Prithvi Shaw has been adjudged as the man of the match for his knock of 64 runs in 43 balls 
Delhi Capitals win by 44 runs

CSK
were looking a bit rusty in the start., with their openers not getting the starts they wanted. They started off with flurry of singles in the first half of the powerplay. Shane Watson started off well but after hitting a six, but soon fell short after the impetus. Murali Vijay followed suit, looking to hit a big shot. Faf du Plessis (43 runs in 26 balls) tried to steady the ship for CSK. Gaikwad came in and walked back immediately without making much of an impact. Faf found an able ally in Kedar Jadhav (26 runs in 21 balls)and stringed a partnership before Jadhav was caught plumb in front of the sticks. MS Dhoni (15 runs in 12 balls)came in the latter part of the chase but was left with too much to with the bat as DC capitalised on the situation and emerged victorious tonight.

DC
will be happy with the way they contained CSK in the powerplay. All their bowlers kept bowling the good lines and lengths and kept the CSK batters in check. They did no wrong with the ball and kept CSK under the pump and were rewarded well for their bowling. Kagiso Rabada (3/26 in 4 overs) and Anrich Nortje (2/21 in 4 overs) troubled the experienced pros at CSK with their pace while the spin of Axar Patel (1/18 in 4 overs) and Amit Mishra kept them at bay and didn't allow the batsmen to score freely.

CSK
will not take this loss lightly and will go back to the drawing board to make improvements and comeback harder. A lot of questions will be asked to CSK with regards to their recent performances.

Delhi Capitals
have won both their opening games for the first time since 2010 and will look to hold onto the brilliant start they are off to in the tournament and move on to complete Iyer's ambition of winning all the games in the league.
Over 20 | Summary: 2 1 W 0 1 W Bowler: Kagiso Rabada 131/7
19.6 Kagiso Rabada to Ravindra Jadeja, WICKET! It had to end this way as Jadeja cuts one straight to the man at point and hands Rabada his third wicket! Big win for DC as they beat CSK quite comprehensively!
19.5 Kagiso Rabada to Sam Curran, length ball on the pads, Curran tucks it away to the leg-side for a single
19.4 Kagiso Rabada to Sam Curran, back of a length delivery outside off, Curran punches it on the back foot past Rabada for no runs!
19.3 Kagiso Rabada to MS Dhoni, WICKET! Dhoni has to depart here! A short ball from Rabada and Dhoni gets an edge on an attempted pull shot to the keeper, who makes no mistake! Shreyas Iyer is all smiles here! Looks to finish on a high there and gets a thick edge which travels to Rishabh Pant behind the sticks
19.2 Kagiso Rabada to Ravindra Jadeja, a slower ball on the leg-stump, Jadeja makes room and cuts it to the off-side for a single
19.1 Kagiso Rabada to Ravindra Jadeja, a full ball on the stumps, Jadeja chips it over the mid-on fielder and comes around for another brace!
Good over from Nortje there as he brings DC to the brink of their victory. Didn't allow the dangerous Dhoni to free his arms and send the swashbuckling hits into the stands and kept bowling the yorkers and the spicy bouncers. CSK fans will have a hard time sleeping well tonight.

18.4 Anrich Nortje to MS Dhoni, another slower ball from Nortje, Dhoni manages to mistime a pull shot towards midwicket but for just a single
18.3 Anrich Nortje to MS Dhoni, a slower ball outside off, Dhoni is unable to get it away and plays it back to the bowler
18.2 Anrich Nortje to Ravindra Jadeja, a short ball from Nortje which Jadeja manages to glove for a single. This is not helping CSK's cause one bit!
