Match Preview: Who is the big dog?
This match is between the old champs and the new kid in the block, DC is sitting on top of the table after almost 7 years and has qualified for the group stage for the first time in that time period. They have won 6 out of their last 7 matches, losing once to MI, the rise of DC in the table has coincided with the return of Shikhar Dhawan’s form who has scored 4 50+ scores in his last 6 matches. CSK, on the other hand, is sitting second in the table. They have lost 3 of their last 4 matches, of course, they did not have their captain for the recent matches but what Dhoni’s absence showcased was the deficiencies in CSK’s batting performances. There is one batsman from CSK in top 25 an that is none other than MSD(who btw has only played 7 winnings), thank their bowling lineup to make up for those deficiencies, we all know how their bowlers have performed and honestly, at this point, we are tired of writing about them.
We Know Cricket’s Hot Take 🔥
Shreyas Iyer is a better batsman than Rishabh Pant, there, we said it and it is the truth. We do not have any doubt regarding Pant’s abilities with the bat but his maturity to handle a difficult situation is still very questionable. Pant is the type of batsman who can win you a match on his own every once in a while but is largely ineffective in most matches(both in IPL and at the international stage), Iyer is the type of batsman who can make a difference in any situation or any position. It is not surprising that in most of the matches DC has won, Iyer has been the anchor to knit the chase.

CSK vs DC 2019 Dream11 Team & Suggestions:
Wicket-keeper: Rishabh pant has been excellent against spin this season and has scored 152 off 108 balls this season.
Batsmen: Only three batsmen today, first is Dhawan, he is in excellent form and we back him to continue his form. We have opted for Colin Ingram, he is an excellent player of spin bowling and has scored 91 off 64 balls while only being dismissed once. Only pick from Chennai is Watson, my only wild card(wildcard because he has not done enough to warrant a place in our dream11 team).
All-rounders: No Morris, so only obvious pick from Axar Patel. Axar will be joined by none other than Jadeja Sir, he has accumulated most point amongst all-rounders playing this match
Bowlers: This will be a little obvious, Rabada and Chahar are undroppable at this point and so are Tahir and Harbhajan in every match they play. Our 5th choice is Lambichanne.
Captain & Vice Captain: Ingram, Dhawan and Tahir are the better options
CSK vs DC 2019 Dream11 Team Suggestion #1:
Pant (wk), Dhawan, Watson, Ingram, Axar Patel, Jadeja, Rabada, Tahir, Chahar, Harbhajan, and Lambichanne
Captain: Ingram VC: Watson
CSK vs DC 2019 Dream11 Team Suggestion #2:
Pant (wk), Dhawan, Watson, Faf du Plessis, Raina, Axar Patel, Jadeja, Santer, Rabada, Tahir, and Chahar
Captain: Pant VC: Dhawan
CSK vs DC 2019: Match Prediction
An MSD less CSK looks less threatening but their home record this season is just amazing. DC will go all in to maintain their spot
