IPL 2019 results: Points table standings – updated after CSK vs DC match

Chennai Super Kings finished their IPL 2019 league stage at home with a win, a massive one with an 80-run mauling of Delhi Capitals in Match 50 at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on Wednesday. This win had MS Dhoni written all over it with the ‘THALA’ first making his presence felt with an unbeaten 44 off just 22 balls to power CSK to 179/4, after CSK were at 102/3 in the 15th over.

While DC threatened at the start in the run-chase, they ran out of steam against CSK spinners – led by Imran Tahir 4/12  and Ravindra Jadeja 3/9 – as they succumbed to their lowest-ever total in the IPL.

This win takes CSK to the top of the table with 18 points in 13 matches and more or less seals a top-two finish and place in Qualifier 1 to be held in Chennai. For Delhi, they lose their top spot and slip to second with their fifth loss in 13 matches.

For DC, only Shreyas Iyer contributed anything substantial with 44 off 31 balls. With this win, Chennai reclaimed their top spot in the points table with 18 points in 13 matches.

DC were at a healthy position of 59/2 after the first six overs, but Tahir and Jadeja’s seven wickets derailed DC’s chase. Rishabh Pant, who had hit a handsome drive off Tahir to get a four was foxed by the flight of the South African, holing at long-off in the same over, caught by Dwayne Bravo. Then the procession started with Jadeja trapping Colin Ingram in front for one in the next over – the eighth of the innings. In the 10th, Tahir claimed Axar Patel and Sherfane Rutherford. Patel was caught at slips for one while Rutherford’s edge was pouched by Deepak Chahar at backward point. SCORECARD: CSK vs DC

Jadeja added two more in the 11th over with Dhoni effecting two sensational stumps to remove Chris Morris for a duck and Iyer for 44. Shane Watson ran out Jagadeesha Suchith and Tahir finished off the match with Dhoni effecting his third stumping in the form of Amit Mishra (8), as DC were all out in 16.2 overs. HIGHLIGHTS: CSK vs DC
