VIDEO : Unplayable Ball By Nortje to Bowled Faf du Plessis

MS Dhoni-captained Chennai Super Kings 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.

A fine partnership between Hetmyer and Rishabh Pant has done the job for the Capitals who were reeling at four down post the half-way mark. The southpaw duo did well to not succumb to pressure and kept churning in the ones and twos to keep the scoreboard ticking before teeing off with boundaries towards the end. A just above par total here and CSK will have to fight it out to get into the final on their first attempt.

Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant struck half-centuries as DC posted a competitive 172/5 against CSK in Dubai.

Nortje cleans him up with a ripper! What a beauty from Nortje to get his Proteas senior. Nips it in sharply and prompts du Plessis to play down the wrong as the ball crashes into the middle stumps. Massive jolt this for CSK

That’s a snorter from Anrich Nortje, at 147.5 kph. He hurls it in the line of the stumps, du Plessis stays rooted inside the crease as he attempts to work it on the leg side. The ball lands, skids on at a brisk pace, beats the inside half of his bat and cannons onto the stumps. Anrich Nortje is all pumped up, a perfect start for Delhi!
