Match 2: CSK VS DC

Delhi Capitals (DC) geared up their VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 campaign with a 7-wicket victory against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday.

Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw made a kick start that helped DC chase down a challenging total with ease. With a target score of 189, DC needed an aggressive start from their openers and the pair of Dhawan and Shaw did that successfully. 

On the other hand, CSK skipper MS Dhoni introduced spin into the attack to put an end to the opening partnership and this provided them with a breakthrough. Rishabh Pant, who was captaining for the first time in the IPL joined the party after hitting a four that was bowled by Deepak Chahar, who conceded 12 runs in his last over. 

Further, CSK skipper MS Dhoni got out on the second delivery by providing Avesh with his second wicket. CSK finally reached the 150-mark at the end of 17 overs, hoping to finish on a high note. Avesh bowled excellently well, ending with figures of 2-23 off his four overs.

Sam Curran hit two sixes and a four in the penultimate over and it was his brother, Tom at the receiving end. Nevertheless, Woakes hit the last ball thus making their team proud.
