Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be locking horns with Delhi Capitals (DC) for the first time in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 edition. The match will be played at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai and is slated to begin from 7:30 PM (IST).
MS Dhoni’s Chennai side are presently in the 2nd position of the points table and have logged 6 wins so far in 11 games. One of their games against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) resulted in a No-Result (NR) because of rain.
Delhi on the other hand, look a better and solid side. After a horrendous first half of the IPL 2023 where they lost their first 5 matches, DC have staged a solid comeback and have won 4 out of their last 5 games.
In this article, we take a look at the top 3 vice-captain picks for today’s CSK vs DC game at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai:
1. Devon Conway (Chennai Super Kings)
The 4th highest run-getter in IPL 2023 so far, Devon Conway has been the batting mainstay of the Chennai team. The Kiwi batter has so far amassed 458 runs and has a blistering average of 57.25.
Conway has been striking the ball well and making him the vice-captain of your fantasy team in this CSK vs DC game can be a smart move. He is sure to give you a lot of points at the start of CSK’s batting innings.
2. Phil Salt (Delhi Capitals)
Salt’s inclusion at the top has done wonders for the Delhi team. Phil Salt bagged the player of the match award in the previous game of Delhi versus Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Phil Salt activated his beast mode as he stormed away to a 87-run knock in just 45 deliveries.
His innings was peppered with 8 fours and 6 sixes and he had a terrific strike-rate of 193.33.
3. Ravindra Jadeja (Chennai Super Kings)
One can agree to the fact that Ravindra Jadeja is one of the best all-rounders of our present generation. In the spin-friendly tracks of Chennai, Jadeja will be a key player to watch out for.
In 11 games of IPL 2023, Jadeja has bagged 15 wickets and is the 2nd highest wicket-taker of IPL 2023. He can also contribute with the willow and he can be a good vice-captain option in this game versus Delhi Capitals.
Jadeja can prove to be fatal for the right-handed batters of Delhi in the form of Phil Salt, Mitchell Marsh and Manish Pandey.
