Chasing 148 to win, Chennai Super King (CSK) openers Faf du Plesis and Shane Watson batted sensibly upfront and didn't score much runs in first few overs. Once the ball got old they started to play their shots. du Plesis took the charge and changed the momentum in last two powerplay overs where he scored majority of 26 runs. He scored 50 off 39 balls and departed soon after completing his fifty. After his departure, Shane Watson changed gears and started hitting boundaries. He scored 50 off just 32 balls. Ambati Rayudu's run-a-ball 20 ensured CSK cross the line and reach their 8th IPL final. Earlier, after being invited to bat in Qualifier 2, Delhi Capitals (DC) got off to a poor start as both their openers were back in pavillion inside powerplay. Prithvi Shaw (5 off 6) could not emulate his last match performance and was the first one to depart. His partner Shikhar Dhawan (18 off 14) started brightly but couldn't carry on for long and fell in the 6th over. Colin Munro (27 off 24) was promoted up the order and he took his chances early on and hit few good shots. Despite that he struggled against spinners Chennai Super Kings spinners and ultimately was undone by Ravindra Jadeja.  Delhi skipper Shreyas Iyer too lofted the ball in the air trying to accelerate the innings. Rishabh Pant didn't get the necessary support as wickets kept falling for Delhi Capitals from one end. Pant batted sensibly and kept the scoreboard ticking. He scored 38 off 25 balls before getting out in the 19th over. Delhi Capitals finished their innings brightly as Ishant Shrama collected 10 runs off Ravindra Jadeja's final over. (SCORECARD)

  • 22:07 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Four!

    Faf du Plesis is looking very positive tonight. He sweeps Amit Mishra for a four towards the deep square leg. He came nicely under the ball and hit it along the ground all the way to the boundary. Minimum risk and maximum result.
  • 21:59 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Hat-trick of fours!

    Faf du Plesis is making up for slow CSK start and in some way. He wants to end the powerplay well and for that he has chosen Ishant Sharma. He has hit three fours off consecutive deliveries. 
  • 21:57 (IST)May 10, 2019

    SIX!

    First maximum for CSK. Faf du Plesis is the man. He once again made room and transfers his weight onto his backfoot and clobbers that one over extra cover fence for a six. That was a class act.
  • 21:54 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Four!

    First boundary

    First boundary of CSK innings. The ball was pitched marginally short and du Plesis shifted his weight quickly and hit it firmly on the on side for a four.
  • 21:41 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Another run out chance!

    du Plesis called for the run as soon as he played the shot and but still it was a close call. Had the fielder hit the stumps directly, he would have been out
  • 21:36 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Miscommunication!

    Miscommunication between du Plesis and Shane Watson could have costed CSK a wicket as both batsmen ran to one end but luckily for them the throw was even worse and  they also complete one off overthrow. Not a good start by any means.
  • 21:19 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Great finish!

    Ishant finishes the innings with 10 runs. Both time he dispatched ball straight down the ground for a four and a six. Strong finish from Delhi Capitals. But is it enough? We shall find out...
  • 21:16 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Dropped!

    Ravindra Jadeja drops a sitter. Boult hit it firmly and Jadeja uncharacteristically dropped it. 
  • 21:15 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Four from Mishra!

    Mishra improvises and hits it behind square for a four.
  • 21:14 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Superman du Plesis!

    Amit hits that firmly, only to find du Plesis whose superman effort keeps the ball in and the batsmen complete two.
  • 21:11 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Pant departs!

    Deepak Chahar bowls a low full-toss, Pant tries to clear the long on fence but loses his grip and doesn't get the desired power. Bravo at long on takes a good catch.
  • 21:05 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Yorker and bowled!

  • 21:02 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Appeal for caught behind!

    Dwayne Bravo bowls outside leg stump and appeals/screams for a caught behind but the umpire doesn't concur. It has not been given wide though. Probably the ball did hit something.
  • 20:57 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Catch but beyond fence!

    Rishabh Pant hits that to long off fielder who manages to catch it but at the same time crosses the fence. It's a six. Luck escape for Pant. Dhoni is not happy, he has asked him to come inside 30-yard circle. 
  • 20:55 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Between two fielders!

    Rishabh Pant times that beautifully. The ball dissects two fielders on the on side for a four. 
  • 20:53 (IST)May 10, 2019

    Rutherford departs!

    The good shot followed by a bad one. Rutherford tries to clear the mid wicket fence but mistimes his shot. The ball takes outside-edge and Shane Watson at short third-man takes a sitter.
  • 20:50 (IST)May 10, 2019

    SIX!

    First maximum of the batch. Short from Harbhajan Singh and Rutherford waits on his backfoot and hoists it over extra cover boundary for a maximum. That was some shot.
