Shikhar Dhawan single-handedly manufactured a run chase for DC to overcome CSK's target, securing the win and going top of the table.
Delhi Capitals (DC) pulled off a thrilling win in the final over in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 game against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Shikhar Dhawan (101* off 58) hit a swashbuckling century to pull DC over the line by five wickets.
CSK won the toss and decided to bat first, trying to put behind their bad record while chasing. Stalwarts Faf du Plessis (58) and Ambati Rayudu (45 off 25 balls) both returned to runs, as Chennai managed a competitive 179 against the injury-depleted Delhi team.
However, DC proved they had enough firepower to rise to the challenge. Swashbuckling Shikhar was ably helped by Axar Patel (21*) and a Marcus Stoinis cameo (24 off 14) to take DC home in style, despite the best efforts of opposite strike pacer Deepak Chahar (2/18).
DC jump to the number one spot on the points table, with seven wins in nine games. CSK sink deeper into a rocky season, currently sitting sixth after winning only three of their nine matches.
