CSK vs DC Highlights
It was Devon Conway with the bat with his 87 off 49 balls and then Moeen Ali with the ball with his spell of 3-13 that guided Chennai Super Kings to a huge win by 91 runs against Delhi Capitals at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. Thanks to this huge win, the Chennai Super Kings' net run rate has now moved into positive and if they can win all of their last three games, they might as well be in the race for a playoff place.
Chasing the target of 209 was always going to be tough, but Delhi Capitals started well. Although they lost a few wickets early on but kept going at a good rate until Moeen Ali came in and got both Micthell Marsh and Rishabh Pant in consecutive overs. That broke the back of the Capitals' chase and from there onwards wickets kept falling until they were all out for 117, losing the game by a huge margin of 91 runs.
Earlier in the evening, after losing the toss and being asked to bat first, Chennai Super Kings got off to a flyer thanks to its openers Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad as they added 110 for the first wicket in only 11 overs.
Though Gaikwad got out, Conway continued and scored 87 off just 49 balls before being caught out, trying to play a cheeky shot. In the end, with the help of some big shots from MS Dhoni, the Super Kings posted a total of 208-6 in their 20 overs.
CSK vs DC Player of the Match: Devon Conway
Devon Conway was rightly adjudged Player of the Match for his brilliant performance with the bat as he scored 87 off just 49 balls, hitting seven fours and five stunning sixes. This was his third consecutive fifty since re-joining the CSK bubble after his return from his homeland South Africa where he went in between IPL for his marriage. In today's game, he was lethal against Kuldeep Yadav, Delhi's main spinner and made a psychological advantage over him and the entire Capitals unit.
The Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant won the toss and decided to field at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai against Chennai Super Kings’ MS Dhoni. Delhi made two changes in the XI as they brought back Axar Patel in place of Lalit Yadav and gave Srikar Bharat a chance to make his Capitals’ debut in place of Mandeep Singh.
Chennai Super Kings had to drop Ravindra Jadeja who was out with an injury. Shivam Dube came in his place while Dwayne Bravo replaced Dwaine Pretorious
