Have CSK’s senior men got anything left in the tank?
At the beginning of IPL 2019 I voiced a concern that CSK, despite being packed with quality, were getting a little long in the tooth. They were incredible throughout the opening rounds this season as they drifted apart the Royal Challengers and Delhi with notable screens.

However, my fear that some previous legs might weaken has not been unfounded because the tournament progresses. The top order batting was inconsistent with Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, and Kedar Jadhav all neglecting to find their best form, whilst Faf du Plessis never seens away from an accident lay-off. Chennai’s top order failed miserably at Qualifier 1 against Mumbai, lumbering to 32 for three in the end of the powerplay overs.

The last amount of 131 for four was well within Mumbai’s compass despite several customary lusty blows from MS Dhoni. Even CSK’s captain and talisman has been struggling with injury this season. Not that you would understand it as he’s blasted 405 runs at an incredible average of 133. When he eventually retires CSK have huge shoes to fill.

Chennai head into this Fight game without Kedar Jadhav (shoulder) and it is likely that Murali Vijay will deputise. Since skipper, Dhoni has been blessed with a twist bowling attack with Imran Tahir (23 wickets) capable of changing any game. Deepak Chahar (17 wickets) has spearheaded the seam attack. The lack of speed in the Vizag pitch must play in their hands, but they need a bigger team performance than they provided up against Mumbai if they are supposed to make a rematch in the final.

Capitals young guns firing before their biggest test
In contrast to CSK, Delhi Capitals have a negative packed with youthful talent that have risen to the challenge. The rebrand does seem to have rid the franchise of previous failures since they create the Play=Offs for the very first time in seven seasons. They go in the Chennai challenge in confident mood after already posting their most impressive season up to now.

Shikhar Dhawan (503 runs) has returned to Delhi and additional much needed experience on top of the batting order. With youthful skipper Shreyas Iyer (450) and the slippery knack of Rishabh Pant (450) additionally firing in the middle-order they have got a reputation of being superb chasers. And don’t forget Prithvi Shaw, one of the stars of India’s future, has scored 350 runs from the contest so far. They might be young but they have a big-stage mentality.

The loss of South African Kagiso Rabada has so far not been a issue, but any facet would overlook a 25-wicket fast bowler of the pedigree. Ishant Sharma seems to have filled the violation and Keemo Paul is a child to look out for. The tight win against Sunrisers on Wednesday is another increase for Delhi’s belief since they take their youthful exuberance to attempt to oust CSK, the most followed side from the competition.

If Delhi bat moment they are a great playFive from the seven games played in Visakhapatnam happen to be won by the team batting second, therefore the throw could be critical, especially if it contributes to CSK batting first. Delhi have been fantastic chasing in IPL 2019 and I’d really fancy them to create an upset if they field first.

CSK lead the head-to-head listing with Delhi from 14-6, but that is a stat I’m tempted to dismiss since this is another Delhi. This season CSK won the Delhi match by six wickets and won the return match by 80 runs. History is against me, but I fancy Delhi to win this game and at 2.08 really are a great cost, particularly when batting second.

It’s got to be Dhoni
If taking a punt on CSK’s best batsman, MS Dhoni is your man. He’s outscored all his mature batsmen this season, is not shy of a challenge and he has made it his mission to haul CSK as far as he possibly could. That’s exactly why Chennai fans love the guy and why I love the massive 6/1 on him top scoring . It is the value wager and has every opportunity.

Skipper Shreyas to glow for DC
There are more choices in the Capitals batting market. I have previously mentioned that their top order has enjoyed a trenendous IPL so far and you may be forgiven for carrying Shikhar Dhawan, Privthi Shaw or Rishabh Pant to high score. But I am a sucker for the bigger cost and that’s precisely why my bet goes on captain Shreyas Iyer at the bigger price of 4/1.

Man of the Match markets are excellent Price
And because of my final wager of IPL 2019, I am picking three Man of the Match contenders at reasonable rates. All three of sport changers and if it turns out to be their day we land a nice punt. My collections are Imran Tahir in 11/1, powerhouse Sherfane Rutherford 20/1 and Dwayne Bravo 11/1. Only half-stakes plays here.


Thank you for following my IPL 2019 hints. It has been a great tournament and we’ve made some cash. We stand to land a bit more of my start-of-tournament tip of Mumbai Indians to lift the trophy comes great too.
