DCvsCSK : ‘The leader is one; Martial artist!’ – Dhoni’s dominance; But, how did CSK lose?

“Our game will be different against Chennai. We’re going to play with extra aggression.’ Delhi coach Ricky Ponting had said this in the pre-match press conference. Delhi players have done what Ricky Ponting talked about on the field.


Due to the vibrant performance of the Delhi players, the Chennai Vs Delhi match has been exciting and thrilling till the end. Delhi has won.

“It is a good wicket. It will be comfortable to bat on. So I hope we will bat first and set a good target and then debunk it,” said Delhi captain Rishabh Pant during the toss. Delhi’s batting was better in this match than in the first two matches. Prithvi Shah was included in the playing eleven. He was the opener along with David Warner. Chennai bowlers dominated the first 4 overs. But, after that David Warner started to do well Dutch. Hit consecutive boundaries. Prithvi Shaw also came in for a good dutch after the powerplay.

They attacked Jadeja, who was the only spinner of the Chennai team. Mushtafizur had hit three consecutive boundaries in Rahman’s over. Both increased the run rate. After crossing the half-century, Warner was caught by Pathirana who was standing at short third man while trying to reverse-sweep off Mushtabijur. It is bound to be one of the best catches of the season. Prithvi also took an edge off Ravindra Jadeja and was caught by Dhoni. At 104 kmph, Prithvi was deceived as he tried to cut the ball which he bowled faster than usual.


The highlight of Chennai’s bowling was the two yorkers bowled by Patirana. Both smashed the stumps in the same over.


First, a 150 kph yorker smashes Marsh’s middle stump. Stubbs’ stumps were also scattered on the next ball, which was bowled at 149 kmph. The big positive of the Delhi innings was Rishabh Bunt. He scored his first half-century in this match after his comeback. At first he played slowly. It was only in the second half of the innings that the action figure moved towards his half-century. Rishabh Pant’s performance took Delhi to 191 runs. “It’s a good enough score. But it could have crossed 200,” David Warner half-heartedly said.

Like the batting of the Delhi team, the bowling was more elegant than usual. Khalil Ahmed took the wickets of both the openers. Rutheraj was caught on an edge outside off stump at Test match length. Rachin was bowled at half-off on a short ball as the pressure piled up. The Chennai team got stuck in the power play. The run rate was under 6. It was Rahane who rescued the team from the slump. He kept Daryl Mitchell standing at one end and was picking up the run rate at the other end. Rahane’s game was a bit of a save but the pressure kept on CSK.


With Rizvi, Dubey and Mitchell all out, the game moved to a situation where they needed to score 79 runs in the last 5 overs. Dhoni and Jadeja stood at the crease. This is Dhoni’s first visit to bat this season. He came to Greece with a high-pitched welcome from the fans who rocked the stadium and started with a boundary off the first ball he faced. Dhoni hit two fours in that over bowled by Mukesh Kumar. A six in the next over from Khalil. Khalil was trying to throw white yorker to Dhoni and was throwing white. Deep third man, deep point is an ideal field setup for a white yorker. Dhoni breaks it and hits that six over the covers.


Now need 46 runs in two overs. Big goal. Big challenge. Dhoni came on strike in the second ball itself. Those who thought that Dhoni would fly the balls in this over of Mukesh Kumar were disappointed.

He avoided singles without giving a strike to Jadeja and did not hit a boundary in that over. Only 5 runs came. The defeat of the Chennai team was also confirmed. Dhoni showed some fireworks in the last over of Norkia after the match got out of hand. Sixarotellam finished off the last ball. They pleased the fans who paid a few thousand for tickets but did not propel the team towards victory. Dhoni has played well with 200+ strikes. However, CSK have slipped this time in the powerplay and middle overs.


Both openers, who were believed to be mountains, lost. A six man in the middle overs did nothing. As a result, Delhi got their first win. Lions also occasionally take blows. However, CSK fans are not sad at all. That’s what confused them!
