An all-round performance on the field from the Chennai Super Kings enabled them to pick up their 11th win of the Indian Premier League 2013 when they completed a 33-run victory over toothless Delhi Daredevils.
This win takes them back to the top of the table, ahead of the Mumbai Indians, with 22 points from 15 games.
