IPL 2019, SRH vs CSK Highlights: Sunrisers Hyderabad beat Chennai Super Kings at home on Wednesday. Courtesy of this win SRH ended their three-match losing streak and moved fifth on the points table.
CSK, on the other hand, were without regular skipper MS Dhoni, and the defeat ended their four-match winning streak which looked unbeatable as ever.

Chennai Super Kings don’t necessarily need him to go ballistic though. With seven wins, the defending champions are sitting on top of the IPL table with a four-point and are looking unbeatable this season.
