A Perfect Revange For The Chennai Super Kings

Well after a series of three defeats by the Chennai Super Kings,it looked as though the Chennai Super Kings were found to learn their lessons.And also after a series of boring one-sided matches ever since the inaugural edition of the IPL started,there was some enthusiasm in the crowd I guess after the match between Chennai Super Kings and the Delhi Dare Devils-which resulted in a last ball win for Dhoni's men.

It is true that "Time and Tide wait for none".Since the first round robin of the IPL got over and the second round has already begun.When the same two teams met in the first round robin,the Delhi Dare Devils demolishes the Chennai Super kings by handing them their first ever defeat in the tournament.Since then th Chennai Super Kings have never been able to win a single match.And what better can it get by starting their winning streak once again by winning against a team which handed them the first ever defeat in the tournament?

The only positives in the Delhi Daredevils team being the knock of Gautam Gambhir who kept on fighting a losing battle,keeping the hopes of a Daredevils' win very much alive to a greater pert of the innings.But,no enough support for him at the other end (but for Shikar Dhawan) made things worse for the Delhi Dare Devils.

And one more thing that keeps on confusing/wondering me is the fact that Dhoni was awarded the man of the match award,with Stephen Fleming and Vidyut doing the scoring part for most part of the innings and also with a better strike rate of 170+ compared to Dhoni's run-a-ball 30.How?
