And that's it from us. This loss for CSK has thrown things wide open again as far as who qualifies in what position is concerned for the IPL 2018 playoffs. Join us again tomorrow for two crucial clashes that will decide which of RR, RCB or KKR join CSK and SRH in the playoffs.
Harshal Patel, Man of the Match: "I think bowling was the more difficult skill on the pitch, considering how the ground and pitch are, and especially with the dew coming into play in the latter part of the innings. We stuck to our plans and executed really well. It's all about consistency (4-over spells), so they are more important than batting cameos. 

"I was watching Bravo really well, and I know he is good at bowling slower balls, so I just backed myself to not get deceived. I have been studying my own game really well. It was about not trying to do anything out of my capabilities and I'm glad I could execute my skills well today."
Shreyas Iyer: "We were craving for this victory, and coming against one of the best teams is satisfying. All departments did well and lived up to the expectations. It wasn't easy to bat on this wicket, and Harshal coming at number 7 in that last over was amazing. That performance was not expected and that just goes to show what he is here for. That last over played a major role in getting us to 162. 

"We were never lacking in preparation from the beginning of the tournament, it's just that we were not able to execute what we had planned in the nets and all the three departments weren't clicking together, which happened today and in all the games that we won."
Sandeep Lamichhane: "It was slightly skiddy wicket and I have to thank each and every supporter who came and supported us. The way every player contributed in this game, I think that helped me a lot. The way Harshal and Vijay finished towards the end, it was something like that which helped me to bowl in the right areas. 

"I think they were well set at that moment (Raina and Dhoni in the middle) and I was trying to bowl my best ball and suddenly we got the wicket we wanted and the game changed from there. It happens sometimes (Pant's drop catch). You hold onto great catches and you drop some and I think everyone contributed well. Enjoying myself. I want to thank everyone especially everyone back in Nepal. I want to thank IPL for giving me a chance and also want to thank DD."
MS Dhoni: "Wicket got more difficult in the second half. Nobody was middling it, the bowlers bowled well. Difficult to predict how this pitch will behave. You have to be very practical about why something went wrong. We know the reasons. It's important not to look at the points table. The middle order can also get a partnership. Anyone can get an opportunity. Need to be mentally prepared, more than physical. You can give 100 different plans to the bowlers, but sometimes you have to shuffle the bowlers."
CSK started off sedately, Shane Watson didn't get going at all. Amidst that, Ambati Rayudu was absolutely sublime again, but there was absolutely nothing around him. Suresh Raina didn't find the middle of his bat, Sam Billings was flummoxed by the leg-spin, but the death knell for CSK was that their skipper MS Dhoni could not pull out one of those other finishes, as he finished with 17 off 24. 

Harshal Patel's tight spell followed his crucial contribution with the bat, which propelled them to 160+, and he should be a frontrunner to pocket the Man of the Match award 

Amit Mishra and Sandeep Lamichhane bowled magnificently in the middle overs, as Delhi got themselves their 4th win. 
19.6 Boult to Jadeja, 1 run, Delhi Daredevils win by 34 runs! Coming to the ball, it was a length ball and Jadeja could only stroke it down to long on for a single. 
19.5 Boult to Chahar, 1 run, slower ball on Chahar's pads, looks to ramp it over fine leg but misses and the batsmen cross over for a single as the ball lobs onto the leg side
19.4 Boult to Chahar, Not given a wide! Boult misses his radar but he's got away with that one
19.3 Boult to Jadeja, 1 run, again looks for the maximum, has to settle with a single. 
19.2 Boult to Bravo, OUT! Bravo now bites the dust. Slower length ball angling into Bravo who looks for his trademark inside out shot, only manages to send it high up in the air as Vijay Shankar takes his second second catch. End of a treacherous day for Bravo. He will be asking for pills to forget this day as soon as he possibly can
19.1 Boult to Jadeja, 1 run, full toss spearing into the stumps, Jadeja gets some bat to send it as far as deep square leg
CSK need 39 off the last over. The game is over, but in the context of their season, they must look to reduce the quantum of loss. 
Over 19 CSK: 124/5(RR 6.53) Bowler: H Patel Sum..: 6 2 1 1 . lb
18.6 Harshal Patel to Jadeja, quicker delivery on the pads, Jadeja misses and the ball rolls away onto the offside after hitting the thigh pad
18.5 Harshal Patel to Jadeja, slower and far from Jadeja who looks to pull it away but misses in the end. 
18.4 Harshal Patel to Bravo, 1 run, short and way outside off without literally any pace on it, Bravo pulls it to mid wicket for a solitary run
18.3 Harshal Patel to Jadeja, short and wide, Jadeja middles it but yet again, straight to the man at point. 
18.2 Harshal Patel to Jadeja, 2 runs, Jadeja nudges it to fine leg and a misfield gives him two more
18.1 Harshal Patel to Jadeja, SIX! Much needed for CSK! Slightly overpitched from Patel, Jadeja swings hard and it goes up very very high and goes over the boundary
CSK need 50 off the last two overs. Even Delhi cannot bottle this situation anymore
Over 18 CSK: 113/5(RR 6.28) Bowler: T Boult Sum..: 1 . . 3 1 W
17.6 Boult to Dhoni, OUT! Final nail in the coffin? Full ball and on the stumps, Dhoni looks to smash it over long on but does not get enough on that, Iyer takes a brilliant tumbling catch at long on. End of Dhoni's worst knock of this IPL thus far, the ball really didn't strike the middle of his bat
17.5 Boult to Jadeja, 1 run, angling into Jadeja who middles it straight to the man at deep square leg
17.4 Boult to Dhoni, 3 runs, drama, drama and more drama! Dhoni is beaten for pace and cannot time his pull, they also collect two runs on the throw
17.3 Boult to Dhoni, no run, excellent wide yorker from Boult, no width on offer for Dhoni and two dot balls in a row. That's gold dust. 
17.2 Boult to Dhoni, short and pace off the ball, Dhoni looks for the almighty heave but has no pace to work with, under-edges it to Pant
17.1 Boult to Jadeja, 1 run, absolutely smashed from Jadeja but straight to the man at deep midwicket
Over 17 CSK: 108/4(RR 6.35) Bowler: H Patel Sum..: . 1 . . 1 1
16.6 Harshal Patel to Jadeja, 1 run, what happened there? Jadeja looked for the big slog but got a big edge on that which lobbed towards point, Avesh Khan ran in but was not interested in taking the catch
