Delhi Capitals (DC) defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by five wickets in the 34th game of the 2020 Indian Premier League (IPL) at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Saturday. Opener Shikhar Dhawan was the hero of the night who completed his first century in the IPL of 57 deliveries, remaining undefeated until the end to see his side across the line. However, Dhawan got some invaluable support from all-rounder Axar Patel who beat 21 runs on five deliveries, including three sixes in the final against Ravindra Jadeja. The chase of 180 could be very, very difficult if not for some superb gameplay from the duo. Previously, the Chennai-based franchise posted a total of 179 runs for the loss of four wickets in 20 overs, with South African batsman Faf du Plessis finishing as the highest points scorer. Du Plessis hit 58 runs from 47 deliveries in an innings consisting of six boundaries and two sixes. Anrich Nortje was the bowlers’ favorite, good for two wickets. (SCORE MAP)
