Match 55 of the 2022 TATA Indian Premier League brings us live action from the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy stadium in Mumbai for the clash between the Chennai Super Kings and the Delhi Capitals.

The MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings are coming into this game off the back of a hard-fought performance which resulted in a defeat, and they would want to get over it immediately. The Capitals, on the other hand, are coming into this game with a victory, having posted a high total. 

The CSK currently lie ninth in the table, having played ten games with three wins and seven defeats. Though they performed well in their last outing and managed to put up a good fight while chasing the 174-run target posted by the Royal Challengers Bangalore, the match resulted in a defeat for them as the RCB bowlers kept it tight for the CSK batters, leading them to a 13-run defeat. One positive the CSK could take away from this match, though, was the return to form of their opening batters Devon Conway, who scored a much-needed 56 off 37 balls, and Ruturaj Gaikwad, who scored 28 off 23 balls. Chennai will be hoping for them to build on their recent performances. 

The Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, lie fifth in the table with five wins and five defeats from their ten games. They are coming into this game off the back of a blistering performance in their previous one, where they managed to post a total of 207/3 off their 20 overs. It was an all-round performance in the batting department for the Delhi Capitals, as their top order of David Warner, Rishabh Pant and Rovman Powell scored quick-fire runs. While Warner scored a blistering 92 off 58 balls, Pant scored 28 off 16 balls, while Powell thunder-bolted the innings by scoring 67 off 35 balls.

Last five matches: Chennai Super Kings: 1 | Delhi Capitals: 4

Batter to watch out for: David Warner

Although there are a lot of batters to watch out for in this game, I predict David Warner to score big again. Having scored 92 runs off just 58 balls in the previous game against his former team, Warner will be coming into this game high on confidence to give a good start to the Delhi Capitals and take them past the finish line for a win to increase their chances for a Playoff spot.

Bowler to watch out for: Mukesh Choudhary 

Mukesh Choudhary is an emerging player and is proving to be a trump card for the Chennai franchise. He will try to gain confidence from his previous performances and post another good bowling performance against the strong batting line-up of the Delhi Capitals.

Fantasy XI

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway (c), Prithvi Shaw, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Rovman Powell, Rishabh Pant (vc), Mukesh Choudhary, Dwaine Pretorious, Anrich Nortje, Khaleel Ahmed

Match Prediction

It is a tough call to make. Although, with the likes of David Warner returning back to form and their bowling line-up looking stable, I predict the Delhi Capitals to win this fixture. 

I am an excited learner and aim at constant improvement. I am highly motivated to constantly keep learning and applying my knowledge and skills about the field of sports and the intricacies around it to grow professionally—a high-octane performer, essential for a professional working environment.
