IPL 2023: CSK defeat Delhi Capitals by 27 runs

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) recovered from a slow start on a sluggish pitch to reach a score of 167/8 in 20 overs.

DC faced similar challenges on the difficult pitch, losing early wickets including David Warner, Phil Salt, and Mitchell Marsh.

DC could only manage a score of 140/8, failing to recover like CSK, and consequently, they suffered a 27-run defeat.

Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, and Lalit Yadav troubled the CSK top order with their spin bowling, causing them to struggle at 77/4 in 11 overs.

MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja formed a vital partnership, scoring 38 runs in just 18 balls for the seventh wicket.

Mitchell Marsh ended the innings on a high note for DC, conceding only seven runs in the final over.
