Chennai Super Kings (CSK) got back to winning ways as they beat Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Daredevils (DD) by 13 runs in an Indian Premier League match on Monday night. In reply to CSK's mammoth 211/4, DD never really got off to a steady start as they lost wickets in at regular intervals, which led the required run-rate to creep up. However, Rishabh Pant (79) and Vijay Shankar (54*) steadied the Delhi ship in the middle overs. Pant and Shankar provided one last flourish in the dying overs but could not get their team over the line as the Chennai bowlers were on point. Debutant Lungi Ngidi finished with figures of 1/26 in his stipulated four overs and KM Asif finished with figures of 2/43 in his four overs. After this win, CSK stay on top of the IPL points table with 12 points and Delhi languish at the bottom of the table with just four points from eight matches. (Scorecard)

Earlier, Chennai openers Shane Watson (78) and Faf du Plessis (33) provided a perfect start before skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (51 not out) and Ambati Rayudu (41 not out) finished the proceedings in style to power Chennai Super Kings to 211/4 against Delhi Daredevils. Dhoni and Rayudu were at their destructive best as the duo hammered Delhi bowlers towards the end of the innings and accumulated 79 runs in six overs. Chennai got off to a flying start as openers Watson and du Plessis slammed the Delhi bowlers all around the park. The two took Chennai past the 100-run mark in the 11th over. (Play Fantasy Cricket & Win Lakhs everyday!)

While Watson hammered the bowlers, du Plessis rotated the strike. On occasions the South African player also went for the big shots. The partnership was broken by medium pacer Vijay Shankar, who got rid of du Plessis in the fifth ball of the 11th over. His 33-ball knock was laced with three boundaries and one six.  New batsmen Rayudu and Dhoni then launched the counter attack. Rayudu, who was demoted to fourth spot, initially gave the strike to Dhoni and the Ranchi stumper milked the bowlers. Soon Rayudu also joined the party.

In the 19th over, Delhi got the chance to stop the Dhoni juggernaut as Avesh delivered a short ball and Dhoni pulled it aerially to deep mid-wicket but Munro dropped it. In the same over, Dhoni slammed a 108-metre six, the second longest of this year's tournament. In the last over, Rayudu got run out but Dhoni managed to collect 13 runs. Delhi medium pacers Boult, Shankar and Plunkett proved expensive.

So that is it from this game. Chennai are back to winning ways and Delhi now have made their chances of finishing in the top four even more difficult. Not that it was ever easy but they now have to win almost all their games. Tomorrow, on Tuesday the 1st of May, we have two teams which are themselves desperate for two points playing as Bangalore take on Mumbai at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium at 2000 local (1430 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!

!

Shane Watson has been awarded the Man of the Match for his blistering knock of 78 from 40 balls. It laid the foundation for Chennai to post a big total and eventually grab the win.

!

Rishabh Pant was the only player to put up any kind of a fight. He scored a handsome 79, even threatened to get his side across the line, but it was too much of an ask from just one man. His partnership of 88 with Vijay Shankar was superb, but fell short nevertheless. Shankar did score some lusty blows towards the end to keep things interesting, but it was too little too late. Another loss to Delhi's name this season.

!

Chennai are back to winning ways with a dominating performance at home. After losing to Mumbai at this same place in their previous encounter, this was the perfect response they could have given. First, the batsmen did the job with the bat. Watson fired, then Rayudu and Dhoni joined in and took the Yellow Army past the 200-mark. And then, the fine job was continued with the ball. Early wickets were taken and the pressure was put on.
