Match 5 CSK VS DC : DC’s young lad can’t stand against giant CSK

Toss – DC opt to bat; Bring in an extra spinner

IPL 2018 stat at Feroz Shah Kotla

Batting First: Won – 5, Lost – 2

Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan opens for DC.

4 overs: DC 35/0 (Shaw 24, Dhawan 9)

No Show from Shaw today!

As Shaw premeditates the pull Deepak Chahar follw him and cramps him for the room and ball only travels to the Watto at mid-wicket. Shaw goes for 24. Caption Shreyas Iyer comes in at 3.

Good to see teams using only 3 overseas players. I believe it is going to be a trend this year given overseas recruits will depart in the later half. That also means more local stars will shine this season

Powerplay up 43/1 after 6 overs

9 overs: 55/1 (Dhawan 22, Iyer 7)

Jaddu and Bhajji pa are bowling well here and batsmen are finding it difficult to score runs against them.

I guess 150/60 odd runs will be tough to chase on this dead pitch.

Tahir gets Iyer LBW!

Earlier tahir was smacked for quite a few runs but now he bowls a slider and quicker delivery, iyer was in the crease can’t get his bat down in time and gets PLUMB LBW. Rishab Pant comes in.

17 off the first over from DJ BRAVO

If you believe in superstition, the number 17 stands for KHATRA(danger)

Pant falls for 25 off 13

After hitting a six off Harbhajan’s last over, Pant attempts another unconventional pick-up short off his hip against Bravo. He holes out at deep square leg. Crucial breakthrough for CSK. Here’s comes Colin Ingram!

Yoooo! I guessed it right

It’s a danger for DELHI CAPITALS

DJ Bravo gets 2 wickets in 3 balls he balls on Ingram, who chips one straight to Raina at cover. Trouble now

DC fall down

If you’re thinking I’m talking about DC universe nope I’m not. It’s Delhi Capitals who have lost their way in the middle.

Jadeja absolutely fires one in that Keemo Paul has no clue about. The off-stump is flattened.

Champion gets another

DJ Bravo comes back to get Dhawan leading-edge one to square leg. End of a battling, but ultimately very important innings from Dhawan. 51 off 47. Could even be a match-winning effort on this one.

good comeback from Bravo. He went for 17 in the first over. Has given away only 7 in the next two and taken 3 wickets.

DC ends at 147

Rishab Pant’s wicket was the turning point of DC batting collapse. If he had stayed till the end it would have made a difference of 20/30 runs.

Does 147 look enough? You never know, this pitch gets worse.

But when you’re up against giant CSK you gotta take chances and set a mammoth total to defend.


Chase begins

Ambati Rayudu and Shane Watson opens for CSK

Ishant strikes

“Catch it baby was the cry” and Captain Shreyas Iyer takes the catch.

Rayudu dances down the track to tkae on ishant but smartly he bowls short of length ball of 140 KMPH and Rayudu chips it straight to the extra cover.Rayudu goes for 5. Suresh Raina comes in at 3. It’s 21/1.

51/1 after 5 overs

Stumping chance & Watto departs

Amit Mishra balls a flighted delivery wide of off-stump and Watson trise to heive but doesn’t connect. While trying to hit his back foot came out of the crease and Rishab Pant whips the bails in a flash. Watson gone for 44. Kedhar Jadhav comes in. It’s 73/2.

Ohh Raina Raina Raina! He’s walking

Mishra balls flighted delivery Raina tries to cut it for four but instead picks out the cunning Rishab Pant’s gloves. Raina goes for 30. MS Dhoni comes in. It’s 98/3.

Is that gonna change the momentum?

The equation is 43 runs required off 53 balls

Gabbar drops a tough chance of Kedhar Jadhav

You gotta take this types of catch if you have to be in the game.

You sure know catches win matches

2 required off 6 balls

It’s a piece of cake if you have dhoni on the strike.

Rabada will bowl the final over

First ball and Jadhav is gone. Didn’t quite reach and gets edge to the keeper. Jadhav gone for 27. DJ Bravo comes in. It’s 146/4

Dot dot and four!!

Whips it to the leg side and that’s the match CSK wins by 6 wickets.

Man of the match

Shane Watson for his quick knock of 44.
