Chennai Super Kings are one of the biggest brands in franchise cricket while Delhi Capitals are on a steady rise, making this CSK vs DC prediction highly interesting. MS Dhoni’s CSK is the second most successful franchise in the Indian Premier League, having won four IPL titles and two CLT20 trophies. CSK are also the defending champions as they defeated KKR in the IPL 2021 final.

Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, have come close on a couple of occasions but are yet to win an IPL championship. DC had a very good auction cycle during 2018-21, where they made it into the playoffs thrice including one final appearance.

DC have qualified for playoffs in the last 3 consecutive seasons.

Cricket Betting

With the addition of two new teams, DC and CSK needed to reconstruct their squad for the IPL 2022. CSK retained four of their stars in MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Moeen Ali, and Ruturaj Gaikwad. They also brought back the likes of Dwayne Bravo, Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu and Deepak Chahar through the auction.

DC opted to retain Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Anrich Nortje, and Axar Patel ahead of the auction. They added some outstanding picks from the auction such as David Warner, Mitchell Marsh and Rovman Powell. On paper, it appears that both the teams have done a decent job in the auction as they managed to put together quality units. Here we will take a look at which side will have an advantage in the DC vs CSK prediction.

CSK vs DC Match Prediction

The rivalry between CSK and DC has been a bit one-sided in the league’s history. They’ve competed against each other on 26 occasions, where CSK came out victorious 16 times while DC won 10 matches.

The historical head to head record suggests CSK will be favourites in the CSK vs DC match prediction. However, we will look into some other details to see how true it holds.

As far as the IPL 2022 is concerned, CSK have trusted their tried and tested approach, building a very similar squad to that of 2021. They lost Faf du Plessis and Shardul Thakur but have found able replacements in Devon Conway and Rajvardhan Hangargekar.

CSK’s leading wicket taker in the IPL 2021; Shardul Thakur will play for DC in the new season.

Cricket Betting

DC have stacked up their batting order with Warner, Marsh and Powell. But while doing so, they’ve weakened their bowling attack.

Overall, both sides look good but the DC vs CSK match prediction will go in CSK’s favour by a slim margin.

Talking about the upcoming edition, CSK have built a side with good batting depth with players capable of batting with great intent.

The likes of Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu and Jadeja have done well for them. CSK’s bowling could be a worry but as we’ve often seen with Dhoni’s CSK, they might just do well.

Ruturaj Gaikwad slamed 7 fifties in the IPL 2021 as an opener.

Cricket Betting

DC have assembled a terrific batting unit with new additions of Warner, Marsh and Powell that complement the others very well.

Much like CSK, DC have a weak bowling unit comprising Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, and Axar Patel. Nortje will be key for DC and CSK vs DC Match prediction will be centred around his presence. Given how the DC vs CSK contests have panned out, it’s relatively easier to guess as to who will win the match prediction for today’s game.
