SRH vs CSK: Abhishek Sharma & Aiden Markram take Hyderabad to another win

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings are coming off losses away from home against the Gujarat Titans and the Delhi Capitals.

SRH vs CSK Live Score, Match 18: Aiden Markram and Abhishek Sharma ensured that they took Sunrisers Hyderabad to a rousing win over Chennai Super Kings, as the latter lost their second consecutive match. But the foundations of the SRH win were laid in the first innings itself, courtesy of solid bowling spells by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Pat Cummins, who returned with match figures of 1/28 & 1/29, respectively.

Who Won Yesterday’s IPL Match?

Sunrisers Hyderabad registered their second win in four matches this year, after beating Chennai Super Kings by six wickets on Friday. It was largely due to the efforts of Shivam Dube (45), that CSK managed to score 165, but that didn’t prove enough on the day. Abhishek Sharma scored 37 off 12, and Markram smashed 50 from 36 to take Hyderabad home.

Bhuvi from the other end

And from the other end. It’s a sedate start from the CSK batsmen as it is 13/0 after 2 overs.

Abhishek starts

SRH start with spinner Abhishek Sharma, who is in form these days. Ravindra starts with a four here, and the ball was a little wayward. After 1st over CSK 7/0.

Rutu says..

It’s going pretty well, the group is responding well. Nothing much changes for me, obviously this is a new challenge, but I’m feeling good. Pathirana has a niggle – three changes for us, Moeen Ali,Theekshana and Mukesh Chowdhary come in. The bowlers are ready to go and so are the youngsters.
