Delhi Capitals -125 / Chennai Super Kings +100
In the Indian Premier League, the Delhi Capitals will play against the Chennai Super Kings for a spot in the final.
Chennai Super Kings lost their qualifier match as they were beaten by the Mumbai Indians. It was a poor batting display by CSK as they only scored 131 runs in their 20 overs. The likes of Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson and Suresh Raina all failed to score runs and the top 3 used up too many balls which left the team in trouble. The bowling was decent by CSK as Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh and Imran Tahir all took early wickets to give the team a chance. CSK have struggled with their batting all season and is an area they must improve if they wish to compete in this match.
On the other side of the coin, the Delhi Capitals were very impressive in their previous match as they defeated the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Ishant Sharma and Keemo Paul were exceptional with the ball as the Capitals only conceded 162 runs in their bowling innings. As far as the batting was concerned, it was a shaky effort although Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant were both very good.
The conditions for this match should be good for batting as was evident in the previous match. The match between DC and SH was played on this ground.
This is going to be a big match for both teams as the winner gets a spot in the final of the IPL. Both DC and CSK have been very good all season and both teams have the players to win this match. That being said, I am going to pick the Delhi Capitals to win this match. DC have been winning in recent games while CSK have slipped in form recently. Momentum is massive in T20 cricket and Delhi have the momentum on their side. Having just beaten Sunrisers Hyderabad, I see the Delhi Capitals winning again and making the final of the 2019 IPL.
