The Chennai Super Kings finally lost their first match at home in their previous match against the Mumbai Indians. They now play their last regular season home match against the Delhi Capitals. This is going to be a clash between the top two teams of IPL 2019. The Delhi Capitals have actually displaced the Chennai Super Kings from the top of the table thanks to a better net run-rate.
Both teams have won eight out of their twelve matches this season and have been very impressive. A win in this match would all but confirm a top-2 finish once the group stage has ended, thus providing an extra opportunity to try and qualify for the IPL 2019 final.
Chennai Super Kings have had a four-day break and that would have allowed some of their key players to recover from illnesses.
CSK vs DC IPL 2019 is going to be played at the MS Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai.
What are the Chennai Super Kings without MS Dhoni? That is a question that the franchise will have to answer very soon but for the time being it appears they are not very good. Dhoni has missed two matches this year and the team has looked lost without its inspirational leader in both of those matches.
A four-day break is hopefully enough for MS Dhoni to recover although we are not sure he is going to take any chances with the ICC World Cup 2019 just around the corner as well.
MS Dhoni’s captaincy has helped cover up a few faults of the Chennai Super Kings. Their batting has been very ordinary this year and the top-order has been unable to score runs consistently. Players like Shane Watson, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayadu, and Kedar Jadhav have barely played one memorable inning each.
Dhoni himself is the highest run-getter for Chennai this year and has been important in helping his team get to competitive scores.
Chennai Super Kings have been very successful playing at home because their team is perfectly suited to those conditions. The first qualifier is also being held at Chennai and we are certain the Super Kings would love to finish in the top-2 to gain that advantage as well.
The bowling unit of Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Dwayne Bravo, and Mitchell Santner is very effective on the slow Chennai pitch. This set of bowlers can dry up the runs and allow Dhoni to control the flow of the match.
Delhi has struggled against spin this year but has shown some improvements in the recent matches. The Chennai Super Kings bowling attack is not going to be able to just turn up and have its way.

The Delhi Capitals have had a very successful IPL 2019. The side has managed to qualify for the playoffs after 6 years and has a real chance of finishing in the top-2 as well. The hallmark of this Delhi team has been its ability to learn and adapt as the tournament has gone on.
Playing against Chennai in Chennai is never easy and Delhi will need its best players to turn up. We are looking at a solid contribution from Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer in this match. These two have been in excellent form and are the two highest scorers for Delhi.
Prithvi Shaw and Rishab Pant have not been comfortable on surfaces that have aided spin. They may find it difficult again in Chennai. The middle order for Delhi has been a weak point in past matches, however, a few batsmen have started making valuable contributions here as well.
Colin Ingram, Sherfaine Rutherford, and Axar Patel have helped Delhi score useful runs in the past few matches. If this continues then the Delhi batting starts looking a lot more formidable than it usually does.
The Delhi bowling is very good. Kagiso Rabada, Ishant Sharma, Axar Patel, Sandeep Lamichhane, Amit Mishra, and Sherfane Rutherford form an all-international bowling attack. No one has taken more wickets than Rabada this season and the Delhi policy of keeping him for the end-overs is paying off well.
Amit Mishra, Axar Patel, and Sandeep Lamichhane are going to be crucial in this match. This trio of spinners may not have the same reputation that Chennai’s trio does but they can be pretty effective on their day.
The team whose spinners have a better game could well be the one that emerges the winner.
Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, RR Pant, Colin Ingram, Sherfane Rutherford, Axar Patel, Jagadeesha Suchith, Chris Morris, Amit Mishra, TA Boult.
The team winning the toss is likely to want to bat first. The pitch starts to become much more difficult for batting in the second inning. Winning the toss here is going to be a big advantage.

CSK vs DC IPL 2019 is going to be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. The weather forecast for Chennai on match day is good and we should have uninterrupted cricket being played. The humidity is generally high in Chennai and that is to be expected.
The pitches offered up at Chennai have been dry and very favorable for the spinners. Batting first has been an advantage here, as Mumbai showed, although the dew can make bowling difficult for the spinners in the second inning.
A score of around 160 should be considered very good at this venue.
We have favored a spin-heavy Dream 11 team for matches played in Chennai and that is the same approach we are taking for Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals as well. Reports from the ground suggest that the pitch is going to be dry and take a lot of turn. We make final changes after the pitch report and toss. Updated teams are posted on twitter. You can follow us on @cricketbettings.
Wicketkeeper: Rishab Pant has been a better point scorer than MS Dhoni in IPL 2019, however. Rishab Pant tends to struggle in conditions where the spinners dominate. This is why we are picking MS Dhoni for this match who has been more consistent with his returns.
Batsmen: We have just picked three batsmen for this match. Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, and Faf du Plessis are all good against the spinners. They have been scoring runs consistently and should have a good chance of scoring some points. If there is any dew on the pitch then these batsmen stand a good chance of benefitting from that as well.
All-rounders: Axar Patel, Mitchell Santner, and Dwayne Bravo are the three all-rounders we have picked. All three of these players are primarily bowlers that can score a few useful runs down the order. Santner and Axar Patel will like the slow pace of the pitch while Bravo can pick uip wickets during the end overs.
Bowlers: Imran Tahir, Kagiso Rabada, Sandeep Lamichhane, and Amit Mishra are the bowlers we have picked for our Dream 11 side. There is only one fast bowler, Kagiso Rabda, while the rest are all spinners.
Captain and Vice Captain: We have decided to pick Shikhar Dhawan as captain and Faf du Plessis as vice-captain for this match. People that are a little more adventurous can take two spinners in their place as well.

We think that the Delhi Capitals have managed to get a nice balanced playing eleven together at the moment. Their batsmen are in form and the bowlers are doing their job too. However, slow and turning conditions is not to this team’s liking.
Chennai could be boosted by the return of MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja for this match. The home conditions also provide a massive advantage that could help Chennai win.
Bet on the Chennai Super Kings to win.
