Currently, the last season’s finalists Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are locking horns with each other at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. After winning the toss, the CSK skipper, Suresh Raina decided to bat first. However, the visitors started on a decent note as both their openers, Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson started off cautiously.
During the toss, the SRH skipper, Kane Williamson revealed that they have made a couple of changes to their squad as Ricky Bhui and Abhishek Sharma made way for Yusuf Pathan and Shahbaz Nadeem. On the other hand, CSK also had a couple of changes in their squad as MS Dhoni and Mitchell Santner made way for Sam Billings, and Karn Sharma.
Watson and Du Plessis added just 41 runs in powerplay owing to some brilliant bowling by the SRH bowlers. However, the Aussies all-rounder got out to Shahbaz Nadeem in the 10th over before taking the partnership to the 79-run mark. Soon after that, even Du Plessis was also dismissed in the next over of Vijay Shankar.
After those dismissals, Raina started a partnership with Ambati Rayudu but it didn’t last long as the former was dismissed by Rashid Khan on the first ball of the 14th over. Khan delivered a length ball on the stumps and Raina was looking to drag it on the leg side but missed it and the ball struck right in front. Raina took the DRS after the umpire gave it out, but in the replays, it was shown that the ball was clipping the stumps.
On the fourth ball of the same over, Rashid got the wicket of Kedar Jadhav as well as he bowled another googly and Jadhav came forward while looking to play around his pad, but he missed and the ball struck in front of the middle. Jadhav also went on for DRS and the replays show that the ball was clipping the top of leg stump.
Here is the video of the dismissals:
