Cricket news - Live Cricket Score - DD vs CSK, Match 5, IPL 2019

CSK win with two balls to spare

Could have been done earlier but CSK get there at last. It got a little tricky there as Dwayne Bravo played and missed the first two balls off Rabada. He then flicked his third ball between deep square leg and fine leg to seal the game. Fitting really, for it was his 3-33 in the first innings that really set this game up for CSK.

MS Dhoni finishes unbeaten on 32 off 35 and the defending champions go two from two. Some start, this!

2 off 6

Dhoni gets a customary six off Mishra in the 19th. Then Rabada gets Jadhav out off the first ball of the final over. Should Kagiso Rabada have bowled the 19th over?!

22 off 18

MS Dhoni has really struggled to play Axar Patel here. Has been a problem for him against left-arm spin for a while. Just 4 runs out off 14 here. Two last-ball singles. CSK still favourites but some of them (Gambhir) would be wondering why this game is still going on.

28 to win off 30

Dhoni and Jadhav finding the going tough to work the singles against the older ball. Two very good overs from Axar Patel has cost DC only six runs. Still fancy CSK here but there is a slight sniff if Rabada can knock one of these over now.

Dhawan drops Jadhav

Should have been taken by Dhawan at mid-wicket. Jadhav bludgeons this short-pitched delivery from Keemo Paul, it's at a fairly catchable height but Dhawan can only parry it and Jadhav gets Dhoni to run for two. It's a second drop of the innings for Dhawan, although the first, a chance at slip, was slightly too difficult.

Raina falls for quickfire 30

A second wicket for Mishra. But CSK are bossing this chase. Raina tries to be cute, but Pant is too smart for him, gobbles up the attempted dab. Less than a run-a-ball left after Raina's 16-ball 30.

A wicket at last - Watson goes for 44

Two sixes and Watto is gone. Hits Amit Mishra to the sight screen and then pulls him over cow corner but when the new ball (yes the crowd didn't return the ball after the second six) is brought in, he looks to pinch another boundary but ends up dragging his feet outside the crease. Mishra has tossed this outside off and Pant whips the bails off!

Watson, Raina sparkle in the PowerPlay

CSK have polished off 58 in the PowerPlay and I'm afraid, DC's fast bowlers just got carried away with all the verbals there. Raina went after Ishant in the latter's third over, plundering 18 runs from it.

Rabada too lost his radar, attempting to bowl too quick. Gets one down the leg side to help Raina pick off another boundary.

Ishant - Watson in verbal battle

Words, words, words - not all of the pleasant kind - being exchanged between Ishant Sharma and Shane Watson. Kagiso Rabada joins in and Iyer has to intervene to calm things down.

The chatter is incessant. Rabada and Watson are talking with umpire Marais Erasmus right within earshot.

Rayudu falls to a short ball

Not the mode of dismissal you would associate with this kind of pitch. Rayudu dances out of the creases, Ishant's bowled him a short ball at 140 clicks that climbs into the batsman, who gets into a tangle and then top-edges a catch to extra cover!

Eventful start to the chase

First over. Imagine a Rayudu cover drive closely followed by a close shave in the slip. And now think Ishant Sharma bowling that over at full tilt, hitting speeds in excess of 140s. Yes, that. And as if that wasn't enough, Watson beats the Axar Patel challenge in the belly next over with a first-ball boundary. And then another boundary before a ball rips past the sweep shot's he's audaciously tried to play.

Does 147 look enough at this point of time? Well...

DC end at 147

Just 29 runs in the last 5 overs. That Rishabh Pant wicket was a massive point in this innings. Bravo returned well after his first over that went for 17. Have DC left about 20 runs out there? Make no mistake, this 147 might just prove to be more than competitive on this surface. But you love the insurance always, don't you?

More wickets as DC lose their way

Jadeja absolutely fires one in that Keemo Paul has no clue about. The off-stump is flattened. Then Bravo comes back to get Dhawan leading-edge one to square leg. End of a battling, but ultimately very important innings from Dhawan. 51 off 47. Could even be a match-winning effort on this one.

Meanwhile, it's a good comeback from Bravo. He went for 17 in the first over. Has given away only 7 in the next two and taken 3 wickets.

Pant falls for 25 off 13

After bottom-handing a six off Harbhajan last over, Pant attempts another unconventional pick-up short off his hip against Bravo. He holes out at deep square leg. Crucial breakthrough for CSK. Here's Ingram!

It's 2 in 3 for Bravo. Gets one ball to stop on Ingram, who chips one straight to Raina at cover. Trouble now

17 runs from Bravo's first over

Some smart batting from Dhawan and Pant here. When there's no boundary on offer, they're nudging the ball to the deep and running twos. But the bigger problem for CSK is Bravo, who was their designated death bowler last year as well. Poor start for him.

Run-rate gets a little nudge

Two successive overs from Tahir and Jadeja bring 10 and 11 runs respectively. Takes DC to 91 for 2 in 13 overs. Time for Bravo - so he will bowl 14, 16, 18 and 20!

Tahir, the man targetted

Shikhar Dhawan picks up 9 off 3 balls from Tahir. Steps out and bludgeons one down the ground and then slogs sweep one through mid-wicket.

Tahir hits back with a superb slider that Iyer goes back to and can't get his bat down in time to save his pads. Plumb LBW.

Iyer breaks the boundary drought

By stepping out and launching Imran Tahir into the stands behind the long-off fence. Much needed boundary (the first six) after 23 deliveries of sedate play.

Now R. Jadeja comes on

Gets one to rip past Shreyas Iyer's outside edge. Dhoni whips off the bails but Iyer is in. This is a attritional period of play right here with spinners bowling well on this surface and the two batsmen struggling to get enough scoring opportunities. 150 should be a good score on this wicket.

9 overs: 55/1 (Dhawan 22, Iyer 7)

End of the powerplay

Dhawan will up the ante now to allow Iyer to get set on a slightly two-paced wicket. Would assume 43/1 is a good PP score here. Here's Deepak Chahar, who is bowling out here.

Fair Point

Chahar strikes

Shaw gets into an awkward position attempting the pull. Played his cards too early when he moved outside leg stump. Chahar followed him and cramped Shaw for room. The pull goes only as far as Watson at mid-wicket.

Shaw: 24 off 16

Harbhajan time in the fourth

Two overs late today, but here's Harbhajan. No concept of seniority respect here on the field as Shaw steps out and hits the veteran offie over mid-off for four. Shikhar Dhawan then premeditates a sweep and picks up another four. Great start from DD.

4 overs: DC 35/0 (Shaw 24, Dhawan 9)

Three in a row for Shaw

Dhoni brings in Shardul Thakur but doesn't give him a slip. Unlikely to get a slip catch on this pitch. Thakur has denied his domestic teammate (Mumbai) any width. But his good start to the over is undone by a couple of short balls that Shaw pulls away and then a Deepak Chahar misfield one at third man to make it three fours on the bounce.

Sticky surface

The second ball of the match, from Deepak Chahar spent a little too much time on the pitch and came on rather belatedly to Prithvi Shaw. But the youngster gets a boundary ball and makes it an 8-run start.

IPL 2018 stat at Feroz Shah Kotla

Batting First: Won - 5, Lost - 2

Toss - DC opt to bat; Bring in an extra spinner

Good toss to win, says Shreyas Iyer, who has stocked his team with an extra spinner as IPL veteran Amit Mishra comes in for Trent Boult. CSK are unchanged. That means we have just 6 foreign players playing this one!

Should Sandeep Lamichhane have played instead of Mishra? Have your say. Send in your Tweets and opinions on the game to @aayushputhran

What about the pitch?

Iyer reckons that the pitch slowed down as the game progressed during the practice matches here. It's what happened in the recent India v Australia match as well. So a good toss to win for Delhi, although Dhoni suggested that he was going to field anyway.

Preamble - DC vs CSK

Have you had enough of the Ashwin-Buttler 'Mankading incident yet? No? It's been nearly 24 hours. All right, how about you gorge on what Harsha Bhogle has written and then run through the rest of the pieces on Cricbuzz?

Alright let's get to the match on hand. DC vs CSK at the Kotla. Both have 2 points on the board and began with rather convincing wins in their respective openers. But given the abjectly one-sided nature of their clash, CSK got to know a little less about their side than did DC, who already find their reputations enhanced many times over after their clinical dismantling of Mumbai Indians.

If you are a stickler for mini match-ups, there are a couple today. MS Dhoni vs Rishabh Pant, Axar Patel vs Shane Watson. This should be a cracker.
