A One-Sided Match

Chennai Super Kings 168/4 (20/20 ov); Delhi Daredevils 135/9 (20/20 ov)
Chennai Super Kings won by 33 runs

The starting odds were 1.5 in f/o CSK, and remained around or below that for most of the match, going up to 1.65 for the best, for fleeting moments in between, such that punters and viewers expecting a fight/some competition from DD lost/were disappointed. 

The early wicket of Sehwag was necessary to ensure that match and odds remained one-sided. When DD gave some fight with CSK 88/3 in 12 overs, the odds remained one-sided being 1.5 in f/o CSK even then.

Dhoni, as usual, was fed with full tosses and lose balls.
