    Hear from the Man of the Moment, Prithvi Shaw

    Shaw: 'Feeling good. Everyone contributed and it was a good start (to the season). The wicket was good to bat on in the second innings and we executed quite well. From Australia when I was dropped I was working from there itself, coming back and across early, so I practiced before going to Vijay Hazare with Pravin Amre and worked on that. I had a good plan before going into that tournament, so it is working quite well. I don't want to think about it (being dropped from the Indian side) because it was a disappointing moment for me but I have to move on and if something is wrong with my batting or technique, I have to improve and I am working hard on myself.'

    Here's what losing captain MS Dhoni had to say after the result

    "A lot depended on dew, and that factor played on our mind from the start and that's why we wanted to get as many runs as possible. The batters the did a good job to reach 188, because it was tacky until dew settled in 50 minutes later. We could have bowled slightly better, and if batters are hitting you over the fields, that's fair enough. The execution of the bowlers was poor and there were boundary balls that they bowled, but the bowlers will have learned and they will apply that in the future games. The opposition have half an hour in a 7:30 start, when the pitch is really tacky and the ball stops a bit, so we need to get 15-20 runs extra to be safe. If we get dew consistently, then 200 will be a must on a pitch like this. The bowlers bowled a great line when it was stopping and seaming a bit, and the openers got really good balls in which they got out and that can happen in a game like this."

    All Over! Pant hits the winning runs

    Delhi Capitals have beaten Chennai Super Kings by seven wickets to get off the mark in IPL 2021. On the pads once again and it was nothing more than a formality for the DC captain to send the ball to the boundary. They win with eight balls to spare. That sure will lift the run rate.

  • Apr 10, 2021 11:09 PM IST

    WICKET! Hang on

    Not so soon, says Shardul Thakur. He bangs the ball half way into the pitch and Stoinis hits is down deep midwicket's throat. He seemed to have middled the ball well but cries of "Catch It" meant the opposite. He goes for 14. Pant back on strike.

  • Apr 10, 2021 11:08 PM IST

    FOUR! Down the ground in style

    Fuller from Curran and Dhawan's eyes light up. Brings out the straight face of the bat and plays a thunderous straight drive for his second boundary. For a moment, it seemed as if Curran thought there was a chance there, but it was wide. The ball easily beats the fielder at long off. Delhi Capitals 16/0 after 2 overs.

  • Apr 10, 2021 09:36 PM IST

    Sam Curran from the other end

    He had quite a decent hit with the bat but can he do it with the ball now? Sam Curran enjoyed a bit of wood over his brother Tom Curran while batting. Here he comes running in... to Shikhar Dhawan, and it's back-to-back dots.

  • Apr 10, 2021 09:33 PM IST

    FOUR! And now Dhawan in action

    Full and wide. Enough room for Shikhar Dhawan slices it past backward point as the ball races away to the boundary. Incredible timing. Not the kind of first over CSK, Dhoni or Chahar would have liked. DC 9/0 after 1.

  • Apr 10, 2021 09:31 PM IST

    Creamed! Shaw begins with a four

    Deepak Chahar begins with a dot ball but slightly loses his line the next ball. Shaw uses his feet well and flicks for his first boundary. Delhi Capitals are up and away. Plays an aerial drive next ball for a single down to third man. No damage done.

  • Apr 10, 2021 09:30 PM IST

    Here we go...

    The openers are out there, and as are CSK. Blink and you'll miss. That's how quickly things happen in T20 cricket, let alone the IPL. Prithvi Shaw to take strike. How he begins could go a long way in determining the outcome of the result.

  • Apr 10, 2021 09:25 PM IST

    Gavaskar has his eyes on Shaw

    And rightly so. As the former India captain pointed out, he is looking forward to a cracking start from Prithvi Shaw. After what happened to him and his form in the previous IPL, Sunil Gavaskar feels Shaw would have a point to prove. And he sure can. It wasn't too long ago that he became the first batsman to score 800 runs in the Vijay Hazare Trophy. So much has been said and spoken about Shaw. Can he begin in style?

  • Apr 10, 2021 09:23 PM IST

    Can the Capitals chase down 189?

    Chasing is never easy. And when it's a target of almost 190, it becomes even tougher. They have the batsmen who can chase it down for sure. Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, the skipper Rishabh Pant, promising West Indies big-hitter Shimron Hetmyer. A cracking start is on the cards perhaps?

  • Apr 10, 2021 09:19 PM IST

    Suresh Raina speaks

    Suresh Raina - "It's always a good feeling to be back playing with CSK. We had a good partnership, the intent was to be positive and I'm glad to have got runs. This has been a happy hunting ground, I have been working hard, RJ and Sam Curran finished well, I think we have finished with a good total. You'll need 15-16 balls to get going, take the singles and then settle. Moeen batted very well, they've a good bowling attack, he batted positively and took the pressure off me. We have some good swing bowlers, Shardul and Deepak, if we bowl well, we have a good chance of defending 188."
