That's all from this game at the Feroz Shah Kotla. Much to cheer about for the CSK fans as they register yet another convincing victory. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. The action now moves to Kolkata, where KKR host the KXIP tomorrow. Do join us for live action.
Shane Watson: The wicket here was much better than the one back in Chennai. I won't be able to bowl much this season. At this point of time, I'm staying away from bowling and trying to keep myself fit for batting.
MS Dhoni: Our bowlers did a very good job to restrict them to below 150.  Our batters like a bit of pace and we look a slightly better side when that happens. Apart from losing Ngidi early in the tournament, we are well covered in all the areas. However, I wouldn't say that we are a very good fielding side. We need to accept that fact. Overall, I'm very happy with how we have been going about but there still remain plenty of areas that need to be worked on.
Shreyas Iyer: The pitch was tought to bat on for the new batsmen. I usually don't have problems starting off against the spinners but the case was different today. Even our best batsman, Rishabh Pant, found the going tough in the middle. We expected the wicket to get slower as the game progresses and that's the reason why I chose to bat first. We were 10-15 runs short. There's still a long way to go in this tournament and there are lots of positives to be taken away from this game.
In the hindsight, the last five overs of Delhi's innings, where they managed to score just 29 runs, stand out as one of the defining factors of the game. A good win for CSK as they continue to hold the wood over the Delhi based franchise.
While Watson set the tone with his blistering knock, Jadhav and Dhoni built a crucial partnership towards the end to power the visitors home. On the other hand, it was a mixed bag for the Delhi bowlers. While the spinners did a decent job, the pacers went for runs. 
The CSK dugout breaks into celebrations as a couple of fervent fans hurl on to the ground to showcase their love for MSD (turning into a common sight nowadays, isn't it?)
That's the match. Bravo brings out his trademark "Nataraja" shot to pick a boundary and finish the honours.
19.4 FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Dwayne Bravo. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs.
19.3 Kagiso Rabada to Dwayne Bravo. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Pant.
19.2 Kagiso Rabada to Dwayne Bravo. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Pant.
A bit of an anti-climax there as Jadhav departs with CSK needing just two runs to sail home.
19.1 OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Kedar Jadhav. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, top edge to wicketkeeper, by Pant.
Over 19 CSK: 146/3(RR 7.68) Bowler: A Mishra Sum..: . 1 1 1 6 .
18.6 Amit Mishra to MS Dhoni. Leg spinner back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Patel.
But don't worry. That's not the case here. It's MSD in the house and he clubs the leg-spinner straight down the ground for a mighty six. CSK just need to complete the formalities now.
18.5 SIX! Amit Mishra to MS Dhoni. Slider half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs.
8 runs to get off 8 balls. These ones can get a lot trickier than we expect. Remember the recent cliffhanger between South Africa and Sri Lanka?
18.4 Amit Mishra to Kedar Jadhav. Slider length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Ingram.
18.3 Amit Mishra to MS Dhoni. Slider length ball, outside off stump on the back foot driving, in the air uncontrolled to long off for 1 run, fielded by Dhawan.
18.2 Amit Mishra to Kedar Jadhav. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Ingram.
18.1 Amit Mishra to Kedar Jadhav. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Mishra.
11 required of the final two overs. Will CSK take it to the final over or will it be all over in the 19th? What do you think?
Over 18 CSK: 137/3(RR 7.61) Bowler: K Paul Sum..: 2 1 1 1wd . 4 2
17.6 Keemo Paul to MS Dhoni. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to extra cover for 2 runs, fielded by Shaw.
And just when things were getting a bit tight for the men in yellow, Dhoni blasts one off the covers to bring the equation back in CSK's favour.
17.5 FOUR! Keemo Paul to MS Dhoni. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Slapped for four, MSD has this chase at his command.
17.4 Keemo Paul to MS Dhoni. Slower ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Pant.
17.4 Wide Keemo Paul to MS Dhoni. Slower length ball, wide outside off stump on the back foot Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Pant.
With these two still at the crease, CSK still hold the edge in the chase.
