DC’s skipper Rishabh Pant opted to bowelbowl first on winning the toss, however the decision failed abruptly as the last year champ samshed DC’s bowling attack. Rishabh’s squad seemed helpless in the entire match and failed miserably. The team knocked first wicket when CSK had already added 110 runs to the scorecard. The team however still failed to return to track which resulted in setting up of a high scoring match for chase.

Dhoni finishes off in style
After the wonderful knocks delivered by Conway(87) Ruturaj Gaikwad(41) and Shivam Dube(32), Dhoni took guard and ensured that the team crossed the 200 runs mark. The skipper stepped into the field in the 18th over and smashed 21 runs in just 8 balls, pushing the team in a situation which could be defended easily.

Ruturaj Gaikwad-Conway combo delivered a better than perfect

Ruturaj Gaikwad and Conway, the new opening combo of CSK once again delivered a massive start to the team and scored a partnership of 110, hence putting tensions to the forehead of the opponent. Conway smashed 87(49) runs along with 5 sixes and 7 fours, delivering full-on entertainment to the audience.

DC collapses miserably

DC while chasing the target did not witness a good start, neither it ended with a good end. The team collapsed dramatically and none of its batsman was able to hold on the crease for long, hence the team could manage to score just 117 in 17.4 overs(all out)

Chances for Playoffs
Well, CSK need to work really hard to ensure their path to playoffs as the team had won just 4 matches so far(8 points) and even if it scores a victory in all the matches (excluding the possibilities of rain, which could also result in cancellation of a match sometimes), it holds mere chances of finishing off at third or fourth, the team also need to depend on the position of other team as well, as the game of NRR(Net Run Rate) is about to begin now.
