Match report-->> Chennai Break Delhi Hearts Win by One Run in Ipl-8

Over 1: Ashish Nehar’a first over goes decent giving just four runs. DD opener Mayank Agarwal hits him for a four on the fourth delivery.

Over 2: Mohit Sharma bowls from the other end. Another nine runs off the over, when the required run rate was a little more than seven.

Over 3: Nehra strikes twice in his second over, packing up both DD opners CM Gautam and Mayank Agarwal.

On a length around off, Gautam looks to go big but ends up giving an easy catch to Bravo at mid on who makes no mistake and takes the catch with ease.

A slower delivery outside off, Agarwal looks to play at it but gets a healthy outside edge to it. Dhoni takes an easy catch behind the wickets and the crowd has gone berserk. A huge roar by them!

Over 4: Morkel hits Sharma for two fours, as DD bags 13 runs off this over.

Over 5: Nehra doing the job for MS Dhoni. He picks a third one and this time the 20-year old Shreyas Iyer has to depart. Good length delivery around off, Iyer looks to pull this one but gets a leading edge to it. The ball balloons up to covers, du Plessis moves to his left and takes a fine catch there to get rid of the youngster.

Over 6: Mohit bowls a brilliant over for CKS giving just one run. From here, Delhi needed 114 runs off 14 overs.

Over 7: Morkel hits Ishwar Pandey for a four in the bowler’s first delivery. That is followed by a two and a single, to complete the over with seven runs.

Over 8: Four singles off this over, DD needed another 100 runs from here with seven wickets in hand.

Over 9: A boundary and three singles, another seven runs for Delhi Daredevils.

Over 10: DD managed a four almost every over. Morkel hits the short ball in front of the point in the over’s fourth delivery. Ashwin gave nine runs in his second over. CSK needed a wicket here.

Over 11: Another four and it was Jadhav this time. Eight runs for Delhi with needing more 76 runs off 54 balls and RR is below seven.

Over 12: Dhoni chooses Ashwin to continue. However his most trusted bowler again fails. Seven runs off that over, but still no wicket.

Over 13: Darren Bravo is brought into the attack. 5 runs off it, still no wicket for CSK. Morkel and Jadhav were leading DD to their first victory in this tournamnet.

Over 14: Mohit breaks the partnership of Morkel and Jadhav. Short of a length delivery outside off, Jadhav cuts this one straight to the fielder at point. Jadeja makes no mistake and grabs it with ease at point. A decent partnership comes to an end. DD needs 54 off 36 balls with six wickets in hand.

Over 15:  Huge roar in the stadium as Yuvraj Singh goes next! DD in trouble as they lose their fifth wicket.

Over 16: Pandey is brought back and we have a wicket here. Back of a length around off, Duminy looks to guide this one as well but ends up chopping it on the stumps. That's a very important wicket for Chennai.

Over 17: Morkel attacks Bravo on the first delivery off this over and this is followed by three singles and a two-run. DD manages nine, needing another 32 off last three overs.

Over 18: WICKET! Ashwin STRIKES! Full and straight, Coulter-Nile looks to slog sweep but misses. The ball goes on and disturbs the furniture. The all-rounder could add only five runs with the bat. Delhi lose their seventh wicket!

Over 19: Another WICKET! Short delivery around leg, Mishra lets it go through. Morkel wants a bye and calls for it, Dhoni throws it back to Nehra who takes off the bails at the bowler's end. Mishra is the eighth wicket down. DD need 19 runs off the last over.

Over 20: Morkel managed 17 runs but failed to hit the ball into the stands on the last ball when DD needed seven runs. Nevertheless, he had to settle for a four.


The first innings of the second match of the 2015 Indian Premier League, Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Daredevils saw 3 sixes, 13 fours and seven wickets. The home team registered a total of 151 against JP Duminy’s team.

Over 1: Opener Dwayne Smith gave Chennai a flying start by smashing three fours and Albie Morkel disppointed DD fans by giving away 16 runs in the very first over.

Over 2: Australia’s Nathan Coulter-Nile made the important breakthrough by removing T20’s world number one batsman Brendon McCullum after he hit a four. CSK finished the second over with ten runs. Kiwis skipper went for 4.

Over 3: Maharashtra’s Domnic Joseph made his IPL debut in this match. The first over of his spell went for 10 runs. Smith hit him for a boundary in the fourth ball of the second over.

Over 4: Coulter-Nile bowled a brilliant over by giving just two runs and also sending back the newly married and the most succesful CSK batsman Suresh raina back to the pavilion. Raina got dismissed for a cheap score of 4.

Over 5: After Raina’s wicket, Du Plessis and Smith slow down a little. They take two singles in the first three bowls before striking a boundary each to finish the over for 11 runs.

Over 11: Skipper Duminy takes the ball himself. CSK manages just six runs off it.

Over 12: Jadeja hits the much-needed six in the second ball of the over. However, Mishra makes a good comeback by giving just two runs off the next four balls.

Over 13: Captain strikes! Floated ball on middle, du Plessis makes room and looks to clear long off but does not get the elevation as he finds the fielder. Shreyas takes a good catch near the ropes to send du Plessis packing. The South Africa departs for 32 (24).

Over 14: Morkel bowls a decent third over, giving just six runs-- a boundary and two singles.

Over 15: With just six overs remaining CSK wanted Dhoni and Jadeja to play their original game. Nevertheless, Tahir made sure the big hitters were under control. The home team managed just five runs off that over.

Over 16: Bowls it slower through the air as Jadeja decides to take on Mishra with a dance down the track and wild heave. He is beaten by the spin as the keeper calmly gathers the ball and stumps him out. CSK lost their fifth wicket. Jadeja went for 17.

Over 17: Another wicket in the very next over. Angled on a length on middle and leg, Bravo stays in his crease and with a slight leap looks to flick it but misses and the ball hits him on the pads. A huge appeal for LBW  by Joseph and after a while the umpire gives him out.

Over 18: Ashwin hits a four on the last ball of the over. CSK’s last boundary was now 23 balls old.

Over 19: After the penultimate over, CSK put 134 runs on board. They needed skipper Dhoni and Ashwin to fire on the last over.
