Commentary (Chennai Super Kings innings)

Interesting thoughts from Ayaz Memon who tweets, "Chennai have shown champion quality in scoring 193.But West Indies fans must be wondering why Dwayne Bravo in this form is not playing v Oz?"

Wow, what power-hitting towards the end by Dwayne Bravo. He smacked an 18-ball 43 and has helped his side post a big total on the board. Chennai hammered 72 in the last five overs and punished the Hyderabadi bowlers to all parts of the park. Faf du Plessis provided a fine start, Jadeja capitalized on it in the middle and Bravo gave it the finishing touch. Steyn and Christian survived the onslaught and picked up a couple of wickets apiece at a good economy rate. The pitch is true for batting and expect an intriguing run chase. Join us in a while...

19.6 M Gony to D Bravo, SIX! Finishes it in style! Gony dishes out a full toss outside off, Bravo throws his heart and soul behind the shot and dismisses it over the long off fence. Chennai finish on 193/6 in their 20 overs. 193/6

19.6 M Gony to D Bravo, No ball for height! Hurls in a slower bouncer but it goes well above the batsman's head. Bravo leaves it alone. 187/6

19.5 M Gony to D Bravo, Short in length, pulled across the line for a couple at deep square leg. 186/6

19.4 M Gony to D Bravo, A low full toss outside off, drilled through the extra cover and came back for the second run. 184/6

19.3 M Gony to D Bravo, SIX! Bravo! A length delivery on middle, Bravo hops back and clobbers it just over the leaping long on fielder for a maximum. That was a top edge but still it managed to clear the fielder in the deep. 182/6

19.2 M Gony to D Bravo, SIX! Out of here! Gony serves a full toss on middle and Bravo has no problem in sending it over the cow corner boundary. 176/6

19.1 M Gony to D Bravo, Bravo goes for the pull but misses it completely. 170/6

18.6 T Sudhindra to A Morkel, Caresses it through extra cover for a couple of runs. 170/6

18.5 T Sudhindra to D Bravo, Full in length on off, driven through covers for one. 168/6

18.4 T Sudhindra to D Bravo, SIX! Another biggie. Bravo once again swings his blade firmly across the line and deposits it into the long on stands. Got a big elevation there not quite the distance but still it landed beyond the ropes. 167/6

18.3 T Sudhindra to D Bravo, SIX! Mishit but it has cleared the fence. A fuller length delivery on middle and leg, Bravo attempts to whip it across the line but it flies off the leading edge. Still it has got enough wings to clear the fence straight down the ground. 161/6

18.2 T Sudhindra to A Morkel, Short delivery on middle and leg, Morkel fails to pull and once again Parthiv is sloppy behind the wickets. A bye! 155/6

18.1 T Sudhindra to D Bravo, Dropped! A full delivery on off and the batsman hammers it back to the bowler. Sudhindra gets down to take the catch but fails to hold on to it. They pick up a single. 154/6

Ravindra Jadeja gets the Man of the Match award for his all-round show in the game. 48 runs off 29 balls and followed it up with bowling figures of 5 for 16. That's it from us. Join us tomorrow for the Sunday double-header. Cheers!

Big total on the board and then a fine bowling effort to complete a resounding win for the Chennai side. Hyderabad were no match for the defending champions today. Jadeja was the star performer with the ball, ending with stunning figures of 5/16.

17.1 D Bollinger to A Sharma, OUT! Chennai win by 74 runs! Big away win for the side. Full delivery, on off, Sharma lofts it in the air towards mid off and Morkel runs back slightly to take the catch. The players shake hands and leave the field. 119/10

17.6 D Steyn to D Bravo, Gets up on his toes to play that one in front of point. One run added to the total. 153/6

17.2 D Steyn to R Jadeja, OUT! Hit-wicket! An unfortunate end to an entertaining knock. He gets a full length delivery on middle and leg line and tries to flick it to the leg side. He does so but in the process slips a bit and back kicks the stumps. Chennai 6 down for 147! Albie Morkel will be the next man in! 147/6

17.1 D Steyn to R Jadeja, Dishes out a slower delivery, full in length around off, Jadeja tries to go inside out but ends up spooning it in the air over cover-point. The batsmen have picked up a couple of runs. 147/5

Hyderabad - Daniel Harris, Shikhar Dhawan, Parthiv Patel, Bharat Chipli, Cameron White, Daniel Christian, Dwaraka Ravi Teja, Ankit Sharma, Dale Steyn, Manpreet Gony, TP Sudhindra.

Chennai - Faf du Plessis, Murali Vijay, Suresh Raina, Dwayne Bravo, Albie Morkel, S Badrinath, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shadab Jakati, Doug Bollinger.

Toss - Cameron White flips the coin, MS Dhoni calls "Heads" and it's "Tails". HYDERABAD WILL FIELD!! Chennai are opting for the same playing XI while White, Steyn, Harris and Christian are the overseas players for the home side.

Warm welcome to all our viewers for the second of the double-header today involving Chennai and Hyderabad at the ACA-VDCA Stadium, Visakhapatnam. The hosts under the captaincy of Cameron White are all set to begin their campaign in the fifth edition of Indian T20 League and they would hope to start it with a win.
