142 kph, full and straight, skewed away to long-on. And Daredevils take away a 34-run win.
11.40pm A very good defence from Daredevils. Chasing a score at the Feroz Shah Kotla can always be tricky and they made it tougher and tougher, taking pace off the ball, using different lines and lengths and clinically executed.
It was a sluggish pitch, which is why you saw many balls go so high in the air. Batsmen met the ball far too early too often, and CSK just could not adjust. Amit Mishra, Sandeep Lamichhane and Trent Boult were outstanding on this pitch. It's a win Daredevils can be proud of, even if it's far too little and far too late.
Harshal Patel is the Man of the Match: "I think bowling is difficult on this pitch, especially with dew. It's just consistency, one over can lose you a game. Four-over spells more important than a 25-run cameo."
Shreyas Iyer: "We were craving for this victory. Really satisfying victory. Lived up to the expectations. Wasn't easy to bat on this wicket, Harshal delivered, that last over was very important to get us to 163 (162). We were never lacking preparations, we were just not able to execute. All three clicked together in the games that we've won."
MS Dhoni: "Wicket got more difficult in the second half. Nobody was middling it, the bowlers bowled well. Difficult to predict how this pitch will behave. You have to be very practical about why something went wrong. We know the reasons. It's important not to look at the points table. The middle order can also get a partnership. Anyone can get an opportunity. Need to be mentally prepared, more than physical. You can give 100 different plans to the bowlers, but sometimes you have to shuffle the bowlers."
Sandeep Lamichhane: "It was slightly skiddy, the way every player contributed, it helped me. They were well set, and I was trying to bowl my best balls."
a slower ball on off, inside-edged to square leg
full down leg, Chahar walks right across and misses a swing. Good non-call, not a wide.
short and wide, under-edged to the keeper for a run.
Smiles for Daredevils, glum CSK faces. Who is second on the table and who is last?
a full delivery outside off, Bravo backs away and chips a lofted drive towards cover. Shankar backtracks and takes it comfortably.
a low full toss down leg, worked to deep square leg for a run.
Just formalities to complete then. CSK need 39 off 6.
length on middle and leg, 134 kph, off the pad to third man. Sensational night for Harshal Patel: 4-0-23-1 and a terrific cameo.
a shortish and wide delivery outside off. And again, Jadeja plays over the line, another dot.
40 off 8.
a shortish delivery outside off, swings too early again, to deep square leg.
Amrit: "RJ and DJ against DD"
a short and wide delivery outside off, cut to deep point for a run. That's the better option in these conditions, can't concede sixes to that.
a short slower ball down leg, worked to short fine leg, who falls over the ball, concedes an additional run.
just clears the boundary. Full on middle and off, Jadeja lofts the ball elegantly. Very high but just enough and clears the straight boundary.
50 off 12 now. CSK have not chased well. Daredevils have bowled very nicely too. DJ and Jadeja.
that's the game! A stunning over this from Boult. Not just because he has conceded just five and taken out MS Dhoni, but his execution has been awesome. A low full toss from Boult, on middle and off. Dhoni broings out his bottom hand and whips the ball flat. But not enough distance. Iyer runs in and takes a good catch.
a full delivery on middle and leg, swung away to deep square leg for a run.
17 off 22 from Dhoni today. Point comes in. Mid-off back.
and now the short ball, around middle and leg. Pulled away to midwicket. Boult goes for the catch but falls over. Long-on throws wildly to the keeper and somehow Mishra gets around to his left to prevent four overthrows. CSK get three
awesome bowling. He has a clear plan (the easy part) and then he executes to Dhoni with deadly accuracy (soooo hard).
More than 20 RPO now.
it's wide, but on a length. Dhoni's eyes light up and he swings, but toe-ends it back to the keeper. DOT.
Boult will bowl 11 of the remaining 17 balls. Third man is up. Point is back. Wide yorkers?
creamed that, but he finds deep midwicket. Back of a length on off, pulled away with fierce power.
55 off 18
Avesh does not go for the catch. The bowler says go for it. Full and wide outside off, Jadeja looks to go over cover but the ball skews off the outside half, to the sweeper cover fielder. On the bounce!
Dhoni has a chat with Jadeja, plausibly telling him six!
and again. Another short and wide slower ball, chopped away down to gully for one.
