    Delhi Capitals registered their first win of IPL 2024 after they defeated Chennai Super Kings by 20 runs in Visakhapatnam. Opting to bat first, DC posted a whopping total of 191/5 in 20 overs with David Warner and Rishabh Pant hitting half-centuries. Later, DC restricted CSK at 171/6, despite MS Dhoni‘s quick show off 37 off 16 balls. It was a visual treat for all the Dhoni fans around the world as he smashed four boundaries and three sixes but it all went in vain as CSK ended up on the losing side.

    With their first loss of the season, CSK have dropped down on the second spot of the points table with two victories in three matches and a net run-rate of +0.976, Kolkata Knight Riders have jumped to the top spot with two victories in two matches and a net run-rate of +1.047.

    Earlier in the day, Gujarat Titans defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 7 wickets and registered their second win of the season.

    On the other hand, DC have jumped to the seventh spot with one victory in three matches and a net run-rate of -0.016.

    Coming to the match, Rishabh Pant led from the front with his first IPL fifty since his comeback from a horror car crash as Delhi Capitals beat Chennai Super Kings by 20 runs on Sunday.

    Captain Pant hit 51 off 32 balls after fellow left-hander David Warner smashed 52 and helped Delhi to 191-5 in Visakhapatnam — the adopted homeground for the Capitals due to the upcoming general elections.

    But the fans in the south Indian city largely represented Chennai as they chanted (M.S. Dhoni) “Dhoni, Dhoni” — the former skipper obliging with an unbeaten 37 off 16 balls, including four fours and three sixes.

    Delhi restricted Chennai to 171-6 for their first win of the season and hand their opponents a loss after two opening victories.

    Khaleel Ahmed returned bowling figures of 2-21 and Mukesh Kumar took three wickets.
