Watson, full in the middle, clips but finds mid-wicket.
2.4 overs (4 runs)
FOUR! Aah … that’s a gem of a shot. Full and round, Watson drives beautifully through it for a border. Just the free flow of the bat there.

Full ball in center, knocks until short mid-wicket and takes one. The fielder there was a little deep, so the single was a possibility.

0.3 over (0 Run)
FROM! CAUGHT! It’s a clean catch. Top work on the fence by Nortje. Opening with Curran does not work for Chennai this time. Tushar with success in the first time. Shortish and out, Curran appears to be pulling, but is given a top edge. The ball balloons high and towards third man. Nortje waits there for the ball. He takes the catch, but realizes the momentum will take him over the ropes. So he manages to lob the ball up and return to pick it up nicely. The referee calls for the help of the third referee while the soft signal is off. Reps roll in and it confirms it’s a clean catch.
The referees want to check that the catch has been cleaned. Did Nortje take it neatly or did he step on the ropes while taking it? No, clean catch, OFF!
0.2 more than (0 Run)
This time he makes room and travels to lift him over the center of the wicket, but he is not hit on the pad. The ball rolls towards offside for nothing.

Turn right! Time for the action! Both referees strode to the center and are followed by the Chennai openers, Sam Curran and Faf du Plessis. Shreyas Iyer talks to his teammates in a group by the ropes before they can take their position on the field. Tushar Deshpande takes the new ball for Delhi. Here we go…
Delhi (unchanged play XI) – Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer (C), Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (WK), Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Tushar Deshpande, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje.
Chennai (plays XI) – Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav (INSTEAD OF PIYUSH CHAWLA), MS Dhoni (WK / C), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Karn Sharma.
Shreyas Iyer, the Delhi skipper, says he is now doing well and is eager to play. On Pant he says they want to give him one more game rest, otherwise it’s the same team. Iyer goes on to state that from the last game he quietly noted that Delhi never gives up no matter what situation they find themselves in. Important to keep that mentality going, he says.
MS Dhoni, the Chennai captain, says there isn’t much grass on the wicket, the question is how much it will slow down. Asserts that the last game was good, with the team not making many mistakes that they normally cannot return to. Adds that in the League there is always pressure and it is okay to be under it sometimes for your own good. Informs that Kedar Jadhav Piyush is coming to get Chawla.
TOSS – The two captains are in the middle for the toss. Yes, Shreyas Iyer is fit, he’s next to Dhoni. The currency moves up and it lands in Chennai’s favor. They will BAT!
The converse is the case for Chennai, a party that is otherwise invincible, tasted defeat by almost everyone, including by a wide margin earlier to Delhi. Can they now pay it back with the same coin? Can they build on the Hyderabad win they had in their last game and take advantage of the surface slowdown? Let’s see how the toss and team updates will drip soon …
Delhi is doing well this season! 6 wins from 8 games. Nothing seems to plague them – hitting and bowling, both are top class and reflect a champion side. How is Shreyas Iyer doing after his shoulder injury in the last game and the update on Pant – 2 things that are very important to everyone when we start this game.
Game 2 on Super Saturday and what do we have here? Iyer and Dhoni close horns. A delightful collision. Sure! Two champion teams and a lot of entertainment in store. Oh … and did we mention Sharjah! Yes, the location where this game is played.
