IPL 2018 Final Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

Kolkata: Sunrisers Hyderabad spinners wrecked havoc on Kolkata Knight Riders batsmen as they reach 112/5 after 13 ...

On Sunday, SRH is ready to face the powerful team CSK in the IPL finals.

If that was not enough, Rashid was also involved in a run out and then took two catches while fielding close to the boundary rope in the last over as his team won by 14 runs and advanced to the final against Chennai Super Kings at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium. After scoring 56 for Rajasthan in 2008 in a player of the match performance, the 35-year-old was just as brutal with an unbeaten-45 from just 25 balls for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The CSK batting was left floundering at 62 for 6 with Rashid taking out danger men skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Dwayne Bravo. And Shane Watson hadn't slowed down after fall of Raina's wicket. The strike mostly remained with Watson and the Australian all-rounder took advantage beautifully by unleashing some ferocious shots.

Chennai Super Kings are playing for the third time against SunRisers Hyderabad. For Hyderabad, Carlos Brathwaite and Sharma took one wicket each. After SRH scored 139 runs in their 20 overs, the Chennai batsmen had their work cut out due to some stupendous bowling led by young Rashid Khan. Along with a six, Watson had also hit a four in the over. He came in at the departure of opener Shreevats Goswami in the second over, and played his typically delightful shots on a pitch where timing the ball was not easy. It has the support of batsmen like Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson who are in great form in the present league.




Dhawan's opening partner Wriddhiman Saha, who made a comeback after a while, got a "life" on five before finding his touch and contributing an important 35 off 27 deliveries. Rahul scored 659 runs at 54.91, while Buttler amassed 548 runs and played a pivotal in RR's journey to playoffs. After Williamson's fall, Shakib and Yusuf Pathan added 32 runs off 22 balls, but SRH lost Shakib and Deepak Hooda in a space of seven balls.

But when things seemed good in the middle, Bravo packed back Shakib (23 off 15) in the 16th over, leaving Hyderabad at 133/4. It was a fitting showdown between the two top sides of the competition.

The match in a tweet: Timeless Shane Watson delivers on cue, a century in the final handing Chennai a record-equalling third title!

Sunrisers Hyderabad will be hoping it's fourth time lucky against the Chennai Super Kings after suffering three defeats already to MS Dhoni's side.
