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.
During the toss, the DC skipper, Shreyas Oyer revealed that they have made no changes to their as they wanted to continue with the winning squad. On the other hand, the CSK also made just one change as Shardul Thakur came back in to replace Murali Vijay.
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.
During Pant’s Knock of 38 off 35 balls, the fans witnessed the reason why cricket is a gentleman’s game. Suresh Raina was seen tying Pant’s shoelaces during the game. Pant had just walked into the middle and was looking to get set. Pant is young whereas Raina has been playing competitive cricket for more than a decade now, hence to see the veteran help a youngster was heartwarming.
