CSK vs DC Match Prediction: The Sportsrush presents before you the Match Prediction of IPL 2019 Qualifier 2 at Visakhapatnam.
An astounding Indian Premier League has just two encounters left to offer to us. While the quantity might be low, it’s the quality that is set to keep us on the hinges tonight. And when the Super Kings and Capitals square off against each other, we’re going to have yet another resounding humdinger served up our way in the league.
These are two sides who have persistently promoted a culture of excellence in the league with their meticulous displays and clinical performances. Outshining sides to make their way in the second qualifier, the summit clash against the Mumbai Indians is within touching sight for the side who can come up with yet another flawless and illustrious performance.
CSK vs DC – What numbers suggest?
Going solely by the head to head record between the two sides, Chennai sit firm as the side expected to come out with a win here. The two have met in 20 encounters till date with the CSK winning a massive 70% of them with 14 wins as opposed to a lowly 6 of the rejuvenated Delhi side.
Earlier this season, CSK had managed to defeat comfortably in both the encounters the two sides have traversed in.
CSK vs DC – Key battles
Imran Tahir vs Rishabh Pant
Rishabh Pant has started picking up form for Delhi at the right time, hitting a half-century in their final league match vs Rajasthan Royals before 49 against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Eliminator.
However, the one glaring weakness in Pant’s batting is his consistency and the ability to fully soak in the narrative of the game. He fails to play out as per the circumstances, lashing out at every ball irrespective of the course the match finds itself taking.
Imran Tahir will be real handful against him as well. At No. 4, Pant occupies a position in Delhi’s middle-order that is a crucial juncture for them. Get him out early and CSK have negated Delhi’s threat of upping the ante in the middle part of the innings.
Celebrations were in place after our win in the high-intensity Eliminator! 🎊

Ambati Rayudu vs Trent Boult
Trent Boult will relish the task of bowling to Ambati Rayudu, who delivered for his side in the first qualifier. Rayudu is known to have massive problems against the ball that comes in at a treacherous pace.
With Boult’s stupendous ability to get the ball to move both ways one of his biggest weapon, Rayadu will be persistently peppered. This is going to be an engrossing battle, one that could give massive confidence to whoever manages to win it.
CSK vs DC Match Prediction
Having lost to CSK both the times these sides met previously in the Indian Premier League, we just can’t see the Capitals putting a halt to that spree here. While it’s been a dream tournament for them, one where they’ve silenced all criticism directed at them emphatically, the Super Kings should pose to be one hurdle too many for them.
There is no denying to the fact that CSK’s experience of pulling through these situations will work in their work. Also what is a massive cause of concern for Delhi is their heavy reliability on the top-order.
With Chennai lined with exceptional exponents of the ball, Delhi will fail to establish themselves for a big total, something that should see CSK come out of this with a win.
