<p><br /><span style="font-size:1.2em;font-weight:700">Chennai Super Kings v Delhi Capitals, MA Chidambarram International Stadium</span></p><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/cricket/in/indian-premier-league/chennai-super-kings-vs-delhi-capitals-3753743/?mtid=6" target="_blank"><strong>Wednesday 30 April, 15.30</strong></a></p><p>All eyes will be on <a href="https://i.oddsmarket.com/5c898ed37074f50b4e361617/original-MS-Dhoni?d=950x950" target="_blank">MS Dhoni</a> ahead of this one. The Chennai captain, often inspirational as he is unpredictable, has been suffering with an illness and a back problem. He has missed two games this term. Chennai have lost both.</p><p>The last of those was against their nemesis – Mumbai Indians. For the second time in the tournament against the powerhouse franchise they produced a pathetic performance. They should feel vulnerable taking on a Delhi Capitals side who have stormed to the top of the table after finally learning how to stop a collapse.</p><p>Chennai, for so long so strong, suddenly appear to be losing their way. It’s now three defeats in the last four and a trend has consistently emerged which shows they are having problems scoring quick runs. They score at only 6.4 runs in the powerplay as Shane Watson and Faf Du Plessis have plodded along.</p><p>This gives us our best chance of a winning bet. Delhi are, frankly, gung-ho in the first six and they might not need to be even at their best to get the noses in front. Shikhar Dhawan is their blitzer in chief and he is second only to David Warner, the Sunrisers Hyderabad opener, in runs scored in the powerplay. He has 270.</p><p>For some reason, <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" target="_blank">Bet365</a> make Chennai a warm order on this market while pretty much every other layer can’t split them. Take the even money (2.0) that DC do the business in the first six.</p><p>Considering the paucity of runs coming from Chennai’s front end, a gamble on Dhoni at 6/1 (7.0) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" target="_blank">Ladbrokes</a> could pay dividends. Remember, if he doesn’t play you get money back.</p><p>Elsewhere, check top Delhi bowler odds. This is a spinning wicket and twirlers have dominated the top bowler markets. That lets in one of our old favourites, Sandeep Lamichhane.</p><p>Lamichhane has forced his way back into the XI and it is no surprise Delhi are on a surge as a result. On a helpful track he is worth betting at prices in the region of the 7/2 (4.5) mark.</p><p><br /><span style="font-size:1.2em;font-weight:700">Best tips for the match</span></p><p>Back Delhi most runs in first six over at evens Bet365</p>
