The 55th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) will see Delhi Capitals (DC) take on the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy Stadium in Mumbai on Sunday, 8 May.
Delhi Capitals are beginning to find their groove in IPL 2022 with a thumping win over Sunrisers Hyderabad earlier in the week. They will be keen to sustain their push for a top-four finish with another such performance. However, they face a Chennai Super Kings side who have seemingly improved under the leadership of MS Dhoni. With a balanced side to fall back on, Chennai Super Kings will fancy a win over Rishabh Pant and Co. With two valuable points up for grabs, an entertaining game beckons in Mumbai.

As seen in previous games, the pitch at the DY Patil Stadium is slightly on the slower side. The new ball should move around early on, keeping the batters on their toes. However, as the match progresses, the surface should slow down, bringing the spinners into play. The ball should get grip and hold a bit off the surface, making it a touch difficult for strokeplay. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, with dew bound to have a say in the second innings.
Today’s CSK vs DC Dream11 match top picks
Rishabh Pant: Rishabh Pant has shown glimpses of his ability in IPL 2022, but he is due for a big one. The southpaw is a brilliant player of spin and given CSK's over-dependence on spinners in the middle overs, Pant is a fine addition to your CSK vs DC Dream11 fantasy team.
Ruturaj Gaikwad: After a slow start to his IPL 2022 campaign, Gaikwad has hit his strides, scoring some valuable runs at the top of the order. While he is a decent player of both pace and spin, Gaikwad's ability to score big runs in this format should make him one to watch out for today.
Mitchell Marsh: Mitchell Marsh hasn't had the best of IPLs so far, getting off to starts without converting them. While his batting alone should warrant a place in your CSK vs DC Dream11 fantasy team, his added bowling prowess makes him a valuable proposition.
Maheesh Theekshana: Maheesh Theekshana has been CSK's best bowler this season, impressing in the powerplay and middle overs. Theekshana's variations and skill make him a genuine wicket-taking option and with the conditions also favoring spin, he can be backed to continue his fine form.
