IPL 2018, DD vs CSK Match 52: Delhi Daredevils vs Chennai Super Kings in Indian Premier League from Delhi

23:41 (IST)18 May 2018
DD win

Delhi Daredevils beat Chennai Super Kings by 34 runs. here's what MS Dhoni has to say. "I think the wicket slightly got more difficult in the second half. I think it was evident, nobody was middling it well in our innings. Wicket kept getting slower and slower. Their bowlers also bowled really well. Difficult to predict how the wicket behaves, sometimes it behaves well and sometimes it turns like this. I think if we batted better, we needed someone to score those extra 15-20 runs. (On the loss) Specially looking at the wicket, not that fussed. Have to be practical looking at the wicket as long as we know where we went wrong. Something going wrong is a part and parcel but if you know the reason why it went wrong, it becomes easier to come back from that. We know the reasons and what we could have done slightly different. Overall, yes, slightly disappointed with the loss but I don't think we could have done much."

That's all from this match from our side.

IPL 2018 Live DD vs CSK: It has been a rather strange season for the Delhi Daredevils. On the one hand, they have had a miserable win-loss ratio this season - they have won just three of the 12 matches they have played thus far - and will finish the season as wooden spooners once again. On the other hand, they have found a group of young batsmen in Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and Prithvi Shaw around whom they can build a team in the future. For now, it this and the next game serve little purpose other than restoring some pride.
