Delhi Daredevils were forced to poor fortunes after they ended up losing last night’s fixture against table-toppers Chennai Super Kings in a thriller. Delhi, who were in the game till the penultimate end failed to get over the rope, succumbing to their sixth defeat in eight matches.
The winning skipper, MS Dhoni in a wonderful gesture, was spotted sharing tips post-match to Delhi’ Rishabh Pant. A few days earlier, the former Indian captain was seen sharing techniques and concepts to young MI gloveman, Ishan Kishan. This time around it was the Delhi wicketkeeper, who received wisdom from one of the iconic glovemen in the game. IPL has been clinical in bringing players together and once again it was showcased by Dhoni’s interaction with the youngster.
The photo of the duo was shared by CSK on their official Twitter handle. The image was captioned saying, “The feedback after the match. As always. Love you #Thala! #WhistlePodu #yellove #CSKvDD”

Chennai Super Kings openers Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis looked in blazing form as they took the hosts to a flying start. Watson (78) and Faf du Plessis (33) provided a perfect start before skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (51 not out) and Ambati Rayudu (41 not out) finished the proceedings in style to power Chennai Super Kings to 211/4 against Delhi Daredevils. The Delhi Daredevils bowling did not work as Iyer was left with no choice but experiment bowlers.
In reply to CSK’s mammoth 211/4, DD never really got off to a steady start as they lost wickets in at regular intervals, which led the required run-rate to creep up. However, Rishabh Pant (79 off 45) and Vijay Shankar (51* off 31) ensured Daredevils get closer to the target but it was not enough as they ended at 198 for five.
