In yet another dismal show, three-time IPL champions Chennai Super Kings suffered a 44-run defeat against a charged-up Delhi Capitals on Friday night, and will now need a quick turnaround to put their campaign back on track. Credit is, however, due to DC’s Prithivi Shaw for his 43-ball 64 and South African pacers Kagiso Rabada (3/26) and Anrich Nortje (2/21) for their superb spells. This was the second consecutive defeat of the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led team as they were outplayed in every department of the game by Delhi, who rode an all-round effort to set up their second win of the season, at the Dubai International Cricket stadium. DC are now on top of the points table with four points from two matches. Thanks to Shaw’s clinical batting, Delhi, after being put into bat by Dhoni, scored 175 for three wickets in 20 overs. Then, the DC bowlers, too, stepped up the gas and the Shreyas Iyer-led team registered a massive win by restricting CSK to 131 for seven in 20 overs.

After a lacklustre outing against Rajasthan Royals, three-time IPL champions Chennai will take on Delhi Capitals in a league encounter. In their last game, the MS Dhoni-led side suffered a 16-run defeat and barring Faf du Plessis most of the CSK players failed in leaving an impact. Moreover, Dhoni’s decision to come down the order backfired and the charismatic captain received a backlash from not only fans but also many cricketing greats like Sunil Gavaskar, Gautam Gambhir, and others. Dhoni later clarified on his decision to come lower down the order. The captain himself wasn’t happy with the bowlers.

Also, the decision to replace an unfit Ambati Rayudu with Ruturaj Gaikwad didn’t click as the debutant was back in the dugout without troubling the scorers. Moreover, CSK openers failed in both games and that is another cause of concern for the team management. Sam Curran, who has been promoted up the order, played a cameo in both games but the England all-rounder needs to spend some time in the middle. Dhoni had hit three maximums in the final over against the Royals, but that couldn’t win the game.

On the other hand, Delhi were on the verge of defeat in their first game against Kings XI Punjab before Marcus Stoinis rescued his side to push the contest to the Super Over decider. Later, it was Kagiso Rabada who showed his talent with the ball and ensured the night belonged to DC.
The DC top-order failed to fire against Punjab while Rishabh Pant and skipper Shreyas Iyer showed some resistance with the bat. But they were unable to convert their efforts into a big innings. It was Stoinis, who hammered 53 off 21 balls to propel his side to a fighting total.
