The Chennai Super Kings and the Delhi Capitals are on 18 points from twelve matches - they have both picked up nine wins and are separated only by their NRR. In the most likely scenario, the Chennai Super Kings and the Delhi Capitals will finish in the top two and will have two opportunities to make it to the IPL final. Of course, neither team has confirmed a top two finish, so there is still plenty to play for. Here we are going to give you our prediction for this match.

Delhi Capitals Team Preview

Their last match was a closely fought win against the Mumbai Indians and this would have given them plenty of confidence. This win was built off the back of great bowling performances from Avesh Khan and Axar Patel, while Shreyas Iyer was brilliant with the bat.

The Delhi Capitals made a good chance in their last match as they abandoned the Lalit Yadav experiment. This meant that Prithvi Shaw came back into the eleven and Steve Smith kept his spot in the top order, meaning that they have six genuine batsmen to give their batting lineup plenty of depth. The Dubai surface has been much better for batting than the one in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, so Shikhar Darwan could be the batsman to back in this game, especially against a team that he loves to play again.

Chennai Super Kings Team Preview

The Chennai Super Kings batted brilliantly in their last game versus the Rajasthan Royal, but still lost. Ruturaj Gaikwad carried on his golden form and is now the leading scorer in the competition with more than 500 runs under his belt. In fact, you could probably say that he has been covering up for some weaknesses that the Chennai Super Kings batting lineup has. The likes of Faf du Plessis has not been at his fluent best, Suresh Raina has been struggling, while Moeen Ali is yet to get a big score.

Where the Chennai Super Kings have been able to stay ahead of other teams is by using Ali and Ambati Rayadu to attack in the middle over and pick up some crucial wickets to slow the scoring down. In their bowling attack in the last match, the Chennai Super kings opted to play KM Asif and Sam Curran. However, in this next match, we think they will be replaced by Deepak Chahar and Dwayne Bravo. If these changes are made, then the Chennai Super Kings will have a much stronger bowling attack.

Toss Prediction

The captain that goes on to win the toss will more than like opt to field first. The last three matches that have been played at this venue at the time of writing were all won by the team that batted last.

Pitch and Conditions

The Dubai conditions are hot, but it is safe to say that it is the best batting surface out of the three. It is a slow wicket, but the batsmen still have a little something to work with while the ball is new and hard. We believe that this is a game where the team that wins will need to hit at least 160 runs.

Our Match Prediction

We think that the Delhi Capitals will go on to win this game. Why do we think this? Well, the main reason is that we feel that they have a better balanced team now they have added one more batsman to their eleven. Additionally, we feel that the Delhi Capital's bowling lineup is a little bit better, and if they can get Gaikwad out pretty early one, then it will be interesting to see how the Chennai Super Kings react.
