And that's a wrap to tonight's action as Daredevils displayed a clinical bowling effort in defending 162 against a famed batting line up of Chennai Super Kings. We have a massive day lined up tomorrow as we move into the last weekend of the league stage of the IPL. First we have Rajasthan Royals hosting Royal Challengers Bangalore as both teams eye a place in the playoffs, while Kolkata Knight Riders will be up against Sunrisers Hyderabad, where KKR will look to earn the two points to seal their spot and SRH need to stem the losing streak. So do join us for that!

Harshal Patel: I think bowling is difficult on this pitch, especially knowing how the ground and the dew coming into play. Four-over spells more important than a 25-run cameo. You can bowl one good over and you lose the match in an over. I was just watching the ball and reacting to it. Just about consistency, how often can I produce such performance.  I have been studying my own, need not do anything out of my capabilities. It was just executing my process.

23:59 (IST)

Chennai looked off-colour throughout their innings, and missed out on a chance to move past SRH to the top of the table. They still can do that, provided Hyderabad lose to Kolkata and they beat Punjab.

Harshal Patel is the Man of the Match

Shreyas Iyer, DD captain: We were craving for this victory. Coming against one of the best teams, it was a satisfying victory. Batting, bowling and fielding lived upto the expectations. It wasn't easy to bat on this wicket. Harshal at No 7, we didn't expect it from him, but he delivered, especially that last over was amazing. The way he bowled has also stated his calibre and showed what he is here for. In regards to preparation(over the entire season), we weren't lacking but weren't able to execute it. All three departments couldn't click together. In the matches we've won, all three departments have clicked and it is a good thing. 

23:45 (IST)

MS Dhoni, CSK captain: I think the wicket got difficult and slower and slower in the second half. Nobody was middling it. Difficult to predict how the wicket would better. If we got extra 15-20 runs it would have been better. Need to be very practical about why something went wrong. We know the reasons. Overall dissapointed with the loss but don't think we would have done anything different.  It's important not to look at the points table.Anyone can get an opportunity. Need to be mentally prepared, more than physical. If we get our death sorted out it would be good. You can give 100 different plans to the bowlers, but sometimes you have to shuffle the bowlers.

23:45 (IST)

Always fear the man that has nothing to lose. Delhi played as if they had a point to prove today. They fought gamely with the bat especially towards the end and made a par total appear unassailable with some disciplined bowling. It will be interesting to hear what Dhoni and Fleming will make of their batsmen's effort in the chase today.

A morale-boosting victory for the Daredevils, and even though there is little that they can do to avoid the wooden spoon this year. They still have the pride to play for, and their performance with the ball and on the field today certainly was commendable. 

Chennai looked off-colour throughout their innings and missed out on a chance to move past SRH to the top of the table. They still can do that, provided Hyderabad lose to Kolkata and they beat Punjab.

The result of this match won't have any direct effect on the two remaining spots for the playoffs as CSK have already qualified and DD have already been out from the competition.

David has beaten the Goliath here. The bottom ranked team has beaten the high-profile Chennai Spuer Kings by 34 runs.

Chennai Super Kings finish with 128/6 ( Ravindra Jadeja 27 , Deepak Chahar 1)

DD wrist spinners made the difference between the two sides and as always Trent Boult was special, with all-round effort from Harshal Patel.

IPL 2018, Delhi Daredevils (DD) vs Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Delhi, latest update and live cricket score: David has beaten the Goliath here. The bottom-ranked team has beaten the high-profile Chennai Super Kings by 34 runs. Chennai Super Kings finish with 128/6 ( Ravindra Jadeja 27 , Deepak Chahar 1) DD wrist spinners made the difference between the two sides and as always Trent Boult was special, with all-round effort from Harshal Patel.

Preview: Chennai Super Kings will eye the top spot on the points table when they face bottom-placed Delhi Daredevils in a dead rubber Indian Premier League (IPL) match on Friday.

Chennai, who sit at the second spot in the points-table, have qualified for the playoffs. So in the upcoming match, the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led side would like to brush up some areas of concern ahead of the playoffs stage.

The batting department seemed sorted out as their opening combination of Ambati Rayudu and Shane Watson played sensibly. The lower-order, which included West Indian Dwayne Bravo, Dhoni and Suresh Raina have also contributed handsomely and would like to continue the same.

The pace attack will once again rely on Lungi Ngidi, David Willey and Shardul Thakur.

Delhi, on the other hand, will once again hope to entertain the fans with fireworks from Rishabh Pant, skipper Shreyas Iyer, Prithvi Shaw and Jason Roy.

With nothing to lose, Delhi is expected to test their bench. In such a scenario, the likes of Manjot Kalra, Gurkeerat Mann Singh, Sayan Ghosh may get a look-in.

Delhi's bowling on a flat Kotla wicket was massacred by the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the previous match and they will be hoping for a better effort from the likes of Trent Boult and Co.

Teams:

Delhi Daredevils: Shreyas Iyer (C), Rishabh Pant, Glenn Maxwell, Gautam Gambhir, Jason Roy, Colin Munro, Mohammed Shami, Amit Mishra, Prithvi Shaw, Rahul Tewatia, Vijay Shankar, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Daniel Christian, Jayant Yadav, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, Trent Boult, Manjot Kalra, Abhishek Sharma, Sandeep Lamichhane, Naman Ojha, Sayan Ghosh, Liam Plunkett, Junior Dala.
