chase. A win in the IPL final 2018 was a reply to everyone who doubted them.
For someone who wielded a willow that appeared to have sweet-spots wherever the ball made contact, Yuvraj struggled to find the middle of the bat against modest bowlers in less demanding circumstances. After Bhuvneshwar started with a maiden over against Watson, Sunrisers restricted CSK to only 35 for 1 in the Powerplay before they took on Siddarth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma.
Raina chipped in with 32 off 24 balls. (Ambati) Rayudu for example is 33, he's someone who is fit, covers a lot of ground. Soon, the Australian slammed his second century of the season off just 51 deliveries through a single off Rashid Khan. For Hyderabad, Carlos Brathwaite and Sharma took one wicket each. Despite having a total of nine players over 30 years of age and the team's average age being 34 and a half years, they proved experience can be the difference between reaching a final and winning it.
The Baroda batsman's unbeaten innings contained four boundaries and a couple of hits into the stands.
Raina survived a run out early into his innings.
Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja broke the partnership in the ninth over as he clean bowled Dhawan on 26 runs.
SRH skipper Williamson became the first batsman to cross the 700-run mark in IPL 2018.
However, in a desperate attempt, Williamson came down the wicket trying to play big, but the ball drifted away and then Dhoni did the rest behind the stumps. SRH could only manage 178 in the end, after a smashing beginning. "There was emotion involved in wanting to do well and getting back into the competition", Chennai Super Kings head coach Stephen Fleming said.
