That is actually going to sting for CSK. They are not an excellent facet on paper, however Delhi with out Axar, Nortje, and Rabada (and Iyer), represented an actual alternative. Bowling within the Powerplay was unfastened, and Jadeja aside no CSK bowler appeared to deal with the Wankhede circumstances. #CSKvDC
