SRH vs CSK: Head-to-head, Playing XI and other interesting stats

But they ended by on 178 for 6, losing the game by 4 runs. In his next over, he sent Manish Pandey packing for a duck and then got the wicket of Deepak Hooda too.

Batting first, Suresh Raina (54 not out off 43 balls) and Ambati Rayudu (79 off 37 balls) 110 runs for the 3rd wicket after CSK lost two early wickets. Yusuf Pathan continued with his cameo even after Williamson's departure but he failed to stay till the last.

With everything going Chennai's way, Williamson and Pathan staged a terrific fightback with their 79-run partnership, punishing every Chennai bowler.

With the top order collapsing around him, Williamson struck five fours and five sixes in a heady knock.

The Kane Willamson-led side will have to forget the battering of his bowlers by Gayle and quickly regroup against the Super Kings who, despite having to shift their home venue to Pune due to the Cauvery water dispute, have been doing very well. He can only get a single off the last ball, off which SRH need six to win, as Bravo fires a ideal yorker to tie him up.

WICKET! Chahar bowls an in-swinger that comes in sharp.

Chennai Super Kings: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain/wicket-keeper), Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Faf du Plessis, Harbhajan Singh, Dwayne Bravo, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayudu, Deepak Chahar, KM Asif, Kanishk Seth, Lungi Ngidi, Dhruv Shorey, Murali Vijay, Sam Billings, Mark Wood, Kshitiz Sharma, Monu Kumar, Chaitanya Bishnoi, Imran Tahir, Karn Sharma, Shardul Thakur, N Jagadeesan, David Willey. Rayudu scored a punchy 49 at No. 3 against Kings XI Punjab but once Raina returned, he was asked to open again. Watson smashed nine fours and six sixes before he finally fell off the penultimate ball of the innings when he was caught behind off Ben Laughlin (2-38).

The Spurs don't play well when trailing in a series as they are just 1-5 ATS and SU in their last six when behind. Golden State opened as a 3-point favorite, while the Over/Under (O/U) for the game has been set at 206 points.

Raina raised his first half-century in this year's IPL and hit five fours and two sixes before Dhoni gave the innings a flawless finish with a 12-ball unbeaten 25.

20th Indian Premier League clash is between both powerful teams Hyderabad and Chennai.

Put in to bat, CSK came out with a different opening combination of Faf du Plesis and Shane Watson with du Plesis playing his first match of the season after recovering from injury.

While he had Heinrich Klaasen dropped by Watson off the very first ball, Chahar made full use of the swinging ball under lights as he dismissed the unsafe Sanju Samson and skipper Ajinkya Rahane within the powerplay itself. At the same time, Dhoni's team would be desperate to continue their victory chariot. In the meantime, they scored 140 runs so far. He is a big player for us, he has been hitting the ball nicely and scoring a lot of runs for us. Kishan posted a steady 58 off 42 balls which included four boundaries and three sixes. He finished with figures of 1/37 in the three overs that he bowled. Kulkarni struck the first blow for the hosts in the very first over when Lewis dragged an inside edge on to his stumps.

WICKET! A weird end to Rayudu's fabulous knock.

CSK staged a comeback through this pair.
