Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals Betting Tips

Chennai Super Kings will face Delhi Capitals in the second match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 on Saturday.

The home team in this fixture will be coming in the competition eager to prove their doubters wrong.

Chennai had a horrid time in the 2020 edition of the IPL where for the first time, they did not manage to qualify for the playoffs and finished on the seventh position of the league table with just 12 points.

Therefore, the team management will be hoping for a much better show from the players this time around.

On the other hand, Delhi team will be eager to continue the momentum they had in the previous campaign where they finished as the runners up for the first time in the history of the competition.

Both teams have already competed 23 times in the history of the IPL where Chennai clearly have an edge with 14 wins and just nine defeats.

However, in the last campaign, Delhi came out on top on both occasions with 44 runs and five wickets margin.

Chennai Super Kings Form and Team news:

Chennai Super Kings will undoubtedly the most aged as well as the experienced squad in the IPL 2021.

The team have already suffered a massive blow just days before the start of the competition as Australia’s star pacer Josh Hazlewood withdraws from this year’s IPL in order to be ready for the future series with the national team.

The captaincy of veteran wicketkeeper-batsman MS Dhoni will also be under the scanner as he has not played any competitive form of cricket since the previous edition of the India’s cash-rich T20 league.

On the batting front, the team will be relying on the likes of captain Dhoni, former South Africa’s skipper Faf du Plessis and former India’s middle-order batsmen Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu to score bulk of the runs.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the spin trio of Ravindra Jadeja, Imran Tahir and Moeen Ali to produce timely breakthroughs.

Delhi Capitals Form and Team News:

Delhi Capitals are one of the youngest teams in the competition and they will be led by a very young captain Rishabh Pant.

The wicketkeeper-batsman replaced regular captain Shreyas Iyer who was ruled out after suffering a shoulder injury.

In his absence in the batting department, the team will be heavily relying on the likes of former Australia captain Steve Smith, experienced opener Shikhar Dhawan, captain Pant, in-form Prithvi Shaw and veteran Ajinkya Rahane to score bulk of the runs.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje along with the spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel to produce timely breakthroughs.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Since this will be the first match of the competition, it is extremely tricky to predict an outright winner.

However, it seems like Chennai Super Kings will enter the contest as a relatively weaker unit, largely because of the absence of Josh Hazlewood who was supposed to be their bowling’s spearhead in the tournament.

Therefore, the prediction is that Delhi Capitals, who have a very balanced squad, will win the match and start the competition on a positive note.

Tip 1: Shikhar Dhawan to lead the charge for Delhi at the top of the innings.

After sitting on the sidelines for the T20I series, Shikhar Dhawan made a strong comeback with the bat and notched up two half-centuries for India in the ODI series played against England.

Last year, swashbuckling opener was instrumental in helping Delhi Capitals reach the finals of the Indian Premier League. In 17 matches, Dhawan accumulated 618 runs at an average of 44.14 with two centuries and four half-centuries to his name.

Given his incredible consistency for Delhi in the past couple of years, we are expecting Shikhar Dhawan to score 30 runs or [email protected].

Tip 2: Kagiso Rabada eyes another strong start to the season

In the previous two edition of Indian Premier League, South African pacer Kagiso Rabada has been nothing short of sensational. Last year, Rabada topped the bowling charts in the competition and claimed 30 wickets in 17 matches with four four-wicket hauls to his name.

The 26-year old certainly enjoys bowling in these conditions and will be looking to do well for Delhi Capitals in this year’s competition. Due to wicket-taking ability with the new-ball, we are expecting Kagiso Rabada to take two wickets or [email protected].


Expect Delhi Capitals to overcome Chennai Super Kings in this contest and register their first win of the season.

  1. Shikhar Dhawan to score 30 runs or more- Delhi [email protected].
  2. Kagiso Rabada to take two wickets or more- Delhi Capitals @2.00
