The DC vs CSK head to head figures below includes the games when Delhi were called the Delhi Daredevils. However, whichever name they use, the figures do not look good for them, and if they do want to win a title with their new name, then it is teams like the Super Kings that they have to start beating regularly. The Super Kings are dominating the head to head with 15 wins from 21 games so far. The games played since the name change to the Capitals makes for even worse reading. The 2019 season was the first time these two met since the name change, and they played three times, twice in the regular season and one IPL playoff game. The Chennai Super Kings came out on top in all three of these meetings, a blow to the Capitals in their first season with the new name.
Games played: 23
Delhi Capitals wins: 8
Chennai Super Kings wins: 15
The dream for the Delhi Capitals will be to build on their name change and become competitive, and if they are to do that, then they need to become competitive and start winning more games against the likes of the Super Kings. If Delhi wants to make a splash with their new franchise name, then it goes without saying that they have to be better against the bigger teams, including Chennai, and that starts with turning around their head to head record against them.
Delhi will be hoping things turn around on the head to head numbers, while Chennai will be hoping to keep things ticking along the same.

Highlighting CSK’s dismal 2020 season, the Delhi Capitals won both matches. CSK vs DC game one was played in Dubai resulting in one of Chennai’s worst batting performances in a long time. Chasing a very modest 176, they limped to 131 off their 20 overs. Rabada (4/26) and Notje (2/21) were instrumental in limiting, at least on paper, a great batting lineup which included Watson, du Plessis and Jadhav. The second match for CSK was a better performance, albeit still losing. Scoring 22 off the last over and a Dhawan 101* in just 58 balls, DC scraped home with just one ball to spare.
Delhi Capitals vs Super Kings 2020 match results
In 2019 it was more gloom for Delhi as they played Chennai three times and lost every single meeting. This included a playoff which would have given them the chance to compete in an IPL final for the first time, but they were beaten in this. The DC vs CSK IPL 2019 5thIPL match was the first between these two since the name change for the Delhi Capitals, marking a new era for the team. While they were beaten in this game and were beaten in all three meetings against the Super Kings, Delhi will have learnt a lot from them. If you want to be the best in the IPL, it is teams like Chennai you have to get the better of, they set the benchmark, and now the Capitals know just how high it is for them to go after.
The first DC and CSK 2019 game was closer than most had anticipated, with the Super Kings eventually only won with two balls remaining. The game was low scoring, with the Delhi Capitals batting first and putting a modest 147 on the board. Shikhar Dhawan top-scored for them with 51 from 47 balls but even he struggled to get going and score freely in this tight game. Dwayne Bravo was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets on the day for just 33 runs from four overs. Leading the way for the Super Kings with the bat was Shane Watson, their hero on so many occasions. He scored 44 from 26 balls, enough to earn him the man of the match award and from both teams he was the only one to really swing his bat and score quickly. MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina both scored 30s to help Watson, and that all came together to give the Super Kings the win with two balls remaining.

In the second clash of 2019 DC vs CSK match up was largely remembered for the bowling performance of Imran Tahir. Tahir took four wickets in the game for just 12 runs as he tore through the Delhi Capitals batting line up. Ravindra Jadeja was just behind him, with three wickets for nine runs as the Super Kings bowled over the Delhi Capitals. Top scorer in the match was Suresh Raina, who scored 59 from 37 balls for the Super Kings but it was MS Dhoni who came in at the end to further increase the scoreboard that took home the man of the match award. He scored an unbeaten 44 from 22 balls to put this game out if reach of Delhi.

Best Batsman: MS Dhoni *44 (22) & Best Bowler Imran Tahir 4/12 (3.2)
In 2018 before the Capitals changed their name, they played the Super Kings twice, and both teams won one each. Watching through the CSK vs DC highlights from those games, the one that stands out is the game won by the Super Kings.
Putting 211/4 on the board from their 20 overs, Shane Watson top-scored for his team thanks to 78 from 40 balls, and MS Dhoni coming in late with a brilliant 51 not out from 22 balls to build the total as high as possible. The CSK vs DC 2018 games top scorer Rishabh Pant top-scored with 79 for the Daredevils wasn’t enough to get them home, and the Super Kings held on. The Delhi team did score a very respectable 198 themselves, but key runs at the end of the innings from Chennai left Delhi with too much to do.
