Talking about the only match of the day, DD pulled off a big upset when they beat CSK by 34 runs at the Ferozshah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi.

Already out of play-off contention, nobody expected DD to get the better of CSK but the hosts’ bowlers came good to upset the odds. However, the foundation of the DD win was laid by Harshal Patel’s cameo.

Chasing 163 to win, CSK started well and at one time were nicely placed at 70/1 in 9.5 overs but Ambati Rayudu (50), Suresh Raina (15) and Sam Billings (1) departed in quick succession to hand over their advantage.

DD’s spinners especially did well and made scoring extremely difficult for CSK, who were before long out of the contest. MS Dhoni scoffed 23 balls for 17 runs and that said it all.

CSK could only go as far as 128/6 to concede the contest.
