Indian Premier League 2020: Chennai Super Kings vs. Delhi Capitals, Match No. 7
Winners Prediction: Chennai Super Kings won their opening match against Mumbai Indians and lost their next match against Rajasthan Royals. Delhi Capitals won their opening match in a thrilling super-over finish. CSK has a better middle order when compared to the Delhi team and will have the upper hand in this contest owing to their better head-to-head record. We expect CSK to win this match.
Score Prediction: Dubai will be a tough pitch for the batsmen with slow track and uneven bounce playing a big factor. The average score at this venue will be around 160 runs. Spinners will play a huge role and pacers will work on their variations big time.
