|🤔 What||CSK vs DC, Match 50, IPL 2019|
|📅 When||1st May, Wednesday|
Match Preview: Battle of Youth vs Experience
Let’s start with Delhi. Being Delhi fans all our lives, we are sure you can sense our excitement through this match analysis. Delhi has beaten all odds and their last victim was Sunrisers Hyderabad. In a close encounter, Delhi held their nerve and finally got that winning runs in the final over. Prthivi Shaw finally got some runs and his return to form is a blessing in disguise for Delhi fas who got used to seeing Delhi win without his guns-blazing innings.
Chennai, on the other hand, had an off day (in words of MSD). Their batting underperformed massively, as it has been the case for them throughout the tournament. Their bowlers, as usual, tried to get them back in the game but a meager score of 131 on the board proved to be a tad short. But we all know what CSK can do. We all know what Dhoni can do. Even though Delhi’s side looks much better on paper, the presence of MSD in the opposition is good enough to send shivers down their spines!
We Know Cricket’s Hot Take 🔥
It’s youth v experience. It’s Pant vs MSD. Delhi is the epitome of the exuberance of youth. The carelessness, the fearlessness. While CSK is the pinnacle of experience. They have seen it all. They have done it all. Can the youth have one over the experience in this age-old battle? Or will experience come out shining like it usually does? It’s going to be an epic encounter that’s for sure! As for our Hot Take, the average score in Vizag is 148. And spins plays a huge role at this ground with an economy rate of 6 as opposed to 9.6 for fast bowling. CSK’ spinners have taken 55 wickets this IPL, the most by a team in a single season. Our advice would be to bring back the champion spinner Lamichanne in place of Amit Mishra.

Chennai Super Kings
- The regular failure of Watson is a concern. He might be replaced by Sam Billings although we are not too sure.
- Jhadav is ruled out because of a shoulder injury and is replaced by Vijay

CSK vs DC 2019 Dream 11 Team & Suggestions:
Wicket-keeper: Rishabh pant has been excellent against spin this season and his role is vital in Delhi’s team. However, Dhoni arguably is still the best finisher. We are going with Pant as our first choice though.
Batsmen: OnOur first choice is Dhawan, he is in excellent form and we back him to continue his form. Faf has also been seen in good nick and should also be included. Raina has been in terrible form although he has shown signs of brilliance. Iyer has been the steady pillar of the Capitals and we always pick him in our squad and so should you.
All-rounders: Axar, along with Jadeja Sir can play an important role at this pitch and are our picks for the all-rounders department.
Bowlers: Tahir can be deadly and is a the first pick. Ishant has bowled brilliantly and has revived his dying T20 career in style. He should also be picked along with either D. Chahar or Harbhajan. The 4th bowler could be Amit Mishra or Lamichanne (whoever plays).
Captain & Vice Captain: Dhawan, Iyer, Pant, Faf, Dhoni- all make good choices.
CSK vs DC 2019 Dream 11 Team Suggestion #1:
Pant (wk), Dhawan, Faf, Vijay, Axar Patel, Jadeja, Tahir, Harbhajan, Ishant, Mishra.
Captain: Pant VC: Faf
CSK vs DC 2019 Dream 11 Team Suggestion #2:
Dhoni(wk), Dhawan, Faf du Plessis, Shaw, Raina, Axar Patel, Jadeja, Mishra, Boult, Tahir, and Chahar
Captain: Dhoni VC: Dhawan
