Chennai Super Kings have destroyed Delhi Capitals by 80 runs in a dominant home display to virtually seal a spot in the top two. They started slowly upon being inserted before exploding at the death, with talisman skipper MS Dhoni blasting a brutal 44 and Suresh Raina making a quality half century. In contrast, Delhi's innings started brightly with runs flowing during the powerplay and Shreyas Iyer looking in prime touch. However, once the spinners started to find some turn the visiting batsmen were left clueless as the Capitals capitulated in remarkable fashion. Ravindra Jadeja picked up 3/9 while Imran Tahir scooped 4/12, with MSD chipping in a couple of audacious stumpings. Another crucial match is on the cards for tomorrow, when Mumbai Indians take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Wankhede Stadium.
