Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

Jos Buttler hit a sensational 95 not out off 60 balls to help Rajasthan Royals beat Chennai Super Kings by four wickets and stay alive in the Indian Premier League on Friday.

Earlier, opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan and captain Kane Williamson continued their top form this season as the two batsmen struck fluent half-centuries to take Sunrisers to 179 for 4 after being sent in to bat. This will be the third time he scores 400-plus runs in an IPL season and his first after 4 seasons. On the course of his hundred, he smashed 7 boundaries and 7 sixes and reached the 100 run mark with a single off the 5th ball of the 19th over from Bhuvneshwar. Even Betfair UK has placed an evens bet on a Sunrisers win, while CSK remain favourites with 10/11 odds.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad face the Chennai Super Kings at Pune for the first match of Sunday's double-header. Chennai temporarily applied the brakes on Rajasthan's chase by leaking only 27 runs from overs 16 to 18.

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.

Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, have had a near-perfect run in IPL 2018, thanks largely to their bowling attack.

May, however, warned that there will "be compromises", but vowed that she "will not let you down". The EU has expressed doubts about whether either option would work.


After Over 15: CSK - 143 runs with the loss of 2 wickets.

On what was an off day for their bowlers, Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Kane Williamson had stepped up with the bat as Sunrisers gunned down a 188-run target easily, thereby showcasing their all-round might. CSK have missed Deepak Chahar's four overs, given how inconsistent their other bowlers have been. SRH's nine-wicket victory over DD while chasing close to 190 is an astounding feat for a team that was struggling to score above 150 just a few matches ago. The defeat was shocking because CSK was expected to put it across easily against the Royals, a team which languishes in the bottom-half of the points tally at the 6 th spot with just eight points from 11 matches. This was clinical hitting against bowlers who were now under pressure.

It worked as in the next seven overs, only 51 runs were scored. The duo, however, departed in quick succession to give a twist to the match.

In the bowling department, spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Harbhajan Singh came into their own on the slow Pune surface against Royal Challengers Bangalore, sharing five wickets for 40 runs from their eight overs. Not only was the 123-run stand broken, but Hyderabad also slipped to 141 for 3 in the 17th over, with two new batsmen in.
