For Delhi, their dream season, one that took them to unprecedented success could only last so long. Envisioning to reach the echelon for the first time in their IPL life, the Capitals faltered in what was arguably their biggest match in IPL season 12.

Delhi though have no one but themselves to blame for their disappointing show. Coming out to bat first, wickets tumbled one after the other with not one batsman apart from Pant interested in helping the side put on a big total.

Spin did the trick for CSK with the 12 overs of the slower stuff on a turning wicket leaving Delhi beleaguered. A harsh batting performance saw them lose 5 wickets for 65 runs in 7 overs as the middle-order fell apart. After both Shaw (5) and Dhawan(18) walked back inside the powerplay overs, Munro looked to finally get past his struggles against spin with an innings of 27.

However, as he played a silly shot against Jadeja, a needless one given how well he had settled in, Delhi’s inning started breaking apart as well. The team management’s selection left Delhi clutching onto straws as Axar (3) and Rutherford (10) lower down the middle-order proved to be jokes yet again.

In the end it was Pant’s 38 and a few lusty blows from Trent Boult and Ishant Sharma that saw Delhi cross the 140-run mark but with just 147 on the board, the side always knew it was going to be too tough to stay in the game.

While Boult was a sight to behold with the ball, Delhi’s spinners and the rest of the pace attack didn’t even come close to giving him the kind of support he needed at the other. He waged a lone battle, one too hard for him to come out on the winning side in the end with Faf du Plessis and Watson putting on an 81-run stand for the opening wicket.

The partnership took the match away from Delhi and as both the openers reached their 50s, Delhi knew they were doomed towards a defeat. In the end, it couldn’t get any easier for CSK with Delhi trying their best to throw away the match, losing comprehensively as curtains were drawn on a campaign that could have been so much more if only for decisive decision making.
