DC vs CSK Dream11 Prediction: Live Score & Today Match Prediction for DC vs CSK, 34th Match IPL 2020

DC VS CSK Dream11 Prediction: A cracker of a contest awaits us as Delhi Capitals will take on Chennai Super Kings on Saturday. Delhi Capitals are at the top of their game and are second in the points table with 6 wins in 8 games. Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, have also exhibited a stellar performance in the last game to make a comeback in the tournament. They will face a high-flying Delhi Capitals in the next game on Saturday.

Delhi Capitals:

The Delhi Capitals managed to win in their previous match against RR even though they did not play their best cricket. Their fantastic bowling attack bailed them out and helped them defend a score that was at least 15 runs too short.


There was, however, evidence that DC is paying very close attention to strategy and individual performances. Shikhar Dhawan seemed to have been given specific instructions to play freely and to not slow down after getting a start. That was something he was guilty of doing in the past.

The addition of Tushar Deshpande was a bit out of the blue but he delivered in the death, just like the bowling coach had said he would.

There are a few problems, though. Rishabh Pant could miss this next game against CSK once more, although, he is close to a return. If he does miss then Ajinkya Rahane and Alex Carey are going to get another chance to make an impression.

The loss of Pant and Hetmyer in the middle is a big one considering how fluently both of them were batting. Their absence also increases the pressure on Marcus Stoinis.

DC still has a very strong batting lineup, though, and we think they match up well against the CSK bowlers. The real strength of DC has been its bowling attack. Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada have been brilliant for them in every single match that they have played.

With those two, you already have eight overs in the powerplay and the death that are going to be very difficult to score off. Axar Patel has given away just two sixes in the entire tournament so far and we know that Ashwin is world-class as well.

Chennai Super Kings:

DC VS CSK Dream11 Prediction: CSK has a tough task on its hands but we expect it to give a much tougher fight to DC than it did in the previous match.

The CSK batsmen seem to have made a deliberate effort to try and bat more aggressively from the start. Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayadu, and perhaps Sam Curran at the top of the order could give CSK some decent starts.

MS Dhoni has also been trying to play more freely without worrying about getting out.

He is, however, not at his best, and to expect too much from him is dangerous. Ravindra Jadeja has been batting pretty well and is it is good to see him bat at 6 where he can make regular contributions.

CSK’s batting is not naturally suited to Sharjah, a high-scoring venue and we cannot help but think one out of Watson or de Plessis has to make a massive score to be able to challenge DC.

It will be interesting to see if CSK makes a change to its bowling attack for this match. Playing both Piyush Chawla and Karn Sharma, as they did in the previous one, could be a bit of a gamble. Maybe the fact that the Sharjah pitch has spun significantly in the second inning of the two previous matches could help CSK to keep the same combination.

The lack of a genuine fast bowler or top-quality wrist spinners makes CSK vulnerable against the strong DC side.
