At the DY Patel Stadium in Mumbai, it was predicted that he would have to stumble to accumulate runs today. The CSK openers started playing heavily and the run began to rain as CSK was expected to lose wickets early on.
No wickets fell, especially in the 10th over. In the end, Rudraj scored 41 (33) and Devon Conway 87 (49). This is the third consecutive half-century for Conway.
Following this, Shivam Dubey scored 32 off 19 balls with Ambati Rayudu coming in at 5 (6). Dhoni, who came on the field next, hit a six and a four off the first 3 balls and the score began to rise. CSK eventually added 28/6 in 20 overs. Dhoni was on the field till the last 21 (8). Through this match, Dhoni has set a record of 6,000 runs as the captain in T20 cricket. Goalie had previously set this record.
Not a single one of the Delhi team chased down the target and scored a big score. CSK’s consistently threw slow balls. The balls also spun well for spinners. The Delhi batsmen struggled to cope with this. Mitchell Marsh 25 (20) and Rishabh Bandh 21 (11) were the only big scorers. In the end, Delhi lost by 91 runs, adding only 117 runs in 17.4 overs.
CSK Play-Off Opportunity:
Chennai Super Kings have won 4 out of 11 matches. If you win the next 3 matches you can only get a total of 14 points. Since 10 teams need 16 points to go to the playoffs. However, cricket critics estimate that even with a high net run rate of 14 points, there is a 10% chance of going to the playoffs depending on other teams’ wins and losses.
