CSK vs DC Preview IPL 2020 - Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are set to lock horns with Delhi Capitals (DC) in the Dubai International Stadium in Dubai as the action continues in the Indian Premier League (IPL). While CSK have won one while losing their other encounter, DC started their IPL 2020 campaign with a nail-biting win against Kings XI Punjab in Super Over.

CSK are looking to get back to winning ways following a crushing defeat to Royal Challengers Bangalore in their second match after winning their season opener against Mumbai Indians. Whereas DC will look to continue their winning run after registering their first win in their opener against KXIP.

The pitch in Dubai has already hosted a handful of games and spinners are likely to come into the game. The average score in Dubai is around 160-170, however, if the batting team gets going then they would be able to post a score somewhere around 190-200 similar to what KXIP did against RCB.

Ravichandran Ashwin is likely to be available for the DC against CSK after the veteran spinner took part in training on Thursday. However, Ambati Rayudu and Dwayne Bravo are set to miss the action again due to their niggles.
