Delhi Capitals beat Chennai Super Kings by 3 wickets
Right. That ends proceedings from this game. We are into the endgame of the group stages in the Indian T20 League, 2021 and on Tuesday, 05th October 2021, we will see the clash between two teams who are aiming for that fourth playoff place - Mumbai will take on Rajasthan at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT), but, the build-up will begin earlier. We hope to have your company for that game. Until then, goodbye and take care!
AXAR PATEL IS THE MAN OF THE MATCH! He says that when one bowls, the game plan remains the same but one needs to assess the pace of the pitch. He adds that the opponents were 10 runs short in the Powerplay which helped. Mentions that Ashwin gave him a couple of pointers in the field setting in order to make the batters hit square as the long boundaries were square of the wicket. Says that he is really happy and this game will boost their confidence going into the playoffs.
Rishabh Pant, the Delhi skipper, says that it is not a bad birthday present. Mentions that in the Powerplay, Chennai came hard at them and got away but then they came back stronger bowling good overs. Tells that it was a low total and is glad that they chased it down in the end. Adds that it's a big win for them as they can assure a top-two finish.
Shimron Hetmyer is in for a quick word! He says that he is paid to finish games and is happy that he was able to do that. On the dropped catch, he says he thought he was out but was lucky. Adds that the plan was to take it as deep as possible and target the 19th over. Mentions that it was easy for him as he had faced Bravo earlier as well and is happy that he could score a couple of boundaries off Bravo.
MS Dhoni, the Chennai skipper, says that they were looking to hit closer to 150. Mentions that they failed to accelerate after the 15th-16th over as the platform was nice and feels that it was a tough wicket. Tells that it was a two-paced wicket as some balls come onto you and some don’t. Mentions that the taller bowlers were getting movement from the pitch. Adds that it was a very good effort from the bowlers to take the game right till the end. Ends by saying that overall, he is very pleased with the effort from his bowlers.
Chennai did not start off well with the ball but they always know how to bounce back when things were going against them. When things got tough, they did well to take wickets at that point and push Delhi back. They were under the pump early on but took wickets regularly. The 15th over by Shardul Thakur felt like the game-changing one as he took 2 wickets, and also the valuable one of Dhawan, but in the end, they could not do enough to win the game. Ravindra Jadeja had a good outing as he bowled well and took 2 wickets. Thakur ended with figures of 4-0-13-2 as well, stepping up when his team needed him too. Josh Hazlewood and Moeen Ali were efficient too but if they had 15-20 more runs on the board, maybe the result could have been different.
Delhi got off to a good start as Prithvi Shaw was looking to attack but he did not last for long. He lost his wicket in the 3rd over and Dhawan and Iyer steadied things slightly before Iyer gifted his wicket away. Pant and debutant, Ripal Patel played handy knocks and stitched decent stands with Dhawan but did not hang around for long. With the players that Delhi had in their ranks, the fact that Dhawan was still out there, and the final cherry on top of the cake, that the total was not a big one, you would think Delhi would cross the line. But, from a position of 93/3, Delhi slipped to 99/6 and also lost Dhawan, and were under pressure. The onus fell on Shimron Hetmyer and Axar Patel and they did well to take the game to the final over but Patel fell. It did not make a difference as Rabada hit the winning runs and took his team past the finish line.
Well, there we have it! When the top 2 sides in the table clash, it is bound to be a close game, and boy, were we treated to a humdinger! The game went down right to the wire and it is Delhi who have emerged victorious as they have won by 3 wickets and move atop the summit as this victory sees them get to 20 points. Chennai came close to winning this but they just fell short.

Dwayne Bravo To Axar Patel OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! The game turns on it's head yet again! With just two needed off 4 balls, Axar Patel looks to play the expansive drive and end proceedings in style. One might question, was that really required? Full and wide, creamed straight to short cover. Moeen Ali takes a brilliant catch under pressure and Patel has to walk back. 2 needed off 3 balls now.

TWO WIDES! Wild delivery from Dwayne Bravo, even he is feeling the pressure. The umpires are discussing whether it's a wide or a no ball as the ball has landed outside the pitch. A wide is signalled in the end. They scamper through for the single as the ball goes to Hazlewood who dives down at short third man.
Kagiso Rabada walks out into the middle.

Slower and well outside off. Hetmeyer leans in and swats it through the cover region. They come back for the second with ease.
Looks like MS Dhoni is going to come up to the stumps. He calls for his helmet and gets is quickly. He does not want Shimron Hetmyer to venture out of his crease.

He gets it off the toe end of the bat and straight down the throat of the substitute fielder, Krishnappa Gowtham. He spills it and to make matters worse for Chennai, the ball goes into the fence.

Shardul Thakur To Shikhar Dhawan OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! What a big moment into the game as Shikhar Dhawan loses his wicket, and it is Shardul Thakur, the man with the golden arm who strikes once again. This time he gets rid of the big fish as Dhawan was well set in the middle. Coming to the ball, he delivers a length ball, outside off. Shikhar Dhawan comes forward and laces his cover drive. Moeen Ali jumps and takes an overhead catch. The ball seems to have just stuck in his hands. No DRS is needed for this and Shikhar Dhawan has to walk back to the pavilion.

Strategic Time-Out! Chennai have turned things around nicely here. At one point, it looked like they would find it hard to stop Delhi's charge but they have kept picking timely wickets and have also removed the well-set Dhawan. Delhi needs 38 more in 30 balls and they still have Shimron Hetmyer and Axar Patel to take them home, but it will not be easy. Let's see who takes this game home.

Shardul Thakur To Shikhar Dhawan
NOT OUT! Short of a length, on leg. Shikhar Dhawan looks to pull but misses. MS Dhoni pouches this one behind the stumps and appeals for a caught behind. He seems very confident and the umpire agrees. Shikhar Dhawan opts for the review. UltraEdge shows a flat line as the ball passes the bat and Shikhar Dhawan survives. Good review from Dhawan.

Shardul Thakur To Ravichandran Ashwin OUT!
OUT! BOWLED! Shardul Thakur has a knack for picking wickets and he gets one. He hurls a length ball, on middle. Ravichandran Ashwin is undone by the pace. He looks to flick but misses. The ball goes through the bat and pad and rattles the furniture behind him. Shardul Thakur gets the breakthrough and he is pumped.

Josh Hazlewood To Rishabh Pant
NOT OUT! This is down the leg side and Pant looks to flick. Pant misses the flick and the ball kisses the pads on the way to the keeper. Dhoni dives down to pouch it but Hazlewood seems confident that there was an edge. Dhoni does go for the review but it did come off the pads and Pant survives. At the end of the Powerplay, Delhi are 51/2!
Change. Ravindra Jadeja is into the attack!

Josh Hazlewood To Shreyas Iyer OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Josh Hazlewood gets the breakthrough. Hazlewood hits the length hard and Shreyas Iyer is caught in two minds. His body moves one way and his bat the other. In the end, Iyer gets squared up as he looks to pull across the line. The ball goes off the outside edge and pops up to short cover. Ruturaj Gaikwad takes the simplest of catches and Delhi lose their second wicket.
DRS time! Is that caught behind? MS Dhoni certainly thinks so as he takes the review. No spike on UltraEdge as the ball passes the bat. Will be not out and Chennai lose their review.

Deepak Chahar To Prithvi Shaw OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Deepak Chahar draws first blood. Length ball, on off. Prithvi Shaw this time looks to clear the in-field but fails to do so. He miscues it in the air towards mid off. Faf du Plessis is stationed over there and he does not make any mistake. Prithvi Shaw was looking so good but has to take the long walk back to the pavilion.
Shreyas Iyer makes his way out now.
