Brilliant all-round display by Delhi Capitals help them tumble MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings by 44 runs. CSK started on a slow note chasing 176, losing both their openers inside the powerplay overs. The Delhi bowlers kept the pressure on CSK throughout their innings as they could only manage 131/7 at the end of 20 overs.

Batting first, DC were given a cracking start by Prithvi Shaw (64) and Shikhar Dhawan (35). It was Piyush Chawla (2/33) who gave CSK their first breakthroughs, as they applied the brakes on the scoring in the middle overs. Rishabh Pant (37*) shepherded the innings to the end, with Sam Curran (1/27) bowling some tight overs at the death.

So that's a wrap as CSK manage just 131/7 in 20 overs in response to Delhi Capitals' 175/3. 

Delhi Capitals win by 44 runs.

Icing on the cake!

Dhoni departs and well this doesn't affect the game much but it serves as an icing on the cake for Delhi Capitals. A slower and short delivery by Rabada, and Dhoni tries to pull it down the leg, gets a thick edge and Pant dives forward to complete the catch. He departs on 15. Meanwhile, Rabada also strikes in the final ball as Jadeja goes on 12.

Happy faces in DC camp

Chennai Super Kings need 49 runs in 6 balls. That's the equation. 

22:54 (IST)25 Sep 2020
CSK hope for a miracle!

55 from 12 balls, a little more for ask for. Well this is what happens if you bowl in the right areas from the beginning.

The party may be over for CSK

The party may be over for CSK as Kagiso Rabada wraps Du Plessis on 43 from 35 balls. A short of a length delivery, pretty wide from the batsman forcing him to reach for it. In the end, he gets an edge which settles into the hands of the wicketkeeper. CSK: 113/5 (17.2 overs)

22:39 (IST)25 Sep 2020
Wicket number 2 for Anrich Nortje

The pressure was building and CSK pay the price as Kedhar Jadhav goes after scoring 26 off 21 balls. Wicket number 2 for Anrich Nortje as he traps the batsman LBW but now we see the main man, MS Dhoni make his way to the middle. CSK 101/4 (16)

Fair Play Award!
22:28 (IST)25 Sep 2020
Kedhar Jadhav deals in boundaries

Kedhar Jadhav does try to put some pressure on Avesh Khan. He starts off with a boundary and then another one, finally manages to score 13 from his over. But CSK needs more off this. CSK 84/3 (14) | need 92 runs in 36 balls 

22:21 (IST)25 Sep 2020
Faf 'milestone' du Plessis
22:16 (IST)25 Sep 2020
Equation

Faf du Plessis: 23(21)  | Kedhar Jadhav: 7(10) 

CSK: 60/3 (12) | need 116 runs in 48 balls

Meanwhile, Shimron Hetmyer has missed a sitter, that too of Faf du Plessis. Will it eventually hurt him and his side? 

22:09 (IST)25 Sep 2020
CSK fans say, 'Oh no!'

Strageic time-out and then the wicket on the first ball. Ruturaj Gaikwad is the man who has to take the long walk back to the pavilion. An inside edge and Du Plessis was not interested in the single, but Gaikwad was already halfway down the pitch. Du Plessis sends him back but it's too late as Rishabh Pant grabs the ball and throws it towards Axar Patel, who breaks the stumps before Gaikwad could make it. CSK: 47/3 (10 overs)

21:58 (IST)25 Sep 2020
All eyes on Du Plessis!

Two over after powerplay and just seven runs come off it. Delhi are holding the grip in the contest, but with CSK's in-form batsman Faf du Plessis in the middle, we shouldn't count them out yet. CSK: 41/2 (8 overs)

21:56 (IST)25 Sep 2020
Impressed with Shreyas Iyer's captaincy

Someone is impressed with Shreyas Iyer's captaincy, and why shouldn't he be.

21:51 (IST)25 Sep 2020
Delhi rule powerplay!

Final ball of the powerplay and Nortje too gets his name registered on the wicket book. He sends Vijay packing on 10 as CSK reach 34/2 after 6 overs. It was a simple back of a length delivery just outside off and Vijay fails to time it properly as the ball flies straight to Rabada at mid-on. 

21:47 (IST)25 Sep 2020
Gabbar goes cool!

Meanwhile the Gabbar from Delhi goes cool. Just look at those shades!

21:41 (IST)25 Sep 2020
Gone!

Axar Patel provides Delhi with the first breakthrough as Shane Watson fails to capitalise on the lifeline, he was awarded moments ago. He departs after scoring 14 from 16 balls as CSK are batting on 23/1 after 4.2 overs. 

21:37 (IST)25 Sep 2020
What's on Shreyas Iyer's mind?

Started with Kagiso Rabada, then Axar, then Anrich Nortje and now Avesh Khan. Delhi Capitals have already used four different bowlers inside the first four overs. 

21:35 (IST)25 Sep 2020
Prithvi Shaw drops Shane Watson

Shane Watson survives as Prithvi Shaw fails to hold onto the ball. It was a strong whip by Watson and the ball flies straight to Shaw fielding at square leg,however, lucky for the batsman as the fielder fails to grab it. CSK: 10/0 (3 overs)

21:27 (IST)25 Sep 2020
An excellent start!

An excellent start by Rabada as just two runs come off it. Just maintained a tight length and the pace was uptight. And in a surprise move, Shreyas Iyer has handed the ball to Axar Patel, who joins Rabada from the other end.
