MS Dhoni once again shows his hitting prowess and takes CSK to 179/4 in 20 overs. After Morris went for 18 in the 19th over, Boult goes for 21 off the last. He started with a boundary off the third ball and then hit couple of sixes off the last two deliveries. Dhoni ends at at 44 off 22 deliveries and it included 4 boundaries and three sixes.

21:33 hrs IST

No ball and six

After picking up the wicket of Jadeja, Morris simply loses it as he bowls beamer and Dhoni pulls it for a six. The umpire says no ball and Morris apologises to Dhoni as well. 18 runs off the over from Morris as CSK have flown past 150 now.

21:27 hrs IST

Ravindra Jadeja’s cameo comes to an end as he is caught and bowled by Chris Morris. The bowler produced a top-edge of Jadeja’s bat and ran full length himself towards mid wicket to complete the catch as there was no fielder there. Jadeja falls for 25 off 10 deliveries.

21:21 hrs IST

Expensive over from Morris

Chris Morris is still leaking runs, something that he did in his first spell. Dhoni and Jadeja both hit one boundary each off the 16th over as Morris goes for 10 runs. The two CSK batsmen will now look to score as many runs as possible in the last three of overs. They would want to cross the 150-run mark atleast.

21:15 hrs IST

Rutherford drops easy chance

Delhi should have picked their fourth wicket of the night but Rutherford sends a catch from Jadeja over the boundary ropes. He had reached the ball in time to catch it comfortably but made a mess of it.

20:49 hrs IST


Raina and du Plessis are leading CSK’s charge as they have put together 50-run stand for the second wicket. The run rate remains a cause of concern for the home side (5.5) but as we have seen in the previous matches, CSK can score runs quickly in the business end of the innings.

20:43 hrs IST

Another good over from Mishra

Amit Mishra is keeping things tight on the other end as he concedes just three singles from his second over. His first over had gone for five runs. DC need more of such overs to pile on more pressure on the batsmen.

Tidy over from Mishra

Leg spinner Amit Mishra stems the flow of runs a bit as the two CSK batsmen were unable to score a boundary after hitting few on the trot in the last couple of overs. Mishra gives away just 5 singles in the over to keep things tight.

Raina in a hurry

20:16 hrs IST

Watson departs early

20:12 hrs IST

Still no boundary

Three overs have been bowled now and Watson and du Plessis haven’t hit a single boundary thus far. Boult’s second over always goes for just one run and CSK are not going anymore at the moment.

20:07 hrs IST

Suchith starts well

Another good over for DC early in the game as spinner jagadeesha Suchith too gives a single in his first over. CSK openers are off to a steady start and this is not the first time this season they have done so. They can accelerate anytime and that will be something DC should be on guard about.

20:03 hrs IST

Good first over

Trent Boult, who came into the side in place of Kagiso Rabada, bowls a good first over as he gives away just one single off it. The two CSK batsmen were content with just defending him in the first over of the match. Jagdish Suchith will bowl the second over of the innings.

19:22 hrs IST

Player battle - Shaw vs Harbhajan

This tournament has been a revelation for young Prithvi Shaw who has enjoyed a good run of form along with Shikhar Dhawan at the top of the Delhi Capitals batting order. Harbhajan, on the other hand, is a veteran of the game and he has also enjoyed a great run in this year’s competition. With 9 wickets at Chennai, he has been a top performer for his side and he will certainly pose a major threat to Shaw.

19:16 hrs IST

Player battle - Pant vs Tahir

A fight between two extremely enthusiastic characters as both Pant and Tahir are known for their on-field aggression. While Pant has set the stage on fire with his explosive knocks including a 18-ball-fifty, Tahir has impressed with 17 wickets and he will be key to CSK’s game plan against DC’s star performer.

19:10 hrs IST

Player battle - Dhawan vs Chahar

Chahar has been the strike bowler for CSK this season but against a in-form veteran like Dhawan, he will have his work cut out. With 15 wickets, Chahar has been a trump card for his team but the Delhi Capitals opener has been enjoying a brilliant run of form and it will be difficult to stop his onslaught.

19:04 hrs IST

Player battle - Raina vs Rabada

With 25 wickets from 12 matches, Rabada is currently the highest wicket-taker in this year’s IPL and his performances are one of the main reasons behind Delhi Capitals booking their spot in the playoffs. On the other hand, Raina has enjoyed the best of forms this season and although his record in the tournament is something to behold, it will be a tough task for the left-hander to deal with Rabada.

18:58 hrs IST

Player battle - Watson vs Mishra

It has been a topsy turvy campaign for Watson who had a horrible run in the start of the tournament but he has regained a bit of form of late and now has 251 runs from 12 matches. However, on Wednesday, he will be up against Amit Mishra who has dismissed him five times in the IPL.

18:52 hrs IST

Dhoni missed training

MS Dhoni didn’t take part in Tuesday’s training session and also missed the practice on Monday. He also said the performance in the game against Mumbai Indians (which CSK lost) on April 26 was not due to the couple of changes forced on the team with Dhoni being ruled out for the second time this season.

18:46 hrs IST

Fleming on Dhoni’s fitness

Chennai Super Kings head coach Stephen Fleming Tuesday said captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni had been “pretty sick” last week and a call on his participation in the game against Delhi Capitals on Wednesday will be taken before the toss.

“Dhoni is progressing and he’s been pretty sick during this week. We will make a call on him tomorrow (Wednesday). He is progressing which is good,” Fleming told reporters on eve of the game against Delhi Capitals. 

18:38 hrs IST

Rabada vs Spinners

It will be fascinating to see how the league’s top wicket-taker Kagiso Rabada does on CSK’s home turf, traditionally known to offer help to slow bowlers. The spin-heavy CSK led by Imran Tahir and Harbhajan Singh could prove quite a handful for Dhawan & Co. and how they cope with that would determine the game’s outcome, as would the Delhi tweakers performance.

18:30 hrs IST

Visitors on a high

Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, would be high on confidence having posted four wins in their last five matches. Young Shreyas Iyer has done a good job of leading the team, which also has 16 points from 12 games, and has scored important runs. He will be keen to put on some valuable runs on board against the formidable CSK and would also expect Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant to find ways to score on a sluggish Chepauk track.

18:20 hrs IST

CSK sweat over MSD’s fitness

With 16 points from 12 games, CSK will be hoping that their talismanic captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni recovers from the bout of fever, which forced him to sit out the MI fixture, and be ready to feature in the last home match of the league phase

18:10 hrs IST

A blip in form

Mahendra Singh Dhoni-less CSK went down rather tamely to Mumbai Indians in their last game, which saw their net run-rate falling. Now with just two games left in the league stage, CSK will look to roar back with victories to seal a spot in the top two and get the home comfort in Qualifier 1. Without his inspiring presence, CSK’s batting collapsed against MI and they lost the game by 46 runs to surrender their position at the top of the points table to Delhi.

18:00 hrs IST
