Chennai Super Kings have won a thrilling game against Sunrisers Hyderabad as they won the game by just 4 runs. A Rashid Khan masterclass in the final 7 balls of the innings saw Hyderabad reach close to the target.

But they could not hit a six off the final ball to clinch an important win for Sunrisers. Having lost the toss and forced to bat first, Chennai Super Kings endured a tough start to their innings. They scored a mere 27 runs in the power play overs and were reeling at 41/2 in 9 overs.

Rayudu has put in a very good partnership with Suresh Raina. The latter also scored some quick runs to increase theย rate of scoring in the second half of the game. However, Rayudu was dismissed via a run out while trying to get a cheap second run.

He scored an impressive 79 runs off just 37 balls on a tough wicket. Suresh Raina stayed till the end and anchored the innings. An aggressive Dhoni knock at the end sent Chennai score to 182/3.

Chasing a massive 183, Sunrisers Hyderabad got to the worst possible start. Deepak Chahar took three wickets in the power play to hamper Sunrisers batsmen from getting any momentum. However, Shakib Al Hasan and Kane Williamson reconstructed the innings.

With the dismissal of Shakib, Yusuf Pathan played the best innings of this season’s IPL. But the duo were out trying to get some quick runs in the end. This has helped Chennai Super Kings clinch a narrow victory in the final overs.
