Delhi Daredevils thrashed CSK by eight wickets

Delhi Daredevils put up a clinical performance as they thrashed defending champions Chennai Super Kings by 8 wickets in the Indian Premier League 2012.

Delhi skipper Sehwag won the toss and rightfully elected to field first as the wicket had a bit of juice and there was enough for the home side bowlers to exploit the windy conditions.

After the Delhi bowlers kept Mahendra Singh Dhoni's men under wraps restricting them to a modest 110/8, the home batsmen made short work of the target knocking off the runs in only 13.2 overs to register their second win of the tournament.

Virender Sehwag was in blazing form as he set the tone with a typically aggressive 21-ball 33(4x4, 1x6).

Kevin Pietersen took over from where Sehwag left as he smashed an unbeaten 43 off 26 balls (3x4, 2x6) adding 61 runs with Mahela Jayawardene (20 no) to finish off the proceedings with 40 balls remaining.

With as many as four CSK batsmen being victims of horrible misunderstandings, Virender Sehwag's bowlers also responded well by keeping the batsmen under tight leash.

While Morne Morkel returned with best figures of 2/19 from fours overs, it was spin twins Roloef van der Merwe (4-0-15-0) and young Shahbaz Nadeem (3-0-9-0) who gave away only 24 runs in their seven overs to set the match up for Delhi Daredevils.
