The Delhi Capitals have changed their name from the Delhi Daredevils recently; last season was the first with their new name. They are the only team in the IPL to have never qualified for a final and are hoping the name change can help with that, the DC vs CSK clash puts them against one of the best franchises in the competition to judge where they are.
The Capitals play their home games at the Arun Jaitley Stadium which is located in New Delhi, and they would love to bring success to the region after struggling for years. The franchise has a new feel with the name change, but can those on the field do anything to turn their luck around?

DC vs CSK IPL 2019
The DC vs CSK IPL 2019 game was the first between these two since the name change for the Delhi Capitals, marking a new era for the team. While they were beaten in this game and were beaten in all three meetings against the Super Kings, Delhi will have learnt a lot from them. If you want to be the best in the IPL, it is teams like Chennai you have to get the better of, they set the benchmark, and now the Capitals know just how high it is for them to go after.
DC vs CSK 2019
The DC vs CSK 2019 game was closer than most had anticipated, and the Super Kings eventually only won with two balls remaining. The game was low scoring, with the Delhi Capitals batting first and putting a modest 147 on the board. Shikhar Dhawan top-scored for them with 51 from 47 balls but even he struggled to get going and score freely in this tight game. Dwayne Bravo was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets on the day for just 33 runs from four overs.
Leading the way for the Super Kings with the bat was Shane Watson, their hero on so many occasions. He scored 44 from 26 balls, enough to earn him the man of the match award and from both teams he was the only one to really swing his bat and score quickly. MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina both scored 30s to help Watson, and that all came together to give the Super Kings the win with two balls remaining.
DC vs CSK Prediction
The Delhi Capitals are a team to watch ahead of the 2020 season, which makes a DC vs CSK prediction very hard. The Delhi Capitals found out exactly what they needed to do to compete last season, and with the name change behind them, they are looking to make a move and compete with those at the top of the league this coming season.
The Chennai Super Kings are one of the teams that often sets the bar, and again they are expected to challenge for the title. When you look at the facts from last season, the Delhi Capitals were beaten on all three occasions they played the Super Kings, can they turn that around this season as they look to edge closer to landing that elusive first IPL title?

DC vs CSK Head to Head
The DC vs CSK head to head figures below includes the games when Delhi was called the Delhi Daredevils. However, whichever name they use, the figures do not look good for them, and if they do want to win a title with their new name, then it is teams like the Super Kings that they have to start beating regularly.
Games played: 21
Delhi Capitals wins: 6
Chennai Super Kings wins: 15
As you can see above, the Super Kings are dominating the head to head with 15 wins from 21 games so far. The games played since the name change to the Capitals makes for even worse reading. The 2019 season was the first time these two met since the name change, and they played three times, twice in the regular season and one IPL playoff game. The Chennai Super Kings came out on top in all three of these meetings, a blow to the Capitals in their first season with the new name.
If Delhi wants to make a splash with their new franchise name, then it goes without saying that they have to be better against the bigger teams, including Chennai, and that starts with turning around their head to head record against them.
