What a fantastic nail-biting match it was today at Sharjah Cricket Stadium! Delhi Capitals beat Chennai Super Kings by 5 wickets. Shikar Dhawan was the star tonight with 101 off 58. After winning the toss CSK had elected themselves to be the first to bat. CSK started the game quite well by taking a wicket in the very first ball but the team from the Capital city was excellent.
After 20 Overs CSK had posted 179 on the scoreboard which was a good chasing score. Despite a brilliant start from Jadeja in the final over, Axar’s three sixes sealed the deal for Delhi. A heavy blow from Chennai yet another loss. It was important for Chennai to take the wicket of Dhawan but was not able to. With this win, Delhi climbs to the top of the table while Chennai secures the 6th position.
Delhi relied completely on Dhawan and he did not fail to keep the expectation of his team. Dhawan’s stupendous show paved Delhi’s way to win the match. Chennai tried hard to take wickets but failed. Nevertheless outstanding performance from Chennai. Shikar Dhawan was declared Man of the Match. That’s it for the day. Done and dusted with Delhi defeating Chennai.
