Teams Preview

Delhi Capitals

DC is putting an all-round performance game by game. They are playing to their strength and executing their plans with no half measures. With the absence of Rishabh Pant, the combinations are looking a bit out of place but they still have managed to win the games.

Shaw scored his second golden duck this year. Probably bowlers have spotted his weakness and exploiting it constantly. Opener Shikhar Dhawan scored consecutive fifties in the last two matches. He scored 57 runs off 33 balls. Shreyas Iyer showed his class again with a fifty against his name. Rishabh Pant missed out again due to injury, Alex Carey getting a chance scored 14(13) whereas Marcus Stoinis looked scratchy in his 18 runs off 19 balls.

The spin bowlers are giving nothing away and bowling the perfect lengths. R Ashwin picked a wicket conceding only 17 runs in 4 overs. Axar Patel got the crucial wicket of Sanju Samson. Anrich Nortje is giving a nightmare to the batsmen along with his partner Kagiso Rabada. Nortje was clicking above 155kmph and got 2 wickets in 4 overs. Tushar Deshpande brought in for Harshal Patel picked 2 wickets against RR.

Shreyas Iyer is the leading run-scorer with 298 runs in 8 matches at an average of 42.57. Rabada is still wearing the purple cap for his 18 wickets in just 8 matches.

Venue Details

Bowlers have found a way to restrict the total below 200 at Sharjah. The venue is still a favorite for the batsmen because of its small-sized boundaries. Delhi Capitals have won both their matches at Sharjah owing to the power hitter they hold on their side.

Toss Prediction

The wicket is offering a bit for the spinners now and the bowlers have bowled well in the last couple of matches. Teams do bat first after winning the toss on this pitch to build a scoreboard pressure on the opponent. Both the teams would choose to bat first after winning the toss.

Winning Prediction

Delhi has been dominating every team they are playing against. But, CSK after their win against SRH look confident. CSK have got a good record against DC in the past and as the pitch of Sharjah is behaving CSK bowlers will be able to put more pressure than the DC bowlers. CSK have an experienced batting order and can keep their cool on a slow wicket.

We predict CSK to register a victory against DC.
