'It's dry out here, throat got dry': Dhoni

MS Dhoni, unbeaten on 47 off 36 balls, speaks after the match: "Not able to middle a lot of deliveries, tried to hit the balls too hard. (asked about whether he was feeling fatigue towards the end of the chase) Quite all right, it's dry out here, throat gets dry." He again stresses on the extras given away in their bowling innings and the catches dropped.

Curran can only get a single. That's it. It's out of CSK's hands now. Dhoni also can only get a single. Warner seen heaving a sigh of relief at long on. Curran ends the over and the match with a six, but it's not good enough. SRH have won by 7 runs. What a match!

Keeps strike for the last over. Dhoni on 39 off 32.

All in danger of falling apart for Warner's men now. Another quickly run two. Dhoni takes a moment to regain his breath, he's been batting for over an hour now.

Bhuvi unable to complete 19th over

Jadeja and Curran's charge has kept this chase alive. Dhoni has not hit any sixes so far but we all know what he can do. Bhuvi bowls the 19th. How much will either side like to leave for the last over? Bhuvi nails an yorker first ball - single. Dhoni on strike. Bhuvi pulls up in his bowling run-up. He tries again. Again, pulls up. Bhuvi cannot complete the over! He is walking gingerly off! Looks like a muscle strain of some sort. Who do SRH go to? CSK need 43 off 11 balls.

CSK 44/4 after 10

CSK win 63 percent of the time when Dhoni bats at 5. Will need a special effort today. Jadeja is in at 6. Dhoni and Jadeja batting with Williamson fielding nearby.

Faf run out for 22 - CSK 36/3 after 6

Faf shimmies down the track and cracks Natarajan for a four back over his head. Action replay of that in the next ball. Faf is carrying on in fine form, but can someone else from the CSK order support him? Drama off the last ball in the Powerplay. Faf du Plessis could be run out. He is short of his crease, replays confirm, but there is a doubt whethere Bairstow broke the stumps with his gloves or with the ball. OUT is the decision. Faf is gone for 22. CSK lose their in-form batsman. 

21:59 (IST)02 Oct 2020
