CSK have moved to the top of the table after a six wicket victory over the Delhi Capitals. Shane Watson and Suresh Raina got the visitors ahead of the required run rate with an array of powerful strokes in the powerplay, allowing MS Dhoni to take control of the chase in typically calm style. Looking back, the turning point of the match came when Rishabh Pant was caught in the deep in the first innings because from there the hosts were fairly tame in the death overs. Dwayne Bravo was the star with the ball, his 3/33 included the crucial wickets of Pant, Dhawan and Ingram and fittingly he was the man to hit the winning runs. We'll be back tomorrow with more IPL action from Eden Gardens as KKR take on Kings XI.

Just a little feather, Rabada grabs a consolation wicket for the hosts. Jadhav wanted a single to allow his skipper to hit the winning runs but he's tickled it into Pant's gloves.
