Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals Betting Tips 10/04/2021

Teams Status

The Chennai Super Kings finished second last on the points table last year with just 12 points and were ahead of the bottom-placed Rajasthan Royals on net run rate. They had won six matches and lost eight matches in the 14 league matches. The likes of Kedar Jadhav, Piyush Chawla and Harbhajan Singh have been released by the franchise and they have got in Moeen Ali, Krishnappa Gowtham, Cheteshwar Pujara, Harisankar Reddy and Bhagvath Varma in the auction. Just before the auction, they traded Robin Uthappa from the Rajasthan Royals. They have a good core with the likes of MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis, Dwayne Bravo, Sam Curran and Ravindra Jadeja. In the last season, Faf du Plessis was the team’s leading run-scorer with 449 runs and was the only CSK player in the top 15. The second-highest scorer was Ambati Rayudu with just over 350 runs. Even the bowling department did not click as Sam Curran was the only player to feature in the top 15 as he bagged 13 wickets in 14 matches.

The Delhi Capitals on the other hand finished in the second position and were a part of the playoffs. Despite losing the 1st qualifier to Mumbai, they beat the Sunrisers in the 2nd qualifier to make it to the finals where they lost to the Mumbai Indians again. They finished the group stages with 16 points from eight wins. They released the likes of Keemo Paul, Sandeep Lamichhane, Alex Carey, Mohit Sharma and Tushar Deshpande. Apart from that, they traded out Harshal Patel and Daniel Sams to RCB. They had a pretty ordinary auction as they bought Steve Smith, Umesh Yadav, Ripal Patel, Vishnu Vinod, Lukman Meriwala, M Siddharth, Tom Curran and Sam Billings. But their core remains the same with Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Marcus Stoinis and Kagiso Rabada. Due to the unfortunate injury to Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant will dawn the captain’s armband. Shikhar Dhawan was the leading run-scorer for Delhi with 618 runs at an average of 44.14. Even the skipper Iyer chipped in with a valuable 519 runs. The South African pacer Kagiso Rabada was the leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 30 wickets.

Tipster’s Angel

As this is the first match for both teams, they will be looking to start the tournament with a win. Delhi have built a good team around their core Indian players, but Chennai on the other hand doesn’t look that strong. So, the Delhi Capitals have an edge over Chennai.

Tip: Delhi Capitals To Win @ 1.72

The Delhi Capitals were exceptional last season as they finished in the second position with 16 points. They made it all the way to the finals, which they played against the Mumbai Indians. But they were outplayed by the eventual champions Mumbai. Chennai on the other hand finished in the seventh position with just 12 points as they won just six matches. They started off poorly and couldn’t bounce back and failed to make it to the playoffs. In the last three head to head matches, Delhi has won two and Chennai has won just one match. Delhi managed to beat Chennai in both the fixtures that they played last season. Delhi has a stronger core team when compared to Chennai. So, it is very likely that the Delhi Capital will open their account in their first match and the odds available are 1.72 for the same. 

Tip: Shikhar Dhawan Total Runs Over 24.5 @ 1.83

After a flop T20I series against England, Shikhar Dhawan backed it up with a brilliant performance in the ODI series against them. This might give him loads of confidence going into the IPL. He was the second-highest run-scorer in the tournament last season with 618 runs at an average of 44.14. He had hit four half-centuries and two centuries including the highest score of 106*. He became the first batsman to score two consecutive centuries in the IPL. He has played seven matches against Chennai and has scored 302 runs at a massive average of 60.40. In the last season, he scored 136 runs against Chennai in just two matches and crossed the 24 run mark on both occasions. He crossed the 24 run mark on ten occasions in the 17 matches that he has played. So, it is very likely that Shikhar Dhawan will score over 24.5 runs at 1.83 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.

Conclusion

Both the teams will be eying for that dream start in the tournament and build on the first win going into the tournament. Delhi Capitals slightly have more balance in their side than the Chennai Super Kings.
