100 comes up for SRH after 15 overs

Bravo into the attack. Slow full-tosses and bouncers to ensure batsmen don’t get going. He’s at his deceptive best, CSK really missed him in the first three matches. But Abhishek picks length of the final ball and sends it towards the long-off region for a four.

8.38pm
Six from Abhishek Sharma

Abhishek Sharma and Priyam Garg in the middle. Jadeja continues in the 14th. Abhishek Sharma goes after him. A reverse sweep for four and a smash over midwicket for six. 14 runs off Jadeja’s second over. SRH-91/4 after 14 overs.

8.36pm

SRH under pressure. Dhoni is the master of such situations. He knows how to stop the run flow when opposition is facing the heat. Chawla goes for six runs. SRH-77/4 after 13 overs

8.30pm
End of 12 overs; SRH-71/4

Jadeja into the attack. Perfect time to come in after the fall of Warner. Good over from the left-arm spinner as he gives away just two singles.

8.29pm
SRH keep losing wickets

Kane Williamson run out. Williamson is angry! He calls for a single but is sent back by Priyam Garg. The throw is not a great one but Dhoni ensures the stumps are broken before Williamson crosses the line. FOW-69/4

8.27pm
David Warner dismissed for 28

Warner fails to clear the long-on fielder. Du Plessis jumps to take a brilliant catch. FOW-69/3

8.23pm

Bravo bowls his second over of the night. SRH-63/2 after 10 overs

8.15pm
Time for Strategic Timeout

Williamson joins Warner at 4. He gets off the mark with a boundary off Shardul, driven through the covers. The team 50 comes up in the 8th over. Piyush Chawla bowls the 9th over. Warner plays the reverse sweep for four off the first ball of spin he faces. SRH-60/2 after 9 overs

8.11pm

Pandey was looking so good in the middle but then comes up with a really bad shot. Kane Williamson is the new man in. Pretty sure we won’t see those kind of bad hits from Williamson. And to prove it, he comes up with a good-looking cover-drive to open his account. Two dots and a single off the last ball. SRH-52/2 after 8 overs

8.07pm

The man who looked dangerous is now walking off. Shardul Thakur did and excellent job and so did Sam Curran by catching that tracer bullet at the mid-off. Pandey departs for 29. SRH-47/2

8.05pm

Dhoni gives the ball to Bravo. Not bowling with a lot of pace and he has the protecting in the boundary. Both batsmen are not taking any risk in this over. Good start from him. Four singles and a wide. SRH-47/1 after 7 overs

8pm
End of Powerplay

SRH-42/1 after 6 overs

7.55pm

Chahar bowls his third over. The first three balls are on the shorter side. Pandey does well to find a boundary in the second ball, again taking the aerial route over mid-on fielder. A four and two singles from the over. Chahar gives away 18 runs from three overs with a wicket to his name. SRH-33/1 after 5 overs

7.51pm

Curran starts off with an out-swinger. Warner takes a quick single. Manish Pandey again gets a four against Curran by targetting the straight boundary. He’s looking in good touch, scoring boundaries every over and ensuring the runs keep flowing. Nine off the over. SRH-27/1 after 4 overs

7.45pm

Another straight drive down the ground for four from Pandey as Chahar continues in the 3rd over. Late swing from him troubles Warner. SRH-18/1 after 3 overs

7.41pm

Sam Curran bowls from the other end. Manish Pandey looks in good touch after clearing the mid off fielder for a boundary. Another six runs off the over. CSK-12/1 after 2 overs

7.36pm
Excellent start from CSK

Superb first over from the pacer. Just six runs and a wicket. CSK-6/1 after 1 over

7.34pm
Chahar strikes, Bairstow departs for duck

In swinging delivery from the Chahar shatters the stumps! Bairstow walks back without opening his account. FOW-1/1
