After 16 overs, CSK was at 154/2 while it then needed only 25 runs off 24 balls with 8 wickets in hand.

CSK secured their finals berth with a hard-fought victory over SRH in the first playoff. In a batting friendly track at the Wankhede stadium here, Yusuf, who came when the scoreboard was reading 101/3, played a good knock to propel Hyderabad to a good total in their 20 overs.

Put in to bat, Sunrisers found themselves under severe pressure after opener Shreevats Goswami dismissal quite early in the innings.

Sunrisers, who won the title under Warner in 2016, had topped the league table before suffering a losing streak.

Afghan leaders have also praised Rashid for his performance. Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni are some crucial and powerful batsmen of CSK.

But once he put his foot on the pedal in the sixth over, Watson literally toyed with the Sunrisers bowlers to finish unbeaten on 117 off 57 balls, his second hundred of the season.

At a time when Kane Williamson was starting to look threatening, some clever bowling from Karn Sharma got the better of him and his wicket is the best dismissal of the match.

He said the referendum result marked "the day Ireland stepped out from under the last of our shadows and into the light". He said Savita's death had devastated the family. "That was a sepsis issue that was mishandled".


So impressed were the Indian cricket lovers that they wondered on the social media if Rashid could be given an Indian citizenship and allowed to play for India. The much-awaited match will be an exciting match and we can't wait to see which team takes the trophy home.

Earlier, KKR bowlers did not get a wicket inside the powerplay but their pace battery of Shivam Mavi, Krishna and Russell bowled with pace and accuracy to stymie Sunrisers run flow.

Meanwhile, Rashid Khan, who was in super form and was the cynosure of all eyes for SRH fans, couldn't get chance to bat. This is the big one, and we are excited.

Chennsi Super Kings: 181 for two in 18.3 overs (Shane Watson 117 not out; Carlos Brathwaite 1/27). While SRH have been nearly untouchable this season, CSK have proved that they have all the goods to be IPL champions.

Reinstated into the IPL after a two-year ban, CSK outplayed SRH by eight wickets in a high-pressure game. Today they face the second qualifier match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

CSK's bowling attack also has a well-oiled look, giving them a well-rounded appearance.

With nine players in the squad over the age of 30, CSK were laughed at the beginning of the tournament for assembling seasoned players in the high pumped up environment where energetic youngsters make their mark. It was expected to be another nail-biter but Watson made the match one-sided with his powerful hitting as Chennai chased down 179 in a canter. Popular betting website, BetVictor also predicts CSK to be IPL 2018 victor with odds of 3:4 as compared to that of SRH's odds of 21:20.
