MSD's return implies it's back to winning ways for Chennai. It's their final league game at home and they have ensured that they have guarded their fortress. Imran Tahir's 4 wickets for 12 runs and MS Dhoni's 44 off 22 helped them a thumping victory over the Capitals, who were placed at number one spot before this game. A win here has helped men-in-yellow to occupy the top spot, which means they will play Qualifier 1 at home.  SCORECARD

  May 01, 2019  20:53 (IST)

  May 01, 2019  20:44 (IST)

ALERT: 50-run partnership between Faf du Plessis and Suresh Raina.

  May 01, 2019  20:24 (IST)

The powerplay belongs to Delhi capitals here. They have been able to restrict the hosts, and executed their plans beautifully. After 6 overs, it's 26/1. 

  May 01, 2019  20:22 (IST)

Two bloundaries off the fifth over. One came of Faf du Plessis' bat and other from Raina's. Chennai will look to up the scoring rate from here on. After 5 overs, it's 17/1. 

  May 01, 2019  20:18 (IST)

It took Chennai 26 balls to score its first boundary. 

  May 01, 2019  20:13 (IST)

  May 01, 2019  20:07 (IST)

After first two overs, Chennai Super Kings has been able to score just 2 runs. It has been a display of discipline and proper planning. Good start by Capitals. 

  May 01, 2019  19:59 (IST)

TOSS: Delhi opt to bowl

  May 01, 2019  19:01 (IST)

The toss is scheduled to happen in 30 minutes time and team winning the toss will look to have a bat first as chasing has been difficult at Chennai wicket. However, this remains to be seen if toss-winning captain goes with the same thought.

  May 01, 2019  19:00 (IST)

Shreyas Iyer's Delhi Capitals on the other hand have won four from their last five matches and look a much settled unit after slightly hot and cold start to their campaign.

  May 01, 2019  18:59 (IST)

With Dhoni likely to comeback into the playing XI, CSK would be aiming to return to winning ways. Shane Watson's form at the top of the order will serve as a much-needed boost to the team. Besides Dhoni, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is set to return from illness as well.

  May 01, 2019  18:59 (IST)

MS Dhoni-less CSK lost their return leg against Mumbai Indians in their previous game at the Chepauk, their third in last four games and seem to be losing form at the wrong time. 

  May 01, 2019  18:58 (IST)

Hello and a warm welcome. We are all set to witness another crackerjack of an encounter as MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings hosts Delhi Capitals at Chepauk in Chennai.
