Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals IPL


Chennai Super Kings will look to make their home advantage count and move closer to the top of the table, but face a resurgent Delhi Capitals side. This IPL match #55 will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Wednesday, May 10 from 7:30pm IST.

Fresh from breaking their losing streak against Mumbai Indians at this venue, Chennai have one more home match this season and would like to make this count as they aim to seal a playoff place. Delhi Capitals won’t be an easy pushover having won four games across their last five. Yet, it is the Chennai’s opening partnership that looks lucrative to do the job. I am backing Chennai to post the highest opening partnership.

  • Chennai Super Kings have won 2 of their last 3 home matches (IPL)
  • Chennai Super Kings have won 4 of their last 6 completed matches (IPL)
  • Delhi Capitals have lost 6 of their 8 matches at this venue against Chennai Super Kings (IPL)
  • Chennai Super Kings have posted the highest opening partnership in 7 of their last 9 matches (IPL)
  • Delhi Capitals have conceded the highest opening partnership in 6 of their last 8 matches (IPL)

Head to Head


Chennai Super Kings have played Delhi Capitals 27 times with 17 wins for Chennai and 10 wins for Delhi. The record is 6-2 in Chennai’s favour at this venue.

This is the first match between these sides in this campaign with the reverse fixture set to be the last league match for both teams in the third week of this month.

Chennai Super Kings Form


Chennai are coming off a six-wicket win over Mumbai Indians at this venue that broke a losing jinx. They are 2nd in the points table with 13 points and three behind leaders Gujarat Titans.

Devon Conway (458) and Ruturaj Gaikwad (384) have been leading the batting charge for Chennai while Tushar Deshpande (19) and Ravindra Jadeja (15) have been impressive with the ball.

The hosts enjoy the conditions and love to keep their opponents quiet with their battery of spinners. That could once again be key for their chances in this match.

Chennai Super Kings Team News


There’s no news on Ben Stokes’ availability although Sisanda Magala has resumed training and bowling in the nets for Chennai Super Kings.

Delhi Capitals Form


Delhi Capitals are coming off an impressive seven-wicket win over Royal Challengers Bangalore making it four wins from their last five matches. They are still bottom of the table with eight points but could join a number of teams on ten points with a win.

Their resurgence is led by Philip Salt (151 from five matches) while David Warner (330) continues to lead their batting charts. Bowling though, has lacked a leader, as Mitchell Marsh (nine) remains their surprise leader.

Although they were able to pick up wins, Delhi still seem to lack a bit in the bowling front. Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel could be crucial on a turning Chepauk pitch.

Delhi Capitals Team News


Mustafizur Rahman has left for Bangladesh’s ODI series against Ireland. Anrich Nortje was unavailable for the last match due to a personal emergency having flown back to South Africa. It is not yet clear if he’s available for this trip.

Verdict

Chennai Super Kings love strangling their opponents at this venue and Delhi Capitals will have a tough task on their hands. Although the visitors are on an impressive run of form, it could be the hosts who start as heavy favourites. Our pick is in the opening partnership market, however. I am backing Chennai Super Kings to post the highest opening partnership of the match.
