CSK vs DD: Decisions That Made Skipper Sehwag Look Like A Novice In front Of Captain Dhoni

•    One wondered what made Delhi Daredevils drop their best bowler Morne Morkel from the match. It was a shocking decision by Daredevils to drop IPL-5’s highest wicket-taker Morne Morkel. Morkel was dropped to accommodate Andre Russell in place of injured Irfan Pathan.

•    Morne’s replacement, offie Sunny Gupta makes his debut to give 47 runs in 3 overs and was dismissed for a duck. What the hell? Who made this decision? Sehwag….

•    Maahendra Singh Dhoni’s persistence with his team paid him high. Dhoni backed Murali Vijay till the end and despite being off colour till now, the CSK opener came to make merry as Vijay fired a 58-ball 113 that took the game away from Delhi in the first half itself.

•    Sehwag coming at No 3, when the whole world knows his prowess at an opener. The early departure of Warner demoralised Delhi further and Chennai started firing with all their might.

•    Dismissals of Warner and Sehwag within first 4 overs seal the match. Mahela (55) battles on but left too stiff a target to chase
