CSK suffered a consistent defeat in the IPL against DC, with the latter winning by a margin of 44 runs. The Chennai-based franchise was restricted to 131/7 after setting a target of 176 runs. South African pacers Cagiso Rabada and Enrique Narje were the key performers for the Delhi Capitals for three and two wickets with the ball, respectively.
Shaw was the highest run-scorer for DC, scoring 64 runs for 43 runs in an innings with the help of nine fours and a six. Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant also contributed significantly, helping DC reach 175/3 after being sent to bat by CSK.
The Delhi franchise remained unbeaten in the IPL 2020, following this win, registering a Super Over win in their opener against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). CSK batsman would be optimistic for Ambati Rayudu to return to fitness, a clinical performance during the only win against defending champions Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2020 opener.
