IPL 2020 LIVE SCORE, Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Capitals latest updates: DC WIN BY 44 RUNS! A wicket on the last ball for Rabada. Jadeja plays the square cut straight to Mishra at backward point. Second consecutive win for DC in two matches. Second defeat for CSK.
Preview: Delhi Capitals (DC) will look to make it two wins in two matches when they take on the under-pressure Chennai Super Kings (CSK) side in the seventh match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) on Friday. After beating Mumbai Indians (MI) in the tournament opener, CSK endured a nightmarish performance against Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Tuesday, losing by 16 runs.
CSK’s spinners performed poorly in that match, and add to that, 30 runs came off Lungi Ngidi’s over during RR’s batting finale as Jofra Archer ran riot with an eight-ball knock of 27, which included four consecutive sixes as RR posted 216-7.

While openers Murali Vijay and Shane Watson got off to starts, only Faf du Plessis (72) could convert them into a big one.
MS Dhoni batted down the order at number seven, promoting the likes of Sam Curran and Ruturaj Gaikwad, and has been criticised for that as well as a slow start to his innings during an all-important run chase. CSK fell 16 runs short, despite Dhoni hitting three sixes in the final over.
Meanwhile, DC are coming fresh from a Super Over victory over Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), after both teams scored 157-8 in their first match.
Kagiso Rabada proved why he could be a strong contender for the Purple Cap this season, registering figures of 2/28 and also picking both the wickets during the Super Over.
All-rounder Marcus Stoinis, too impressed with a 21-ball knock of 53, and showed that he could play a crucial role with the ball too, with figures of 2-29.
