Things didn’t start very well for CSK as they were slow and only managed to get 150 by the end of 20 overs. Which is not exactly a top score in these days and the truth is they got 150 thanks to MS Dhoni’s batting. Otherwise, they were at risk of not making even 140. NM Coulter-Nile got 3 wickets for Delhi and bowled very well. For CSK the highest run scorer is DR Smith who got to 34.
A magnificent knock from Albie Morkel took Delhi to as close as possible to that target. Delhi had a poor start as they lost early wickets and was loosing wickets at regular interval. However Morkel played magnificently for his 73 and took the team far. The last ball, he needed 6 runs but only managed to get a 4. That is why Delhi is leaving this match with a 1 run loss. Nehra got 3 wickets for CSK in this match.
