Chennai defeated Delhi for the sixth time in a row at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
At Chepauk, CSK delivered a classic performance. They chose to bat on a difficult surface and scored 167 runs. That proved to be more than sufficient for the hosts. Deepak Chahar snatched out both openers, and Marsh was undone by a terrible mix-up. Even before MSD added spin, the visitors had lost their top three in four overs on a sluggish wicket. Manish Pandey and Rossouw put up 59 runs for the fourth wicket, but it came at a run-a-ball rate. The CSK spinners suffocated DC with spin, and the visitors were unable to recover.
