KATHMANDU, April 11: Delhi Capitals (DC) started their VIVO Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 campaign with a 7-wicket victory against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday.
Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw’s entertaining knocks at the top helped DC chase down a challenging total with ease.
Although DC were without the services of their core overseas players like Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje, they played some strong backups, with Tom Curran and Chris Woakes making their respective debuts for DC.
Winning the toss, DC had decided to bowl first. CSK was restricted to 188 for 7 wickets in the allotted 20 overs.
