IPL: CSK beat SRH by 8 wickets

IPL 2018 IPL ratings decline on Star Sports CSK SS1 Hindi most watched- InsideSport

Preview: The Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will be desperate to return to their winning ways when they face table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in an Indian Premier League (IPL) tie at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune on Sunday. While Thakur, who had impressive figures of 1/22 in his four overs against Rajasthan Royals, is set to feature in the playing XI against Sunrisers Hyderabad (CSK vs SRH), Willey's inclusion look hard as the English pacer leaked 47 runs bagging a wicket.

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. Find us on Facebook too!

On a track where batting looked, rather easy in the second innings, CSK overhauled a stiff target of 180 runs easily and still had 6 balls to spare.

What happened to Kane Williamson the T20 struggler? Chennai have 14 points from 11 games and their playoff spot is not yet sealed and delivered, though it's nearly certain. His innings began with three straight boundaries off of countryman David Willey before smashing 14 runs - including a six - off the ensuing Harbhajan over. No bowler was spared as Bhuvneshwar was manhandled, so was Shakib Al Hasan.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan (290 runs) got into the groove at the opportune time with a big knock against Delhi Daredevils while inspirational skipper Williamson (493 runs) has been in prime form throughout the tournament. Rayudu's ton was the fourth of IPL 11 after Shane Watson, Chris Gayle, and Rishabh Pant. While one of the maximums was over short fine leg as the bowler messed up the knuckle ball, the other was dismissed with a statement of "Don't bowl short to me" written all over it. In the matches against KKR and RR, Chennai lost the match in spite of setting a good target while batting first. He played the new-ball specialist Deepak Chahar patiently and surprisingly left a few balls outside his off-stump off Dwayne Bravo.

You have filled my life and that of our family with love, care and kindness that we can never repay you even in a thousand lives. But while the day isn't as simply sunny as our Instagram feeds make it out to be, it's a day of recognizing nurturing and love.

Already assured of their place in the playoffs, the Sunrisers looked to have posted a competitive total when they reached 179-4 thanks largely to Shikhar Dhawan (79 off 49 balls) and skipper Kane Williamson (51 off 39).

The duo added 55 runs in 6.4 overs to take the team's total past 175-run mark.

Dhawan and Willaimson then rained in fours and sixes as they added 68 runs in five overs after the halfway stage to take their side to 130 for one at the end of the 15th over.

Dhoni also insisted that there was enough on the board for CSK to defend on what was a two-paced wicket, on which batsmen struggled to get going straight away. However, Alex Hales and Manish Pandey need to shoulder the responsibility in case Williamson fails to deliver.
