Delhi Capitals v Chennai Super Kings – Match Preview

Delhi and Chennai met earlier in the IPL 2020. The Capitals were comfortable winners after key contributions from Kagiso Rabada and Prithvi Shaw.

Prior to that, the Super Kings had won all of their last three completed head-to-head meetings against the Delhi franchise.

Where: Sharjah Cricket Stadium

When: Saturday, 17 October 2020

Start time: 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: The pitch in Sharjah doesn’t seem to be quite the belter it was at the start of the tournament. It has slowed down after overuse and average first-innings scores have changed from 200-plus to around 170. The small boundaries are still a big drawcard, though.

Weather conditions: The forecast suggests temperatures in the mid-30 degrees celsius and no rain. That has been the norm for the UAE this time of the year. As late afternoon turns into evening, dew will come into play and will be difficult for the team bowling second to manage.

Delhi Capitals v Chennai Super Kings – Team News

Delhi continue to navigate a string of injuries. Ishant Sharma is out for the rest of the tournament and Rishabh Pant won’t play this match.

Pant’s absence means opportunity for Alex Carey to impress behind the stumps and with the bat. Carey’s inclusion, though, means a different overseas player has to sit out – possibly Shimron Hetmyer.

The Super Kings got leg-spinners Piyush Chawla and Karn Sharma into the same XI for their recent victory over the Sunrisers. The change worked well and it’ll be interesting to see if they do it again.

Their decision to open the batting with Sam Curran also came off. There is plenty of onus on the Chennai opening batsmen when the middle-order is not firing.

Delhi Capitals v Chennai Super Kings – Betting Tips and Prediction

If you want IPL betting tips accurate and based on current form and generous odds, our experts have them right here.

Bet on Bowled to Be the First Method of Dismissal

We’ve seen it happen time and time again this season and reckon bowled as the first method of dismissal for the match is due again.

It’s an early bet with an early outcome, leaving you the rest of the match to explore. 22Bet have this priced at 4.74. With the pitch a bit slower and the batsmen struggling to force the pace, this looks a good bet.

Go for Delhi to Have the Highest Opening Partnership

If not KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal of Punjab, Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan have to be the most in-form opening partnership this IPL.

For that reason, and with Chennai experimenting with different combinations at the top of their order, 1xBet’s price of 1.85 for Delhi to have the highest opening partnership is a solid pick.

Choose a Century to Be Scored

The IPL 2020 has already seen a couple of centuries. Even with the conditions a bit more sluggish, the boundaries are still the smallest on show in the UAE.

There is plenty of opportunity for another batsman to ton up, especially with big-hitters like Faf du Plessis, MS Dhoni and others on display. 22Bet have a century to be struck priced at 7.0.
