Chennai crush Delhi by 93 runs in IPL

Abu Dhabi—Chennai Super Kings crushed Delhi Daredevils by 93 runs in a thoroughly one-sided game in here at Sheikh Zayad Stadium. Super Kings started steadily after choosing to bat, but Suresh Raina’s busy fifty in the middle and a late surge catapulted them to 177. Their quicks tied Daredevils down with accurate swing bowling, and electric catching from Raina and Faf du Plessis made it harder. The middle order sank without a fight, and by the halfway stage of the chase, the match was as good as over. By the 16th over, Super Kings had wrapped up their biggest win in terms of runs.
