Check out the full scorecard and commentary of the match between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals being played at Dr. D.Y.Patil Stadium Academy, Navi Mumbai.
Delhi’s one win one loss streak continues here as well. Pant and Army were once again deprived of two consecutive victories. The toss is going in the interest of the team but the result is not going in their favor. Along with bowling, the batting also seems to be a complete flop of this team. Also, in today’s run chase, a big collapse which has been seen has drowned Delhi. On the other hand, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Kanway were heroes in the first innings for Chennai, in this second innings a superhero named Moeen Ali appeared.
Chennai beat Delhi by 91 runs!! This will be the biggest defeat for any team this season in terms of runs. Delhi team scattered like a pack of cards. The players of Chennai today made him eat all four. MS Dhoni, as soon as this player took over the command of the team, one victory after the other seems to be going to the account of the Yellow Army. Delhi looks utterly despondent, now here.
