IPL 2021 Highlights, Delhi Capitals (DC) vs Chennai Super Kings (CSK): In response, DC got off a decent start. By the end of the powerplay, they got to 51-2.

In between, Pant (15), Ashwin (2) and Ripal Patel (18) were also sent packing. Jadeja ended with a two-wicket haul. DC then needed 33 runs off 24 balls to win. Eventually, it was Shimron Hetmyer's unbeaten 28 and his 36-run stand with Axar Patel that guided DC to 3-wicket win with 2 balls to spare. DC bowlers picked up two CSK wickets in the Powerplay. While Axar Patel first dismissed Faf du Plessis on 10, Anrich Nortje got the better of Ruturja Gaikwad (13) with a ferocious bouncer. The side reached 48/2 after 6 overs.

    FOUR! Length ball from Chahar and it was a slower delivery. He lifts the ball over mid-on's head for four. His bottom hand came off the bat's handle, suggesting he wasn't in complete control but he had put enough power in it to take it all the way.

    OUT! This time, he's gone. For the 6th time, Chahar gets Shaw. His stay was quite streaky so one can say it was coming. Short outside off. Shaw looks to go over the top over cover but he ends up holing out to the fielder.

  • Oct 04, 2021 07:06 PM IST

    CSK captain MS Dhoni at the toss

    "We were looking to bat first, but we were not 100% sure, the wicket seems to be tacky. We have got a few changes - Sam is out, Bravo is back, Chahar replaces Asif and Robin Uthappa replaces Suresh Raina, who has a back issue. We are trying to rest players who have some niggles, top-two is important, if you have a bad day in the qualifiers, you have another chance to make a comeback"

  • Oct 04, 2021 07:06 PM IST

    DC skipper Rishabh Pant at the toss

    “We will bowl first. The wicket might do a bit early, so better bowling first. We just need to focus on the basics, continue doing what we have been doing, want to finish in the top two. Ripal Patel is making his debut, Smith goes out. He's a lower middle-order batsman who can bowl a few overs. Always great learning from him, but right now he's a rival, so focus is on the game.”

    IPL 2021: Shimron Hetmyer speaks to the broadcasters

    “Next is to win all the remaining games, we have to take one game at a time. We are not trying to think too much and too far ahead into finals day. I try to do as much as I can in practice because I know that my role is not really to go out and face as many balls as possible. When I do get a chance though, I try to execute my goals and my plans as much as possible. It's really good for me knowing that the top-order is really doing the bulk of the work, so it makes my job much easier. (On today's clash) For me, it's just another game actually, we have to go out there and execute as well as we did in the past games. Just to remember the good things that we have done well and continue to do so.”

    Pitch report by Simon Doull and Matthew Hayden

    "We are using the same surface that the Sunrisers and the Knight Riders played yesterday. There is nothing wrong with the wicket - there is no great deal of spin available, the bounce and carry is consistent and the ball is coming on nicely. It's a pitch of two halves, in the first 10 overs, it's nice to bat on but then it might slow down, thereby challenging the batters. Make the most of the batting powerplay"

    IPL 2021 Live Score: It's Rishabh Pant vs MS Dhoni

    DC vs CSK is a battle of heavyweights as two of India's best wicketkeepers come head to head. Rishabh Pant vs MS Dhoni is an intriguing battle on many levels. But the most important aspect of this match-up, at least in the IPL is their run counter. And at the moment, Pant leads Dhoni by quite some margin. In 12 matches, Pant has scored 337 runs. On the other hand, Dhoni has been miserable with the bat, scoring just 66 runs in 12 matches. Will Dhoni play a big innings today?
