Currently, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are battling it out with Delhi Capitals (DC) at the ACA-VDCA Stadium in Visakhapatnam to become the second finalist of the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). After winning the toss, the CSK skipper, MS Dhoni decided to bowl first and soon CSK dismissed both the DC openers inside the powerplay itself.
The men in yellow got the prized wicket of Prithvi Shaw in the third over bowled by Deepak Chahar owing to the brilliant DRS call by Dhoni. In the previous over of Shardul Thakur, Shikhar Dhawan had smashed as many as 13 runs. DC lost the plot after that as they kept on losing wickets on a regular basis as from 37/2 after the powerplay, Delhi was reduced to 80/5.
After that, Rishabh Pant was making a partnership with Sherfane Rutheford, but the latter got out in the 16th over of Harbhajan Singh. However, Pant, who was looking to slow in the last over, was also dismissed Chahar in the penultimate innings and the final over was being bowled by Ravindra Jadeja and eventually, Delhi reached the total of 147/9 in their quota of 20 overs as they gathered as many as 28 runs in the last two overs.
During the chase, in the first over itself, a huge confusion occurred between the CSK openers, Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson. On the third ball of the over, Du Plessis tapped the ball to point and Faf started running and then stopped. Watto also had started to run, stuttered, and but then decided to return back. Both the batsmen meet mid-pitch in utter confusion. There were chances of a run-out at both ends, but they both miss and – eventually – Faf gets down the other end for a single.
