In the second qualifier match of the 14th season of the Indian Premier League, the team of Delhi Capitals played a do or die match. In this match, the team made a change against Kolkata Knight Riders. In the last over of the last match, the player who caused the loss against Chennai Super Kings to captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni for three fours, had to sit out.
There was a change in the playing XI of the team that came out with the hope of IPL final against Delhi's team Kolkata. Marcus Stoinis, who was running out due to injury, was given a place in the team for the crucial match. In this match, Delhi captain and coach Ricky Ponting decided to keep Tom Curran out of the playing XI.
On the toss, Captain Pant said, we also wanted to bowl first but were thinking more about the toss. We were thinking of changing a lot more in today's match than last time. Having just one or two overs here and there can ruin everything. We needed an extra batsman, so Stoinis was included in the playing XI after Tom was dropped.
What happened against Chennai
Chennai needed 13 runs in the last over to win and made it their name by hitting three fours. On the second and third balls of Tom Curran, Dhoni hit a strong four while it was followed by a wide. A four off the next ball ended the match.
