It's the battle between the two teams who are at the opposite ends of the points table. The Chennai Super Kings will lock horns with a resurgent Delhi Capitals side at the M.A Chidambaram Stadium on Wednesday.

After their match was halted by rain against the Lucknow Super Giants, the MS Dhoni led CSK team trounced over arch-rivals, Mumbai Indians and have stationed themselves at the second position in the points table. Another win will further strengthen their position and will take the Super Kings closer to a playoff berth.

Meanwhile, it has been a topsy-turvy season for the Delhi Capitals. They started the tournament with five defeats in a row, but have resurrected themselves with four wins out of the last five matches.

They now face a stern test in the form of the Super Kings, who are flying-high at the moment.

What is the venue of the CSK vs DC Match?

The fortress Chepauk, or the M.A Chidambaram Stadium will host the two teams on Wednesday evening. The Super Kings have lost two games out of five at this venue in IPL 2023 and will be aiming for a better show against the Capitals. Expect the surface to stay on the slower side, favouring the spinners as the game progresses.

What are the expected changes in the playing XI of  CSK vs DC ?

CSK batting coach, Mike Hussey has stated that all-rounder Ben Stokes is fit and raring to go. However, MS Dhoni doesn't like to tweak his winning combination, and with the pitch favouring the spinners, expect the same XI to feature against DC, which thumped the Mumbai Indians last week.

Expected playing XI of Chennai Super Kings

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Deepak Chahar, Matheesha Pathirana, Tushar Deshpande, Maheesh Theekshana

Impact Players: Ambati Rayudu, Shiak Rasheed, Mitchell Santner, Ben Stokes, Akash Singh.

What are the expected changes in the playing XI of DC vs CSK?

They say never change your winning formula, and DC should look to play with the same playing XI that defeated RCB. However, with too many left-handers in the CSK lineup, they might be tempted to include Lalit Yadav in the playing XI in place of Aman Khan. Lalit can chip in with the bat and can also bowl off-spin.

Anrich Nortje missed DC's last match due to the birth of his child. If the South African speedster is back in the squad, he might be included in place of fellow South African, Rilee Rossouw.

Expected playing XI of Delhi Capitals

David Warner (c), Philip Salt (wk), Mitchell Marsh, Rilee Rossouw, Manish Pandey, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mukesh Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed

Impact Players: Aman Hakim Khan, Sarfaraz Khan, Prithvi Shaw, Rovman Powell, Lungi Ngidi.

Winner Prediction

Chepauk is CSK's fortress and beating them at their own backyard is not an easy task. The team led by MS Dhoni is riding high on confidence at the moment, and despite DC's new found energy, they are likely to fall short in front of the Super Kings.
