Chennai Super Kings have won the toss and have opted to field Against Delhi Capitals
CSK skipper MS Dhoni has made the right choice to bowl first at Dubai – Because most of the matches in UAE have been won by the chasing side. DC openers Shaw and Dhawan have started the proceedings for their side. Shaw has played a terrific inning of 60 runs in just 34 balls. And with the help of an excellent partnership between Pant (51*) and Hetmyer (37) – DC has posted a challenging total of 172-5 in 20 overs.
Chennai batsmen had a tough task in front of them – In order to chase such totals at the bigger grounds, they needed few good partnerships. Gaikwad and Uthappa had an excellent partnership and build a solid foundation for their side. It was all down to the last overs where they needed 24 runs in 12 balls. It was Dhoni who took the steering from then on and fired the ball all around the park – After a long time, we could see a vintage MSD finishing the match in style.
It was the night of the CSK Win The Qualifier and they have won the game by 4 wickets against Delhi Capitals.
And after this loss, Delhi Capitals will play the Qualifier-2 against the winner of Eliminator at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
