DD vs CSK, IPL 2018 Cricket Score: Chennai Super Kings elected to bowl in a rare final-week fixture that has no bearing on playoff qualification. However, at stake for MS Dhoni’s side is a top-two finish. They brought in Lungi Ngidi for his fourth game this season. That meant time on the bench for England allrounder David Willey, who has proved expensive in his previous two outings.
Delhi Daredevils, meanwhile, went in with just three overseas players: Glenn Maxwell, Sandeep Lamichhane and Trent Boult. They’re also fielding two India Under-19 players in Prithvi Shaw and Abhishek Sharma in what is a sign of looking to build for 2019. The core of their batting remains Indian with Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant also in the mix along with allrounder Vijay Shankar.
With just three wins in the competition, Daredevils have only pride to play for, and are returning to action after a five-day break. Among their changes were Maxwell and Avesh Khan returning for opener Jason Roy and South Africa fast bowler Junior Dala, who was signed as Chris Morris’ replacement.
Here are DD vs CSK Cricket Score:
8:45 PM: Ngidi to Iyer, OUT, cleaned him up! Iyer tries to make room and cut, but Ngidi bowls straight on off stump. Iyer misses, Ngidi hits. Crashes into the top of off stump
8:15 PM: Chahar to Iyer, no run, out with a direct hit! Good from Pant to trust his partner. But maybe he shouldn’t have. A good length delivery down leg, Iyer pushes to mid-on, calls for one, realises his weight is on the back foot so he says no very late. But Pant is already down, he turns back and dives back. But the throw from the fielder is not accurate so he’s fine. His wrist is not though. Some damage to his hand.
Here are DD and CSK squads:
Daredevils: PP Shaw, SS Iyer (capt), RR Pant (wk), GJ Maxwell, V Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, HV Patel, A Mishra, S Lamichhane, TA Boult, Avesh Khan
CSK: SR Watson, AT Rayudu, SK Raina, MS Dhoni (capt, wk), SW Billings, DJ Bravo, RA Jadeja, Harbhajan Singh, DL Chahar, SN Thakur, L Ngidi
