries. The Delhi Capitals are projected to win this match due to their superior batting and bowling lineups on paper.
