IPL 2021, CSK vs DC Highlights: Delhi Capitals (DC) beat Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their first match of the tournament by seven wickets with eight balls to spare. DC chased down a total of 189 on the back of the fifties from Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw. The openers put on a partnership of 138. Shaw scored 72 whereas Dhawan scored 85. In the end, skipper Pant finished the match in style. This was DC’s highest successful run chase against CSK in the history of IPL.

Earlier Rishabh Pant won the toss against CSK and elected to field first at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. DC fast bowlers started off well with the new ball getting rid of Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad. However, Suresh Raina played like his usual self in the comeback match scoring a half-century. Moeen Ali did well on his CSK debut as well scoring 36 batting at No.3. CSK lost a few wickets in the middle overs but they bat deep. Unfortunately for CSK, Raina fell victim to a mix-up with Ravindra Jadeja as he got run out for 54. But, Jadeja and Sam Curran ensured that CSK finish well and their 51-run partnership for the seventh wicket helped the team post a total of 188/7. Avesh Khan was the pick of the bowlers for DC as he picked two wickets for 23 runs in his four overs including Du Plessis and MS Dhoni.

IPL 2021, CSK vs DC Highlights:

23:17 (IST)10 Apr 2021
History made at Wankhede

This is DC's highest successful run chase against CSK. Also, this is the third-highest successful run chase against MS Dhoni's side. 

23:12 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Pant finishes in style

Rishabh Pant hits it towards deep midwicket and finishes with a boundary. Pant turns out to be the better captain in this encounter against MS Dhoni's side. DC beat CSK with 8 balls to spare. The early finish will help them in the long run when net run rate comes into play. DC 190/3 after 18.4 overs

23:09 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Stoinis could not finish in style

Shardul Thakur bowls the penultimate over of the innings. Stoinis flicks the ball off his pads for a boundary. He follows it up with a loopy full toss. Stoinis starts to finish in style but finds the man in the deep. DC 186/3 after 18.3 overs

23:07 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Bravo could not finish well

Dwayne Bravo's last over turns out to be his most expensive over. It is all but over for CSK now. Marcus Stoinis hammers the ball past long off for a boundary to finish the over, 10 runs from it. DC 182/2 after 18 overs

23:00 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Stoinis promoted

Marcus Stoinis promoted ahead of Ajinkya Rahane. Stoinis gets a boundary off the second ball he faces. Shardul Thakur errs and bowls a wide delivery. DC need just 17 runs from 18 deliveries now. DC 172/2 after 17 overs

22:57 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Dhawan departs for 85

Shardul Thakur brought back into the attack once again. He has been expensive tonight. Shikhar Dhawan has turned out to be too good for Thakur. He is playing proper cricket shots and unorthodox shots to disrupt his line and length. Thakur finally manages to get the better of Dhawan. A fuller delivery deceives the opener. He departs for 85 but the required run rate is just above 6 now. DC 167/2 after 16.3 overs

22:52 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Bravo does well

Dwayne Bravo has been the pick of the bowlers for CSK tonight. Shikhar Dhawan gets a boundary but still seven runs from the over. Meanwhile, Dhawan has surpassed Virat Kohli to score the most runs against CSK. Delhi still need 31 runs from 24 balls. Who will MS Dhoni trust to bowl the final four overs? DC 158/1 after 16 overs

22:45 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Another expensive Chahar over

Shikhar Dhawan gets across and gets a boundary off the first ball of Deepak Chahar's over. With that boundary, Dhawan becomes the first batsman to hit 600 fours in IPL. Chahar has been far from impressive tonight. Rishabh Pant gets off the mark with a boundary. 12 runs from Chahar's final over. DC 151/1 after 15 overs

22:40 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Shaw falls for 72

Prithvi Shaw runs out of second chances as this time Moeen Ali completes an easy catch. Dwayne Bravo's slower wide delivery does the trick as Shaw could not get the timing on that one. The opener falls for 72. Rishabh Pant promotes himself up the order ahead of Ajinkya Rahane. Will this wicket help CSK make a comeback in this game? DC still need 50 off the last six overs. DC 139/1 after 14 overs

22:32 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Shaw into 70s

Moeen Ali brought back into the attack and he bowls a no ball that went over Shikhar Dhawan's head. Just a single off the free hit delivery. CSK need a batting collapse here if they want to win this match. But it seems like it won't happen. Shaw pulls and gets another maximum. Another boundary from the over and Shaw is in his 70s now. The required run rate is now well below 8 runs per over. DC 136/0 after 13 overs

22:29 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Bravo into the attack

Dwayne Bravo into the attack and Shikhar Dhawan gets a boundary off the second ball of the over. A lot will depend on how Bravo bowls if CSK are to make a comeback in this match. 8 runs from Bravo's first over. DC 121/0 after 12 overs

22:22 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Dhawan gets to fifty!

This is a nightmare for CSK fans. Shikhar Dhawan gets to his half-century from 35 balls. Shardul Thakur has been unimpressive so far. This duo is playing fearlessly making this run chase look like a cakewalk. 14 runs from the over. 

22:16 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Shaw reaches 50

Now, Shikhar Dhawan hits Moeen Ali for a maximum. CSK need a wicket and they need it now. Prithvi Shaw goes big too but gets another lifeline as Ruturaj Gaikwad drops one in the deep. Nothing going the CSK way for now. Shaw gets to his 7th IPL fifty with a boundary off 27 deliveries. DC 99/0 after 10 overs

22:14 (IST)10 Apr 2021
More headache for Dhoni

Prithvi Shaw finds a way. CSK were trying to get through the overs with spinners and minimum damage but Shaw takes on Jadeja and hits him for a six over long on. The youngster is nearing his 7th IPL fifty. DC 86/0 after 9 overs

22:08 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Shaw gets a lifeline

DROPPED! Prithvi Shaw gets a lifeline as substitute fielder Mitchell Santner gets confused running in from long on and drops the catch. Moeen Ali does well as DC manage to get just five singles from it. Two good overs from the spinners here. DC 75/0 after 8 overs

22:05 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Jadeja slows down scoring rate

Just what the doctor ordered for CSK after the strategic timeout. Ravindra Jadeja bowls an over with just five singles from it. DC would not mind that for now as they want the partnership to continue. They are still scoring at 10 runs per over. DC 70/0 after 7 overs

22:00 (IST)10 Apr 2021
End of powerplay

Not too much damage done in the final over of the powerplay overs. 7 runs from Deepak Chahar's third over. Meanwhile, Prithvi Shaw is currently batting at a strike rate of 200. At this point, DC look favourites to win the game. It will be upto how spinners operate in the middle overs. DC 65/0 after 6 overs

21:53 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Thakur takes a beating

Shikhar Dhawan is toying with the field. Shardul Thakur gets hit for a boundary off the second ball of the over. On the other hand, Prithvi Shaw is timing the ball perfectly, carrying on his Vijay Hazare Trophy form. Three consecutive boundaries for Shaw. The two DC openers are making the full use of these powerplay overs. DC 58/0 after 5 overs

21:48 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Dhawan smashes Curran

Shikhar Dhawan looks in excellent touch tonight. Dhawan is not overhitting the ball and it showed in the boundary off his pads and a loft over Sam Curran's head. Prithvi Shaw joins the party as well and hits him through the covers for a boundary. 17 runs from the over. DC 41/0 after 4 overs

21:42 (IST)10 Apr 2021
Shaw goes big

Prithvi Shaw hits Deepak Chahar for the first six of the innings. Shaw has had a positive approach against his nemesis tonight. The slips are out now and every fielder on the offside is on the edge of the 30-yard circle. 8 runs from Chahar's second over. DC 24/0 after 3 overs
