Winning the toss, CSK put Delhi to bat first. Although the DC openers started well, CSK bowlers came back to the game. They picked the wickets of Shreyas Iyer and Shikhar Dhawan in a short time. DC’s tactic of promoting Axar Patel did not work and in the end, it was Rishabh Pant and Shimron Hetmyer who stitched a matured partnership to help the side post a total of 172 runs.

CSK were under pressure early with the wicket of Faf du Plessis. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Robin Uthappa shared a crucial partnership that set the game up for the team. However, after Uthappa got out, a series of wickets fell and CSK was under pressure. In the end, MS Dhoni produced a six-ball 18-run knock which helped his team cross the line.

In fact, they were also the first team that had qualified for the playoffs. To top it all, MS Dhoni produced an excellent finish which satisfied the fans as well.
