Defending Indian Premier League champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) seem to have a tight command on the tournament right from the very beginning. After winning the first match quite comfortably against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), CSK stepped into Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium on Tuesday, to play Delhi Capitals (DC) in their first away match of IPL 2019.
Too late experienced to be fazed by away conditions, CSK once again restricted Delhi to the score of 147, courtesy DJ Bravo, who took crucial wickets of the dangerous Rishabh Pant and Colin Ingram in the 16th over and then took the opener Shikhar Dhawan by surprising him in his next over itself.View this post on Instagram

Being backed by Shardal Thakur and Imran Tahir under the Delhi skies gave Bravo an advantage to take wickets while the pressure was built at the other end.
Bagging three wickets in this match and already having a wicket from the last match, took Bravo's total wicket count to four, which places him on the second position for the Purple Cap run, right after his teammate Imran Tahir who bags the first spot on the basis of better economy rate.
It was the cherry on the cake for the 35-year-old allrounder as apart from getting the wickets, he also got to score the winning runs for his team to take them to victory with two balls to spare.
