IPL 2020, SRH vs CSK Highlights: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) beat Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 20 runs. After some late carnage from Ravindra Jadeja CSK reached 167/6 after 20 overs, CSK’s bowling attack strangled the chase as SRH ended with 147/8 in their 20 overs.

In a shock move, CSK kicked-off things in Dubai with a new opening pair in the form of Sam Curran and Faf du Plessis. While Curran smashed some boundaries in his 21-ball stay at the crease, Du Plessis was sent packing on a golden duck. However, after the openers were removed inside the powerplay over by Sandeep Sharma, Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu did a brilliant rescue operation for CSK. The pair added 81 runs for the third wicket, before Rayudu was dismissed by Khaleel Ahmed on 41 (34). Jadeja remained unbeaten on 25 (10). SRH were rocked early by Sam Curran (1/18). Kane Williamson (57) held the chase together even as CSK kept picking wickets. With the required run rate climbing, SRH capitulated under pressure and CSK saw the win through.

IPL 2020, SRH vs CSK Highlights:

23:18 (IST)13 Oct 2020
CSK win by 20 runs

Bravo seals the deal with some more pin-point yorkers. 1 run in the last over. CSK win by 20 runs.

23:14 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Nadeem out

Bravo bowls the last over. Two dot balls. Nadeem then skies it. Bravo comes under it. Caught and bowled. That's it mathematically then too. SRH need 22 off 3 balls

23:11 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Rashid Khan manages to get dismissed in two ways in one ball - SRH need 22 in last over

Shardul Thakur bowls the 19th, leaving Curran for the last over possibly. Rashid on strike. A couple off the first ball. Then a wide. This counter-attack from Numbers 7 and 8 has put some pressure on the bowlers. Another wide? No. Paul Reiffel seems to be signalling a wide, but then decides not to. Dhoni seems to have done what only he can! Talks the umpire into not stretching his arms. An interesting shot from Rashid for one. He goes for the big shot off the last ball and is caught. No! He is hit wicket, in fact. Rashid Khan has been dismissed in two ways off the same ball! He is out for 14. SRH 146/7 after 19

23:04 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Rashid, Shahbaz explode from ball one

Shahbaz Nadeem and Rashid Khan, both without having faced any balls, need to go smash from ball one. Rashid swings and gets a six to long on. A reverse sweeep with the turn for four. Is Rashid Khan the ace up SRH's sleeve after all? Shahbaz Nadeem swings too off his first ball. Four in the covers. 19 runs in the over! SRH 141/6 after 18

23:00 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Williamson out for 57

Rashid Khan comes in at 7. SRH need 46 in 3 overs. Karn Sharma bowls the 18th. Williamson pulls into the gaps. Four. Swings again. Shardul Thakur comes round from long on. Williamson is out for 57 off 39. CSK get the big man. SRH 126/6 after 17.2

22:57 (IST)13 Oct 2020
50 for Williamson

Bravo bowls the first of the last 4. Vijay Shankar gets the final part of the chase off with a bang. Down on his knees and a six smashed over long on. An interesting field set for CSK - with no apparent logic, but with the logic in madness that is always on show when Dhoni is at the helm. Chawla is at covers. Williamson somehow picks him out with a crunched shot. Single. Shankar swings and picks out Jadeja - again! - at third man. OUT! Fifth wicket. Williamson finds the gap at cow corner as Bravo bowls a full toss. 50 for Williamson. SRH 122/5 after 17

22:49 (IST)13 Oct 2020
SRH need 59 in 4 overs

Vijay Shankar comes in at 6. Piyush Chawla into the attack in the 16th, the 7th bowler CSK use. 8 runs from his over. SRH need 59 in the last 4. Williamson, on 47, is still out there, but it's getting close to crunch time now. A Time Out. The final throw of the dice to come up next.

22:42 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Garg falls - Sunrisers Hyderabad need 69 runs in 32 balls

Karn Sharma tempts Garg with extra width on the off side. Garg swings at one on the leg side as Karn goes straighht for once and he is caught in the deep. Jadeja the catcher. SRH 99/4 after 14.4

22:38 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Pitch slows down to CSK's liking

A lot of turn off the surface on offer. With the pitch slowing down, CSK will be feeling some of the pangs of Chepauk-homesickness ebb away. Priyam Garg lets a few dot balls go against Karn Sharma. Pressure builds. 6 runs off the 13th. Bravo into the attack in the 14th, the 6th bowler CSK use. Garg gets going now. Places a cut in the gap for his first boundary. Williamson gets four with a fine nick on the leg side which goes just past Dhoni's gloves. SRH 93/3 after 14

22:29 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Williamson takes lead

Priyam Garg is the new man in. SRH will need 108 runs in the last 10 overs. Time for more spin after Jadeja's success. Karn Sharma from the other end. 4 runs from the over. The pressure builds on SRH as CSK hurry through the middle overs. Williamson hits a cracking shot for four over the infield. The first boundary in 7 overs. Ends the over with four more. Change of intent from KW and SRH. SRH 76/3 after 12

22:21 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Bairstow out for 23

Shardul Thakur into the attack in the 9th. Still singles. 5 off the over. Jadeja continues in the 10th. And breaks the partnership. Bairstow is bowled. He goes for 23. Is stunned as the ball goes through him and clatters his stumps. SRH 59/3 after 9.5

22:10 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Williamson, Bairstow build partnership

Chahar bowls out his full quota. 6 runs from his 4th over. CSK are ahead on the par score after 7 overs. Time for Jadeja in the 8th over as CSK go to spin for the first time. KW and Bairstow get the scoreboard moving with singles, and doubles whenever the opportunity affords. SRH 52/2 after 8

22:02 (IST)13 Oct 2020
SRH 40/2 after 6

Williamson is in at 4 to join Bairstow. A four cracked away past cover point to get him started. Chahar continues in the 5th. Curran, pumping in tonight, continues in the 6th too. Gets an lbw appeal against Williamson too. KW improvises to get a four at third man. Both Bairstow and KW looking fluent so far but CSK will be happy with the 2 wickets in the Curran over. SRH 40/2 after 6

21:52 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Pandey run out

Manish Pandey cracks a four through the covers to start off. But then he is run out! Bravo with the piece of work in the field that sees an early demise for Manish. He is run out for 4. SRH 27/2 after 4

21:49 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Warner out

Bairstow crunches a four - this time on the other side of the wicket - as Chahar starts the 3rd over. 11 runs come in the over. Then Sam Curran gets the breakthrough in the 4th. An inside edge off Warner's bat goes on to his pads and then loops up in the air. Curran is there to collect the easy return catch. Warner goes for 9. SRH 23/1 after 3.3

21:39 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Bairstow gets SRH started

4 runs from Chahar's over. Sam Curran bowls the 2nd over and starts off with some dot balls. Bairstow crunches a drive through the covers for four - the first boundary of the chase. SRH 10/0 after 2

21:29 (IST)13 Oct 2020
SRH begin chase of 168

The chase is set to begin. Can CSK defend 167? Warner and Bairstow come out in orange - no opening change for them like the Curran move from CSK. If these two get going, this target could be overhauled in no time. Deepak Chahar will bowl the first over. Warner faces. And there's an edge flying off his bat off the first ball. Lands just short of the point fielder.

21:16 (IST)13 Oct 2020
CSK reach 167/6 after 20 overs

Khaleel Ahmed starts off the final over with a wicket, but some late carnage from Jadeja see him finish the over with 15 runs. He remains unbeaten on 25 from 10 balls as CSK reach 167/6 after 20 overs. 

SRH need 168 to win. 

21:08 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Natarajan gets rid of MS Dhoni!

Natarajan gets rid of MS Dhoni but the CSK skipper has done his job here. He departs after scoring 21 from 13 balls as CSK reach 152/5 after 19 overs. How much more will CSK add in the final six deliveries? 

21:04 (IST)13 Oct 2020
Sandeep SUPERMAN Sharma!

What was that from Sandeep Sharma. Comes and bowls a brilliant delivery, as MS Dhoni fails to control it and plays it in the air, giving the bowler a chance of completing a caught & bowled. The bowler in his run-up dives to his left, but fails to complete the catch. Had he collected the ball, it would have been the best catch of the season so far. CSK: 138/4 (18 overs)
