IPL 2018: CSK vs SRH Preview

Dhinchak Pooja and MS Dhoni

His average of 98.25 is the best by any batsman this season and the Chennai Super Kings skipper needs just 7 runs to reach 400 runs this season.

CSK will to brush aside their loss against Rajasthan Royals (RR) as they target a win, on Sunday, against Sunrisers Hyderbad (SRH) to brighten their chances to join the Kane Williamson-led unit IPL 2018 playoffs.

Sunrisers arrived in Pune with a ideal record batting first, having successfully defended118, 132, 146 and 151.

Chasing a competitive total of 180 runs, it was the 134-run opening stand between Ambati Rayudu (100 not out) and Shane Watson (57 off 35 balls), which guided the hosts home easily with an over to spare. Watson and Rayudu hit boundaries whenever there was an opportunity. CSK have missed Deepak Chahar's four overs, given how inconsistent their other bowlers have been.

You know the basic principles of swing, the techniques, the release, the wrist position, but the phenomenon of swing bowling sometimes surprises you by disappearing suddenly. In spite of having run rate of about 10 in the first ten overs, the team is not able to play at the same rate in the next ten overs. He had Alex Hales slashing a wide delivery to Raina at point.

The win by former champions CSK also snapped Sunrisers six-match winning streak this season.


Fortunes swung both sides in the first half of the match.

Sunrisers Hyderabad are expected to go with an unchanged eleven.

The top four teams at the end of the group stages make it into the play-off stages.

It was a decision that paid off as the home team was able to restrict the visitors for just 179 runs despite some great recovery in the middle overs by Dhawan and Williamson. A change in colour from Blue of Mumbai to the fabled yellow of Chennai also brought with it a change in fortunes along with brief periods with this season's purple cap. But his batting never looked as smooth and effortless it has this season. The first, he swept over deep fine leg.

In the bowling department, spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Harbhajan Singh came into their own on the slow Pune surface against Royal Challengers Bangalore, sharing five wickets for 40 runs from their eight overs. These are catches that can be appreciated only at the ground: the anticipation, the early movement, the still head, the control.

Stuart Binny's 22 off 17 balls and Krishnappa Gowtham's (13) four-ball cameo including two sixes helped the chase, though they fell close to the finish line. Twitter, as expected, hailed the warrior who single-handedly ripped apart the best bowling line-up in the tournament.
