Weather and pitch report
Tomorrow evening’s clash is expected to be cloudy with a slight chance of rain. But, it will not be enough to see the game washed out, fortunately. The temperature will be around the range of 30 to 32°C.
The MA Chidambaram pitch is also expected to be quite slow with a bit of turn. This was seen in most of the IPL 2019 matches there so spinners will have an absolute blast.
Prediction for match result
Both teams head into the game on the back of mixed results, namely a loss for Chennai and a win for Delhi. This match is also set to take place in the Super Kings’ turf, so this DC vs CSK match may be swinging either way.
This is the second time this season that there will be an DC vs CSK meeting. The Delhi home leg of the DC vs CSK tie resulted in the visitors winning.
