Starting the tournament with continuous wins, Delhi Capitals (DC), the youngsters' team looks fiery in this season. On Friday, at the Dubai International Stadium, they defeated the “Dad’s Army”, CSK, and secured a comprehensive win of 44 runs.
Let’s just journey through some talk points of the match:
Delhi Opener’s jam
Shaw-Dhawan made a glorious comeback in their second match, consolidating a 94-run stand between them. The duo departed for cheap in their first game against KXIP.
The Prithvi SHOW
India’s 2019 U-19 captain gave DC the start they needed. He struck a half-century and finished his innings of 64 with just 32 balls that just set the ball rolling for the side.
Chawla-Curran bowl magic
Despite the fact that almost all Chennai bowlers went expensive, they both managed to scalp some of DC’s wickets and restrict them a bit early.
Faf- CSK’s Mr Consistent
Yet another poor batting performance from CSK, it was only Faf du Plessis who came out to be the resting pulse for the franchisee. He managed to score 43 off 35 balls and crowned him with the orange cap.
DC’s mindful bowling
All the bowlers did an excellent job in restricting CSK to 131. The slow pitch, with less due, was a blessing in disguise, which made bowlers all the more economical.
