DC vs CSK Match Prediction: Delhi Capitals are one of only three teams in IPL 2024 who are yet to taste a win. Considering the profile of their next opponents, they are in danger of losing three on the trot. But the positive for Delhi here is that they are at home. And there's no place that comforts more than the familiarity with the home conditions. That's why DC has to be more aggressive and more proactive in front of their own fans and kick start their dwindling season.

That's said, it's easier said than done. CSK are full of players who are in red-hot form. DC bowlers will face two of the best current players in the world, as Rachin Ravindra and Ruturaj Gaikwad will open the innings for the reigning IPL champions. The likes of Khalil Ahmad, Mukesh Kumar and Anrich Norje all have to be ready to face the challenge.

Here's 3 Players Battle To Watch Out For In DC vs CSK IPL Match 13

1. Rachin Ravindra vs Khalil Ahmad
 

Rachin Ravindra has taken to the IPL as a fish takes to the water. He is too good at the moment. At 24, he is start one of the best young talents in the cricket world. In fact, the ODI World Cup was just the start for him. He has taken his game to even new heights. At the moment, he is just imploding in games, sending even the good balls to the boundaries. The young New Zealander scored 37 runs in only 15 balls against Bangalore.

But Khalil Ahmad won't bog down, for he is also in terrific form at the moment. In fact, Khalil is one of only few players in DC ranks who have lived up to their name.

2. Ruturaj Gaikwad vs Anrich Nortje

There's no question about that Anrich Nortje didn't start the IPL 2024 season the way it was expected from him. He was wayward at times and struggled to bowl with consistency in his first match in IPL 2024. That was weird to look because Nortje is a super bowler who turns up good for his teams more often than not. We can expect a better show from the South African speedster.

If he has to produce goods for DC, Nortje will have to deal with CSK captain Ruturaj Gaikwad. The 27-year-old will of course open the innings for CSK. He looked in great touch against Gujarat Titans, scoring 46 runs off 36 balls. Thus Nortje vs Gaikwad matchup could decide the direction of this encounter.

3. David Warner vs Mustafizur Rahman

Chennai Super Kings shore up their bowling attack big time when they signed Mustafizur Rahman. The Bangladesh left-arm bowler has started his CSK journey in the magnificent manner with the 28-year-old picking up six wickets in the first two matches.

David Warner is also in red-hot form. He missed out on a deserved half-century against Rajasthan Royals in the last match. The Australian veteran is also playing with more freedom and looks dangerous as well.
