Strong all-round effort from Bravo helps Chennai to healthy win

In 20th April, 2018 the 17th match of Indian Premier League was executed at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune which is the home venue of Chennai Super Kings. Rashid Khan played some big shots during the fag end of the match and scored 17 runs off 4 balls with one four and 2 sixes, but it wasn't enough to win the match. No matter how close SRH reached in the end, it was Chahar's effort at the top which played it's part to make the chase hard for the hosts. But swing bowler Deepak Chahar sent tremors in SRH camp as he snuffed out the Andhra lad, Manish Pandey and Deepak Hooda in the first five overs. The visiting team then stopped the hosts at 178 for six, with medium pacer Deepak Chahar doing the bulk of the damage.

The win helped MS Dhoni's team climb to the top of the table where they are level on 8 points with Kings XI but are ahead owing to a superior net run rate.

Rajasthan pulled back through leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal (3-20), who removed Raina, MS Dhoni (5) and Sam Billings (3) in successive overs. With 19 needed off the last over, Rashid Khan lifted the home team's hopes as he struck one six and one four and reduced the margin to six off the final ball.

Ambati Rayudu's masterclass was almost outdone by one from Kane Williamson, but Chennai Super Kings survived that attack from Sunrisers' captain and then a Yusuf Pathan cameo to crawl to the top of the table.

CSK used seven bowlers and nearly all of them were among wickets with Chahar, Thakur, Bravo and Sharma picking two each while Tahir and Watson getting one each.

The match witnessed some powerful big hitting knocks by from four batsmen Ambati Raydhu, Suresh Raina for Chennai Super Kings and Kane Williamson and Yusuf Pathan for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Raina has returned, and he played a great inning of 46 runs against the Royals.

"The start was not good but we had a very good partnership in the middle".

Faf du Plessis played his first match of the season today.

Raina raised his first half-century in this year's IPL and hit five fours and two sixes before Dhoni gave the innings a ideal finish with a 12-ball unbeaten 25. "I think the new ball on that surface was very tough, and as the ball got older I think it became a little bit more even". In the past few games, he had only been bowling one over per game.

The right-handed Bravo finished unbeaten on 24 from 16 balls with four boundaries. He was the standout bowler, picking 3/20 in his 4 overs.

However, Raydu was run-out by Siddarth Kaul and Kane Williamson. The moment Shakib tried changing that, he fell to Karn Sharma. He got out at 45 off only 27 balls with 1 four and 4 sixes.
