DC vs CSK Team Predicted Playing 11 for Today Match LIVE Updates:
The CSK middle order looks a tad weak in the absence of Suresh Raina and with the hamstring injury to Ambati Rayudu. Captain Dhoni needs to show more initiative and bat at Number 5 or 6. Lungi Ngidi has been very expensive and could be replaced with the line and length specialist, Josh Hazlewood. Murali Vijay has looked out of sorts in the two outings thus far and not only does he need a significant performance but also a push-on in the powerplay. Faf du Plessis has been their most sought after batsman and there will be a lot of pressure on him to deliver yet again.
DC will hope for a better show from their top 3 – Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan and Shimron Hetymer – they were all dismissed for single-digits against KXIP. Kagiso Rabada was brilliant against KXIP but DC will hope from a better performance from Mohit Sharma who went for 45 in his 4 overs.Rishabh Pant will hold the key in the middle order and will remain the difference between a par score of 160 or a winning total of 180-plus should they bat first. Ishant Sharma is still recovering from a back spasm and will most likely again miss out being in the playing XI. Axar Patel will form a crucial spin partnership in the middle overs.
