MS Dhoni had won the toss and he invited Delhi Capitals to bat first. However, the Rishabh Pant led team had gone to a flying start in the first half. Prithvi Shaw was looking very dangerous in the power play.
However, Shikhar Dhawan had gone out for a cheap seven-run knock. He was caught behind by MS Dhoni on the bowling of Josh Hazelwood. But the Prithvi Missile just kept on going like a literal missile.
Moreover, he brought his fifty in just 27 balls. But Prithvi Shaw was departed after a terrific catch from Faf du Plessis. But Shimron Hetmyer and Rishabh Pant somehow stabilised the whole innings. And they changed their gear in the last moments.
As a result of the star duo, Delhi Capitals reached a brilliant total of 172 runs in just twenty overs. This was going to be a tough task for Chennai Super Kings but the yellow army likes to chase.
Robin Uthappa and Ruturaj Gaikwad’s 100+ partnership helped CSK after Faf’s early dismissal. But the middle order completely failed once again. However, MS Dhoni arrived at a very crucial time. And he delivered a phenomenal knock of 18 runs in just 6 balls.
Moreover, this helped CSK seal the match. Everyone was happy to see a vintage knock from MS Dhoni. It was an emotional moment for everyone especially MS Dhoni fans.
