Chennai: After all, even after 13 years, Delhi Capitals’ attempt to win at the home of Chennai Super Kings failed. MS Dhoni’s Chennai defeated Delhi Capitals by a margin of 27 runs at Chepauk Stadium. Chennai registered their seventh win this season on the basis of MS Dhoni’s short innings of the last over and then Deepak Chahar’s initial shock. At the same time, this defeat has given a blow to Delhi’s hopes of reaching the playoffs.

Delhi last beat Chennai at home in 2010. The way the Delhi bowlers started in this match, it seemed that this wait would finally be over. The way the Delhi batsmen started, they did not wait but ended their hopes.

Delhi battered in the beginning

There was a target of 168 runs in front and the way captain David Warner was seen achieving his rhythm in the last 2 matches, it seemed that he would get off to a strong start. But he could not start at all and fell victim to Deepak Chahar in just two balls. Phil Salt again hit 2-3 big shots but he too fell victim to Chahar in the third over.

Even after this there were hopes left for Delhi as Mitchell Marsh was at the crease but Marsh was run out due to a mistake regarding Manish Pandey’s run and the situation became difficult from here.

repeat old mistake again

Pandey himself could not do anything special after this. He and Riley Russo shared a partnership of 59 runs but spent 59 balls for this. Once again, Delhi sent Akshar Patel, running in good rhythm, at the very bottom, while before him sent Ripple Patel, who could not do anything. Akshar, who came at number seven, hit 21 runs in 12 balls but by then the match was out of hand. Matisha Patirana took maximum 3 wickets for Chennai.

Top order failed in front of spinners

It was shocking when Chennai captain Dhoni decided to bat first after winning the toss. Dhoni had said that the pitch would be slow in the second innings. However, even they would not have expected that this decision of theirs could create difficulties for them only. Chennai’s top order could not make much impact this time in front of Delhi’s spinners and in 11.1 overs the team had lost 4 wickets for just 77 runs.

Akshar Patel took the wickets of Rituraj Gaikwad and Devon Cowen, while Kuldeep Yadav trapped Moeen Ali. At the same time, Lalit Yadav took the best catch of Ajinkya Rahane on his own ball.

Dhoni-Jadeja saved lives

Shivam Dubey, who is in excellent form here, hit some big shots, while Ambati Rayudu also supported him. There was a partnership of 36 runs between the two, which gave momentum to Chennai. Although the score was 126 runs till the 17th over and both the batsmen were out. From here Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni made an explosive partnership of 38 runs in just 18 balls and took the team to 167 for 8 wickets.
