Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway having a good time in Delhi while taking advantage of the favourable batting conditions David Warner sought to use for home advantage. As a result, Chennai Super Kings were able to win by a score of 77 runs and secure a spot in the playoffs with 17 points.
Their top two goals received a significant lift from their increased net run rate. The reigning champion Gujarat Titans might be up next in Qualifier 1 on their home field at Chepauk. Unless Lucknow Super Giants defeat Kolkata Knight Riders by 97 runs or more, they will have a lower net run rate than CSK.

His 86 off 58 had some exciting moments, especially against Ravindra Jadeja, but everything he achieved was essentially doing damage control due to the collapse around him.
