MS Dhoni, Ambati Rayudu's Comical Run-Out Sparks Laugh Riot

  • Irfan Pathan and MS Dhoni

From there, Watson got into a groove and combined with Faf Du Plessis (33) for a 102-run opening stand, eventually reaching his second half-century of the season coming just ten days after blasting 106 against Rajasthan.

Dhoni and Rayudu were at their destructive best as the duo hammered Delhi bowlers towards the end of the innings and accumulated 79 runs in last six overs. Rayudu's innings of 41 helped him extend his lead in the race for the "Orange Cap".

IPL 2018, Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Daredevils at Pune, latest update and cricket score: After 20 overs, Delhi Daredevils finish with 198 runs for the loss of 5 wickets with Vijay Shankar 54 and Rahul Tewatia 3 but the Delhi lacked the steam throughout the innings.

Chasing an improbable 212 for a victory, DD lost wickets at regular intervals and it was their fifth wicket pair of diminutive left-handed wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant and all-rounder Vijay Shankar which took DD within a couple of strikes of victory. He has scored 286 runs in eight matches with an average of 71.50 and a strike-rate of 169.23. DD were 59-2 at the end of the powerplay, added 69-2 in the middle overs, and added a further 70 runs in the final overs.

Delhi fast bowler Avesh Khan has been a revelation this season. Watson (78 off 40) and Dhoni (51* off 22) gave a masterclass in power hitting to fire Super Kings to 211 for four after Daredevils opted to field on a good batting surface. He pulled the short deliveries, flicked the pad-line deliveries and on the odd occasion the bowlers landed full or offered him width, he drove fluently through the off-side.

CSK's captain and Indian legend Mahendra Singh Dhoni ever since the 2015 World Cup has been facing questions about his future and his performances in the last couple of IPLs has been very underwhelming. He would himself be third man out in the fourteenth over.

Most of the CSK batters - Shane Watson, Ambati Rayadu, Dwayne Bravo and skipper Dhoni - are in form.

Watson was lucky to survive a leg-before appeal off the first ball of the match from Trent Boult, with the third umpire adjudging he had got an inside edge, though the replays were inconclusive.

KM Asif picked up two wickets for CSK. On Monday night, both Dhoni and also Rayudu ended up again in it, incorporating 7-9 runs in just six overs to pile more misery on Delhi Daredevils. Captain Dhoni has now scored 3356 runs; he overtook Gautam Gambhir's aggregate of 3518 runs.

In reply, Rishabh Pant made a match of it with a 45-ball 79 after Daredevils were reduced to 74 for four.
