CSK vs DC Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI Updates, Pitch Report & Injury Updates For Match 2 – Apr 10th 2021
Shikhar Dhawan has enough experience to know how to find his form back.
Updated - May 7, 2021 2:10 pm
Fans of the Indian Premier League will associate words like ‘class’ and ‘dominance’ with Chennai Super Kings. So when Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men finished at the 7th position in the last edition, it was a surprise for everyone. But the greatness of a team is not defined by the trophies they have won, but how they responded after tasting failure.
CSK have made some good additions to their team and they are likely to give their squad a better overall balance. But the challenge will still be very tough against last season’s finalists Delhi Capitals, who are looking stronger than ever before with their captain Rishabh Pant in scintillating form.
Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals
Venue: Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai
Time: 7:30 PM IST

The surface at the Wankhede Stadium is always favourable for the batsmen. Anything under 180 should be chased down easily here.

Top Picks for CSK vs DC Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batsmen
While many of their trusted players had a poor season in 2020, Faf du Plessis was very consistent. In his last 4 T20 games, he has scored 30+ runs on two occasions. What makes him a must pick is that the South African always tends to do well against Delhi.
Shikhar Dhawan’s current run of form is not what we are accustomed to seeing from him, but he has enough experience to know how to find his form back. Back in January, he scored a fantastic 77.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Marcus Stoinis was influential for the Capitals in his last IPL season. Recently in a T20I series against New Zealand, he performed well with the bat. In one game, he scored 78 runs from just 37 deliveries.
Ravindra Jadeja has fully recovered from his injury, which will be a big boost for CSK. In his last 2 games for CSK, he scored 31 runs and also picked up 2 wickets.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Shardul Thakur has been phenomenal in the blue kit of India in recent times, and now he will have to do a similar job against the blue shirts of Delhi. In his last 2 T20I matches, he has picked up 6 wickets.
Dwayne Bravo does not get a chance to bat much in these days, but he still is very effective with the ball. In his last 3 T20 games, he picked up 3 wickets and also maintained an impressive economy rate.
Top Picks – Wicketkeepers
Rishabh Pant’s T20 form might surprise you, as he hasn’t been as great in this format recently as he has been in ODIs or Tests. But in his last two games, both of which were ODIs, he scored 155.
Suggested Playing XI No.1 for CSK vs DC Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Rishabh Pant (vc), Shikhar Dhawan (c), Faf du Plessis, Ajinkya Rahane, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ambati Rayudu, Chris Woakes, Moeen Ali, Tom Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar
Suggested Playing XI No.2 for CSK vs DC Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:
Rishabh Pant, Suresh Raina, Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Faf du Plessis (C), Marcus Stoinis (VC), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Amit Mishra, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur
CSK vs DC Risky Captaincy Picks:
Prithvi Shaw’s performance in T20 cricket has not been great recently, but he has been fabulous in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. In his last 3 games he scored two centuries and one half-century. He can be a differential captaincy pick.
Sam Curran’s story is also similar. He hasn’t done anything significant in T20 cricket lately, but in his last ODI game, he played a brilliant knock of 95 and also picked up a wicket.
Player you should avoid:
Shimron Hetmyer was unimpressive in the last edition of IPL, and in his last 5 T20 games, he has scored over 25 runs only once. So, you might want to give him a miss while picking your Dream11 Fantasy teams.
