CSK vs DC Match Report 7
It was Delhi Capitals (DC) again who recorded their second win in the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 as they beat Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 44 runs at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday.
CSK made one change to their playing, bringing in Josh Hazlewood in place of Lungi Ngidi, who won the toss. It was Prithvi Shaw who set the ball rolling for DC, hitting two fours in the first over bowled by Deepak Chahar. CSK badly needed a breakthrough and Chawla provided them with one, dismissing Dhawan in the 11th over. The leg-spinner struck one more time as Shaw was stumped. Nevertheless, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant joined forces in the middle following Shaw’s dismissal in the 13th over and added 58 runs in total.
Finally, Faf du Plessis and Kedar Jadhav put up a 54-run stand for the next wicket and this made CSK hope for the best. However, Nortje got Jadhav out LBW in the 16th over.
While du Plessis enjoyed a couple of reprieves, but he was eventually dismissed for 43 by Kagiso Rabada in the 18th over.
With CSK requiring 55 in the last two overs, DC was successful in hitting 10 solid runs in the last two overs and successfully sealed 44-run thus making it their second consecutive win.
