looking so good this time tries to create some room for the cut-shot but he
clearly misses the ball which goes down to shatter the off-stump as Watson goes
for 31. Suresh Raina comes in. CSK 79/1
Plessis can’t wait to get into the bowlers head but this time Shankar bowls a
short of length ball off stump and Du Plessis edges it to the keeper Bairstow.
Du Plessis goes for 45. CSK 81/2
mystery spinner from Afghanistan removes CSK’s stand-in skipper Suresh Raina
and then backs it up with Kedar Jadhav’s wicket. Both LBWs, both are referred
for the review and both results in umpire’s call. Rashid Khan on-a-roll.
Ahmed strikes as well!

and du Plessis gave the best start for CSK but the middle order could not cope
with the slow surface. Rashid and Co. kept the lid on the scoring and picked
wickets at regular intervals as well. If not for Rayudu’s 25, CSK would have
fallen well short of the 132 they got in the end.

Warner & Jonny Bairstow comes out to open
to a quick start!
Warner and Jonny Bairstow get SRH off the blocks very quickly. The openers
stitch another 50-plus stand in the tournament – sixth time they have done it
in 8 games.
Warner quickly raced away to a 24-ball fifty before Deepak Chahar deceived him
with a knuckle ball and he could not clear midoff and offered a sitter to Faf
Du Plessis. This is his third consecutive fifty.

Tahir finishes his spell – 4-0-20-2
African legspinner keeps CSK in the hunt with twin wickets of Kane Williamson
and Vijay Shankar. However, his spell has already been bowled out in the 13th
over and with very little support, SRH still remain in the front seat,
especially with Bairstow still on the crease.
up for Jonny Bairstow!
Bairstow has been such a impressive addition to SRH. He has complimented
Warner, matched him with shots and sometimes even outscoring, but today he’s
taken over the baton of taking his side over the line. He gets to his second
50-plus score of the season.
losing streak against CSK
not won a game in their four opportunities last season, SRH managed to get one
over against giant CSK this year. The bowlers set it up by restricting them to
a below par total of 132, then Warner got them off the pretty quick start with
a fifty off just 24 balls and despite of losing two quick wickets they in the
middle, Bairstow batted right through and got them over the line with an
Man of the match: David Warner for quick fire knock of fifty.
