Dhoni urges Super Kings bowlers to improve their death overs effort

Adjust Comment Print

It was a mild escape for the men in yellow as they registered a 13-run win against Delhi to surge it to the top of the league table. A large part of Delhi's troubles is the failure of big-ticket buy Glenn Maxwell with the bat, which makes the middle-order more brittle than it should be.

Vijay Shankar did score 54 not out off 31 balls against all expectations but in all fairness that only helped narrow the margin of defeat as Delhi finished their innings on 198/5 in 20 overs.

Dhoni (51* off 22) showed his devastating touch in the last five overs which produced 74 runs.

Shane Watson goes big in the IPL.

Mueller has dozens of questions for Trump in Russian Federation probe
Mueller also wants to know if Trump discussed with any campaign staff arranging a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. His lead lawyer, John Dowd, was trying to convince Mueller he did not need to interview Trump, the Times reported .

But they found a more formidable opponent in the Super Kings, who are playing their home games at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in the outskirts of Pune after being forced to move out of Chennai due to security concerns.

Dhoni and Rayudu were at their destructive best as the duo hammered Delhi bowlers towards the end of the innings and accumulated 79 runs in six overs.

Watson (78) came out of the gate in his usual aggressive fashion while opening partner Faf du Plessis (33) was the more conservative in their opening stand of 102.

For Chennai, K.M. Asif took two wickets while Lungi Ngidi and Ravindra Jadeja chipped in with one wicket each. While the rest of the bowlers struggled to contain the runs, Khan gave away just 28 runs from his four overs. Delhi went into the match with a win, but again the same set of errors crept in and now the campaign of Delhi reaching playoffs is looking very bleak and gloomy. With the explosive batting line up that CSK possess and their ability to chase down nearly anything, it is a given that teams winning the toss would like not to give them this advantage. If DD want to be fair then after Gautam Gambhir's departure, Maxwell also has to perform and can not stay in the team because of his reputation.

Delhi Daredevils 198-5 (Rishabh Pant 79, Vijay Shankar 54*, KM Asif 2-43) by 13 runs.

They say, successful teams generally have players enjoying each others' success. The captain got into the act with successive sixes off Boult, one over mid-wicket and other one from a bottom-handed jab over long on.

The Indian keeper didn't want a bar of non-striker Ambati Rayudu attempting a quick single with two balls left in Chennai's innings. He had to wait seven balls for his first boundary, though his next four balls would see 16 runs yielded, finishing in a blaze, his final five balls giving him another 18 runs and a third IPL half-century this season, all of which have remained unbeaten.
