The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Delhi Capitals (DC) have already qualified for the playoffs of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019. Both the teams though will look to give their best when they clash on Wednesday at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai in a bid to make sure that they go through as the top two. DC are currently at the top of the tables while CSK are second with an inferior net run-rate. A win in this game for either of the teams will make sure that they will get two shots at making it to the final of the tournament.
The changes look inevitable for CSK after a poor show against the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the previous game. While MS Dhoni still looks unlikely to return, Narayan Jagadeesan will probably take over the wicketkeeping duties. Also, Ravindra Jadeja and Faf du Plessis look set to play this game and they will replace Mitchell Santner and Murali Vijay. DC, on the other hand, won against RCB at the Kotla and are unlikely to change the winning combination.
The 50th game of the IPL between CSK and DC will be hosted by the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai.
The match starts at 08:00 PM local time (14:30 GMT).
The game will be live on Star Sports in India. (Live streaming on Hotstar).
It is expected to be cloudy whole day in Chennai on Wednesday with as much as 94% cloud cover. There is a slight chance of rain according to Accuweather. Though that shouldn’t worry the fans much as it is highly unlikely that the game is washed out. The temperature will hover around 30-32-degrees Celsius and humidity will, as usual, be high.

The pitch was slow and turned in the previous game and it has been the trend this year. It is expected to be the same even in this match and the spinners from both the sides will come into play as the game progresses.

The pitch at Chepauk has been turning a lot and it is better to have as many spinners in your fantasy team as possible.
Faf du Plessis is due for a big knock and it would be better to make him captain in the grand league.
CSK without MS Dhoni looks a weak team and expect DC to come hard at them, especially with the top position at stake.
