The decision did not lead to fruition as CSK failed to restrict DC from setting a respectable target. Opener Prithvi Shaw scored 64 runs off 43 balls and his opening partnership with Shikhar Dhawan gave the side a solid start. Dhawan was out at 35 but Rishabh Pant came in to give the support and remained not out till the end of the innings at 37 runs.

Coming in to defend the score, Dhoni's side never really flourished. The strike rate kept on mounting as CSK fumbled in front of Rabada, Nortje-led bowling attack. Kagiso Rabada was the most economical, having picked up 3 wickets for 26 runs in four overs. Faf du Plessis was in good form, having scored 43 off 35 but was dismissed by Rabada. Captain Dhoni, like the last match, stayed on the crease till the end, but could not win the game.
