IPL 2019: Chennai Super Kings condemn Delhi Capitals to defeat in first home game

Delhi Capitals set Chennai Super Kings a target of 148 to chase. While the latter took it to the last over, CSK hardly ever looked like they were behind in the chase.

Chennai Super Kings recorded their second win of the season by beating Delhi Capitals by six wickets in what was the latter's first home match of the season. Chasing a target of 148, CSK hardly looked like they were going to fluff it, although they took it down the last over largely due to MS Dhoni's innings. Delhi Capitals looked primed for a big total when they were 118/2 at the end of the 15th over but Dwayne Bravo's introduction was enough for CSK put the breaks on their innings. (PTI Photo)

Dwayne Bravo's re-introduction turned things around in CSK's favour. The Trinidadian ended his innings with three wickets to his name, two of which were those of Dhawan and Colin Ingram. (IPL Photo)

CSK started the chase well. Shane Watson played a knock of 51 off 47 balls in which he did everything from hitting sixes to picking fights with Ishant Sharma....(PTI Photo)

... and Kagiso Rabada. The three players however burried an ill feeling by shaking hands at the end of the match with Ricky Ponting acting as peacemaker between Watson and Rabada. (PTI Photo)

After Watson's dismissal Suresh Raina and Kedar Jadhav all but ensured that CSK seal the match with well over five overs to spare. (PTI Photo)

However, after Raina's dismissal, Dhoni slowed things down in the chase. CSK finally won the match when Dwayne Bravo hit a four off the third ball of the last over. (PTI Photo)
