Devon Conway scored a blazing 87 as the Chennai Super Kings thumped the Delhi Capitals by 91 runs at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai.
After being asked to bat first by DC skipper, Conway and Ruturaj Gaikwad got Chennai off to a brilliant start. The duo featured in an 110 run stand for the opening wicket before the latter mistimed a pull off Anrich Nortje to Axar Patel at midwicket for 41.
Conway was involved in yet another 59 run stand alongside Shivam Dube. New Zealand left hander Conway’s brilliant knock ended when he edged an attempted ramp off Khaleel Ahmed to wicket keeper Rishabh Pant. The left-hander smashed 87 runs off just 49 deliveries, with 13 boundaries and 5 sixes.
Dube perished for 32 while trying to taking on Mitchell Marsh, caught at long on by David Warner.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the end scored a blistering 8 ball-21 to take Chennai to a gigantic total of 208/6 in 20 overs.
For Delhi, Anrich Nortje ended up with figures of 3/42.
Chasing 209, Delhi Capitals opened the innings with Srikar Bharat along side David Warner. However the former was caught at slip by Moeen Ali, while attempting a pull off Simarjeet Singh for 8.
Mahesh Theekshana then got into the act by trapping Warner leg before wicket for 19.
Mitchell Marsh and Rishabh Pant put on 36 runs for the third wicket before Ali pegged the Capitals back with wickets of Marsh and Pant in succession.
The DC lost wickets at regular intervals as they were bundled out for a 117 in 17.4 overs.
