Suresh Raina is the Man of the Match. That's it from us then. Tomorrow is a double-header coming up. So do join us for that. Till then, farewell!

Commentary (Chennai Super Kings innings)

Suresh Raina is the Man of the Match. That's it from us then. Tomorrow is a double-header coming up. So do join us for that. Till then, farewell!

The chase was not quite on from Hyderabad as they lost wickets quite easily. Cameron White once again shown in the spotlight with a superb 77. Only Dhawan could support him and the birthday boy, Daniel Christian played a decent but slow knock at the end. They fell short by 10 runs and one might feel that Hyderabad may have just postponed the big hitting by an over or so.

19.6 Ben Hilfenhaus to A Jhunjhunwala, CHENNAI WIN BY 10 RUNS! Low full toss at 136 kph, hit straight to point for a single. Handshakes all over and the captain, MS Dhoni hardly shows any emotions on the face, inspite of a crucial win. 150/5

19.5 Ben Hilfenhaus to D Christian, Fuller outside off, on the yorker zone, hit through covers for one. Chennai have won it here, unless something dramatic comes up. 149/5

Abhishek Jhunjhunwala comes to bat.

19.4 Ben Hilfenhaus to A Reddy, OUT! Reddy is gone now! Fuller outside off, Reddy just slices it uppishly over covers. Does not get much connection as Murali Vijay takes it in the deep. 13 off TWO BALLS NOW! And Christian to face strike! 148/5

19.3 Ben Hilfenhaus to A Reddy, Low full toss on middle, hit down the ground for a couple of runs. 148/4

19.1 Ben Hilfenhaus to D Christian, FOUR! Good shot. A fuller length, just outside off, Christian gets across and just about manages to flick it past square leg. 16 OFF THE LAST FIVE BALLS! 145/4

A very interesting total of 160 from Chennai. It looked a hard batting track but the Hyderabad bowlers took the pace off and did not allow the batsmen to get going. du Plessis and Dhoni built good scores while Steyn and Ashish Reddy displayed a good show with the ball.

19.6 D Christian to D Bravo, Bravo hits it down to long on. There is two on offer and they take it to end the innings. 160/6

19.5 D Christian to D Bravo, Over-pitched again, Bravo knocks it down to long off for a couple. 158/6

19.4 D Christian to D Bravo, SIX! Went many a mile and still into the stands! Fuller length, Bravo this time, gives the full swing of his blade as the ball hangs in the air for an eternity, and when it comes down, beats Steyn at deep mid-wicket. 156/6

19.3 D Christian to D Bravo, DROPPED! A disastrous piece of fielding. Full toss outside off, Bravo hoicks with his bat handle giving away, Parthiv Patel runs back, without calling for it at all as Ankit Sharma from short fine leg, settles under it, but the distraction is caused and he spills a dolly. Two runs, nevertheless, a bonus for Dhoni's men. 150/6

19.2 D Christian to S Badrinath, Short of a length outside off, heaved across to mid on for a single. 148/6

Subramaniam Badrinath walks in at number 8. Wonder how many times he has batted in this position.

19.1 D Christian to MS Dhoni, OUT! Birthday boy gets the skipper! Short of a length outside off, Dhoni just pulls it, as the ball is not that pacy, and only manages a bottom edge to cannon onto his sticks. 147/6

Here we are. Faf du Plessis and Murali Vijay are the openers out. Ankit Sharma will bowl first up. The left-arm spinner.

TOSS - Sangakkara spins the coin and Dhoni wins the toss. CHENNAI WILL BAT FIRST. Two changes for them. Michael Hussey sits out for Ben Hilfenhaus. Murali Vijay gets a game as well in place of Yo Mahesh. Hyderabad have a couple of changes as well. Daniel Christian replaces JP Duminy while Biplap Samantray while sit out in place of Abhishek Jhunjhunwala.

Chennai, the defending champions have looked lackluster. With just 9 points in 10 matches, they should be hoping to start turning on the tables as the final stages approaches.

Hello all and welcome to Match 46 between Hyderabad and Chennai of the Indian T20 league. Hyderabad have completely faltered since the tournament begun, but they have two out of their last three matches and they would be hoping to not have one more close finish in this match.
