SIX! Ravindra Jadeja to Axar Patel. Quicker ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Out of the park! Axar Patel finishes off in style. Flogged over long-on! Delhi Capitals win by five wickets. For the first time in IPL2020, DC have won while chasing. Shikhar Dhawan top-scored with 101 and Axar Patel played a fine cameo of 21 off just five deliveries. For CSK, Deepak Chahar picked up two wickets. Sam Curran, Shardul Thakur and Dwayne Bravo picked up a wicket each. DC advance to the top of the points table with 14 points and CSK remain sixth. CSK's chances of qualifying for the play-off have gone from mean to bleak. Shikar Dhawan is adjudged as the man of the man for his excellent performance with the bat. Join us for tomorrows match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders. Live from Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Until then, cheers.

Start of Chennai Super Kings Innings. Hello all! A warm welcome to the 34th match of IPL 2020! Dominant Delhi Capitals take on Chennai Super Kings. Live from Sharjah Cricket Stadium, Sharjah. Both the teams have played against each other last month and it was a convincing win for Delhi. Delhi have been in top form this season with a very well balanced squad. Shuffling between the top two placed and have never backed down. CSK, on the other hand are a bit rusty and have just not found the momentum so far. Every match is a do or die match for Chennai and that's pressure on the players to perform. Can the veterans aka CSK compete against the young and vibrant Delhi Capitals? All these questions shall be answered tonight. CSK have won their previous match against SRH where they defended a below-par total to surprise us. Let's not write off the men in yellow as a team with that experience, can turn tables, and make balls disappear. Provided the fact that the battle is in Sharjah, look out for explosions.

Axar Patel finishes off in style. Flogged over long-on! Delhi Capitals win by five wickets. For the first time in IPL2020, DC have won while chasing.

Sam Curran, Shardul Thakur and Dwayne Bravo picked up a wicket each. DC advance to the top of the points table with 14 points and CSK remain sixth. CSK's chances of qualifying for the play-off have gone from mean to bleak. Shikar Dhawan is adjudged as the man of the man for his excellent performance with the bat.
