IPL 2019 – Twitter Reactions: Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson propel CSK to eighth IPL final with six-wicket win over DC

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) openers Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson struck half-centuries to guide their team to a six-wicket victory over the Delhi Capitals (DC) in the second qualifier of IPL 2019 at the Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Vizag on Friday.

The young Delhi brigade were no match to Chennai who first tied down their opponent’s fiery batting unit before Du Plessis (39-ball 50) and Watson (32-ball 50) made the chase look easy. The Men in Yellow will now feature in their eighth IPL final where they will face their arch-rivals Mumbai Indians for the fourth title in Hyderabad on Sunday.


Earlier, CSK dished out a clinical bowling effort to restrict DC to 147 for nine in their third encounter of the season. Dwayne Bravo (2/19), Ravindra Jadeja (2/23), Deepak Chahar (2/28) and Harbhajan Singh (2/31) shared eight wickets between them to keep DC in check after opting to bowl.
