Chennai Super Kings defeated Delhi Capitals by 6 wickets
Shane Watson and Dawane Bravo emerged as the star of the Match
MS Dhoni team started from where they left last year as CSK registered a 2nd consecutive win in IPL 2019. Chennai put up a complete team performance to accomplish another convincing win. Whereas DC batting tested under a testing condition which is favoring spinners, young Delhi team’s dependence on Rishabh Pant and lack of depth in batting also exposed in the match against CSK.
Captain Cool, MS Dhoni’s smart, analytical captaincy and his game reading, art once again work for CSK in a slow Delhi wicket. His tactics of playing 3 spinners and only 3 overseas players worked well in favor of Chennai team.
Shreyas Iyer missed the trick by not playing Sandeep Lamichhane in the spin-friendly deck. He also played 3 overseas players, but he would have played Sandeep as a 4th Overseas player could have made the difference for Delhi
Note: Shane Watson adjudged player of the match for his 44 runs in just 26 balls
