Delhi Capitals 139 for 7 (Dhawan 39, Hetmyer 28*, Thakur 2-13) beat Chennai Super Kings 136 for 5 (Rayudu 55, Axar 2-18) by three wickets
After being ahead for most of the contest, the Delhi Capitals seemed to have lost their way in a chase of 137, but Shimron Hetmyer's unbeaten 28 helped them beat the Chennai Super Kings and inch one step closer to a top-two finish.
Shikhar Dhawan had anchored the chase for much of the innings, but when he fell for 39 in a double-wicket over from Shardul Thakur, the Capitals were 99 for 6 with two new batters in the middle.
Hetmyer then took charge as he struck Dwayne Bravo for two fours in his first over. Cricket Tips Free He then smacked Josh Hazlewood for a crucial six, and finally watched from the non-striker's end as Kagiso Rabada flicked one fine for four to seal a three-wicket win in the final over.
Hetmyer also had a massive slice of luck when he was put down by substitute fielder K Gowtham at long-on with Capitals needing 22 off 16. It proved to be one of the key moments in the game. The result meant the Capitals had completed the double over the Super Kings for a second season running.
Despite losing just five wickets in their innings, the Super Kings struggled with the bat after the Capitals opted to field. The opening partnership of Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis did not fire, Moeen Ali fell early, and MS Dhoni struggled to a 27-ball 18. If it wasn't for Ambati Rayudu's unbeaten 55, the Super Kings could have finished with a score much less than 136.
CSK's top order struggles
Anrich Nortje leaked 16 runs off his first over as he erred against Gaikwad. Faf du Plessis then thumped Avesh Khan for two fours in the second over, and another dangerous opening stand loomed. The quick start may have forced Rishabh Pant to bring spin on early, and it worked as Axar Patel struck off his fourth ball as du Plessis pulled one to a diving Shreyas Iyer at deep midwicket. Nortje then returned to bowl a rising, short delivery that had Gaikwad slicing a pull to midwicket. With both openers gone, it was a useful chance - with not a lot of pressure - for the Super Kings middle order to get some batting time before the playoffs.
Robin Uthappa came in at No. 3 on his Super Kings debut after replacing the injured Suresh Raina, but couldn't make much of a mark. After hitting one four early in his innings of 19, he succumbed to an R Ashwin carrom ball. Moeen Ali struggled against spin in the powerplay and was out early too when he flicked Rabada to deep midwicket. After nine overs, the Super Kings were 65 for 4.
Rayudu's rescue act
With a match-winning 32 and an unbeaten 17 in the UAE leg of the IPL so far, Rayudu's impact with the bat has been limited given how solid the Super Kings' top three have been. But this time, he had the opportunity to show he still has the skills and temperament to pull off a rescue act.
He struck Avesh for two fours in the 12th over, then hit a six and four off the same bowler in the 18th, but in between the boundaries were hard to come by. Axar and Ashwin bowled their eight overs for 38 runs, and Dhoni, batting at No. 6, ahead of the in-form Ravindra Jadeja, struggled with his timing. A big 19th over off Nortje allowed Rayudu to raise his half-century and lift the Super Kings to 136 on what Dhoni called a "two-paced surface" after the game.
After Prithvi Shaw was dismissed for the sixth time in the IPL by Deepak Chahar - among the more one-sided match-ups in IPL history - Dhawan chose to attack. The fifth over from Chahar had the umpires bringing out the sanitisers twice as Dhawan smacked big sixes either side of two fours. The 21 runs conceded that early in the chase left the Capitals needing to score at a rate of less than six for the rest of the chase.
However, Dhawan was forced to rein his shots in when Shreyas Iyer was dismissed by Josh Hazlewood and Rishabh Pant was picked off by Ravindra Jadeja as the Capitals stuttered to 75 for 3 after ten overs.
Soon after, the No. 5 Ripan Patel was out for an 18-ball 20, but not before he had hit Jadeja for two fours in one over. That brought some relief to the required rate, but when Thakur's double-wicket over got rid of Ashwin (bowled) and Dhawan (chipped to cover), the game looked to be getting out of the Capitals' grasp.
With Ashwin coming in early, the positive was that Hetmyer had been held back. Axar and Hetmyer knocked singles around early on to take the Capitals closer to their target. At that stage Dhoni could either go to Moeen for an over or Bravo, and he chose the latter for the 18th despite him not bowling all evening.
At the start of the over, the Capitals needed 28 off 18 balls, and Hetmyer clubbed his fellow West Indian for two fours in a 12-run over that included a dropped chance at long-on. That brought the equation down to 16 off 12, but the pressure would be released when Hetmyer thumped Hazlewood for a six in the 19th over.
Needing to defend six off the final over, Bravo started poorly by conceding four runs off one legal ball. Then came the dismissal of Axar. Cricket Betting Id But Bravo then went full at Rabada's toes, and he flicked fine to end the game with two balls to spare.

Chennai Super Kings, in their three-wicket defeat to Delhi Capitals, got to 48 for 2 by the end of the powerplay, but then slowed down so much towards the middle that they did not score a single boundary for the next five overs. Ambati Rayudu eventually broke free at the death to end with an unbeaten 55 off 43 balls, but MS Dhoni could not make up for lost time: he dawdled to 18 off 27 balls before edging behind, having hit zero boundaries. Online Cricket Id This slowdown was not down to lack of intent, coach Stephen Fleming said after the game, pointing out that Dhoni wasn't the only batter who struggled to get the ball away on a challenging Dubai pitch.
"Well, he [Dhoni] wasn't the only one who struggled," Fleming said. "It was a difficult day for strokeplay. When 137  is almost enough, I think it was a tough wicket to score big on in terms of the big shots. So both teams struggled with that towards the end of the innings. Sometimes you set your sights too high, [want] too many, and probably we were only 10-15 runs short of having a match-winning score.
"So, the difficulty at the moment is to assess what the conditions are in all three different grounds and, batting first, getting a score that is par or just above. It was no lack of intent, it was just we had to stabilise after a couple of mistakes and then we were reasonably well-placed for 150. The other thing was their attack bowled very well in the last five overs. They were very smart, so it was tough going.
The result might still have gone Super Kings' way had substitute K Gowtham hung on to a fairly straightforward chance offered by Shimron Hetmyer at long-on, in the 18th over bowled by Dwayne Bravo. The ball burst through Gowtham's hands and rolled to the boundary, leaving Capitals needing 18 off 15 balls. Hetmyer went on to usher Capitals home - and to the top spot on the table. Fleming rued his team's "clumsy mistakes", but said he would rather face these setbacks now than during the playoffs.
"I'd rather have two defeats [Super Kings lost their previous game as well, to Rajasthan Royals] now than in the two semi-finals, if I ever had a wish list," he said. "Today was good, today was scrappy and I think there were a lot of mistakes on both sides. Sometimes, when you've qualified, I know there are one or two [things] that we were trying hard for... and things do change a little bit.
"We try to work very hard on keeping the intensity. We're on the back of three games in five days and a bit of travel, so there were probably clumsy mistakes from us, which was the most disappointing aspect, but in terms of the competition one of the key things is rebounding. Second on the table [with] a chance to get to the top two is still a positive position, but we need to just maintain our intensity or get the flow and rhythm that we had before these two games."
In the previous game he played, against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Bravo came into the attack as early as the seventh over and took 2 for 17 in his four overs, including the prized scalp of Kane Williamson. However, on Monday, that 18th over turned out to be Bravo's first. Fleming reasoned that Bravo's particular strengths and the two-paced Dubai track prompted this late introduction.
"The pitch was very difficult when the taller fast bowlers hit the back of a length hard," Fleming said. "There was inconsistency there. Dwayne Bravo is not really a player who bangs the ball into the pitch. His death yorkers and changes of pace are his key weapons. When there are other resources that are making in-ways and creating opportunity, brought us back into the game... Dwayne's death [bowling] is very effective. CBTF Cricket I thought the tactics were spot on. Throughout the game the faster bowlers banging it on a back of a length had a good day out. That was our tactic and we did we did it really well."
The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 is likely to be held in India and Mumbai is not yet a confirmed venue. The talk among the franchises of the league on Friday (February 26) evening was that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has zeroed in on five venues for the tournament, scheduled to start around April 10.
Chennai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Delhi have been tentatively identified as host cities and Mumbai has been kept as an option pending talks with the Government of Maharashtra. IPL Betting Tips The State Government's apprehensions to allow the IPL are presumably because of the second wave of the Coronavirus that has been felt across the country currently.
"Mumbai is still not final and it is because the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government, headed by Uddhav Thackeray, has not yet given the final go-ahead," an IPL source in knowledge of the development has told Cricbuzz. Maharashtra has been the epicentre of the second wave of the pandemic, having recorded more than 8700 cases as of Thursday (February 25). Before the start of the second wave of the pandemic recently, the BCCI seriously explored the option of hosting the entire tournament in Mumbai itself.
Cricbuzz understands that the matches could take place in a cluster-caravan format, where the teams will be split into two groups and play several matches at the same venues in two different cities before getting re-shuffled and moving to two other venues.
There is a strong chance that Lucknow also could be in the mix as BCCI vice-president Rajeev Shukla has been lobbying hard for the IPL games in the Uttar Pradesh centre but it is not in the initial shortlist yet.
Identifying Kolkata appears to be a curious decision given that the Election Commission of India on Friday (February 26) announced eight-phase polling in West Bengal -- on March 27, April 1, April 6, April 10, April 17, April 22, April 26 and April 29 - with counting on May 2. But a BCCI source said when the IPL could be pulled off without hitches during the 2019 General Election, the Assembly election should not be a big problem. Cricket Betting Tips Most likely, the BCCI will also allow crowds into the grounds, just as it has been doing for the on-going India-England series.

Bangladesh chief selector Minhajul Abedin has warned senior cricketers that their spots in the national team are not to be taken for granted. cricket betting tips The proclamation comes on the back of promising performances by the newcomers who've taken their opportunities well so far.
The arrival of Aminul Islam and Afif Hossain on the international scene as well as the introduction of opener Mohammad Naim is reflective of a strong bench developing. In the ongoing tour of India, Bangladesh have been hit hard by the absence of Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal, but the performances of the rest of the squad has impressed Minhajul.
"Shakib could not play the final match in Ireland. Now we should not think about who's playing and who's not. Whoever plays he has to utilize the platform. No one waits for anyone. When someone gets an opportunity, he has to play good and get established," Minhajul said.
"So what we have been trying to do for the last three months is, our High Performance and 'A' team have played a lot of matches, much like the national team. They [have] already learned about the experience of playing an international match playing there (with A team). Because of this, Biplob, Naim - they did not seem that they were far from the international arena.
"The last three months of nursing them have done enough good. This is a great achievement like beating India on the Indian field," he added.
Bangladesh, who have historically struggled in the T20 format, are now looking more optimistically towards the next T20 World Cup in Australia, with youngsters slated to be at the forefront of c aptain Mahmudullah's project. "See, we have to give opportunities to youngsters so that they can prove themselves. match prediction There are lots of youngsters who are coming in the pipeline and hopefully we can all get together and put a good show tomorrow," said Mahmudullah.
"From the start we have talked about our approach which has to be top, if we lose or win, it doesn't matter, but our approach and attitude has to be correct and in the correct manner so that we can give ourselves a chance to win the game. The names that you have mentioned like Afif, Naim and Biplob are very good youngsters. cricket tips free They have proven their capability to do well in the side so they deserve their places and hopefully they will continue the same way they have started.
"It's not a matter of being big or small. It's a proper opportunity for everyone. Like it is an opportunity for me to represent the national side. When we are in the dressing room or the field, it doesn't affect us [who is big or small]. There is a different kind of pressure and we are only concerned with that and things outside the field don't affect us," Mahmudullah concluded.
Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah said his team was excited at the prospect of clinching its maiden T20I series against India in Rajkot, cricket betting tips having overcome a "mental barrier" during their first-ever T20I win over their neighbours in Delhi.
"The mental barrier you speak of, we might [have] come out of that, even if a little bit. I think in T20 cricket, this sort of chance comes often and it depends on how we keep calm and execute our skills to try and win the game," Mahmudullah told reporters ahead of Thursday's second T20I.
"Obviously, I think, it is a great-great opportunity, especially when you have already won the first game in the series, so it's a great opportunity and I think the boys are feeling energetic about it and hopefully we can put up a good show tomorrow," he said.
Mahmudullah believes a series win at this sensitive juncture in Bangladesh cricket will be a soothing balm following the recent upheavals back home. Bangladesh cricket was engulfed in controversy over the last couple of weeks after several national team players called for an unprecedented strike only to be resolved after Bangladesh Cricket Board accepted most of their 11-point demand list. This was followed by an ICC suspension to Shakib Al Hasan for failing to report corrupt approaches.
"If you concentrate on the recent (developments), whatever is going on in Bangladesh cricket, a series win will be a big boost for Bangladesh cricket and also a big boost for Bangladesh cricket team," Mahmudullah said. match prediction "We have to play good cricket to beat India because we know that they are a good side on their home side and across all over the world, so we have to be on our top from the first ball."
The Bangladesh captain also added that a series win could even pave the way for full-fledged series against India in the future. "India are very strong in their home soil and they have proven it in the last 11-12 years how strong they are. It will be a big achievement if we can win," said Mahmudullah. "We have come to India for the first time to play a bi-lateral series so if we can win it then it will be a big achievement for us," he summed up.
Legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal, on Tuesday (November 5), dismissed talk of the pressure being squarely on India after their first-ever T20 International loss against a depleted Bangladesh side in Delhi. cricket betting tips Ahead of the second game in Rajkot, Chahal instead appreciated the visitors for their spirited effort with both bat and ball.
After restricting India to 148, the visitors chased down the target with three balls to spare. "First of all we should appreciate Bangladesh," Chahal said two days ahead of the second encounter. "They played very well (at Delhi). We know we are (supposed to be) a better team but if you see last couple of matches, Bangladesh have put up a proper fight. Mushfiqur (Rahim) calculated the target very well.
"There is no pressure. It is a bilateral three-match series and not a knockout competition. Obviously one team wins and the other loses. They played well that day."
The fact that Bangladesh went on to win despite not having the services of opener Tamim Iqbal and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan didn't surprise Chahal. "Bangladesh are a very decent team even in their absence," he noted. "All of them are experienced, even their new leg-spinner (Aminul Islam) bowled well. We are not seeing Bangladesh as a weak team just because Shakib and Tamim are not there. They are a good team and are giving us a good fight."
India themselves have a few new faces in their side in the absence of regular skipper Virat Kohli, allrounder Hardik Pandya and pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Chahal is the most experienced bowler in the lineup at the moment but the 29-year-old believes that the IPL experience will come in handy for the rest of the attack while noting that there was no pressure from the team management for the players to perform every single game.
"I think everyone has played about 30-40 IPL matches and they have good experience," he pointed out. "For me it is just that I have played more T20Is. Match Prediction I have only four overs in my quota; they still have 16 more and if the team bowls as a unit then we will win.
"Whoever is in the 11 or 15 knows their role. It's not like there's someone who goes out after playing one game. Everyone's getting their chances and one or two matches go bad for everyone. There's no pressure from the management. They just tell us that we must not repeat our mistakes."
Chahal also went on to brush aside suggestions that he might have increased his pace recently. Even though he picked up the wicket of Mohammad Naim, the visitors were content in playing him out. "Whenever I bowl, I look to vary the pace of the ball," Chahal said. "If you bowl at the same pace, it becomes easy for the batsman.
"Especially it was that kind of wicket, the more you vary the pace, the more difficult it becomes difficult for the batsmen, because it's turning even when you bowl fast. Such wickets, you have to vary your length according to batsman. That apart, my strength is to vary the pace."
