May 11, 2019

Chennai Super Kings the defending champions have entered their eighth IPL final and will face Mumbai Indians tomorrow in Hyderabad.
CSK decided to bowl first when they won the toss and let the DC team score 147 runs for nine wickets. They easily chased down the target with six wickets in hand
Captain MS Dhoni gave the credit of this win to his bowlers and said, "Thanks to the bowling department for where we are this season. I would have preferred it if the openers finished it off. Once they got the required rate below 6 an over, there was no reason to play big shots and get out. They did the hard yards.
DC captain Shreyas Iyer felt that the loss was due to weak batting and said, "None of the batsmen took the initiative to take the team through and there wasn't a partnership building. Disappointing for us but a good learning.
South African player Francois "Faf" du Plessis won the Man of the Match.
DC was appreciated by cricket lovers on social media for the effort
