Hello and welcome to our blogs of IPL 2019, Delhi capitals and Chennai Super Kings match results. Finally, it is easy for CSK to win against Delhi capitals in Kotla. Shane Watson brought him down to pursue the goal of 148 runs. Suresh Raina and Kedar Jadhav played the knockout and also ensure that there were not many hiccups on the way.
Amit Mishra gave the ball to CSK from Delhi and took two important wickets but eventually proved to be difficult for the domestic team by making 147 runs because they tasted the first defeat of the tournament so far and went to second place while CSK returned to number one.
Dhoni’s strategy and Bravo’s amazing
The senior opener once again played the role of 51 anchors in 47 balls, including seven fours but unfortunately, the front team was Dhoni, who sent Bravo to bowl to slow the match’s score and took Dhawan’s wicket. After failed to accelerate during the last over, the domestic team had to leave the ground as a fighting score of fewer than 180 runs
Shardul Thakur and Imran Tahir had better days on the field for CSK. Harbhajan Singh did perform normally but Ravindra Jadeja did better – two spinners helped Chennai to put pressure on Delhi in the middle overs.
Star’s turn was Dwayne Bravo who took 3/33 in 4 overs. They removed dangerous Rishabh Pant and Colin Ingram in three balls before Shikhar Dhawan was removed.
Now no one will call them the oldest team!
Despite being the oldest team, their experience is above the rest. The oldest team attacked Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant. Both the youngsters were dismissed in the ’20s and Shikhar Dhawan was slow to score 51 runs.
Three days earlier, Chennai had chased 71 runs, but they took their time on a dull pitch. Tonight was different. They quickly lost Ambati Rayudu but Shane Watson (44) and Suresh Raina (30) laid the foundation for chasing with Cameo. Both fell to Amit Mishra. But both Watson and Raina did a commendable job – when Raina left in the 11th over, CSK needed 50 runs in 58 balls, in which 7 wickets were in hand.
Against a strong batting line-up, Delhi Capitals needed an extraordinary bowling performance. When Ishant Sharma dismissed Ambati Rayudu in the third over, the hosts were expecting for a while that they can win a match. But Shane Watson and Suresh Raina added 52 runs for the second wicket in only 4 overs, due to which Delhi was not seeing any hope of winning.
