FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Dwayne Bravo. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. CSK have moved to the top of the table after a six wicket victory over the Delhi Capitals. Shane Watson and Suresh Raina got the visitors ahead of the required run rate with an array of powerful strokes in the powerplay, allowing MS Dhoni to take control of the chase in typically calm style. Looking back, the turning point of the match came when Rishabh Pant was caught in the deep in the first innings because from there the hosts were fairly tame in the death overs. Dwayne Bravo was the star with the ball, his 33-3 included the crucial wickets of Pant, Dhawan and Ingram and fittingly he was the man to hit the winning runs. We'll be back tomorrow with more IPL action from Eden Gardens as KKR take on Kings XI.

Dwayne Bravo to Rahul Tewatia. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Thakur. Delhi Capitals have scrapped their way to 6-147 from their 20 overs on a very slow surface. Rishabh Pant injected some much needed impetus into the innings while Shikhar Dhawan held things together with a patient half century, but the hosts could only muster 29 runs from the final five overs after looking set for more. CSK seemed to keep things in control with Dwayne Bravo picking up 6-147, however it could be a tricky total to chase down.

FOUR! Dwayne Bravo to Rahul Tewatia. Off cutter full toss, off stump moves in front pulling, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. The slower ball goes awry and it's easily dispatched. Delhi will be looking for another couple of those before the innings is done.

Much needed boundary for the Capitals, Axar able to help the ball on its way over short fine leg for a one bounce four. Thakur is disappointed, it was a superb over up to that point.

OUT! Caught. Dwayne Bravo to Shikhar Dhawan. Off cutter length ball, outside off stump moves in front flick, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to deep square leg, by Thakur. Massive wicket, the champion is having a wonderful evening with the ball. Dhawan was through his shot way too early, deceived by the lack of pace, and Thakur had ample time to settle underneath it. The opener was holding things together for the hosts, without him they will struggle to reach 150.

OUT! Caught. Dwayne Bravo to Colin Ingram. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover, by Raina. Another one, Bravo smiles and dances as he picks up his second wicket of the over. Ingram was looking to force a drive through the offside and it skewed into the safe hands of Raina. The match has very quickly changed complexion, Dhawan holds the key for Delhi now.

OUT! Caught. Dwayne Bravo to Rishabh Pant. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep backward square leg, by Thakur. That's the wicket CSK have been desperately wanting, Pant is gone after a brief cameo. Bravo took some tap in his first over, Dhoni backed him to bowl another one and it has worked perfectly for the visitors. Pant was looking to whip the ball with a wristy flourish but the timing wasn't quite there and Thakur was able to take a tumbling grab in the deep.

This is Pant at his audacious best. There was clearly a plan to keep the ball well wide of off stump, he backs himself to muscle it and clear the man which is exactly what happens. Fantastic six by the left-handed superstar.

Start of Delhi Capitals Innings. Welcome to coverage of Match 5 of the 2019 IPL, today we have Delhi Capitals hosting Chennai Super Kings. Both of these teams kick-started their campaigns with a victory although they couldn't have come in more differing styles. Delhi romped to a massive total against Mumbai thanks to fireworks from Rishabh Pant, whereas Chennai bundled out RCB on a raging turner in Chepauk. What do we have in store for us today? Yesterday was full of drama and you would imagine the batsmen on both sides will be very careful about backing up at the non-striker's end this evening. This might feel like a home game for CSK tonight with plenty of die-hard Dhoni fans in the house. The Capitals need to prove their worth to the local fans after a rebrand, beating the reigning champions today would be a very good way to start.

FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Dwayne Bravo. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. CSK have moved to the top of the table after a six wicket victory over the Delhi Capitals. Shane Watson and Suresh Raina got the visitors ahead of the required run rate with an array of powerful strokes in the powerplay, allowing MS Dhoni to take control of the chase in typically calm style. Looking back, the turning point of the match came when Rishabh Pant was caught in the deep in the first innings because from there the hosts were fairly tame in the death overs. Dwayne Bravo was the star with the ball, his 33-3 included the crucial wickets of Pant, Dhawan and Ingram and fittingly he was the man to hit the winning runs. We'll be back tomorrow with more IPL action from Eden Gardens as KKR take on Kings XI.

OUT! Stumped. Amit Mishra to Shane Watson. Leg spinner length ball, wide outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for 1 run, by Pant. What a riposte, just what Delhi needed to claw themselves back into this contest. Watson was stretching and couldn't reach the ball, Pant did amazingly well to gather from so wide and then get back to the bails. There was only an inch in it, fine margins in this game. Mishra held his nerve after being spanked for two sixes, the value of experience in this format.

OUT! Caught. Ishant Sharma to Ambati Rayudu. Short, outside off stump down the track pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid off, by Iyer. Breakthrough for Delhi, the two-paced nature of the pitch is perfectly exploited by the tall fast bowler. Ishant got this to seemingly gather speed off the deck so Rayudu was rushed for time and in an awkward position. It balloons up for a simple catch, the hosts were celebrating before their skipper even had it in his hands.
