After winning the toss, Delhi Captains new rookie captain Rishabh Pant opted to bowl first due to the due factor on the ground. 

Chennai Super Kings lost their first wicket of Faf du Plessis 0(3) in the 2nd over to Avesh Khan. Then Immediately, Ruturaj Gaikwad 5(8) gave a catch to Shikar Dhawan in the Chris Woakes over. 

After these two back to back wickets, Moeen Ali and Suresh Raina built a 53 run partnership in 38 balls with regular boundaries. After a long time, it's good to see Suresh Raina hitting sixes in the stadium. He missed the last season of IPL due to personal reasons.

This partnership is broke by the veteran Indian spinner R Ashwin in the 9th over. Moeen Ali 36(24) gave a catch to Shikar Dhawan at the third man, trying to sweep the ball offside, after hitting two consecutive sixes.

Then Ambati Rayudu joins the party with Suresh Raina, they both too made a 63 runs partnership in 33 balls. When they are batting, boundaries rained in the Wankhede Stadium. This rain didn't last too long. 

At the end of the 14th over, Ambati Rayudu 23(16) gave a catch to Shikar Dhawan in Tom Curran's over. In the Anvesh Khan's over, due to a miscommunication and bowlers fault, Suresh Raina 54(36) got runout.

Immediately after that, the captain of CSK M S Dhoni got out in the Anvesh Khan's over. After seeing MS Dhoni got out, my heart just skipped a beat. That was his 4th duck out in the Indian Premier League.

Then Curran brothers fought each other but, the younger brother Sam Curran won it by hitting his brother over to the boundaries with the help of R Jadeja.

At the end of the first Innings, CSK made 188 runs in 20 overs by losing 7 wickets.

By the time Dwayne Bravo took the wicket of Prithvi Shaw 72(38), it's too late to stop Delhi from capitals scoring runs. After some time, Shikar 85 (54) gave his wicket to S Thakur.

Pant, Marcus Stoinis and Shimron Hetmyer completed the match by scoring the few runs left by the openers. At last, the rookie captain won the match for his team by hitting a four.
