The 29th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) took place in Dubai between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The three-time champions finally kept their playoffs hopes alive winning the contest by 20 runs. Batting first, CSK posted a decent 167 on the board where knocks from Shane Watson (42 off 38) and Ambati Rayudu (41 off 34) remained substantial. They showed some aggressive form with the bat to get the team going.
Ravindra Jadeja was named the player of the match for his all-round performance on the field. He scored 25* off 10 in the end, took one wicket, and showed sheer class in fielding too. Brief innings by Sam Curran in beginning (31 off 21) and MS Dhoni (21 off 13) turned out to be successful in pushing the team’s score in the respectable slot. Sandeep Sharam showed perfect form with the ball as he conceded just 19 runs in his spell and picked two wickets.
CSK dominated the bowling show too
Chasing the modest total, the opening batsmen of SRH failed to fetch the required runs for the team. Only Kane Williamson (57 off 39) held one end and he failed to gain any support from other batters. Sam Curran and Deepak Chahar were economical for the team, while DJ Bravo and Karn Sharma named two dismissals each to their credit.
