DC VS CSK Match Preview:

Delhi Capitals' have been struck hard by the injuries of Rishab Pant and Shreyas Iyer. If Iyer gets unavailable for this match, the balance in the Delhi's batting line up will be hugely impacted. Shikhar Dhawan has been in good touch in the last few games, he will be a key player for the team. Ajinkya Rahane will be hoping to score big in this match after two back to back failures. 

DC's bowling line up has responded well while defending low scores this season. Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel have been terrific for the team during the middle overs. In-form pacer Anrich Nortje will be a key bowler. Harshal Patel might get a game if Shreyas Iyer is unavailable. 

Chennai Super Kings(CSK) gave All-rounder Sam Curran a chance to open the innings in their game which took off successfully. The batsmen still haven't been able to up the scoring rate however there seem to be some tactical changes made. Faf du Plessis will be a key batsman for the team in this match. 

CSK's bowlers have been their main strength this season. Shardul Thakur is in a good form with the ball and has taken wickets regularly. Dwayne Bravo hasn't been in the best of forms and might make way for Mitchell Santner in this game. 

It will be a match between two strong bowling line ups. There is a good chance Chennai Super Kings might take sweet revenge against Delhi Capitals in this match.
