In an easy match played at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai, CSK seemed to be in its form after a long time. The team though struggling at bottom refused to surrender before the season ends and deliver every possible effort till the last.
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.
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)
