IPL 2018: Dwayne Bravo and MS Dhoni celebrate CSK victory

However, the SRH turned out to be the table toppers due to a higher net run rate.

Seventeen runs then gushed from the next over, leaving CSK with a mere six to get from the final over.

It was the fourth ball of the seventh over when Rashid went through Dhoni's defense and disturbed his leg stump. The SRH batting lineup didn't really recover from there, losing wickets occasionally, and ending up at 88/6 before Carlos Brathwaite put up an outstanding display that carried the SRH total past 100 and well into the 130s.

In one of the most telling images of this IPL - one that will be etched in the minds of ardent CSK supporters - du Plessis holds a shoe that was hurled at the Chennai players at the Chepauk Stadium on 10 April during the Cauvery river protests.

The best was, however, yet to come as Faf scored 20 runs off Brathwaite's 18th over, and with Shardul Thakur scoring 15 off 5 in Kaul's 19th over, leaving Bhuvi to defend just six runs in the last over, with Faf on strike.

For SRH, Rashid Khan, Siddarth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma picked up two wickets each, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar struck once - in the very first over.

Hyderabad had the match in its grip until the 17th over with Chennai needing 43 runs and three wickets in hand.

The New Zealand captain feathered a catch down leg-side ball off Shardul Thakur to rival captain Dhoni to leave Hyderabad reeling at 36 for 3 in the fifth over. Sunrisers Hyderabad stood at 47 for 6 after 6 overs.

The Chennai Super Kings bowlers were largely on the money. He conceded that the team fell short by 15-20 runs with the bat.

Paceman Dwayne Bravo set up the win with impressive bowling figures of two for 25 to restrict Hyderabad to 139-7.

For the second time in two matches, CSK reaped the benefit of experience. Du Plessis opened the batting ahead of the in-form Ambati Rayudu, anchored the chase, trusted his tail-end partners, and took CSK home with five balls and two wickets to spare. Brathwaite hit one boundary and four sixes in his 29-ball outing. The left-arm spinner generally darted the ball, had an excellent grouping on ball pitch, and seldom gave batsmen any room or length for them to swing their willow.

In the next three overs, Chennai failed to score a single boundary and also saw Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja make the long walks back to the pavilion as du Plessis remained stranded on the other end looking at more than half the team sitting dejectedly in the dugout.

Khan bowled Dhoni with his trademark googly for nine. He was part of Chennai's scheme of things till 2015 when the side faced a two-year suspension.

Faf du Plessis was retained by Chennai Super Kings using the RTM at IPL 2018 Auctions but he was not given too many matches this season.
