Rahane goes big. Plays the pickup shot there. Rasikh Dhar looked to go too full there and was punished as Rahane flicked it for the maximum towards the fine-leg region.

Daryl Mitchell finally gets going and showcases his strength. Went after the spinner, Axar Patel to send it flying straight over the umpire for the maximum. Needed this to release the pressure on him.

A much-needed boundary as Rahane pulls it towards the backwards square-leg boundary for the boundary. The impact sub, Rasikh Dar who bowls medium pace is brought into the attack. Probably not the start he was looking for.

Anrich Nortje who is brought back into the attack is given a harsh welcome as Ajinkya Rahane uses his pace and sends one flying over the square-leg boundary for the maximum.

Geez, Daryl Mitchell gets lucky there. Got the edge which went past the second and third-slips for the boundary of Khaleel’s over. The delivery was angled away from the right-hander but pays with a boundary.

Ajinkya Rahane has picked up the pace and ended their boundary drought in the powerplay. Rahane pulls the length delivery to the gap at the mid-wicket and square-leg boundary region for four runs. He follows it with a well-timed shot just driven towards the point region to make in consecutive boundaries to end the over.

There it is. Khaleel has struck once again and now he has the other opener, Rachin Ravindra’s wicket. Went short and Rachin mistimes the pull. The long-on and long-off almost clash but Tristan Stubbs is able to take the catch.

Khaleel Ahmed strikes in his first over to get the CSK skipper, Ruturaj Gaikwad there. Inswinger got the inside edge to the keeper to get the wicket. A fine start for the home side.

Right then, we have the chase. Khaleel Ahmed has the new ball for DC while it is Ruturaj Gaikwad who is taking the strike. Rachin Ravindra is in the non-striker’s end.
Half-centuries by David Warner and Rishabh Pant guide Delhi Capitals to 191/5 in 20 overs. The opening duo of Warner and Prithvi Shaw provided a blazing start to the Capitals before Pant took things into his own hands and starred with his maiden fifty this season. For CSK, Matheesha Pathirana was the pick of the bowlers as he returned 3 for 31 in 4 overs.
Pathirana to Pant – 6, 4, 4, W
Rishabh Pant has played his part, bringing up a fifty with some fireworks off just 31 balls. But he must be disappointed as he couldn’t finish the innings. The DC skipper looked to have a yorker-length ball but didn’t find the distance. Gaikwad settles underneath it and takes a great catch.
DC: 178/5 in 18.5 overs
All eyes on Rishabh Pant as the DC skipper battling against the CSK attack. Mustafizur into the attack and Pant foils his short ball with a pull shot to collect four runs towards the deep square leg. 150-up for DC.
DC: 153/4 in 17.2 overs
Deshpande to Pant, FOUR!
Attempted wide yorker which ends up as wide full toss. Pant throws his bat at it and makes the connection to get a boundary through deep point.
DC: 143/4 in 16 overs.
W, 0, W: Pathirana, you beauty. Marsh hit the Sri Lankan for a boundary behind square but the young pacer didn’t lose hope. The slinger nails the perfect yorker – 150 clicks – to clean up Marsh and another one to shut Tristan Staubbs for a 2-ball duck.
DC: 134/4 in 15 overs
Chahar to Mitchell Marsh: SIX
Not a great night for Deepak Chahar as he finishes off with the figures of 0 for 44 in 4 overs. Marsh hit him for a six off the last ball of his spell… over deep square into the stands.
DC: 129/2 in 14 overs.
Jadeja to Pant, SIX!
Here comes a Rishabh Pant classic. What a shot, this. Jadeja changes the angle but Pant finds the ball close to his body as he slog sweeps over mid-wicket for a maximum.
DC: 121/2 in 13 overs
A sharp catch from MSD behind the wickets and that would be the end of Prithvi Shaw. The DC opener had just struck a cracking six to Jadeja, only to get caught behind next ball. Quicker delivery, Shaw looks to cut through point, but deflects it straight into Dhoni’s gloves.
DC: 103/2 in 10.4 overs
Mustafizur has done it. He gets the priced wicket of David Warner and the DC opener walks back after scoring 52. Slower one, Warner goes for the reverse lap but can’t place it well. Pathirana pulls off a one-handed stunner and the DC opener is left shell-shocked.
DC: 94/1 in 9.3 overs
