TATA IPL 2024: Delhi Capitals vs Chennai Super Kings Match N0. 13 High Lights and Player of the Match: In the fierce match between Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings in match number 13 of IPL 2024, people are discussing the defeat of the Kings more than the victory of the Capitals.

In a match that will be remembered for MS Dhoni’s blistering strike in the closing stages that sent the crowd into a frenzy, it was ultimately the Delhi Capitals who emerged victorious by a margin of 20 runs.

Dhoni’s late onslaught, while thrilling, was not enough for the Chennai Super Kings to bridge the gap. Right from the start, the Delhi Capitals executed their game plan with precision while maintaining control of the proceedings.

The target of 192, which was initially achievable given the favorable pitch conditions and short boundaries, turned out to be a difficult task due to Khaleel Ahmed’s remarkable opening spell.

Ahmed’s skill not only dismissed CSK’s key openers but also showed his dominance over a talent like Rachin, highlighting the effectiveness of his attack.

While the Capitals were batting, Delhi Capitals balanced aggression with strategic play and posted a strong score thanks to an aggressive half-century from Rishabh Pant.

Despite the magical moments provided by Dhoni, it was the collective effort and strategic execution of the Capitals that sealed the deal.

The Delhi Capitals bowlers, led by Ahmed, effectively dismantled the opposition lineup, ensuring that their strategy culminated in a comfortable 20-run win over the Chennai Super Kings.

Delhi Capitals match-winning match-losing Captain Rishabh Pant: “Today, our bowlers were spot on. We’ve taken our previous lessons to heart. Shaw has been putting in the effort for the last two weeks, and giving him the opportunity paid off today. Mukesh’s role, especially at death, will vary from game to game.

For me, cricket has always been my life, and giving it my all is non-negotiable. After not playing much for 1.5 years, it took some time to adjust, but my self-belief has never wavered. It’s crucial to keep coming back, no matter what.”

Chennai Super Kings Captain Ruturaj Gaikwad: “Honestly, I was pleased with our comeback after the initial overs. Considering their start at 60 for no loss, pulling them back to 190 felt like a solid effort. Throughout the game, the pitch seemed consistent, though Rachin appeared to struggle a bit with the spongy bounce.


Our start wasn’t ideal, and that gap became the critical difference. Initially, the target seemed achievable, but we soon faced significant seam movement and struggled to catch up, lacking those crucial big overs.

Regarding Deepak, he’s accustomed to bowling three overs upfront, although the last over in the powerplay turned out costly. After two wins, a setback in the third game isn’t unexpected. Losing by 20 runs came down to just a few shots, and overall, our bowlers performed commendably.” 

DC vs CSK Match No. 13 Player of the Match Khaleel Ahmed: “My performance today is the fruit of relentless hard work at the domestic level. I’ve focused on enhancing my swing, and it’s gratifying to see the outcomes.

There’s a unique joy in watching batters struggle against my swing. Of course, making a comeback to the Indian team remains my ultimate aim. I appreciate all the blessings and support.”
