But CSK captain MS Dhoni backed Du Plessis for the Qualifier 1 against Sunrisers Hyderabad and the South African used all his experience to pull off a senstional chase and take CSK to the IPL 2018 Final. Let's wait and see if Venky falls into the league of senior actors who are quite comfortable with their salt and pepper look. He probably could've played if he was pushed but he was uncomfortable.

"Can't believe that we won that game last night!" he wrote. "We've got different combinations that we can use and today I'm very happy that Faf was able to contribute the way he did", said Fleming in his post-match media conference.

The result: Sunrisers Hyderabad 7-139 (Brathwaite 43no, Bravo 2-25) lost to Chennai Super Kings 8-140 (Du Plessis 67no, Rashid 2-11) by two wickets with five balls remaining.

"The player today who hasn't played that much came out on a bigger stage of the tournament today and for Faf to do that is testament to his skills set and his mindset as well".

"That's where (du Plessis') experience counts".

As du Plessis threw his hands up in the air to celebrate, CSK players ran towards him to hug him and scream over their victory. Chennai seamers had the combined figures of 4/126 in 16 overs, which proved to be the difference in the match.

Du Plessis waged a lone battle as wickets fell in a heap at the other end with Sandeep Sharma getting rid of Ravindra Jadeja and Deepak Chahar.

Even the SRH bowlers began perfectly with Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowling a breathtaking first over, picking one wicket and giving just a single run.

Riding on MS Dhoni's shoulder, Chennai Super Kings managed to file its seventh appearance into the IPL 2018 finals. It was a good game of cricket, but if we are honest with ourselves, we were a few runs short with the bat. And you can't do that without the players and the support staff. And then, du Plessis played only four games before Tuesday. "Being in the top two gives us that liberty to have one more game", Dhoni says.

"If we would've lost, you still give yourself a second chance".

While Chennai Super Kings' batting has won them matches easily, Sunrisers bowling lineup has blown away opposition teams, even while defending a low total. Du Plessis survived the storm, played out the most hard bowler in the opposition (Rashid Khan), and turned on the heat just at the right time.

Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson, lone foreigner to lead an IPL team this season, hit four crisp boundaries in his 24 but they kept losing wickets at regular intervals. With wickets falling rapidly and the equation at 43 runs required from the final three overs, he deposited Carlos Brathwaite (0-31) for four boundaries in an over and then sealed an unlikely victory with a six.

Rashid Khan bowled a terrific spell when the Sunrisers Hyderabad had their opportunity to defend. I just got in the change room now and said, how did we win that game.
