Chennai Super Kings take on the Delhi Capitals in the 55th game of the Indian Premier League 2023 at their home ground. It will be a very important game for CSK as they look to improve their prospects of moving to the playoffs. They defeated the Mumbai Indians in the last game. The Delhi Capitals have recovered their form in the last few games and come here with a win against the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
The Delhi Capitals have won the last four out of five games after a horrible start that has knocked them out of the playoffs. Their batsmen haven't delivered with consistency which has led to their losses. The Super Kings have enjoyed success at this venue against Delhi and would look to take inspiration from that. We expect a close contest between the two teams in this game.
The Super Kings haven't been consistent, and on many occasions, the opposition has exploited their weakness in bowling. The side did well in the last game against the Mumbai Indians, winning by 6 wickets. It will be a very important game as far as their qualification into the playoffs is concerned. The Delhi Capitals have done well in the last few games, and CSK needs to be at its best to win here.
Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad have scored more than 800 runs, and the opening pair shall look to deliver a positive start in this game. The middle order is well-balanced, and the team will need runs from Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, and Shivam Dube. CSK bats deep, and they shall expect runs from Ravindra Jadeja, Dhoni, and Mooen Ali, all of whom have made runs this season.
This isn't the best bowling attack CSK has had over the years. The bowlers did well in the last game, and they will expect tight spells from Deepak Chahar and Tushar Deshpande with the new ball. Jadeja and Moeen Ali have a lot of experience, and they will need to put brakes on Delhi's batsmen, who are in good form. The side will also need good spells from Matheesha Pathirana and Maheesh Theekshana.
Top Batsman – Devon Conway
Top Bowler – Deepak Chahar
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 starting the tournament with five consecutive losses, David Warner's side has made a turnaround and won the last four out of five. They defeated the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 7 wickets in the last game. Though the side can't make it to playoffs anymore, they will look to ride this momentum. It will be tough against Chennai, but the Capitals can play without pressure.
Phillip Salt has done well in recent games, and he will look to offer a solid start with skipper Warner. The lack of consistency in the middle order has hurt the side, and they will need a strong show from Mitchell Marsh, Manish Pandey, and Rilee Rossouw. Axar Patel, Ripal Patel, and Aman Hakim Khan must do well in this game for the side to win.
The bowling attack is up against a strong batting line-up, and they will need a good show from Khaleel Ahmed and Axar Patel with the new ball. Instant Sharma has bowled well and will need support from Mukesh Kumar in the middle overs. Kuldeep Yadav and Marsh must bowl well for the side to win.
Top Batsman – Philip Salt
Top Bowler – Axar Patel

The skies over Chennai will clear on May 10, and the conditions are expected to be hot and humid during the game. The wicket will play well, as we have seen big scores in the last few games. It is a big final and hence the side that bats first would be happy to put up 170 runs on the board.
MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, balances it out between batsmen and bowlers. There is something for everyone here. Fast bowlers get good rewards with the new ball, and spinners are known for enjoying the slowness in the surface. Batsmen who apply themselves and rotate strikes have done well at this venue.
The last three games have seen the sides chasing the score, winning it comfortably. It will be a high-pressure contest, and losing early wickets can set a team back. Both captains would like to play it safe here; hence, we believe the side winning the toss will likely opt for bowling first in the game.
Delhi Capitals have recovered form in the last few games. Though they have been lucky occasionally, they have cashed in on their luck. Their record at this venue is poor, and the Capitals must beat the odds to win this game. The Chennai Super Kings have an excellent record at home, and the team has its top order in good form. CSK shall start favorites to win this game.
