This dominant victory, held at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, brought CSK’s league campaign tally to an impressive 17 points from 14 matches.
Openers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway stole the show early on with a spectacular 141-run stand, scoring 79 off 50 and 87 off 52 respectively. The momentum continued as Shivam Dube and Ravindra Jadeja added to the total, contributing 22 off 9 and 20* off 7 respectively, to set a robust target of 223/3.
DC’s batting lineup struggled against the formidable CSK bowlers, with only David Warner showing a strong resistance by scoring an 86-run knock off 58 balls. The opening bowlers for CSK, Tushar Deshpande and Deepak Chahar, initiated an early collapse, taking key wickets of Prithvi Shaw and Philip Salt. Deepak Chahar continued to impress with his spell, claiming two more important wickets, including that of Axar Patel and Rilee Rossouw.
Despite Warner’s valiant efforts, DC failed to build a significant partnership. The turning point came when Ravindra Jadeja dismissed Yash Dhull, followed by Deshpande’s removal of Aman Hakim Khan. With Warner’s dismissal by Matheesha Pathirana in the 19th over and Maheesh Theekshana’s back-to-back wickets in the final over, DC’s innings crumbled to 146/9.
The match had begun with CSK Captain MS Dhoni winning the toss and opting to bat. Both teams retained their core players, with DC introducing Lalit Yadav and Chetan Sakariya and CSK naming Matheesha Pathirana, Mitchell Santner, Subhranshu Senapati, Shaik Rasheed, and Akash Singh as substitutes.
Gaikwad and Conway exhibited excellent chemistry in the initial overs, taking advantage of DC’s bowlers, especially Khaleel Ahmed and Lalit Yadav.

Following Conway’s dismissal, Jadeja and Dhoni secured the innings, resulting in a daunting total of 223/3.
The second innings saw DC introduce Prithvi Shaw and CSK bring in Matheesha Pathirana as Impact Players. Unfortunately for DC, CSK’s bowling performance proved too challenging, leading to their downfall and confirming CSK’s triumphant victory.
