Today in the 11th match of DLF IPL, Delhi Daredevils showed superb all round performance and defeated Chennai Super Kings convincingly by 8 wickets.
Earlier Delhi Daredevils won the toss and elected to field first. M Vijay got run out without even facing a single ball on the very first ball of the innings. All CSK batsmen got starts but none was able to convert it into a big score. Wickets kept falling at regular intervals, thanks to superb bowling and fielding by Delhi Daredevils. R Jadeja the star of last match also failed this time and finally CSK were able to post just 110/8 in 20 overs.
Chasing 111 runs to win, Delhi got off to a good start with Naman Ojha and Virender Sehwag scoring runs with ease. Both the batsmen in quick succession but Kevin Pietersen (43 not out off 26 balls) and Mahela Jayawardene (20 not out off 21 balls) played sensibly and took Delhi to victory with more than 6 over spare.
Morne Morkel was awarded man of the match award for his superb bowling.
