The match between the table toppers of this season CSK and DC was completely dominated by the Super Kings.

DC has won the toss and they have elected to bowl first. CSK had a very dull start to their innings. And after the wicket of Watson, the score was just 7-1 in 4 overs. They really needed someone to go on the DC bowlers and this it was CSK Vice Captain Raina who decided to shift the gears and was looking in great touch with the bat and made his 50th half-century in T20 cricket. Faf du Plessis had a decent knock of 39. Later the skipper Dhoni has stepped into the crease. After Raina wicket, Jadeja has stepped on to bat with the Captain. They had a good partnership. Both the batsman was batting at a strike rate of 200+. After an excellent knock of 44 in just 22 balls from Dhoni, CSK were able to put a defendable total of 179 on board. It was more than par score in Chennai. In order to chase down such total in Chennai was a tough challenge to DC batsman.

DC batsmen had a bad outing. Apart from the DC skipper Shreyas Iyer, who scored 44 runs and Dhawan with 19 runs, everyone in the team has scored runs in single digits and there was no major contribution any of the batsmen. There was no partnership’s in DC innings at all. And CSK bowlers had their day on the field by cleaning the DC batsman for a Nelson of 99.

M.S.Dhoni was awarded Man of the Match for his knock of 44 Runs and two stumpings and a Catch.

After this game, CSK has moved to the top of the table and DC moved down to 2nd place.
