IPL 2020 Highlights, DC vs CSK Match, Full Cricket Score: Dhawan's maiden ton powers Delhi to five-wicket win over Chennai

23:42 (IST)

Well that's it from us in our coverage of the Delhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings fixture — the second of the Saturday double-header — as Shreyas Iyer and Co complete a season double over the three-time champions, whose chances of making it to the playoffs are increasingly looking impossible now with six losses from nine matches.

Do join us tomorrow in the Sunday double-header as SRH take on KKR in the afternoon fixture, which will take place in Abu Dhabi and will be followed by MI vs KXIP in Dubai. For now, it's time for us to bid you all good night!

23:40 (IST)

Shikhar Dhawan, Man of the Match: It feels really special, it’s my first IPL ton. At first, I wasn’t converting those 30’s into 50’s. I just want to continue the same form and make the most of it. I look to keep my mindset positive and I play with courage. I’m not afraid to get out. Due to the coronavirus, we had many months, so I worked on myself both mentally and physically. I just make sure my fitness is up to the mark and I am an asset for my team

23:38 (IST)

Shreyas Iyer, Delhi Capitals captain: Well I was pretty much nervous. I knew if Shikhar stays on till the end, we will win. (On Dhawan) He’s always there in the dressing room, and he’s always the unsung hero. That guy follows his routine pretty well. You see the gelling (in the team) was really amazing right from the first day of the camp. We know the strengths and weaknesses of our teammates right from the start. Hopefully we’ll try and maintain this till the last game. Today the way he (Dhawan) batted and also the way he converted that into a 100, it was really mesmerising, and as a captain, it gives you breathing space.

23:26 (IST)

CSK captain MS Dhoni: Well Bravo was not fit, so we went ahead with Jadeja (in the last over). Well, I think Shikhar’s wicket was important. He is somebody, if he is on the crease, he will keep the scoreboard ticking. The wicket behaved differently in the first and second innings but credit to Dhawan and the other batters who supported him. I feel this game will give confidence to Sam Curran to execute yorkers outside off.

23:25 (IST)

Shikhar Dhawan’s century today..

- His first in the IPL
- Second by a DC batsman against CSK in IPL
- Ninth century for DC in IPL

After 19.5 overs,Delhi Capitals 185/5 ( Shikhar Dhawan 101 , Axar Patel 21)

Jadeja, and not Dwayne Bravo, is bowling the final over, and he starts off with a wide. Dhawan then collects a single off the first legal delivery as he guides the ball towards the leg side. Axar Patel, however, reminds every just how useful he is with the bat in hand as he smashes Jadeja out of the park, collecting three sixes off the next four deliveries to finish the game by himself as Delhi Capitals collect their seventh win of the campaign with five wickets and a delivery to spare!

For Chennai, they’re condemned to their sixth defeat in nine games, and by now the prospect of making it to the playoffs looks very difficult indeed for MS Dhoni and Co!

IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Delhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings latest updates: Jadeja, and not Dwayne Bravo’s bowling the final over, and he starts off with a wide. Dhawan then collects two off the first legal delivery as he guides the ball towards the leg side. Axar Patel, however, reminds every just how useful he is with the bat in hand as he smashes Jadeja out of the park, collecting three sixes off four deliveries — to finish the game by himself as Delhi Capitals collect their seventh win of the campaign with five wickets and a delivery to spare! For Chennai, they’re condemned to their sixth defeat in nine games, and by now the prospect of making it to the playoffs looks very difficult indeed for MS Dhoni and Co!

Preview: Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are back to winning ways. After a long struggle, CSK defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Tuesday to break their losing streak.

 They have so far only won three out of eight contests and would need to win at least five from the next eight to have any chance of making it to the playoffs.

It's a tough challenge no doubt but a team comprising of Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Dwayne Bravo and Dhoni can never be discounted.

It was Dhoni's astute captaincy that helped CSK beat SRH. Their decision to bowl as many as seven bowlers and to make Sam Curran open the innings paid rich dividends.

Now they face table toppers Delhi Capitals (DC) at Sharjah, a stadium where balls flying out of the ground has become a common spectacle, but the pitch has been slowing down for the last few matches and CSK are expected to continue with three spinners who played against SRH - Piyush Chawla, Karn Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja.

DC's bowling on the other hand has emerged as the best among all the teams in this edition of IPL. They rely equally on their pacers and spinner. South Africa's Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje have been highly impressive and have been ably assisted by R Ashwin and Axar Patel.

DC also boast of terrific batsmen like Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, and Marcus Stoinis. However, consistency has been an issue for the batting lot and CSK would be looking to target this weakness.

There's still no confirmation on whether DC captain Shreyas Iyer will play in the match after he injured his shoulder in the last contest against Rajasthan Royals (RR).
