IPL 2020 CSK vs DC Match Highlights: The 7th match of the 13th season of the Indian Premier League was played between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals i.e. CSK vs DC, in Dubai. In this match, Delhi Capitals defeats Chennai Super Kings by 44 runs. Also, they gained the top position in the points table, after winning their second consecutive match.

Batting first after losing the toss at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Delhi Capitals gave the Chennai Super Kings a target of 176 runs. In response, the Chennai team could not recover after falling the initial wicket and could reach 131 runs after losing 7 wickets in 20 overs.

Dhoni’s strategy and batting proved to be a flop. Faf Du Plessis scored the highest 43 runs for Chennai, Jadhav scored 26 and Dhoni scored just 15 runs. Watson could score only 14 runs. The man behind the Delhi Capitals victory was Prithvi Shaw, who scored 64 runs. Pant played 37 and Dhawan played innings of 35 runs. Rabada took 3 wickets for just 26 runs, Nortje took 2 wickets for 21 runs and Axar Patel got 1 wicket.

Delhi Capitals Batting Adventure

Chennai won the toss and called Delhi to bat. His bowlers kept the batsmen tied at the start but lost runs in the last, due to which Delhi managed to score 175 runs losing 3 wickets in 20 overs. Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan got a steady start for the Delhi team. Both scored 36 runs in the 6-over powerplay. Most runs came off Shaw’s bat.

After that, both scored fast and build a 90 runs partnership for the first wicket, in just 10 overs. However, in the very next over, Dhawan, in an attempt to play a sweep shot, fell to Piyush Chawla and got LBW. Dhawan scored 35 runs in 27 balls with the help of 3 fours and a six.

Rishabh Pant and captain Shreyas Iyer also shared a 58-run partnership for the third wicket. CSK got the third wicket in the form of Shreyas Iyer, who was dismissed by Sam Curran on a personal score of 26 runs. Dhoni caught his brilliant catch. Rishabh Pant and Marcus Stoinis remained unbeaten on 5 runs for Delhi.

Prithvi Shaw Studded A Fifty

Delhi did not lose any wickets in the six overs of the powerplay but scored only 36 runs. Chennai did not appeal a catch behind the wicket in the first over against Shaw when the ball went off his bat. Shaw took full advantage of it.

In the Powerplay, all four fours came out of his bat from Delhi while Dhawan was seen battling. Shaw continued to push the ball to the boundary line even further and completed his half-century off 35 balls. However, on a personal score of 64, he was stumped by Dhoni off Piyush Chawla.

After losing two consecutive wickets, the responsibility of increasing the run pace, in the middle overs, fell on Pant and Iyer. They both shared a 58-runs partnership.

After Shaw was dismissed in the 13th over, there were only seven fours. Out of these, five fours were planted by Pant. Curran’s 19th over was extremely valuable for Chennai. In this, he gave only 4 runs and caught Iyer behind the wicket.

Chennai’s Poor Start Ahead Of Big Score

Chennai Super Kings got off to a poor start to chase the target. They got their first blow in the form of Shane Watson. He was caught by Hetmyer off Axar Patel on a personal score of 14 runs. After this, Murali Vijay also returned to the pavilion after scoring 10 runs. He was caught by Rabada off Andrich Nortje Spell. By now the Chennai’s score was 34 runs for 2 wickets.

Chennai Lost Batting Control

CSK came under pressure after a slow start and losing opener wickets. It was expected that Dhoni would enter the top order, but this did not happen. Faf du Plessis landed at number three, while young Ruturaj Gaikwad came at number four. Gaikwad was expected to cash in on the chance, but it did not happen. He was run out by Axar on the precise throw of Pant. Gaikwad scored just 5 runs.

50 Partnership Between Faf And Kedar

After this, Kedar Jadhav, along with Faf du Plessis, took the team closer to 100 runs. However, both batsmen showed a lack of big shots and the recorded run rate reached beyond 18. When fast runs were required, Nortje dismissed Kedar Jadhav off LBW on the fourth ball of the 16th over. Jadhav scored 26 runs in 21 balls with the help of 3 fours. There was a 54-run partnership between him and du Plessis.

Faf Missed Fifty, Chennai Missed Victory

During this period, Faf, who held on one end, became the victim of Kagiso Rabada on the second ball of the 18th over. He scored 43 runs in 35 balls with the help of 4 fours. Now Chennai needed 63 runs from 16 balls to win. Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja made some good shots from here, but they could not manage to take the team to the desired goal. For Delhi, Rabada took 3, Nortje 2, and Axar Patel took 1 wicket.
