Chennai Super Kings VS Delhi Capitals IPL LIVE SCORE and LATEST UPDATES

  • Thank you for joining us for the second qualifier. Chennai Super Kings as usual have made it to another IPL final. A fourth-time IPL winner awaits and we will only find out on Sunday. It will be the massive clash between the Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings — two titans, two usual suspects. Before that we will also have the ladies in action. Harmanpreet Kaur's Supernovas and Mithali Raj's Velocity will be up against one another in the Women's IPL Final that takes place at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Saturday.

    For now, we bid you all good night! 

  • Rajesh Tiwary, Freelance cricket writer

    Another year, another final for CSK. They dessimated Delhi today with their all round superiority. They picked wickets at regular intervals to keep DC under 150. With the bat, Faf led the way with his intent on the powerplay pulling Watson along with him who capitalized on his start to make it really easy for the middle order in the end. DC were probably a bit nervous facing a team that has had a wood over them this season. In the end, those calm heads in the yellow shirt proved decisive against some over eager DC youngsters. 

  • Faf du Plessis is the Man of the Match for his 50 off 39 balls

    Faf: Didn't have the best run in the last five or six games, but we do have a lot of confidence as a team that has been in a lot of big games. The wicket looked really good two nights ago, and we were expecting the wicket to be nice upfront. We know the strength of ours is to extend the partnership. Even if we go four overs without too many runs, we have a fantastic hitting tank at the back to catch right up. He (Watson) did thank me already. Hopefully next game both of us can just find the middle of our bat from ball one. Great to be in another final for Chennai. I had to laugh at myself because it was terrible running. After that we could settle. 

  • MS Dhoni, CSK captain: It is usual route, Last year was an exception. I think the kind of response the boys game was brilliant. The wicket might be slightly difficult at the start. The groundsmen feel objiged to water the wicket in the start. It is important to get the openers out whether it is Prithvi or Shikhar. It is important to take timely wickets. Crucial part was to take wickets. The credit needs to go to them. The captain only asks them. Experience really counts and they have to put the hards to stay fit for close to 45-50 days. I think thanks to the bowling department for the place we are now. I would have preferred the openers to score few more runs. They did the hard yards to get out the first three overs.

  • Shane Watson (50 off 32 balls): Bit nervous (at the start of the innings). Just one of those nights where it's just meant to me. Just the faith of CSK in me continued to show. Nice it all worked out tonight. Faf batted beautifully to get our innings underway. Took me a while to find my rhythm. I took a couple of balls to find my feet. Faf helped me through that stage. That's the beauty of cricket. You rely on teammates. There are huge positives about age and experience. When you've got experienced players, you've got a better understanding of what to do. They've (Mumbai Indians) got a great team, they always have. Will be a great challenge for us. We can't wait for Sunday. (MSD) He's an amazing person, not just as a cricketer. I've learned a hell of a lot from him. Some runs to contribute (in the final) to will be nice. 

  • Shreyas Iyer, Delhi Capitals captain: We didn't get as many runs as we expected. We lost two wickets in the Powerplay, and it was very difficult after that. Was a great season for us. Coming from Delhi, where the wicket was slow, the wicket was quite similar. None of the batsmen, though took the initiative to take the batsmen through. Disappointed, but great learning for us. Home games we didn't win that much, but can't really complain much. Wickets we practiced on in Delhi, has an uneven bounce. Got nothing to say about the wicket as a professional. (On captaincy) I've learned a lot, looking at seniors such as MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma. Proud moment for me. Learning a lot from my teammates as well. As a captain, you get to know your management a lot as well. It's not an easy job to do, but I'll take it anyday. The way we came out this year, everybody took the initiative. Loved the way we gelled as a unit. It's been a dream season for us, and it's just the start. Now it's time for us to grow.

  • After 19 overs,Chennai Super Kings 151/4 ( Ambati Rayudu 20 , Dwayne Bravo 4)

    Ishant bowls the penultimate over, and starts off with a dot to Dhoni. MS then lobs a full toss down the ground for a brace, with Munro saving a couple of runs for Delhi, leaving Chennai just two to win. Dot off the third. Dhoni then gets caught at deep midwicket while looking for a glory shot off the fourth. Rayudu collects a single off the fifth to level the scores, before Bravo collects the winning boundary off the final delivery of the over.

    MS Dhoni c Paul b Ishant 9(9)

  • After 18 overs,Chennai Super Kings 144/3 ( Ambati Rayudu 19 , MS Dhoni (C) (W) 7)

    Keemo Paul bowls the 18th. Leg bye conceded at the start of the over, before Rayudu tickles the ball towards fine-leg for a boundary to bring the equation down to single digits. Couple of dots, before Rayudu slashes the ball between two fielders on the off side to get Chennai closer to the target. Nine off the over, Keemo Paul's best of the evening, though that hardly helps Delhi's cause. CSK need 4 off 12.

  • FOUR! Slashed hard through the gap between backward point and short third man by Rayudu off Paul! CSK 144/3, need four to win off 13 balls

  • FOUR! Tickled away towards the fine-leg fence by Rayudu off Paul, with the equation for CSK now coming down to single digits! CSK 140/3

Axar through, strikes off his last delivery of the evening, dismissing Raina for 11. Timeout signalled by the umpire. CSK need 21 off 24.

  • OUT! Raina's uncomfortable stay at the crease comes to an end as he chops the ball onto his stumps to depart for 11! Wicket for Axar off his very last delivery of the evening. Huge roar from the Vizag crowd, who now expect Dhoni to walk out next. CSK 127/3

    Raina b Axar 11(13)

  • FOUR! First boundary for Ambati Rayudu, shuffling down the track and lofting inside out over deep extra cover. CSK 126/2

  • After 15 overs,Chennai Super Kings 119/2 ( Suresh Raina 8 , Ambati Rayudu 5)

    Rayudu heaves the ball towards deep midwicket at the start of Mishra's final over, collecting just a single. Single to Raina off the second. Dot off the next two balls, followed by two more singles. Four runs of the over, as Mishra signs off with 1/21 from his quota. CSK need 29 off 30.

  • After 14 overs,Chennai Super Kings 115/2 ( Suresh Raina 6 , Ambati Rayudu 3)

    Tidy over from Axar, with just four singles coming off it. Raina and Rayudu, the two new batsmen at the crease, are taking their time to get settled at the centre. Still less than run-a-ball for the Super Kings, who need 33 off 36.

  • After 13 overs,Chennai Super Kings 111/2 ( Suresh Raina 4 , Ambati Rayudu 1)

    Mishra removes Watson off his second delivery, the latter mis-hitting the ball towards long off where Boult holds on to the catch.

Just three singles off Mishra's third over along with Watson's wicket. CSK need 37 off 42.

    Next 11 balls - 32 runs (SR - 290.91)

  • OUT! Amit Mishra removes the other opener, with Watson getting caught by Boult at wide long off while looking for another maximum. He's disappointed with his shot selection, and the fact that he won't be around to see his side through. CSK 109/2

    Watson c Boult b Mishra 50(32)

  • After 12 overs,Chennai Super Kings 108/1 ( Shane Watson 50 , Suresh Raina 2)

    Watson puts Paul under pressure right away by collecting a six and a four off the first two deliveries. Paul then responds with a slower ball, one that is hit down the ground for a single. Single collected off the next two deliveries. Watson picks the slower one from Paul in the penultimate delivery, slog-sweeping it over wide long on for a maximum. An under-pressure Paul concedes a wide down the leg side in the penultimate delivery. Watson collects another six off the last ball to bring up his half-century, this one off 31 balls. 25 runs off Paul's second over! CSK need 40 off 48.

  • SIX! Heaved down the ground by Watson, the ball airborne for quite some time before landing beyond long off. Fine way for Shane Watson to bring up his half-century, taking just 31 balls to complete the milestone, six less than what du Plessis took. CSK 108/1

  • SIX! Slog-swept over the wide long on fence by Watson off Paul, bringing up the 100 for the Chennai Super Kings! CSK 101/1

  • FOUR! Watson's high on confidence, collecting a four right after hitting Paul for a six, this time pulling in front of square on the leg side. CSK 93/1

  • After 11 overs,Chennai Super Kings 83/1 ( Shane Watson 27 , Suresh Raina 1)

    Boult returns to the attack, and he gets Delhi their much-needed breakthrough, dismissing du Plessis off the second delivery of the over with Keemo Paul collecting a fine catch at deep square leg. Raina walks out to bat and gets off the mark right away with a single. Excellent over from the left-arm Kiwi pacer, with just two runs coming off it to go with du Plessis' dismissal. CSK need 65 off 54.

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Suresh Raina has scored 693 runs from 20 innings at an average of 49.5 and a SR of 165.39 in IPL playoffs - highest for any player with atleast six innings.

    Du Plessis c Paul b Boult 50(39)

  • Rajesh Tiwary, Freelance cricket writer

    The difference in big match experience is starting to show now. CSK looked the far more composed and focused team throughout this contest. Delhi are athletic in the field but they have already fluffed up a run out chance and misjudged a catch that landed between two fielders. Watson and Faf are doing it easy now. With all those calm heads to follow in the middle order, it seems the writing is on the wall for DC. They had to take some wickets to really challenge CSK in their pursuit of 148.

  • After 10 overs,Chennai Super Kings 81/0 ( Faf du Plessis 50 , Shane Watson 26)

    Axar returns to the attack in the 10th over and starts off with a couple of dots. FDP collects a single off the third to complete his half-century off 37 deliveries. Watson then further boosts his confidence with a six off a slog-sweep off the penultimate ball. Nine off the over. CSK need 67 off 60.

  • SIX! Watson gets down on one knee and slog-sweeps the full delivery from Axar towards the square-leg fence for a maximum — only the second of the innings so far. CSK 81/0

  • Fifty up for Faf du Plessis, his 12th in the IPL, and this one's come off just 37 deliveries! An important innings from the South African, helping settle CSK's nerves after a couple of close calls early in the innings. CSK 73/0

  • After 9 overs,Chennai Super Kings 72/0 ( Faf du Plessis 49 , Shane Watson 18)

    Watson collects his second boundary at the start of Mishra's second over, and survives a dismissal scare in the second delivery after a mishit towards mid on lands between Shaw and Munro, the latter having to cover a lot more distance before putting in a slide in vain. Eight off the over. CSK need 76 off 66.

  • FOUR! Helped away towards the fine leg fence by Watson off Mishra! CSK 68/0

  • After 8 overs,Chennai Super Kings 64/0 ( Faf du Plessis 47 , Shane Watson 12)

    Keemo starts his first over with a slower one to Watto, but bowls five wides down the leg side off the next delivery to help CSK complete the fifty opening stand. Watson then collects his first boundary three balls later, tickling a full toss towards the fine leg fence. Faf then collects a boundary off the last delivery, guiding the ball towards third man where Munro puts in a spirited dive in vain. 16 off the over, CSK need 84 off 72.

  • FOUR! Faf is cramped for room while looking for a cut, guiding the ball towards third man off an under-edge. Munro gives the ball a spirited chase, puts in a dive near the boundary cushion, but is called a four with Munro's body touching the advertising cushion at the time of him pulling the ball back inside. CSK 64/0

  • FOUR! Full toss down the leg side, and Watson couldn't have got a better delivery to collect his first boundary off and boost his confidence. Simply redirects it towards the fine leg fence. CSK 59/0

  • Fifty partnership up between Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson, with Keemo Paul helping the batting side complete the milestone by conceding five wides in his second delivery of the evening. CSK 53/0

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Chennai Super Kings’ average opening stand of 18.07 this season before today - the lowest among all the teams.

  • Rajesh Tiwary, Freelance cricket writer

    Good final over of powerplay for CSK. Faf is doing all the running for his team. Watson seems stuck at one end but more time at the crease will give him a chance to come back stronger in the latter half of this innings. Mishra's spell against the two right handers is going to be the key now. 

  • After 7 overs,Chennai Super Kings 48/0 ( Faf du Plessis 42 , Shane Watson 6)

    Amit Mishra brought into the attack after powerplay, and concedes just two singles off his first five deliveries, before du Plessis sweeps powerfully towards the square leg boundary to add another four to his tally. CSK need 100 off 78.

IPL 12 Qualifier 2 CSK vs DC at the ACA–VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam: Chennai Super Kings win by six wickets, and will now meet Mumbai Indians in the final for the fourth time in the IPL. This is CSK's eight final appearance in the 10 editions that they have played till date. Talk about consistency!

IPL 2019, Qualifier 2, CSK vs DC Today’s Match Preview: Shreyas Iyer-led Delhi Capitals (DC) will look make it to their maiden Indian Premier League (IPL) final with victory over MS Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Qualifier 2 at the Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA–VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam.

The task of beating MS Dhoni's team is easier said than done but the Ricky Ponting-coached side will have their hopes pinned on star wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant to make maximum impact. Pant has made 450 runs from 15 matches at an average 37.50 so far, and with a strike rate of 163.63. Delhi are also coming into the match with winning momentum having won their last two matches.

Chennai became the first team to book their spot in the playoffs, but their recent form has been a bit awry. They have managed to win only two matches from their last seven games. Batting has been a bit of a problem for the team and they depend a lot on Dhoni to perform with the bat. But this is Chennai Super Kings, who are the defending champions and have won the tournament thrice.
