A commanding batting display led by Prithvi Shaw (64), backed up by disciplined bowling efforts from Kagiso Rabada (three for 26) and Axar Patel (4-0-18-1), powered Delhi Capitals to a 44-run win over Chennai Super Kings at the Dubai International Stadium on Friday.
Chasing 176, the Super Kings produced yet another sub-par batting performance and never seemed in the hunt at any point. Openers M. Vijay and Shane Watson struggled and fell cheaply as Super Kings scored just 35 in the PowerPlay.
Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad were sluggish too before the latter was run out. From overs 7-10, the Chennai side managed only 12 runs.
Kedar Jadhav, who walked in at No. 5, failed to get going and by the time he and du Plessis looked to accelerate, the asking rate had mounted to more than 15 runs an over. It proved too steep a climb for the Super Kings.
