Chennai started off terribly as both their openers were back in the hut fairly early. Rayudu and Suresh Raina who was good in the last match looked to steady the ship. Raina scored a crucial half-century on this slow pitch.

But it was Ambati Rayudu’s superb knock as he scored 79 in just 37 balls, hitting 9 fours and 6 maximums. Dhoni gave the finishing touches as he hit 25 in just 12 balls to take Chennai to 182 at the loss of 3 wickets.

 

SRH’s Bowling

Having a good bowling attach, SRH will be looking to restrict CSK to a low total. The bowlers started on high giving away just 30 runs in the first 7 overs getting 2 wickets. Both Suresh Raina and Rayudu made it difficult for the bowlers as they got in and started scoring freely on the really slow-paced pitch. Except for Rashid Khan, all the bowlers bowled economically.

In the end overs, things out of the bowlers’ hands as both the batsmen hit boundaries at regular intervals. The home team gave away a few unnecessary runs as the CSK set a decent total.

 

Sunrisers’ Chase

The home team started off really poorly as they lost two of their batsmen for a duck. With a big target ahead, the Hyderabad team needed a captain’s knock from Kane Williamson. The team kept on losing wickets regularly without scoring any significant amount of runs. Kane Williamson’s brilliant innings gave the home team some hope but there was no one else supporting him at the other end. Despite Yusuf’s and Williamson’s best efforts, they couldn’t take their team over the line as SRH tasted defeat.

 

CSK’s Bowling

The bowlers started off well getting two wickets inside the first two overs containing the flow of runs as well. It was Deepak Hooda who was caught in Chahar’s web as he went back to the pavilion. Chennai was in a commanding position. Deepak Chahar bowled brilliantly, getting 3 giving away just 15 runs in his 4 overs.
