Batting first, CSK posted 169-5, which MI chased down in the last over. Australian Maxwell has been getting starts but is unable to convert them into big scores.
"Thala" MS Dhoni has been on fire in the latest edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 so far, impressing with his incredible power hitting that has captains and bowlers across the league extremely anxious. Veteran Gautam Gambhir has made way for a young Shreyas Iyer, who is looking to bring about a change in fortunes of the struggling side. The wickets of Shreyas Iyer and Glenn Maxwell soon followed as pressure kept piling on DD. However, their stand never looked threatening as Shankar never really took off till the last two overs of the match. So Delhi's spirits would seriously be lifted as they travel to Pune on the back of the victory.
DD have their work cut out in today's game as they have managed only 2 wins from the seven games that they have played so far.
In OVERS 3, Faf du Plessis began the over with a four, Watson struck his second four of the innings through point region.
Arizona Cardinals get a sleeper in Mason Cole of Michigan Football
However, he did play left tackle last season for MI football, so he does have some position flexibility. He made 51 consecutive starts for the Wolverines, and 51 consecutive starts at East Lake before that.
Shane Watson, who came out all guns blazing against a hapless Delhi bowling attack, is our batsman of the match.
Watson made a brilliant 78 from only 40 balls and captain Dhoni bludgeoned an unbeaten 51 off 22 deliveries to take the Super Kings up to an imposing 211-4.
Pant blasted 79 from 45 balls before holing out in the 18th over.
WICKET! Pant's blazing knock comes to and end and Lungi Ngidi claims his first IPL wicket. The team CSK is led by MS Dhoni and the team DD is led by Shreyas Iyer.
DD have taken the most wickets in the last five - 21 - taking a wicket every 8.47 overs, conceding a boundary every 6.36 balls compared to the tournament average of 5.00 in this phase. We need to point out the mistakes we have done and we will try to bounce back strong. Having Rayudu in the middle and Faf open gives more stability to the middle order. MS Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu then carried on the good work by the openers and smashed the bowlers to all corners of the ground. He's tall and gets bounce. The team lacks a proper death bowler who can finish off the things. "Too many runs on the board". Losing four wickets had a massive impact. We got really close and it is a positive going into the next match.
