However, it all started to happen after CSK officially qualified for the playoffs, however, they didn’t leave any stone unturned in the match against Delhi Capitals. They have more experience in the playoffs than DC and MS Dhoni was wary of this.

During the chase, R Ashwin, who is known for his aggression in the field was at his attacking best against Chennai Super Kings. Ruturaj Gaikwad was batting and he was ready with his stance. But Ashwin did not bowl to him and stopped on his action.
