Match Result: Delhi Daredevils beat Chennai Super Kings by 34 runs.
Delhi- Dhoni and Rayudu couldn’t work wonders today as the visitors Chennai Super Kings succumbed to the bottom-languishers Delhi Daredevils and ended up losing by 34 runs.
Put into bat first, Delhi Daredevils started slow and the star-performers Shaw and Shreyas Iyer departed early. Although Rishabh Pant tried to play some big shots, he was dismissed in the Lungi in the 10th over.
It was Shankar and Harshal Patel whose cameo performances helped Delhi post 162 runs on the scoreboard.
Chennai Super Kings in reply could not defend the total and the table toppers lacked the spark, which they are usually known for. Although Rayudu scored a half-century, the other batsmen were not able to shine today.
Amit Mishra conceded 20 runs and picked 2 wickets for DD to keep his team floating throughout the game. Youngster Lamichhane was also impressive with the ball.
It was a no-loss, no gain situation for both the sides as DD are already out of the fray and CSK have already secured a berth in the play-offs. However, this win must have instilled some confidence in the Delhi squad.
