Chennai Super Kings beat Delhi Capitals by six wickets in match five of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Tuesday. In a low-scoring encounter on a sluggish surface at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi batted first and posted a sub-par 147/6. In reply, CSK were always in control of the game as Shane Watson (44 off 26 balls) and Suresh Raina (30 off 16 balls) set up the platform for an easy chase. However, the defending champions took the match down to the last over, courtesy of some slow batting by MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav before Dwayne Bravo hit the winning runs.
Here are some reactions to the game:

I find MSD and Kedar Jadhav a fascinating ‘jodi’. Both unorthodox, but have the chemistry to work superbly in tandem. Should be CSK’s match unless, for some reason, both fall quickly from here
