After winning the toss, the Delhi captain decided to field first. And Rishabh’s decision, the new heartthrob of Indian cricket, was given due respect by his bowlers. In the beginning, Chennai lost the wickets of Rituraj (5) and Du’Plessis (0). However, Moin Ali and Suresh Raina took the helm of the innings after a long absence. Moin was dismissed for 38 but Suresh Raina hit a formidable half-century. He explained that he was not finished yet. Unfortunately he was run out. Before that he made 54 runs off just 36 balls. Rayudu (23), Jadeja (26 *) and finally Sam Curran’s stormy batting helped Chennai reach 18 runs. Quran scored 34 runs from just 15 balls. Maren four fours and two sixes. However, Mahendra Singh Dhoni could not open the book on this day. He was bowled by Abesh Khan after playing only two balls. As a result, Dhoni’s fans were disappointed.
In reply, Delhi openers Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan batted in their own mood from the start. Neither Shardul, Deepak nor Sam-Moin-Jadeja could cut the scars. He added 137 runs in the opening over. Then in 13.3 overs, when Prithvi was out with the ball of Bravo, 72 runs from 36 balls were shining next to his name. Shikhar was dismissed for 75 off 54 balls but did not stop Delhi from winning. Captain Rishabh and Hetmeyer led the team to specific targets.
