In match 7 of IPL 2020, Delhi Capitals (DC) beat MS Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by 44 runs to register its second consecutive win in the Indian Premier League at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday. Sent into bat, DC made 175 for three and then restricted CSK to 131 for seven to keep its winning run intact.

After the match, Dhoni said that there was no dew today, but the wicket did slow down in the second half. CSK captain reckoned that we were lacking a bit of steam in the batting and that hurts. 

"The run rate keeps on mounting after such slow starts and adds pressure, we need to figure that out. We need to come back with a clearer picture, looking at the combination. Maybe, the team balance will get better once Rayudu comes back in the next game," Dhoni said.

Biggest defeat for CSK (by runs): 
  • 60 runs vs MI 2013 
  • 46 runs vs MI 2019 
  • 44 runs KXIP 2014 
  • 44 runs vs DC 2020* 
  • 41 runs vs MI 2015

Earlier, Young Prithvi Shaw struck a fluent half-century and shared a a 94-run opening stand with Shikhar Dhawan to guide Delhi Capitals to 175 for three. Shaw made 64 off 43 balls in the company of Dhawan (35 off 27 balls, 3 fours, 1 six) to provide a superb start to DC's innings after being put into bat.

The duo started slowly, scoring just 36 runs of the first six overs of powerplay before opening up to stitch 94 runs for the opening wicket in 10.4 overs.

Shaw got into his stride, hitting two consecutive boundaries off Deepak Chahar.

The Mumbai youngster didn't appear to rush things and played some attractive shots.

Once CSK skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni introduced the spin duo of Piyush Chawla and Ravindra Jadeja in the seventh over, both Shaw and Dhawan went on the offensive.

Chawla, who was taken apart by Sanju Samson in their previous game against Rajasthan Royals, came in for some rough treatment as did Jadeja who went wicketless in his four overs (0/44).

Dhawan after playing second fiddle for a while, joined the party and hit a couple of attractive boundaries and slogged Jadeja's first ball for a six over mid-wicket.

PITCH REPORT

This a great pitch. This wicket is an absolute beauty. The seamers are likely to pick a majority of wickets with balls around the short length area. Big dimensions, difficult to catch under these lights." -- reckon Kevin Pietersen and Michael Slater.


Dew factor in IPL 2020

Asked about the dew factor and the impact on fielding in a virtual press conference, Kaif said dew is there but it's not much at the moment and it may take a while for players to adjust to the conditions.
 
"When we came here about a month back, there wasn't much dew, in the last 8-10 days we have seen it more, especially around 7-8 pm. It gets difficult for fielders as the ball gets wet and heavy. So we have to see players don't get injured," he said.

Kaif on average total in UAE

Kaif said 160-170 will be a par score in Dubai and Abu Dhabi but in Sharjah the ground is small so the par score should be more.
 
"Soon, you may see high scoring matches too," he added.

Here's how Dubai pitch looks like


Marcus Stoinis could be used as floater

On the eve of CSK vs DC clash, Kaif said that Marcus Stoinis may also get a chance at the top. "He is experienced and part of Australia national side for some time now. We need someone like him if the situation demands," he said.

Inclusion of Rahane in DC playing 11

Talking about the opening pair and inclusion of Ajinkya Rahane, he said Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan played well in the last season of IPL and the team may remain the same for a couple of matches.
 
"We didn't play our best in the first game (against KXIP) but now we had days off so we could plan things. Rahane is fantastic but we wanna stick to the same team for a couple of matches," Mohammad Kaif said. 
 

Ishant Sharma injury update

Kaif also updated on pacer Ishant Sharma’s injury who was ruled out of DC’s opening match against KXIP due to back spasms.
 
"Ishant had gone to the ground yesterday, he didn't bowl and is under observation, physio is keeping close eye. We have practice in the evening today and we will take a call (on his inclusion) after that," he said.
 
Commenting on the dew and ground conditions, Kaif said chances of soft tissue injuries are high because players are not used to sand-based grounds
 
"Training sessions are about batting, bowling and fielding but the intensity is not as much as it is during a match, hence the fielding will be difficult," he said.

Ashwin injury update

Giving an update on R Ashwin, who sustained a shoulder injury in Delhi Capitals first match against Kings XI Punjab, Kaif said the off spinner is going for practice and they are monitoring him, adding that Amit Mishra might be included in the playing 11 just in case Ashwin's recovery takes time.
 
“It's unlikely that he will return for the time being, although there's no update on the severity of his injury,” he further said.

WATCH: here's what Mike Hussey said about Ruturaj Gaikwad

Hussey: He is a young kid and been through many in last 15 days. Got Covid infection and then  drafted into the team just at the start of play.

Chennai Super Kings has left for the Sheikh Zayed Stadium for its third IPL encounter.

CSK vs DC preview

After a lacklustre performance against Rajasthan Royals, three-time IPL champions CSK will lock horns with Delhi Capitals (DC) at the Dubai International Cricket stadium today.
 
In its last game, CSK has  suffered a 16-run defeat, and barring Faf du Plessis most of the CSK players failed to make any impact. Moreover, Dhoni's decision to come down the order backfired and the charismatic captain received a backlash from not only fans but also many cricketing greats like Sunil Gavaskar, Gautam Gambhir. Dhoni later clarified on his decision to come lower down the order. The captain himself wasn't happy with the bowlers.
 
Also, the decision to replace an unfit Ambati Rayudu with Ruturaj Gaikwad didn't click as the debutant was back in the dugout without troubling the scorers. Moreover, CSK openers failed in both games and that is another cause of concern for the team management.
 
Sam Curran, who has been promoted up the order, played a cameo in both games but the England all-rounder needs to spend some time in the middle. Dhoni had hit three maximums in the final over against the Royals, but that couldn't win the game.
 
It will be interesting to see how the CSK skipper will now approach the game against Delhi.
 
On the other hand, Delhi were on the verge of defeat in their first game against Kings XI Punjab before Marcus Stoinis rescued his side to push the contest to the Super Over decider. Later, it was Kagiso Rabada who showed his talent with the ball and ensured the night belonged to DC.
