Dubai, Sept 26: All-round team performance by Delhi Capitals guided them to 44 runs victory over Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) here at the Dubai International Stadium on Friday.

Chasing a moderate target of 176, CSK openers Shane Watson and Murali Vijay played cautiously and had a 23-run partnership. All-rounder Axar Patel provided the first breakthrough as he bagged Watson (14) in the fifth over.

Faf du Plessis joined Vijay in the middle but the latter failed to convert the start and was dismissed by pacer Anrich Nortje in the last over of the powerplay.

Vijay scored 10 runs off 15 balls. Ruturaj Gaikwad (5) came in to bat at number four but failed to impress with the bat. He was sent back to the pavilion after getting run out in the 10th over.

Kedhar Jadhav and Faf built the innings and stitched a 54-run partnership for the fifth wicket.

Jadhav scored 26 runs off 21 balls before he was caught in front of the wickets by Nortje in the 16th over.

CSK skipper Dhoni joined Faf in the middle and had a brief 15-run partnership.

CSK required 65 runs in the last three overs to win the game.

In the 18th over Shimron Hetmyer dropped Faf on 41 but on the next ball, he was caught behind the stumps by Rishabh Pant.

Kagiso Rabada scalped the crucial wicket for Delhi Capitals. Faf scored 43 runs off 35 balls.

Ravindra Jadeja and Dhoni then had a 17-run stand and the duo failed to put their side over the line. Rabada got rid of Dhoni in the last over. Dhoni scored 15 runs.

Jadeja scored 12 before he was picked by Nortje on the last ball of the match. Sam Curran remained unbeaten on 1 run.

For Capitals, Rabada bagged three wickets while Nortje scalped two wickets.

Earlier, Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant played knocks of 64 and 37* respectively as Delhi Capitals posted a total of 175/3.

Put in to bat first, Delhi Capitals got off to a good start as openers Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan put on 94 runs for the first wicket. The partnership between both batsmen saw Shaw bringing up his half-century as well.

CSK finally got the breakthrough in the 11th over as Dhawan (35) was adjudged leg-before wicket while trying to play a reverse sweep off the bowling of Piyush Chawla.

Delhi Capitals was given yet another big blow in the 13th over as Shaw (64) was sent back to the pavilion as CSK skipper MS Dhoni stumped him off the bowling of Chawla and this reduced Delhi to 103/2. Skipper Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant then got together at the crease to retrieve Delhi's innings.

The duo played two-three overs cautiously and finally started looking for big shots in the death overs. Sam Curran bowled a tight 19th over as he conceded just four runs and he also managed to bag the wicket of Iyer (26).

In the final over, Marcus Stoinis (5*) and Pant (37*) were able to score 14 runs to take Delhi's total past the 170-run mark.

Manchester, Sept 14: Australia batted itself into a winning position before dramatically collapsing on Sunday as England won the second one-day cricket international by 24 runs to stay alive in the series.

England's decision to bat first at Old Trafford had appeared to backfire with the world champions limited to 231-9 and Australia reaching 143-2 with 20 overs left.

Australia was making it look easy thanks to a 107-run stand for the third wicket between captain Aaron Finch (73) and Marnus Labuschagne (48). But the tourists then collapsed to 147-6, and 166-8, in Manchester before finishing 207 all out in 48.4 overs.

A trio of England pacers did the damage: Chris Woakes (3-32), Jofra Archer (3-34) and Sam Curran 3-35. In what has become an unwanted tour tradition for Australia, Archer again claimed opener David Warner (6).

Australia was looking to wrap up a series victory after beating England by 19 runs in the first ODI on Friday, also in Manchester.

The third and final ODI is at the same venue on Wednesday as England tries to avoid its first one-day home series defeat since 2015.

Abu Dhabi, Sept 27: Kolkata Knight Riders' (KKR) middle-order batsman Eoin Morgan has said that Shubman Gill is very pleasing to watch on the eye and the opening batsman deserves all the success.

His remark came as KKR defeated SunRisers Hyderabad by seven wickets at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The Dinesh Karthik-led side chased down a total of 143 with 12 balls to spare. For KKR, Gill and Eoin Morgan remained unbeaten on 70 and 42 respectively.

Both Morgan and Gill got together at the crease when KKR was at 53/3, but the duo formed an unbeaten stand of 92 runs to take the side over the line by seven wickets.

"Nice feeling to get a win under our belt. It's a long tournament, but obviously, this win helps us get some momentum and confidence going. We were a bit rusty in our last game against MI, but we won this match with our bowlers, they did a great job restricting a very strong Sunrisers batting line-up. 
The wickets of Bairstow and Warner at the top put us in a good position. They put them on the back-foot and we knew we didn't have to put ourselves under pressure in the chase," Morgan told host broadcaster Star Sports after the match.

"I didn't have to tell him (Gill) a great deal, to be honest, he's beautiful to watch on the eye, good bat swing, very languid style, magnificent to watch, he's good kid, very hungry to learn and I would love to bat with him once again. I think he deserves all the success. The pitches have been a bit different, you can't be fixated by one pitch, but with the nature of the heat, it should change considerably as the tournament wears on. You should take each game as it comes and try to adapt, stick to your game plan, and hopefully, it works," he added.

KKR restricted SunRisers to just 142/4 in the allotted twenty overs as all the bowlers displayed clinical performances. Pat Cummins was the standout bowler as he ended with figures of 1-19 from his quota of four overs and he also managed to bag the wicket of Jonny Bairstow.

Cummins had a poor performance against Mumbai Indians as he conceded more than 50 runs in his four overs, but he was able to bounce back against Hyderabad.

Speaking about Cummins, Gill said: "He is a world-class bowler, he is probably one of the best bowlers in the world, one odd day doesn't matter to us, he is a world-class bowler and he bowled really well against SunRisers Hyderabad."

KKR has so far played two matches in this year's IPL and the side has won one match. The Dinesh Karthik-led side will next lock horns with Rajasthan Royals on September 30.
