Delhi Daredevils crush Chennai Super Kings







Pin It



Delhi Daredevils put up a thorough professional performance as they thrashed defending champions Chennai Super Kings by eight wickets in a one sided contest in the Indian Premier League.

Chennai Super Kings were disappointing with the bat for the second time in three games and their confused running allowed Delhi Daredevils to restrict them to their second-lowest total in the IPL for a comprehensive win. Three of the first four Super Kings batsmen ran themselves out as neither Daredevils’ bowlers nor their fielders let up on the pressure.

After the Delhi bowlers kept Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Co under wraps restricting them to a modest 110 for eight, the home batsmen made short work of the target knocking off the runs in only 13.2 overs to register their second win of the tournament.

Virender Sehwag was in blazing form as he set the tone with a typically aggressive 21-ball 33 that was laced with six and four boundaries.

Kevin Pietersen took over from where Sehwag left as he smashed an unbeaten 43 off 26 balls (3×4, 2×6) adding 61 runs with Mahela Jayawardene (20 no) to finish off the proceedings with 40 balls remaining.

The match started half-an-hour late due to rain and wet outfield in the evening and some technical issue due to the lights behind the sight screen.
