Sunrisers Hyderabad

7.30pm Super Kings have completed the double over Sunrisers. What should've been a challenging chase has been turned into a cakewalk. There was a threat of rain early in CSK's chase, but that stayed away to give way to a run fest as Watson and Rayudu put on a century stand to set this up. Raina missed out, but that hardly mattered. This will be a big wake up call for SRH heading into the playoffs, but surely they won't be fretting yet. The big concern for them though is the form of their middle order. For a while, they've been dependent on Williamson. Dhawan's struck form in the last two games. Now, they'll need the likes of Pandey to fire and Yusuf fit.

18.6B Kumar to MS Dhoni, 1 run, turns this gently into the leg side, that's that. CSK cruise home in style with an over to spare. They're all but into the playoffs. .

That's the third century SRH have conceded this season. He joins a select CSK centurions' club consisting of Murali Vijay, Michael Hussey, Suresh Raina, Brendon McCullum, Shane Watson.

18.5B Kumar to AT Rayudu, 1 run, walks across the stumps and works this length ball to square leg. That's Rayudu's century, what a knock! Points to someone in the coaching staff, does a circle around his head and then walks up to Dhoni to give him a hug. Lovely knock. I haven't seen Rayudu smile like this ever before. I've only seen him angry.
18.4B Kumar to MS Dhoni, 1 run, squeezed down to third man to bring Rayudu on strike.
18.3B Kumar to MS Dhoni, BOUNDARY, 4 runs, slams this pull to deep square leg. Neither deep midwicket nor fine leg moved. Ferocious strike.
18.2B Kumar to AT Rayudu, 1 run, lands short of third man! Rayudu went over mid-off, ended up slicing it towards third man..
18.1B Kumar to AT Rayudu, No run, banged in short, Rayudu leaves. Umpire signals one bouncer for the over. He shaped to pull but decided to let go late.

Revant: "I seriously think I am an optimist! And with 0 wickets down and 100 on board, u think it will be quite a yeah to defend this but I still support SRH to go all the way. And it's so wonderful to see them play beautifully for the second time (first in 2016) . I really hope these to teams play in the final!"

Kapil: "This looks over guys. SRH haven't found CSK's number yet. Hope they do before play offs. Don't see SRH defending it"

Vishal: "Kaul to Rayudu, SIX runs, short and outside off, Rayudu clears his front leg and skies a pull. Hales moves in as opposed to hanging at the edge of the boundary. Rayudu clears Hales and lifts the ball into CSK's dug out-->this was in to SRH dugout" --- Good spot, have fixed it
