Right! Chennai have put on a big score on the board! But that is not enough. They will have to back it up with a fine bowling performance. Remember that Delhi’s batters are in fine form. And one more thing to remember is the ground. Sharjah! The shorter boundaries might come to play again. If Shaw and Dhawan can give Delhi a fine start, we could be in for a fine second essay. Join us for the run chase in a bit.
Ravindra Jadeja, the man of the moment, is up for a chat. Says that they are playing a lot of cricket these days. Because of that, he is going to the gym a lot these days, every alternate day. Tells that he took a couple of balls to settle and then went big. Jadeja feels that the pitches are suiting more to Chennai’s needs as they are on the slower side now. States though that it is imperative to modify their bowling according to the conditions at play.
The bowling from Delhi wasn’t too bad! They were tested early on when Watson and du Plessis were punishing them. However, they didn’t give it away all and kept pulling things back with tidy overs in between. However, towards the final overs, they were taken to the cleaners by Rayudu and Jadeja. Axar Patel was their most economical bowler but he didn’t get wickets. Others, including Rabada, were treated disdainfully by the duo of Rayudu and Jadeja. Nortje got 2 while Rabada and Deshpande managed 1 wicket.
Earlier in the game, after opting to bat, Chennai had a poor start as their ploy to continue opening with Sam Curran didn’t work out as he went for a 3-ball duck in the first over. However, Watson walked and along with Chennai rebuilt the innings. They added 87 for the 2nd wicket and took the team towards a good score! Watson fell but Faf continued and got to yet another half ton. However, he got into a nasty collision with Rabada while going for a single and because of that, he struggled a bit and eventually holed out in search of quick runs. However, Chennai lost quick wickets and it looked like Delhi bowlers will once again push Chennai on the back foot but Rayudu along with Jadeja went big in the last few overs to take the team towards a fine score.
Excellent finish to the innings for Chennai! Rayudu and Jadeja’s flourish in the last 5-overs means that they have put on a superb score on the board! 67 runs in the last 5 overs. Rabada was hammered, Nortje was hammered! Yes, two of Delhi and the tournament’s best bowlers got some stick towards the end.

OUT! CAUGHT! A faint edge. A little edge. Length ball around off, Dhoni comes down the track and looked to hammer that over mid-wicket.
