  • MS Dhoni will be wary of a rejuvenated Delhi Daredevils

"The back is bad, but nothing much can be done". He could have had the wicket of Dhoni but Colin Munro dropped him at mid-wicket in the 19th over. Rishabh Pant hit a fine 79 and Vijay Shankar added 51 to ensure that the Daredevils got closer to the target but it was not enough as they ended at 198 for five.

Lungi Ngidi dismissed the southpaw but Vijay Shankar wasn't done yet. Faf was the first one to depart at 33. But "Thala" has literally roared this season and on Monday against a hapless Delhi attack, it was Dhoni of old. Thanks to Ngidi's controlled last over, CSK beat DD by 13 runs to regain their top spot on the points table. Fails to get back in time and Dhoni does the rest.

WICKET! Banged in short, Prithvi Shaw plays across the line but mistimes his shot.

This was Chennai's sixth win in the tournament in 8 games and sixth defeat for the Delhi Daredevils in as many matches. With the new ball at the other end, KM Asif, an MRF Pace Foundation trainee who impressed in the domestic T20s for Kerala with raw pace, also cranked it upwards of 140 clicks. "That ability to come at four and five and score a boundary straight-away, not a lot of people can do that", Du Plessis said.

Dana White vows that that the UFC will punish its superstar ... but only after a New York City court weighs in on him first. McGregor once said that he'd be willing to travel to Russian Federation for a fight with Nurmagomedov.

Dhoni said having Ambati Rayudu in the middle and Faf opening the innings gave more stability to the line-up.

RUN OUT! What happened there?

Rayudu departed in the last over in run out in comical fashion. No co-ordination whatsoever and the Hyderabad batsman has to sacrifice his wicket. The Uttar Pradesh batsman was bowled by off-spinner Maxwell. Full and wide outside off stump. "He has got a lot of options, so it makes life hard for a bowler and a captain because he can hit any ball to wherever he wants to". Finds the man at long off.

Watson and du Plessis provided CSK with an exceptionally start with the bat after 100 runs of partnership.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) defeated Delhi Daredevils (DD) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Monday.

MS Dhoni-led CSK are placed on the second spot in the IPL table and can not afford a slip up here with teams fighting it hard to occupy the play-offs spot.

The coaching staff will be particularly pleased with the way CSK won this match.

Iyer was the star of the show in his first game as skipper with a magnificent 93 against KKR, but he was run out for only 13 and Delhi were 74-4 when Glenn Maxwell fell cheaply.

Chicago Bears GM Pace addresses two areas of need in Round 2
The Bears have been widely praised for the improvements they've made this offseason, first in free agency and now in the draft. It's hard to quarrel with the rating, considering Pace's Bears teams have won 14 games in his three seasons.

At the top of the order, Watson was unstoppable after Boult nearly had him trapped in front of the stumps with a pacy inswinger at the start of the match.
