The Chennai Super Kings (CSK) won their match against the Delhi Capitals (DC) by 27 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. The match was held at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on a Wednesday. CSK’s MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja played really well in the 19th over, helping their team reach a total score of 167 runs with 8 wickets lost. Matheesha Pathirana from CSK also played a big role in the win by taking three wickets. Deepak Chahar took two wickets and Jadeja took another one.
For Delhi Capitals, Rilee Rossouw was the top scorer with 35 runs from 37 balls. Manish Pandey also contributed with 27 runs from 29 balls. When Delhi Capitals began their chase of the 167-run target set by CSK, they got off to a shaky start. David Warner was dismissed in the first over of their innings without scoring, and Phil Salt was out for 17 in the third over. Mitchell Marsh was run out soon after for just 5 runs.
Rossouw and Pandey then came together and hit 15 runs off Chahar, but their partnership ended when Pandey was dismissed by Pathirana. Rossouw was later out after scoring 35, and Axar Patel’s quick-fire innings also ended soon after. Lalit Yadav hit some late boundaries, but they weren’t enough to get Delhi Capitals over the line.
Earlier in the match, Dhoni and Jadeja’s powerful hitting in the 19th over had helped CSK to their final score of 167/8. This was despite a good start from Delhi Capitals’ bowlers, with Khaleel Ahmed only conceding four runs in the first over. However, CSK’s Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway fought back in the next over, hitting 16 runs off Ishant Sharma.
Despite losing Conway and Gaikwad early, CSK kept the score moving. Moeen Ali and Ajinkya Rahane built a partnership, but both were dismissed before they could make a big score. Ambati Rayudu and Shivam Dube then tried to build another partnership, but Dube was dismissed for 25. Rayudu was out soon after, and it was left to Dhoni and Jadeja to finish the innings strongly. They did just that, with Dhoni hitting 20 runs from just 9 balls and Jadeja scoring 21 from 16.
