Chennai Super Kings v Delhi Capitals – Team News
Dominic Drakes – CSK have lost England all-rounder Sam Curran to injury. Perhaps they will bring his replacement, the West Indian fast bowler, straight into the XI.
Ruturaj Gaikwad – The Chennai opener has been in superb form in the IPL 2021 and has a century this season. This is a huge opportunity for him to shine again.
MS Dhoni – Chennai’s captain is a master tactician and superb as a wicketkeeper. These facets are as important as his role with the bat.
Shreyas Iyer – Delhi are still chasing a maiden IPL title. Their former captain could be instrumental with the bat in pushing them into a successive final.
Avesh Khan – The Delhi fast bowler has been prolific this IPL season, but needs to bounce back from an ordinary performance against RCB recently.
Chennai Super Kings v Delhi Capitals – Betting Tips and Predictions
Our experts have betting tips for this playoff. These predictions are filled with good advice about the best odds on offer.
Bet on du Plessis for Top CSK Batsman
Faf du Plessis has been rock solid at the top of the Chennai order this season, including since the IPL resumed in the UAE.
He has only scored under 30 three times in his last eight innings and struck 76 against the Punjab Kings in CSK’s last match.
Du Plessis is a good price at 3.4 with bet365 to be the top Chennai batsman in this match. Look at their other options in the same market, too, but we think this is the best bet.
Pick Patel as Top Delhi Bowler
Axar Patel is an under-rated cricketer and is a good position to star with the ball in Delhi’s biggest match of the IPL 2021 so far.
He is the leading wicket-taker among the team’s spinners this season, often doing better than fast bowlers Avesh Khan, Anrich Norje and Kagiso Rabada.
Patel could bring good value at 4.0 with 22Bet as Delhi’s top bowler in this match. He can weigh in with the bat, too, so be sure to check out his price in the player of the match markets as well.
Choose Chahar and Khan in an Accumulator
1xBet have been outstanding with their popular accumulator outcomesin the IPL throughout the group stage.
They’re doing the same for the playoffs, too. Have a look at their many options. Their accumulator involving Deepak Chahar and Avesh Khan is wildly attractive.
Chahar and Khan are priced at 15.0 with 1xBet to take at least three wickets each. This is very possible for two of the best seamers in the tournament.
