Chennai Super Kings captain M S Dhoni won the toss and opted to field in Dubai after winning the coin toss against Rishabh Pant and his Delhi Capitals. Dhoni revealed that CSK are playing an unchanged XI, which means still no Suresh Raina for them. On the other hand, and as expected, Ripal Patel of DC made way for an overseas all-rounder. This time, Tom Curran gets a game.
Privthvi Shaw scored brilliant half century took just 27 deliveries to reach there. And this is the first fifty from a DC batter in the UAE leg of IPL 2021.
Prithvi Shaw is in great form of his life for Delhi in the opening slot
He was batting beautifully but ends throwing up his wicket. He lifts a tossed up delivery towards long-off and Faf du Plessis makes no mistake. He scored 60 off 34 with seven fours and three sixes.
Jadeja to Shaw, Lofts it over cover and du Plessis holds on to it at long-off! DC in big trouble now. Shaw absolute nails the lofted cover-drive as he finds the perfect delivery for it. du Plessis scampers from a straighter position to hold onto the ball.
Another opportunity will get for both team ,if any team loses the match .Chennai and Delhi both struggle to get in to top two position of points table of Indian premier league 2021
