IPL 2024: DC vs CSK Match 13 Best Playing 11 for Both Teams

MS Dhoni and his successor Rishabh Pant in focus as we look at the best predicted playing 11 for DC vs CSK Match 13 for IPL 2024. 

We move on to match 13 at the TATA IPL 2024, and we have MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings taking on his successor Rishabh Pant’s Delhi Capitals at Delhi’s new home, Vizag. Both teams are coming into the game with contrasting results. While Chennai Super Kings have won both matches, Delhi Capitals have lost both matches so far.

It’s an important match for Delhi Capitals, who may not want to make it a hat-trick of losses. Honestly, Delhi haven’t played bad cricket by any means so far. It is just that the rub of the green hasn’t gone their way so far. In the first match, Delhi Capitals made 174, but lost in the 20th over. Whereas in the second match, Delhi Capitals almost chased down 186.

Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, have been phenomenal in both matches so far. It has been a dream start for Captain Ruturaj Gaikwad, who cannot have asked for anything better on his captaincy debut. With two wins under the belt, it seems Chennai Super Kings will not do anything wrong this season. They would also be happy to play Delhi Capitals, who are coming into the match with back-to-back losses.

This is the first match at Vizag, and it is supposed to be the home game for Delhi Capitals. Delhi are playing two matches at Vizag, and it will be their home this season for those matches. It would be interesting to see what kind of pitch we will get. So, what team combination will both teams adopt? Well, let’s look at the best predicted playing 11 for IPL 2024 DC vs CSK match 13. 

IPL 2024 Full Squad Players List for Delhi Capitals (DC)

Batters: David Warner (o), Prithvi Shaw, Swastik Chhikara & Yash Dhull 

WKs: Abhishek Porel, Kumar Khushagra, Ricky Bhui, Rishabh Pant (c), Shai Hope (o) &Tristan Stubbs (o)

All-rounders: Axar Patel, Jake McGurk (o), Lalit Yadav, Mitchell Marsh (o) & Sumit Kumar

Delhi Capitals Best Playing 11 vs CSK

Delhi Capitals have had a change in their playing 11 in both matches so far. In the first match, Shai Hope and Ishan Sharma played, but in the second match, both were rested due to injury concerns. While ideally, DC should continue with the same playing 11, the form of Ricky Bhui is a big concern. Bhui has been a big letdown in both matches so far. So, why not Delhi bring back Prithvi Shaw, and give him one more opportunity to perform?

If Delhi Capitals play Prithvi Shaw, he can play at number 3 as well given Marsh and Warner have been doing really as openers. It would be a new role for Shaw, who can also benefit given his woes as an opener in IPL off late. Other than this change, expect Delhi to go with the same players that played in the last match vs RR.

Chennai Super Kings Best Playing 11 vs DC

Chennai Super Kings seldom make any changes in their playing 11, so expect CSK to stick to the same playing 11 with a flexible batting-order as they have been doing. CSK have one of the strongest batting lineups in the competition. So much so that MS Dhoni has not batted in any match so far. However, fans would be hoping for MS to get some game time. 

From the players’ perspective, CSK have seen some really good team effort from all the players. However, if there is one player, who will need to do better in the bowling department, it is Ravindra Jadeja. In the two matches so far, Jadeja has not got a single wicket. He has bowled six overs with good economy, but CSK as a team will be hoping for Jadeja to get those crucial breakthroughs in the middle overs.
