MS Dhoni returned as skipper in the last match for CSK but he wasn’t able to change the fate of this side this season. Chennai Super Kings are out of the playoffs contest but they will like to win their remaining games to gain some confidence for the upcoming season. 

Delhi Capitals were superb in their last match and both of their batting and bowling departments are looking great. The team combination of DC is also better than CSK. 

Hence, we predict that Delhi Capitals will beat Chennai Super Kings in match 55 of IPL 2022.
