The game CSK vs DD is now Chennai vs the Delhi Capitals after the Delhi team changed their team name from the Daredevils to the Capitals for the 2019 season. These two have played each other a lot and will be hoping that continues, although the Capitals will be hoping their luck can change as they have never contested an IPL final, let alone win a title.
The Chennai Super Kings are established as one of the powerhouses of Indian cricket, and much is expected of them every season they compete in the IPL. They are a team full of stars and fans that arrive in attendance at their home; the M. A. Chidambaram Stadium is full of expectation; this is a team that has pressure on to win.
The recent form heavily favours CSK, winning 4 out 5 matches.Cricket Betting
The Delhi Capitals rebranded off the field from the Daredevils for the 2019 season, and those attached with this team will be hoping that is the start of something big. This is a team that has failed to get involved in the business end of the season, something they want to change moving forward. The Arun Jaitley Stadium is their home in New Delhi, and their aim is simple, to finally bring success there for their fans, something they are yet to taste as a franchise.
Our CSK vs DD match prediction is going to focus on the games from last season, where Chennai were able to win all three, including the playoff game when the pressure was on. This is the sign of a good team, but don’t rule out Delhi in 2020 as they will want revenge. Check our post on CSK vs DC prediction for more information about the next match.

When looking at the CSK vs DD highlights, many fans will think of the most recent game to take place between these two teams. It came last season, the first in which Delhi was called the Delhi Capitals, and it was a playoff game that could have seen them eventually reach the IPL final. This is a franchise looking to get to a final finally, and it would have been fantastic for them to do it on the back of a name change, giving them a fresh start and showing their fans that they are a serious IPL team who can compete with the best.
However, the power of Chennai was too much for them. Delhi stumbled up to 147 in the first innings, with Rishabh Pant being their top scorer with just 38 thanks to some great bowling from Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja and Deepak Chahar, who all took two wickets in the game. The Super Kings came out and scored 151 with six balls to spare to win the game and progress, with Faf du Plessis, one Chennai Super Kings best players, scoring 50 and taking home the man of the match award for the game.
Those thinking about the potential CSK vs DD score for the games this season would be wise to look back at what happened last season when these teams met. In each of the three meetings, the Chennai Super Kings came out on top, but they also had something else in common, which was that the Delhi Capitals did not get enough runs on the board.
The Capitals scored 147 in the two games that they were batting first and setting a total, and when it came to chasing they did even worse, scoring just 99 all out when chasing 179 that Chennai had scored in their innings.
This game is all about big hitting and taking control of games, and this is a skill that Delhi needs to improve on. These are likely to be low scoring games once again unless Delhi can find a way to get some big numbers on the board and trouble the Super Kings. They have shown glimpses elsewhere, but need to show improved batting on a more consistent basis if they are to compete for the IPL title and beat the top teams like Chennai.
The CSK vs DD 2018 clash was the last time that Chennai hosted Delhi under the name of the Daredevils. Delhi was unable to pick up a win in this clash, despite playing pretty well. They scored 198 chasing down the 211 that Chennai has scored in the first innings, two big scored but ultimately it was the Super Kings that came out on top.
Shane Watson and MS Dhoni led the way for Chennai, Watson got things off to a great start with 78 runs from 40 balls while Dhoni finished it off and pushed his team on with 51 not out from 22 balls. This was a very impressive score for Chennai and one that was always going to be tough to chase down for Delhi who has struggled to get big numbers on the board in the past.
Rishabh Pant tried to give Delhi hope in this one and scored 79 for his team, but that wasn’t enough, and they ended on 198, which is still a very good score, but not good enough to beat a team with the firepower that the Super Kings have.
