Chennai Super Kings outplayed Delhi Capitals by 91 runs at the DY Patil Stadium. It was a typical CSK at their very best on Sunday night. MS Dhoni lost the toss but Devon Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad stitched 110 runs for the opening wicket after the four-time champions were invited to bat first in Navi Mumbai. Gaikwad fell for a 41 of 33, but Conway carried on his carnage and scored 87 off 49 balls before becoming the victim of Khaleel Ahmed on a soft dismissal. Shivam Dube's 32 off 19 also helped Chennai's cause, while Dhoni's 21 not out off 8 served as the cherry on the cake. All that happened despite DC's Khaleel picking 2/28 in his four overs. Chasing a target of 209 meant Delhi needed to go all guns blazing from the word go. They had a contrasting start as both their openers - Srikar Bharat and David Warner - got out cheaply. Mitchell Marsh (25 off 20) and Rishabh Pant (21 off 11) did show some glimmer of hope, but once Marsh fell, the entire DC team surrendered with wickets in cluster. On the other hand, CSK registered the biggest win of IPL 2022 in terms of runs and advanced to their fourth win, keeping their slim semifinal hopes alive.

"The thought process was just about keeping it simple. It was just about communicating with Ruturaj (Gaikwad). With (Michael) Hussey, I just discussed about how the surface would be and who the bowlers would be to target. I am just happy to build that partnership up with Rutu, and the way he's playing, he makes my job easier. I have to be true to myself, authentic to myself. I look to play cricket shots and just assess where to put my foot down. I have to give credit to MS (Dhoni), because I got out trying to play the sweep in the last game, and he told me to look to play straight."
Dwayne Bravo puts the final nail in Delhi Capitals' coffin. He cleans up Khaleel Ahmed... And with this, CSK win the game by 91 runs.
Dwayne Bravo also gets one wicket. Shardul Thakur (24 off 19) is out. Delhi Capitals need an improbable 92 in 15.
DC 117/9 (17.3)
In case, CSK wish to finish this game and DC's innings before the stipulated 20 overs, they need two more wickets. DC, on the other hand, need 100 off 18.
DC 109/8 (17)
Delhi Capitals need 107 runs in 24 balls. CSK are running towards a big win. This will boost their net run rate to a great extent. Practically, their playoff chances seem over, but in cricket you never know. Because mathematically they are still in the race.
DC 102/8 (16)
Kuldeep Yadav is out! Simarjeet Singh gets the wicket. DC are eight down and they need 110 in 28 balls. Only 17 runs have come off the last 5.2 overs. Since the wicket of Mitchell Marsh, CSK have dictated terms. And now a victory to them seems only a matter of time.
DC 99/8 (15.2)
Delhi Capitals need 118 more in 42. This match is slipping out of their hands. Or has it slipped already? Whatever, but if they wish to stand a chance, they need to go bonkers from here. But who will play that innings for them? Let's see if Shardul Thakur can give them some hope.
DC 91/7 (13)
Rovman Powell is out! Another DC batter walks back to the dug out. Wickets are falling in clusters for DC, they have lost five wickets in just 13 runs. This is poor batting from them and meanwhile, it's really good captaincy and bowling.
DC 85/7 (10.5)
Mukesh Choudhary has cleaned up Axar Patel (1 off 3). DC are blowing up a good start here. First, Moeen Ali did the damage with three wickets in his two overs, and now Mukesh has made things further tough for Delhi, who need 127 more in 59 balls.
DC 82/6 (10.1)
Moeen Ali is damaging DC to a great extent. Is this the match-turning over CSK needed? From 75/3, DC are 81/5 in a span of just four balls.
DC 81/5 (9.4)
Moeen Ali has got the wicket of Rishabh Pant. What a waste of a good start from Pant. He has chopped an ordinary delivery on his stumps. The DC skipper departs on 21 off 11.
DC 75/4 (9.1)
Moeen Ali provides the much-needed breakthrough to CSK. He has trapped Mitchell Marsh (25 off 20). It was a tossed up delivery from Moeen but he smartly decided to keep it away from Marsh, who eventually hit into the hands of Ruturaj Gaikwad at long-on.
DC 72/3 (7.3)
Runs are coming for DC, irrespective of the fall of wickets. They got 12 runs off the last over and 39 off the last year. The required run rate (10.62) is also under control.
DC 71/2 (7)
While CSK got two wickets in the first powerplay, they also leaked 59 runs. DC's counter-attack has kept them alive in this chase. Rishabh Pant is looking extremely good today, so is Mitchell Marsh... Game is on!
DC 59/2 (6)
Rishabh Pant is not here to waste time. He hit Maheesh Theekshananfor two consecutive fours before getting an edge and earning a four again. DC don't have a choice, they have to keep scoring runs at a brisk pace.
DC 48/2 (5)
CSK strike again! This is their night. David Warner is the latest one to depart. The southpaw attempted a reverse-sweep on the ball of Maheesh Theekshana. He missed it and the ball hit his thigh. Umpire gave it out but Warner reviewed it. Ball tracking found it to be clipping off stump. Poor Warner.
DC 36/2 (4.2)
This one comes from the middle of the bat of David Warner. It was short and Warner pulled it over square leg comfortably for a SIX. DC need him to keep going, if they wish to stand a chance in this chase.
DC 26/1 (3)
Brilliant captaincy from MS Dhoni and equal amount of credit to bowler Simarjeet Singh. Srikar Bharat was struggling to time the ball so a slip was put in place for him and the batsman eventually mishit the ball which hit his body after edging the bat and went into the hands of Moeen Ali at first slip.
DC 16/1 (1.5)
David Warner takes the strike, Srikar Bharat is his partner. Mukesh Choudhary will bowl the first over. Get set... Go!
That's was a good first over from Mukesh Choudhary. He got some swing and kept his lines tight. He cramped Warner for room and even produced one edge off his bat, but the ball flew over third man boundary for a SIX. Cricket is such a cruel game at times, especially for the bowlers.
DC 8/0 (1)
That's a good last over from Nortje. He missed a hat-trick but conceded only 9 runs off it. On the other hand, CSK would be happy with their batting effort. MS Dhoni's 21 not out off 8 also helped the team's cause. Khaleel Ahmed returned 2/28 but rest of the DC bowlers failed to make an impact. Nortje got three wickets but conceded 42 runs in his three overs.
Another slower ball from Anrich Nortje and he gets the wicket of new batsman Robin Uthappa. He gets two in two. Can he get a hat-trick? MS Dhoni will still be at the non-striker's end, courtesy the new rules.
CSK 203/6 (19.3)
Moeen Ali has been trapped by Anrich Nortje. He departs on 9 off 4 balls.
CSK 203/5 (19.2)
Khaleel Ahmed bowled a slower delivery outside off to MS Dhoni. He almost beat him with the change of pace, but Dhoni still managed to power it over long-off for a SIX. This is unfair!
CSK 199/4 (19)
Another wicket for Khaleel Ahmed. He has trapped Ambati Rayudu (5 off 6) now. The southpaw has been extremely good today. He has been a class apart.
CSK 187/4 (18.2)
MS Dhoni hit a SIX on the second ball of his innings and then a FOUR to Mitchell Marsh. He has come set from the dressing room. Fans must be eagerly waiting to see more such shots from him.
CSK 183/3 (18)
Mitchell Marsh bowled it way outside off stump to Shivam Dube and the southpaw hit it from the lower end of his bat to long-off where David Warner took a the catch on reverse cup. Dube departs on 32 off 19, an innings laced with two sixes and as many fours.
CSK 170/3 (17.1)
Devon Conway is out! This is brilliant bowling from Khaleel Ahmed. He had bowled a yorker to Conway at the start of the over that went for a single, but now he changed his length and mixed his pace. The overall change saw Conway missing a premeditated lap shot and edging the ball to Rishabh Pant on leg side.
CSK 169/2 (16.3)
Shivam Dube got dropped in the over of Shardul Thakur and then hit the bowler for two consecutive SIXES before hitting a FOUR on the last ball. CSK get 19 runs off the over. A total of over 200 seems minimum from here for them.
CSK 167/1 (16)
Shivam Dube is finding it hard to get his shots from the middle of his bat. He is 14 off 12 and needs to score at a quicker pace or the pressure will see Devon Conway gifting his wicket.
CSK 148/1 (15)
Last over from Mitchell Marsh had no boundaries in it, yet DC conceded nine runs off the over. They need to control the controllables at least to make sure they don't have to chase a gigantic big total.
CSK 140/1 (14)
Devon Conway is not only hitting boundaries, but also rotating the strike beautifully. He is striking at a rate of 197.56 but stats may give the wrong description of his innings. The southpaw is taking minimum risk and getting maximum output.
CSK 131/1 (13)
Ruturaj Gaikwad is out! Here is the first breakthrough for Delhi Capitals. They were struggling with the ball as Gaikwad too was dictating terms alongside a dominant Devon Conway, but this wicket will give some respite to DC. Anrich Nortje pitched a short ball that rushed onto Gaikwad. The batsman failed to connect properly on the pull and got catch out.
CSK 110/1 (11)
Devon Conway, you beauty! The New Zealand southpaw is making batting look so easy that even his partner Ruturaj Gaikwad would envy him at the other end. He hit Kuldeep Yadav for three back-to-back FOURS in the extra cover region. Kuldeep has conceded 34 runs in this two overs, courtesy the carnage from Conway.
CSK 100/0 (10)
8.4 - A single and Devon Conway races to his third consecutive IPL fifty. This is what you call form. He had scored 56 and 85 not out in the previous two games for CSK and now races to another fifty in 27 balls.
CSK 84/0 (9)
7.4 - SIX! This is what you call, form and confidence. Devon Conway dances down the track to hit Kuldeep Yadav for a SIX over deep mid-wicket.
7.5 - SIX Again! This time Conway sweeps Kuldeep for a SIX towards square leg. This player is special. He knows his areas so well.
7.6- Four! Conway is making mockery of the second-highest wicket-taker of IPL 2022. This is superb batting.
Conway has come into this game on the back of consecutive fifties and his performance is saying it all.
CSK 79/0 (8)
Ruturaj Gaikwad hit Shardul Thakur for consecutive fours in the final over of the powerplay. Both the CSK openers are looking in sensational touch. This is an alarming sign for DC. They need a wicket... Sooner!
CSK 57/0 (6)
Here are some runs for CSK. Devon Conway comes down the track twice and hits Axar Patel for SIXES on both the occasions. The first one went over long-on, while the second one went over deep mid-wicket despite a fielder on the boundary rope. He is making a decent start look solid now. 14 runs came off the over.
CSK 43/0 (5)
Only five runs came off the second over of Khaleel Ahmed. He has been economical today so far. Got some good help off the surface and this kept both the DC openers quiet. On the other hand, the duo of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway has given him the much-deserved respect.
CSK 29/0 (4)
2.1 - A typical Ruturaj Gaikwad shot. He dances down the track to Anrich Nortje and slams him over long-on for a SIX. Oh, the confidence!
That was a costly over from Nortje as he conceded 15 runs off it.
CSK 24/0 (3)
Ruturaj Gaikwad takes the strike, Devon Conway is at the other end. Shardul Thakur has the new ball in hand. Here we go!
Five runs came off the first over. This pitch has something for the pacers, at least at the start of the innings.
CSK 5/0 (1)
Chennai Super Kings batters need to play Kuldeep Yadav well. With 18 wickets from 10 matches, he is the highest wicket-taker for Delhi Capitals and second-highest overall in IPL 2022. He is only behind Rajasthan Royals’ Yuzvendra Chahal (22 wickets in 11 matches).
