Shikhar Dhawan has been adjudged the man of the match award for his stellar hundred off 57 deliveries
Delhi Capitals win by 5 wickets.

Imagine being 2 down in the first four overs of the powerplay and then rising back and winning the match. Seems impossible, doesn't it ? Well that's what happened in today's match. DC lost Rahane and Shaw in teh powerplay with Deepak Chahar making things difficult for DC in the powerplay. Dhawan prodded along in the powerplay and saw the end of Chahar after the powerplay. Dhawan began changing gears after the powerplay finding gaps and getting reprives again. Dhawan had change of partners with Iyer, Stoinis, Carey and Axar with Axar finishing off in style with a maximum. Dhawan hit is maiden IPL hundred and made it a night to remember to DC and its fans

CSK were in total control of the match here but lost it toward the end. Deepak Chahar was brilliant with the new ball and swung it viciously in and out, accounting for the young Shaw and the seasoned Rahane. Dwayne Bravo worked magic in his slower balls and accounted for the wicket for DC captain Shreyas Iyer. Thakur was brilliant in the middle overs and accounted for the wicket of the hard hitting Aussie Stoinis. Carey to tried hard to get things underway, but his innings was cut short in the end by the ever so talented Sam Curran. Karn Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja had an outing to forget as they were carted away for plenty. Also, CSK's butter fingers, which dropped Dhawan 4 times, was they main cause for their let down and CSK's loss.

With this victory and a majestic 100 from the Gabbar Dhawan, DC move to the top of the table. They will face and upbeat Kings XI Punjab who look to outscore every opponent and make their way to the playoffs.

CSK will have a hard time gulping this loss down their throats. They were so close, but yet so far as they magic willow of Dhawan had the wood over CSK in their win. CSK will need to win every match from here on to qualify into the playoffs and will face the Rajasthan Royals, who too are coming off back to back close drubbings 
19.5 Ravindra Jadeja to Axar Patel, SIX! That's it! Round-arm delivery, but it is in the slot. Axar Patel launches it out of the ground to end the game in style! Axar hits it high and handsome and its good night on todays match and CSK's dream of qualifying for the play off. A lucky kid on the streets of Sharjah will take home the winning ball tonight! 
19.4 Ravindra Jadeja to Axar Patel, length ball on the stumps, hits it away on the on-side between the fielders at deep square leg and deep mid-wicket. They scamper through for a second
19.3 Ravindra Jadeja to Axar Patel, SIX MORE! Full outside the off-stump, he goes over the extra cover this time. Gets over the fence comfortably.. Axar Patel is on beast mode on here. Smashes 2 in 2 here and gets it down to 3 runs in the last 3 balls
19.2 Ravindra Jadeja to Axar Patel, SIX! It is outside the off-stump, but it is on a length. Axar gets across and mows it over the mid-wicket. Shuffles inside the crease and swats it hard for a huge maximum out of the ground for a maximum.
19.1 Ravindra Jadeja to Shikhar Dhawan, quick length ball, swings and gets an inside edge to deep square leg
19.1 Ravindra Jadeja to Shikhar Dhawan, full and wide flirting with the tramline. Umpire calls it a wide
Over: 19 | Summary: W 0 1w 1 1 0 1 Bowler: Sam Curran Score: 163/5
Dhawan gets to his maiden IPL hundred there, but the match is not yet done. DC need 17 runs in the last 6 balls of the innings. Stay with us as we take you through to the final balls of the innings
18.6 Sam Curran to Shikhar Dhawan, full ball outside the off-stump, tries to hit it but doesn't get the elevation. Falls well short of the fielder at long-off. And that's the maiden IPL CENTURY for Dhawan! But he has still some job left here! And after 4 drops and 2 missed run outs, Dhawan achieves what will be his first hundred in Dream11 IPL. Good innings from the southpaw but the job is not yet done for him and DC. 
18.5 Sam Curran to Shikhar Dhawan, OUT! But Dhawan REVIEWS straightaway! Wide yorker once again, he moves across and tries to sweep but gets beaten on the inside half!

Ball is close to the bat. Flatline when the ball passes the bat. Dhawan survives!
18.4 Sam Curran to Axar Patel, wide and right in the blockhole, he digs it out to deep point and gets a single
18.3 Sam Curran to Shikhar Dhawan, full and wide, drilled to sweeper cover and takes a single. Dhawan on 99 now, shy of a 100 here
18.3 Sam Curran to Shikhar Dhawan, he was looking for the off-side but gets it too wide. Has to reload that one
18.2 Sam Curran to Shikhar Dhawan, nails the wide yorker, gets the under edge to Dhoni behind the stumps
18.1 Sam Curran to Alex Carey, OUT! Low full toss from Curran, he gets no timing on that, just lobs up in the air to long-on and du Plessis is not dropping that. Things are getting really interesting here at Sharjah! A low full toss from Curran there and Carey, in a view to finish things of early, perishes playing a big shot. He departs for 4 and Axar Patel will walk in now.
Really good fielding on display from the CSK fielders. They trimming down the twos by the couple and are making them struggle to even get a boundary. Shardul Thakur bowled a good over under pressure and will hope that the other bowlers will follow it up with stupendous efforts. With a boundary off the final ball of the over, Dhawan is just 2 shy of his maiden IPL 100
Over: 18 | Summary: 0 1 2 1 1 4 Bowler: Shardul Thakur Score: 159/4
