IPL 2022 – Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals Match 55 Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more
In their next match, the Chennai Super Kings will face the Delhi Capitals at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai. The return of MS Dhoni as CSK’s captain did not help their fortunes much, as they are out of contention for the playoffs following their loss in the previous game. They will, however, want to finish high in the points table, which will improve their confidence moving into the next edition.
The Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, delivered a superb effort against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in their previous game, winning despite the absence of key players such as Prithvi Shaw and Axar Patel. The return of Anrich Nortje will also be welcomed because he has some serious speed in the armory and is likely to keep his spot. It would be intriguing to see if Shaw and Patel are fit for the game because they will be inserted immediately into the starting XI.
The match is scheduled to take place on the 8th of May, 2022 at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai.
Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals Match 55 – Pitch Report
The preceding game at the location was a low-scoring affair in which the Gujarat Titans were severely crushed by the Punjab Kings. It may not be the case this time, with the surface improving over time and the skipper who wins the toss likely to bowl first again.
Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals Match 55 – Probable XI
Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals Match 55 – Players to Watch
The dashing opening batter has been in the prime form of late and has successfully compensated for the lackluster form of his partner, Prithvi Shaw. In the previous match against his previous team, the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Warner was in full flow and scored a brilliant 92 runs from 58 deliveries. In the tournament, he has amassed 356 runs from 8 matches and we expect to see him continue this form against the Chennai Super Kings as well.
The spin bowler is just four wickets away from equalling his friend Yuzvendra Chahal in the purple cap race and the way he is bowling and fielding, we fully expect him to cause some serious problems for the Chennai batters. He has scalped 18 wickets from 10 games and will be looking to grab a bunch more and get closer to Chahal in the purple cap race.
Devon Conway has scored two runs in the last two games for the Chennai Super Kings, and he is undoubtedly a valuable addition to the CSK squad in the coming years. The New Zealand hitter can also keep wickets and has already scored 144 runs in three games this tournament. He is one of the top players in the league right now and will be trying to keep up his strong play.
Maheesh Theekshana has been a revelation for the Chennai Super Kings this season, consistently finishing in the wickets column. The mystery spinner has 11 wickets in seven games this season and has been outstanding in all phases of the game. He is one of the skipper’s trump cards, and his overs will be critical to the CSK side’s preparations.
