IPL 2018: MS Dhoni reveals secret behind CSK's seventh appearance in final
May 23, 2018, 20:38
Hyderabad nearly had one foot in the final, but didn't play big moments well will now be taking on either Kolkata or Rajasthan.
Wary of the dew factor later in the evening, Dhoni had earlier opted to field against 2016 champions Hyderabad and paceman Deepak Chahar gave Chennai a flawless start by dismissing opener Shikhar Dhawan for a first ball duck. Williamson can consider himself unlucky as he was dismissed off a nothing ball - it was short and wide but the Hyderabad captain gloved it to Dhoni. He was spotted sporting the salt and pepper look and enjoying the match supporting the orange army of Sunrisers. But, Chennai have proved their doubters wrong, again! Williamson, who has enjoyed a terrific tournament amassing more than 600 runs, tried to fix the innings in the company of the other opener Goswami and the duo put on 34 runs before Goswami fell to fast bowler Lungi Ngidi. Six overs were done and the South Africa captain had faced just six deliveries. After this heroic act, Carlos Brathwaite's career has not taken off due to various reasons.
He became the eighth CSK player to win the Player-of-the-match award in IPL 2018.
Carlos Brathwaite came into this match at a hard stage (69/5) and Hyderabad's innings was going nowhere. Starting then, the rub of the green went against SRH on several occasions; Kane Williamson (24) and Shakib al Hasan gloved the ball to be caught down the leg-side, while Shreevats Goswami and Yusuf Pathan (24) were at the receiving end of sensational return catches.
Faf du Plessis was the man-of-the-match for his sturdy innings, which later turned into absolute explosiveness, and took CSK to the important win. All told, du Plessis hit 27 off 11 balls from Brathwaite at a strike-rate of 245.45.
CSK booked their place in the Indian Premier League (IPL) final for the seventh time on Tuesday and it seems that there was nothing that could hold back the team from celebrating. The batting performance by the Hyderabad franchise was not the most professional one apart from Carlos Brathwaite. It was Thakur who got Chennai their biggest breakthrough.
With Deepak Chahar proving his innings against Punjab was no fluke, the equations started to get slightly skewed in Chennai's favour but a hugely-disputed catch from Brathwaite off Sharma's bowling saw Chennai tottering at 92/7 after 15 overs.
Bravo had earlier fallen cheaply in the 12th over, edging a long hop from Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan to slip for seven.
Just when Hyderabad would have thought that the match is in their control, they took the foot off the pedal and paid a heavy price.
With Faf du Plessis coming to form in the Qualifier, the right-hander will mostly spend the final on the bench and will not have much to complain against.
