What went right: Sunrisers Hyderabad brilliantly defended a modest 150 against Kings XI Punjab. The team management’s decision to play Trent Boult ahead of Dale Steyn stood vindicated. The Kiwi fast bowler was top-class, bowling with pace and swing upfront and then landing his yorkers perfectly at the death. He returned with 3/19 in his four overs and the Man of the Match award. Ashish Reddy’s eight-ball 22 not out was equally important. It gave his bowlers something to bowl at.

Chennai Super Kings (lost to KKR)

What’s going wrong: Chennai should be concerned about their successive middle-order collapses. They threw away good starts in their back-to-back fixtures against Kolkata Knight Riders. MS Dhoni is not quite in his element with the bat. He looked a little clueless when Piyush Chawla breached his defence in the last game. A marauder has become a grafter. Maybe it’s time for the Chennai captain to throw caution to the wind and take his team on a helicopter ride.

Sunrisers Hyderabad’s coach Tom Moody said his middle-order batsmen will have to capitalise on the early starts given by David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan to turn their fortunes in the ongoing IPL cricket tournament.
