Unchanged Daredevils bowl; Ngidi debuts for CSK

Chennai Super Kings overpower Delhi Daredevils to return to the top of the IPL table Unchanged Daredevils bowl; Ngidi debuts for CSK
| 02 May, 2018, 01:57

Shane Watson, Rayudu, and Dhoni played blazing innings as Chennai Super Kings defeated Delhi Daredevils by 13 runs at the MCA Stadium in Pune on Monday.

Coming back to the CSK vs DD match highlights, leaking runs worse than a bucket with holes, Delhi's bowling proved to be their demise yet again. Rishabh Pant hit a fine 79 and Vijay Shankar added 51 to ensure that the Daredevils got closer to the target but it was not enough as they ended at 198 for five.

On the other hand, Delhi will be high on confidence under new skipper Shreyas Iyer, who led his side to a thumping 55-run victory over Kolkata Knight Riders. Watson, who got to his half-century off 25 balls, made 78 before he miscued an attempted big-hit off Amit Mishra and holed out to long-off.

The stage was set by the unsafe Shane Watson.


With five wins in seven matches, Super Kings are now placed second while Daredevils continue to scrap the bottom despite a morale-boosting 55-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders. Providing the flawless anchor to him was du Plessis who scored a run a ball 33 to ensure that Chennai got just the start they needed for. Dhoni made as many four changes in the playing eleven, bringing in du Plessis, Karn Sharma, Ngidi and young Kerala pacer KM Asif.

Opening bowler Trent Boult was also expensive going wicketless in his four overs and conceding 48 runs though he might have had Watson trapped leg before early on were it not for the faintest of edges.

It is not just the rate at which he scored which makes his innings outstanding but also the way in which he paced himself as he batted. The Daredevils lost five of their first six matches, their skipper Gautam Gambhir resigned and their bit-hitting internationals are yet to hit their straps after eight games. 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. Two major wickets gone Vijay Shankar struck in the 11th over of the match with du Plessis being caught by Boult while in the next over Suresh Raina was out for just one run in the next over. It showed the gap that there has to be filled between a Dhoni and a Pant, two names often taken together when it comes to Team India in the shortest format. Lungi Ngidi claimed the wicket, his first in the IPL. But the mood in the Chennai camp is so relaxed that they even seem to have a laugh at someone's mistake too. It was also Dhoni's second fastest fifty in the IPL. Apart from an ugly full toss off the last ball that Dhoni sent soaring into the stands, he bowled a neat mix of yorkers and speedy low full tosses to keep the batsman in check.
