Sunrisers Hyderabad innings:

Over 20 || Score 191/7

Mohit Sharma to bowl the last over. Two runs came off the first three balls and then Steyn launched one over deep midwicket for a Six! The fifth ball was a full-toss and Steyn hit that straight down the ground for a couple. Steyn managed a single off the last ball and Chennai Super Kings won the match by 12 runs.

Dale Steyn 10* (5b) Hanuma Vihari 5* (3b)

====================================================================================

Over 19 || Score 179/7

Holder to bowl the penultimate over. Holder dismissed Sharma finally when he launched one straight to long-on where Murali Vijay took an easy catch. Holder bowled a length ball and Sammy smashed that straight down the ground for a Six! Sammy fell on the ground the moment he executed the shot, he reached his half-century off 24 balls. But Holder had the last laugh as he followed that six with a pin-point Yorker and Sammy was bowled! Hanuma Vihari was the new man in and he got off the mark with a handsome drive through covers which went for a boundary! 24 needed from the last over.

DJG Sammy b Holder 50 (25b)

KV Sharma c Vijay b Holder 11 (9b)

====================================================================================

Over 18 || Score 168/5

Bravo to bowl his third over. The second ball was a short delivery and Karan Sharma played it in the air, Raina ran in from mid-on to take a sitter, but dropped it at the last moment. Would you believe it, Raina has dropped one of the easiest catches. The fifth ball was a short delivery and Sharma charged down the wicket as the ball hit his helmet and went for four byes, also a no ball. The fifth ball was pitched outside the off-stump and Karan Sharma made some room for himself and slapped that over point for a boundary! The last ball was once again a short delivery, Sharma once again mistimed that in air and guess what, this time Michael Hussey spilled out a sitter! 13 runs from the over, Bravo would be fuming at the moment.

====================================================================================

Over 17 || Score 155/5

Holder brought back into the attack. He starts off with a short ball and Sammy smashes that to wide of long-on for a boundary! The third ball was a low full-toss and Sammy hit that towards deep square leg for a boundary! Holder ended the over with two good Yorkers. Sammy on strike, ten from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 16 || Score 145/5

Bravo to continue. He began the over with a short ball, and Ashish Reddy got a top edge and Dhoni ran quite some distance backwards and took a clean catch. Karan Sharma is the new man at the crease. Sharma smashed the last ball of the over for a boundary. 58 needed from last four overs.

A Ashish Reddy c Dhoni b Bravo 3 (4b)

====================================================================================

Over 15 || Score 136/4

Ravindra Jadeja brought into the attack. The second ball was a length delivery and Sammy launched that over wide of long-on for a Six! Sammy attempted another big stroke off the third ball, didn’t time it well but it went over long-off for another six! The last ball was a length delivery again and Sammy smashed that over long-on for his third six of the over! Superb over for Hyderabad, 22 runs from it.

====================================================================================

Over 14 || Score 115/4

Bravo into his second over. Perera tried to clear the fielder at mid-off, failed as it went straight to Murali Vijay at that position. The second ball was short and wide and Sammy slapped that over deep cover for a six! Nine runs from the over.

NLTC Perera c Vijay b Bravo 12 (11b)

====================================================================================

Over 13 || Score 106/3

Ashwin to bowl his third over. The third ball was slightly shorter and Perera launched that over deep midwicket for his first six of the innings. Ten from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 12 || Score 96/3

Dwayne Bravo comes into the attack. Perera mistimed a pull hgigh in the air but was lucky as the ball landed in no man’s land at long-on. Just five runs from the over. The complexion of the match has completely changed since Patel’s run-out.

====================================================================================

Over 11 || Score 91/3

Ashwin brought back into the attack, Thisara Perera is the new man in. He was the Man of the Match in the previous match and after those two quick wickets, Hyderabad would want him to score another big one here. The spin is now doing the magic as Dhawan is now caught behind off the last ball! It was pitched on middle-stump and it spun away from Dhawan as Dhoni took an excellent catch to dismiss his counterpart. Fine knock from Dhawan comes to an end. Just two from the over and a wicket for Ashwin. Four runs scored in the last two overs, three wickets lost. Hyderabad would be feeling the heat now.

S Dhawan c Dhoni b Ashwin 48 (34b)

====================================================================================

Over 10 || Score 89/2

Suresh Raina brought into the attack. And they have finally got the first breakthrough as Parthiv Patel is run-out! After all the hard work, it needed a confusion between the two left-handers that got Chennai their first wicket. But it has been an outstanding first wicket partnership – 87 runs. JP Duminy is the new man in. Two runs came off the first five balls and with pressure building, Duminy charged down the wicket off the last ball and was bowled! What an over from Raina, what a match he has had so far!

JP Duminy b Raina 0 (3b)

PA Patel run out 38 (28b)

====================================================================================

Over 9 || Score 87/0

Holder to continue. The third ball was full and Dhawan slashed hard as it went past Dhoni for a boundary! The last ball was a short delivery and Patel went after it and hit it straight to Sharma at deep fine leg! The umpires had a long chat after which they referred the decision to the third-umpire who agreed with their decision and Patel got a life. The fine leg was brought in for the last ball and Dhawan made room for himself and cleared the fielder at short fine leg to score another boundary! 12 from the over. The Chennai bowlers are under pressure now.

====================================================================================

Over 8 || Score 75/2

Morkel brought back into the attack. The first ball was short and Dhawan pulled that straight to Holder at mid-on who dropped a sitter! The second ball was a half-volley, Patel made some room for himself and went over the bowler’s head for a boundary! The fifth ball was short again, Patel charged down the wicket and pulled it for a boundary past deep midwicket. 11 from the over. These two are playing some fearless cricket at the moment. Chennai still searching for their first breakthrough.

====================================================================================

Over 7 || Score 64/0

James Holder brought into the attack. The third delivery was a half-volley and Dhawan handsomely drove that through covers for a boundary! Once again, Dhawan has played some magnificent strokes. Six runs from the over, Holder troubled Patel to an extent with his awkward bounce.

====================================================================================

Over 6 || Score 58/0

Ashwin to continue. Dhawan charged down the wicket off the fourth ball and went over the bowler’s head for a Six! Ten from the over. These two have made the best use of the power play by getting their side to a terrific start!

Shikhar Dhawan 36* (21b) Parthiv Patel 20* (15b)

====================================================================================

Over 5 || Score 48/0

Sharma into his third over. The first ball was a length delivery and Dhawan placed that beautifully between third man and point for a boundary! The fifth ball had some width and Patel pounced on that and cleared the fielder at point for a boundary! 11 from the over. Superb batting this!

====================================================================================

Over 4 || Score 37/0

Ravichandran Ashwin introduced into the attack. The third ball was a length delivery and Dhawan swept that fine through midwicket for a boundary! The last ball spun away from Parthiv Patel who played with the spin and slapped the ball past the fielder at mid-off for a boundary! 11 runs from the over. Excellent batting from the two left-handers so far.

====================================================================================

Over 3 || Score 26/0

Sharma to continue. The fourth ball was a length delivery and Dhawan scooped that over short fine leg for a boundary! Dhawan charged down the wicket off the last ball and drove that through covers for another boundary. Good start by Hyderabad so far, they need to keep those boundaries coming! Ten from the over.

====================================================================================

====================================================================================

Chennai Super Kings innings:

Over 20 || Score 202/4

Sammy to bowl the final over. Bravo attempted a big shot off the first ball, didn’t connect and the ball produced a single. MS Dhoni hit the second ball towards wide of long-on and ran two runs and reached his half-century off just 16 balls! That’s the fastest in Champions League T20 history. Dhoni then once again smashed two consecutive sixes off the third and the fourth ball and took a single off the penultimate delivery. Bravo took a couple off the last ball as Chennai reached a mammoth total of 202 runs!

MS Dhoni 63* (19b) Dwayne Bravo 6* (4b)

====================================================================================

Over 19 || Score 183/4

Steyn to bowl his last over. An incredible knock from Raina ended when he hit one straight to Perera at deep midwicket. Dwayne Bravo is the new man in. The last ball was a full-toss and Dhoni worked that past the fielder at point for a boundary! Dhoni moves to 48, the crowd anticipating his half-century. Eight runs from the over.

SK Raina c Perera b Steyn 84 (57b)

====================================================================================

Over 18 || Score 175/4

Perera to bowl his third over. He started off with a wide and then Dhoni launched him for a six straight down the ground off the first delivery! And the over proved to be a nightmare for Perera as Dhoni went on to hit four consecutive sixes off the last four balls of the over! That was some incredible hitting from the CSK skipper as the over produced 34 runs! Perera has now given 60 runs from his first three overs.

====================================================================================

Over 17 || Score 141/3

Steyn brought back into the attack. Five runs from the over. Both the batsmen showed some respect to the great bowler.

Over 16 || Score 136/3

Ishant brought back to bowl his final over. Third ball was a full-toss and Raina smashed that past midwicket for a boundary! Ten runs from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 15 || Score 126/3

Duminy brought back into the attack. And the move worked as Badrinath charged down the wicket off the first ball and hit one straight to the fielder at long-on. Skipper MS Dhoni has come to the crease. Mahi didn’t make the home spectators wait for long as he launched the fifth ball for a six straight down the ground. 11 from the over. We are expecting more fireworks in the next five overs.

S Badrinath c Steyn b Duminy 13 (18b)

====================================================================================

Over 14 || Score 115/2

Sammy to continue. The first ball was short and wide and Raina cleared the fielder at point to score another boundary! He’s now timing his shots really well, his wicket is the key at the moment. The third ball was a half-volley and Raina launched it straight down the ground for a Six! And with that six, Raina has now scored 500 runs in Champions League Twenty20. What a player! 14 from the over. Raina and Badrinath have added unbeaten 70 runs for the third wicket.

Suresh Raina 71* (45b) Subramaniam Badrinath 13* (17b)

====================================================================================

Over 13 || Score 101/2

Perera to continue. The fourth ball was pitched on the leg-side and Raina flicked that towards deep square leg for a boundary and reached his half-century off 38 balls. Perera tried to bowl a Yorker off the fifth ball which ended being a low full-toss and Raina once again worked that towards deep square leg for another boundary! Expensive over from Perera, 16 runs from it.

====================================================================================

Over 12 || Score 85/2

Darren Sammy brought into the attack. Six runs from the over. With eight overs to go, the batsmen need to accelerate from here onwards. Raina, being the set batsman, will have to take some chances.

====================================================================================

Over 11 || Score 79/2

Thisara Perera brought into the attack. The fourth ball slipped out of Perera’s hands and it went for 5 wides. Ten from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 10 || Score 69/2

Mishra to continue. He troubled Raina with a few deliveries before the left-hander clobbered him towards deep midwicket for a boundary! Eight runs from the over. The first ten overs have been pretty decent for the Chennai Super Kings. They would want to add another 80-90 runs from here onwards.

Suresh Raina 38* (30b) Subramaniam Badrinath 6* (7b)

====================================================================================

Over 9 || Score 61/2

====================================================================================

Over 7 || Score 48/2

Duminy to continue. And he gets the big fish – Michel Hussey is caught behind! It was pitched on middle-stump and it spun sharply and Mr. Cricket edged it to Parthiv Patel who took a good catch. The 45-run partnership is broken. Badrinath is the new man in. Four runs from the over and a big wicket for Duminy.

MEK Hussey c Patel b Duminy 23 (21b)

====================================================================================

Over 6 || Score 44/1

Ishant to bowl his third over. The third ball was pitched short and Michael Hussey handsomely pulled that for a six over deep square leg! Hussey then guided the last ball of the over to third man for a boundary! 15 runs from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 5 || Score 29/1

JP Duminy has been brought into the attack. Decent over, just four runs from it.

====================================================================================

Over 4 || Score 25/1

Ishant to continue. He offered some width off the first ball and Hussey drove that through covers for a boundary! The third ball once again had width on offer, Hussey went after it but was dropped by Karan Sharma at point! The fifth ball was slightly short and wide and Raina cleared the off-side field for another boundary! 11 from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 3 || Score

Steyn to continue. Excellent over from Steyn, he’s bowling with a lot of rhythm and of course pace! Just two from the over.

====================================================================================

Over 2 || Score 12/1

Ishant Sharma to bowl from the other end. Good over from Ishant, just four runs from it.

====================================================================================

Over 1 || Score 8/1

Michael Hussey and Murali Vijay to open for Chennai, Dale Steyn will bowl the first over. And the South African silenced his critics as he dismissed Murali Vijay off the second ball as the right-hander went to drive a ball that had some width and edged it to first slip and Dhawan took a neat catch. The fifth ball was pitched on the leg-side and Raina comfortably worked that towards deep square leg for a boundary! The last delivery was a half-volley and Raina slapped that past the fielder at mid-on for another boundary! Eight from the over.

M Vijay c Dhawan b Steyn 0 (2b)

====================================================================================

TOSS: Shikhar Dhawan has won the toss and he has decided to bowl first.

====================================================================================

Chennai Super Kings proved what a formidable side they are as they convincingly chased down a formidable total posted by Titans in their first match of the tournament. While AB de Villiers went after the Chennai bowlers, Suresh Raina and Michael Hussey later on stitched a match-winning partnership. MS Dhoni had an ordinary match and we can expect some fireworks from him on his homeground, now that he is due.

On the other hand, the Dhawan-led Sunrisers Hyderabad are one of the teams to watch out for in the tournament. They played like champions in the qualifiers and won their first match against Trinidad&Tobago. The team management would want Shikhar Dhawan to once again lead from the front.

Teams:

Chennai (From): Michael Hussey, Murali Vijay, Suresh Raina, S Badrinath, Dwayne Bravo, MS Dhoni(w/c), Ravindra Jadeja, Albie Morkel, Jason Holder, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohit Sharma, Faf du Plessis, Chris Morris, Imtiyaz Ahmed, Wriddhiman Saha

Hyderabad (From): Parthiv Patel(w), Shikhar Dhawan(c), Jean-Paul Duminy, Hanuma Vihari, Thisara Perera, Darren Sammy, Ashish Reddy, Karan Sharma, Amit Mishra, Dale Steyn, Ishant Sharma, Anand Rajan, Biplab Samantray, Cameron White
