CSK lost wickets at regular intervals and could never get going in the chase. Rashid Khan from SRH was the chief destroyer as he gave only 11 runs for his 2 wickets.
Faf du Plessis, however, is keeping CSK in the chase. The winner will reach the IPL Final.
The IPL season has been the grandest of all the IPL seasons, and the grand finale of the 11th edition of the Indian cash-rich T20 league will be something completely out of this world, as two of the most prolific teams come face to face at the Wankhede Stadium on May 27, Chennai Super Kings actually did the unthinkable when they finished high up in the IPL table while ending their season games, winning 9 out of 14 of the intense and highly contested clashes, as was evident through VIVO IPL live streaming.
CSK won the toss and elected to bowl and the bowlers did a great job as SRH could not recover from the bad start and lost regular wickets. Their scoring rate fell below six in the second half of the innings.
Carlos Brathwaite made 43 runs from 29 balls to help CSK recover and post for 7 in 20 overs. Chennai Super Kings have had a batting order filled with match winners and that has at times covered up for the faults in the bowling.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have a lethal bowling attack but have need captain Kane Williamson to anchor an innings in almost every match they have played.
Having to depend on one of the best batsmen in the world is not exactly a bad position to be in but the lack of a genuine backup to Williamson's calmness is something that CSK will be looking to exploit.
But they also know that, once settled, Williamson is almost impossible to dismiss before he does enough damage that dismissing him becomes a futile exercise. This match hence might boil down to which bowling attack does better.
