IPL Highlights, CSK vs DC IPL Score: Imran Tahir Helps Chennai Super Kings Beat Delhi Capitals To Reclaim Top Position
IPL 2019, Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals Highlights: With this win, Chennai Super Kings returned to the top of IPL points table.
Chasing a target of 180 on a slow Chennai wicket, Delhi Capitals (DC) got off to a bad start as young Prithvi Shaw fell in the very first over. Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Shreyas Iyer tried to build their innings with some explosive shots upfront. Both players looked in good touch but Dhawan departed in the last over of the powerplay, after scoring 19 off 13 balls. Post powerplay, Shreyas Iyer continued playing his strokes but the wickets kept falling from the other end. Dhoni introduced spinners from both the ends and Imran Tahir picked up four wickets while Ravindra Jadeja snapped three batsmen to halt Delhi Capitals' run chase. The visitors eventually fell 80 runs short off the target and were bowled out for 99. Earlier, Delhi won the toss and decide to bowl. Shane Watson's bad IPL run continued as he departed in the fourth over without troubling the scorers. Next in, Suresh Raina played with intent and took the game away from the Delhi bowlers. He was timing the ball well into the gaps while Faf Du Plessis continued with strike rotation. The duo completed the fifty-run stand and brought CSK back on track. Du Plessis fell in 14th over off the bowling of Axar Patel, trying to hit him for a six. He was caught by Shikhar Dhawan. In the very next over, Raina also got out trying to accelerate the innings. Thereafter, MS Dhoni (44 off 22 balls) and Ravindra Jadeja (25 off 10 balls) played explosively to help their side post above par total of 179/4. (SCORECARD)
