T20 2018: Chennai beat Hyderabad by 8 Wickets

They were severe on any loose deliveries and chose to run those singles and doubles whenever the opportunity presented.

Facing a testing target of 177 to win, the Royals were led by the inspired Buttler, who clubbed an eye-catching 95 not out to secure a four-wicket triumph with one ball to spare.

Sunrisers Hyderabad are expected to go with an unchanged eleven.

Chennai Super Kings, leading by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, would like to book their place in the playoffs of the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League by winning a game against Sunrisers Hyderabad at their second home ground Maharashtra Cricket Stadium in Pune on Sunday.

CSK who are placed second on the points table, four points adrift SRH, are not under a lot of pressure, unlike the mid-table teams. Even as Watson and Raina got out in quick succession, Rayudu didn't stop his audacious strokeplay as MS Dhoni (20*) added his finishing touch to a ideal chase as Chennai reached the target with one over to spare. Chennai batsmen have scored well in this season. Most of the batsmen - Ambati Rayudu, Australian Shane Watson, West Indian Dwayne Bravo, MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina - have contributed whenever the team needed.

Put in to bat, Kolkata Knight Riders set a huge target of 246 runs. With 393 runs from 10 innings, Dhoni has also shown glimpses of the past. Though both the teams have effectively qualified for the play-off stage, both the teams have plenty of stake and to play for in the today match which commences at 04:00 p.m.

The pace attack will once again rely on Lungi Ngidi, David Willey and Shardul Thakur.

On the other hand, another win for Hyderabad will hand them their seventh consecutive victory this season.

After the match, Kane Williamson conceded that the Sunrisers Hyderabad were outplayed by the southern rivals.

Bhuvneshwar had another rare poor day in office, after the treatment he got from Delhi DareDevils' Rishabh Pant, as he leaked 38 runs from his four overs without any success.

It seems that the young man is in love with the Orange Army.

Sunrisers Hyderabad possible playing XI: Alex Hales, Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson (c), Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Shreevats Goswami (wk), Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma. They remain in the top two along with SRH.

Royals required 12 from the final over, sent down by Bravo, and the equation remained close when only four runs came from the first three balls.

Skipper Ajinkya Rahane (4) was fooled by Ravindra Jadeja and the catch was talen at slip by Suresh Raina after it bounced off Dhoni's gloves.
