After a disastrous start that knocked them out of the playoffs, the Delhi Capitals have won four of their last five games. Their batsmen have failed to deliver consistently, resulting in losses. The Super Kings have had success at this venue against Delhi and will look to build on that. We anticipate a close game between the two teams in this game.

Match Details to Note
Match: Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals, 55th Match, Indian Premier League 2023
Date: May 10, 2023 (Wednesday)
Time: 7:30 PM IST
Venue: MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai
The Super Kings haven’t been consistent, and the opposition has taken advantage of their bowling weakness on numerous occasions. The team performed admirably in their most recent match, defeating the Mumbai Indians by six wickets. It will be a crucial game in terms of their playoff qualification. The Delhi Capitals have performed well in recent games, and CSK will need to be at their best to win here.
Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad have scored over 800 runs between them, and the opening pair will look to get off to a good start in this game. The middle order is well-balanced, and the team will rely on Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, and Shivam Dube to score runs. CSK bats deep, and they will be looking for runs from Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, and Mooen Ali, all of whom have scored this season.
This isn’t CSK’s best bowling attack in recent memory. The bowlers performed admirably in the previous match, and they can expect tight spells from Deepak Chahar and Tushar Deshpande with the new ball. Jadeja and Moeen Ali have plenty of experience, and they’ll need to keep Delhi’s batsmen in check. Matheesha Pathirana and Maheesh Theekshana will also need to cast powerful spells for the team.
MS Dhoni (c), Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ambati Rayudu, Subhranshu Senapati, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Dwaine Pretorius, Mitchell Santner, Ravindra Jadeja, Tushar Deshpande, Mukesh Chowdhary, Matheesha Pathirana, Simarjeet Singh, Deepak Chahar, Prashant Solanki, Maheesh Theekshana, Ajinkya Rahane, Ben Stokes, Shaik Rasheed, Nishant Sindhu, Sisanda Magala, Ajay Mandal, Bhagath Varma
Players to watch out for:
Only three players in this year’s tournament have hit more runs than New Zealand’s opener. He is a top performer on any surface against any opponent.
The all-rounder is especially effective at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, where his quick spin bowling is difficult to counter.
The right-arm pace bowler had another excellent performance on this pitch in the previous game, taking 2-26 from four overs.
Possible Playing XI:
MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Matheesha Pathirana, Tushar Deshpande, Maheesh Theekshana, Ambati Rayudu (Impact Player)
After losing five consecutive games to begin the tournament, David Warner’s team has won four of the last five. In the previous game, they defeated the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 7 wickets. Even though the team can no longer make the playoffs, they will try to capitalize on their current momentum. It will be difficult against Chennai, but the Capitals can play without being under pressure.
Phillip Salt has played well in recent games and will look to provide a solid start alongside skipper Warner. The side has suffered from a lack of consistency in the middle order, and they will need strong performances from Mitchell Marsh, Manish Pandey, and Rilee Rossouw. For the team to win, Axar Patel, Ripal Patel, and Aman Hakim Khan must perform well.
The bowling attack will need a strong showing from Khaleel Ahmed and Axar Patel with the new ball against a strong batting line-up. Mukesh Kumar will be needed in the middle overs to support Instant Sharma’s bowling. For the team to win, Kuldeep Yadav and Marsh must bowl well.
David Warner (c), Prithvi Shaw, Ripal Patel, Rovman Powell, Sarfaraz Khan, Yash Dhull, Mitchell Marsh, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Anrich Nortje, Chetan Sakariya, Kamlesh Nagarkoti, Khaleel Ahmed, Lungi Ngidi, Mustafizur Rahman, Aman Khan, Kuldeep Yadav, Praveen Dubey, Vicky Ostwal, Ishant Sharma, Phil Salt, Mukesh Kumar, Manish Pandey, Rilee Rossouw
Players to watch out for:
The skipper has not scored more than 22 runs in his last four innings, but he has hit 330 runs at the top of the order in IPL 2023.
Phil Salt, the keeper-batter, scored 87 runs off 45 balls against Royal Challengers Bangalore to set a new IPL record and win Player of the Match.
The Australian has scored 89 runs and taken six wickets in his last two IPL appearances and is regarded as one of the competition’s most consistent all-rounders.
