It was a really tough day at the office for the bowlers in Chennai. They have to go back to the drawing board and revisit where they went wrong after getting the match in their clutches. Their fieldwork was also unimpressive. They dropped Dhawan 4 times and he made them pay badly for it.
But Stoinis died after a cameo of 24. The game then turned to Chennai’s favor, you’d think, but Dhawan was still in the middle. Carey came in after Stoinis fired, but he had minimal impact, leaving for just 4 in the penultimate past. He walked Axar Patel and Dhawan later entered his maiden League. A fantastic knock from him. 17 of the last left. A clean blow from Patel sees Delhi past the finish line.
Delhi started off on a not-so-good note. They lost to Shaw early, in the second ball of the chase. Rahane came in later, looking fine, but left after only 8. Then Dhawan and his skipper tied together a crucial innings. Dhawan managed to trot his third half ton in this edition. Iyer was not up to his usual blistering, probably still recovering from the injury. It was a good partnership between the two before Iyer was fired. Then Stoinis walked, he and Dhawan took the bowlers from Chennai to the cleaners.
What an end to the game! What a fantastic chase it was, especially at the end. A great way to end. Delhi, their march continues. Axar Patel, bow. Delhi is back to the top of the table with 14 points.
19.5 overs (6 runs)
SIX! WOW! Away from here! What a way to end the game! The last ball gets a bit of air from Jadeja, Axar reaches out and launches it long for a huge six. What a win! DELHI WIN WITH 5 WICKETS!
19.4 overs (2 runs)
Two now and scores are equal! Shortish and from the outside, Axar swipes it down the center of the wicket and runs back for a pair.
19.3 overs (6 runs)
SIX! Take that! Busy? What pressure? Axar says I don’t care! It’s short and on the outside, reaching out and slapping it wide, long in front of a biggie. Only need 3 now.
19.2 overs (6 runs)
SIX! ANXIOUS! Axar Patel connects one and sends it over the fence. Jadeja throws it short and round, Axar goes back and pumps it over the center of the wicket. Another six and Delhi will be very close.
19.1 overs (1 run)
Dhawan is flatter and round, and appears to be slogging it on the leg side, but the ball takes the inner half and goes to the fine leg. Just a flight. 15 needed.
19.1 overs (1 run)
WIDE! Hard call! Flatter and from the outside, Dhawan seems to force it on the offside side, but misses. Widely by the referee. Jadeja is not satisfied.
Ravindra Jadeja to throw the final. Interesting phone call from the skipper from Chennai. Can he defend 16 here?
18.6 overs (1 run)
100 for Shikhar Dhawan! Full ball on out, Dhawan hopes in the middle for a single. 17 needed from the final.
18.5 overs (0 Run)
NOT OFF! Flat line as the ball passes the bat! Dhawan stays. Good use of the review. All the way out again, Dhawan goes offside and tries to sweep again. He misses this time and the ball goes behind. Dhoni takes the catch and appeals. The finger goes up. Dhawan reviews right away.
Dhawan chooses to reconsider. He was caught behind by the umpire on the field. Ultra Edge is in, what does it say? Flat line as ball passes bat … NOT OUT. Reverse decision!
18.4 overs (1 run)
They just get a run. Another excellent broad yorker. Axar can only dig it through the side for single.
18.3 overs (1 run)
A! Brilliant bowling from Curran. Nails the broad yorker. Dhawan is doing well to force him to run. 19 in 9. Delhi needs a border.
18.3 overs (1 run)
WIDE! Fire this one way out. Dhawan let it be. Wide.
18.2 overs (0 Run)
POINT! Almost chopped! Very full and wide from the outside, Dhawan seems to reach out and ride, but is given an inner rim. The ball goes past his stumps to the goalkeeper.
Who will walk out to braid now? Axar Patel it is. 2 left-handers back in the crease.
18.1 overs (0 Run)
FROM! CAUGHT! Carey is leaving! Curran with the wicket. A low, full throw around, Carey just throws it, doesn’t do it with much force. He’s just checking his shot. The ball goes to the left side of the long fielder. Faf is the man there. He hardly falls. He moves to the left and takes a tumbling catch. 21 needed in 11 balls.
Sam Curran will throw the pressure overboard. Busy for both Chennai and Delhi. Carey has to give Dhawan the blow and end him in élan. Punts at this stage will not bode well for Delhi. They have to be on their guard there.
17.6 overs (4 runs)
FOUR! Dhawan ends it in style for Delhi. Low full toss off outside, Dhawan moves to the offside position and swipes it across the square leg for a boundary. This is a much needed boundary. Dhawan’s highest total in the Indian T20 League. Just 2 away from his virgin. 21 needed in 12 balls.
17.5 overs (1 run)
Just one run! Length and round off, Carey can only force it to run long. Can Thakur end it well?
17.4 overs (1 run)
Just a few! Full throw off, Dhawan strokes it to the cover of the sweeper for one. Good so far.
17.3 overs (2 runs)
A few! Throwing it low outside, Dhawan drills it in half. Jadhav would do well from a long time to go to the right and keep two for his side.
17.2 overs (1 run)
Scream of catch it but it doesn’t go that far in the air. All around, full-bodied, caressed upwards to the deep center of the wicket. It falls short and they take one.
17.1 overs (0 Run)
Length ball on the leg stick, Carey appears to play on it, but misses to be hit on the thigh.
16.6 overs (0 Run)
Excellent finish from Curran. Yorker, frankly, dug back to the bowler.
16.5 overs (0 Run)
Full throw on the out and center, Dhawan comes off the lane and hits it back to the bowler. If he had stayed where he was, it wouldn’t have been a ball because he was above hip height.
16.4 overs (6 runs)
SIX! My God! Simply brilliant. Full on center and leg, Dhawan presents the bat’s full face and strikes it mightily over a long time.
16.3 overs (4 runs)
FOUR! What a great shot. He’s noticing well, Dhawan. Full ball around it, he lifts it extremely well, gets it between deep mid-wicket and wide long.
16.2 overs (1 run)
Full on off and center, turned to mid-wicket for a run.
16.1 overs (0 Run)
Length ball on top of the stumps, Alex Carey moves across and appears to be paddling to fine leg, but fails to connect.
Sam Curran to throw his third over. 2-0-20-0 so far.
15.6 overs (1 run)
Single to end it over! Ball with good length around it, Carey pushes him to the point calling for a risky run. There is a shy at the bowler’s end, but Jadeja misses. 41 needed in 24 balls.
15.5 overs (1 run)
Rounded ball of good length, struck in half for a single.
DRINKS! Interestingly, just as it looked like these two would steal the match from Chennai, Rayudu drops Dhawan, the 4th time the latter has been shot so far. But then, a few balls later, makes up for it by holding a skier from Stoinis. Chennai would be glad they took out one of the dangerous guys. They have a good chance of taking a win if they can advance Dhawan. The required rate is almost 10 and that will further strangle Delhi and reduce their chances. Alex Carey now walks out to hit.
15.4 overs (0 Run)
FROM! CAUGHT! Rayudu gulps it this time. Another short ball, Stoinis goes for the pull again. Gets a top border this time. The ball flies high towards the center of the wicket. Rayudu moves forward and takes the catch easily. A much needed wicket for Chennai. 43 more needed for Delhi in 26 balls.
15.3 overs (6 runs)
SIX! Here’s the insult to injury! Thakur should have had a wicket to his name on the last ball, but that didn’t happen. And now he’s getting smashed for a six. A short ball rounds off, Stoinis goes for the pull. He doesn’t time it as well as he would have liked, but he has long managed to clear Faf du Plessis.
15.2 overs (1 run)
DROPPED! Dhawan gets a different life. Rayudu is to blame this time. That was an easy opportunity. Shake his head off. Full and wide out, Dhawan drills the ride straight to Rayudu for extra coverage. He gets both hands, but the ball jumps out. How expensive will this be?
15.1 overs (1 run)
Good length ball off outside, pushed once to cover point.
