What a game, ladies and gents! Chennai make an inspirational comeback from the jaws of defeat and plunge themselves into their 7th Indian T20 League final. Hyderabad narrowly missed out tonight, but they aren't out of just yet. They still have an opportunity to make it to the final, in Qualifier 2, but will have to wait to see who emerges victorious in the Eliminator. Kolkata and Rajasthan will face off in it on 23rd May, at 1900 local (1330 GMT). You don't want to miss it. See you folks then!
Faf du Plessis gets the Man of the Match award! Says that it's nice to make a contribution tonight. Adds that last night he was reflecting on the game that he played in Mumbai and took confidence from that. Says that when you are out there batting, you focus on batting till the end and hope something special happens. Mentions about Shardul Thakur who came in and hit a few boundaries. Feels the wicket was not easy to bat on and credits Hyderabad for bowling really well. Has a word of praise for Rashid Khan and admits that he was very tough to play as he bowls very quickly. Is happy to cross the line.
MS Dhoni is smiling and says that when you are on top it gives you the liberty to lose and even if they would have lost, they would have got the second chance. Adds that they bowled really well and there was something in it for the bowlers which even Bhuvneshwar got and was nicely backed by Rashid Khan. Admits that they kept losing wickets and that's why they had to push themselves towards the end. Feels it all happens in the knockout stages and wants his team to learn from this experience and keep on improving constantly. On death bowling, Dhoni replies he has the best combination and these are the resources he has. Agrees that they will get hit at some point of time, it may hurt but these are the bowlers who need to step up one final time. (On Faf du Plessis' knock) Dhoni replies that's where the experience counts. Quotes 'you need to train the mind more than the body' and you can come to use when handed the opportunity. Adds that Faf batted really well and hopes that he continues in the final also. Proudly says that they are a good team and it reflects the dressing room atmosphere that they create and thanks the support staff also.
Kane Williamson is disappointed and says that the trip to Kolkata will be interesting. Adds that they were short by a few runs. Praises his bowlers and feels that the game swung in their way but then is quick to admit that they weren't at their best towards the end. Feels that most times they would have defended that total but credits the lower order of Chennai. Hopes that they will learn from this game and move to the next match. Lauds the knock of Faf du Plessis and reckons it's going to be hard work for them in Kolkata.
Hyderabad were maybe 15-20 runs short. Though, despite that, they were exceptional with the ball tonight. Started off well, restricted Chennai to 62/6 and were right on top, but such is this format where the margin for error is less. The Brathwaite over stole the momentum from them. Siddarth Kaul too got taken for runs in the next over, thereby seeing them miss out. Rashid Khan in particular was the standout performer, conceding just 11 runs and picking up 2 wickets in his spell. Earlier in the evening, Brathwaite powered his team close to 140, but a clinical performance for the most part from the Chennai bowlers did just enough to help their batters gun the target down.
What a game. Chennai have defeated Hyderabad for the third time this season to storm into the finals. Ambati Rayudu did one over them twice, and now, it's Faf du Plessis who becomes the star of the show. Talk about the perfect timing to find some form. Chennai lost their way early chasing 140, and were staring down the barrel of a defeat. Things almost slipped out of their hands till that Carlos Brathwaite over in the 18th, where 23 runs were scored from it by Faf. That completely changed the tide and along with Shardul Thakur in the end, the Protea got his side over the line with a well-deserved fifty.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Faf du Plessis
SIX! Faf du Plessis has finished the game in one blow! Kumar relies on his slower knuckle delivery first up, drops it on a full length around off but Faf picks it up and lofts it nonchalantly over the bowler's head for a maximum. The South African raises his hands in triumph as his teammates come running from the dugout. Emotions pouring out in the middle as the players in yellow are jumping and hugging each other. What a win! What a game! Chennai win by 2 wickets and are in the final!
6 needed off 6 balls. Bhuvneshwar Kumar to bowl. Faf du Plessis will be on strike.

Siddarth Kaul To Shardul Thakur
FOUR! Shardul Thakur, the Mumbai lad, is doing it! Kaul delivers it full and on middle, Shardul smashes it straight down the ground and the long on fielder has no chance of cutting it off. He is playing a gem. Remember, he was taken for 20 runs in his last over while bowling and this is the best possible way to pay back.

Siddarth Kaul To Shardul Thakur
Very full and around off, Thakur drills it down to long off and rushes back for the second run. The throw comes to the bowler who fails to collect it as du Plessis whizzes past the crease. Great running.

Siddarth Kaul To Shardul Thakur
FOUR! Another streaky boundary, the crowd here in Mumbai is loving it. The famous Chinese cut. Unintentional, of course. On a good length around middle, 134.2 kph, Thakur tries playing it firmly down the ground but it takes the inside half of the bat and this time speeds past the left side of the keeper. A boundary at fine leg.

Siddarth Kaul To Shardul Thakur
FOUR! EDGY! But Chennai won't mind how they come as long as they come. A low full toss outside off, Thakur tries to keep it out but ends up edging it past the diving keeper for a boundary at third man.

Carlos Brathwaite To Faf du Plessis OUT!
OUT! Harbhajan is short! The delivery is full and outside off, once again du Plessis drills it to deep extra cover and this time there is a fielder positioned there. Rashid Khan it is and he dives to make the stop. Then, he stands up to fire a flat throw to the bowler who takes the bails off. They appeal and the umpire goes upstairs. The replays find Harbhajan Singh short of the crease. Also, Rashid Khan seems to have hurt himself and is receiving some medical attention near the boundary line.
Appeal for a run out! Harbhajan Singh seems to be in danger here while attempting the second run.

Carlos Brathwaite To Faf du Plessis
FOUR! Chennai are up and running! The change of pace has not worked here. It's on the shorter side and du Plessis pulls it off the inner half of the bat. It beats short fine leg to his left and speeds away to the fence.
17.3
6
Carlos Brathwaite To Faf du Plessis
SIX! Fifty for Faf, his 9th in the League. Talk about the timing of this innings. His team is down and almost out but the Protea is refusing to give up. Fetches a length ball from the middle and leg stump line and deposits it into the mid-wicket stands.

Rashid Khan To Faf du Plessis
Not out, it's missing the leg stump! Rashid's well-disguised googly ain't picked by du Plessis. He leans forward to defend but is beaten to get rapped on the pads. The appeal is upheld but Faf quickly takes the DRS. The replays confirm what I said earlier. Turning too much and missing the leg pole. Hyderabad trying to build relentless pressure now.
Review taken. It's for an lbw decision against Faf du Plessis. The Protea has taken it upstairs, thinking it's going down leg. Let's see now...
Harbhajan Singh will be the next batsman in. He didn't get to bowl a single ball in the first innings, can he make an impact with the bat?

Sandeep Sharma To Deepak Chahar OUT!
OUT! It's a clean catch! Sandeep arrows in a fuller length ball, on middle, Chahar swings his bat across the line, although with limited followthrough of the bat, you can call it half-helicopter and as a result, the ball also flies only half the distance. It loops towards long on where Brathwaite comes running in forward and across to take a low catch. However, he is not too sure whether he has taken it cleanly or not and the umpires go upstairs. The soft signal is out. The replays now roll in and they show that Brathwaite has his fingers under the ball. Chahar has to continue walking off the park. A handy partnership is broken and Hyderabad will be delighted.
Deepak Chahar has holed out in the deep to Carlos Brathwaite. Though, the umpire isn't sure if the catch is taken cleanly or not. It's taken upstairs. The soft signal is out.

Sandeep Sharma To Deepak Chahar
SIX! Chahar has pulled this one out of screws. Anticipates the shortish ball and goes through with the swing of his bat. Not quite from the middle of the bat but still it has enough to fly over the fence. The umpire signals a biggie after getting the confirmation from upstairs.
Strategic break. 60 needed off 36 balls. This is still doable if Faf du Plessis gets some support from the other end. Hyderabad cannot afford to take the foot off the pedal. It's a pretty notorious format and the moment you relax, unexpected things happen.

Pandey runs across to his left from deep mid-wicket, puts in a dive to stop it but the ball still manages to get deflected towards the rope. The long off fielder in the meantime overran there and had no chance of cutting it off either.

OUT! Rashid Khan strikes again! What a bowler! The Afghan jalebi consumes the West Indian entertainer! A leg spinner, landing short outside off and turning away, Bravo spots the chance to slap it over the off side but doesn't account for the spin. He swings his bat only to find the ball taking the outside half of it. Dhawan makes no mistake at first slip and Chennai slip further.

OUT! Hello. Hello! Here we go! MS Dhoni is gone. Absolute jaffa from Rashid Khan. Great decision from Kane Williamson to bring on his prime bowler.

Take a bow, Manish Pandey. All these runs saved could be vital in the end. Du Plessis slaps this to the right of point, where Pandey runs and dives at full stretch to stop it.

Siddarth Kaul To Ambati Rayudu OUT!
OUT! Gozunder! Siddarth Kaul on a hat-trick. What an unreal delivery to dismiss the prolific Ambati Rayudu. Couldn't do a single thing about that. It's a terrific yorker, swings away late and does enough to beat the outside edge of the bat. The ball crashes into the furniture and Hyderabad are right in this game now.
Ambati Rayudu walks into the middle next.

Siddarth Kaul To Suresh Raina OUT!
OUT! Raina departs! His nice little cameo comes to an end. Hyderabad needed this. Length ball on leg, Raina shuffles across a bit too much as he looks to flick. Misses it altogether and the stumps are rattled. Kaul gets the breakthrough, the dangerous southpaw is out of here.

Raina could have been gone there. Bit lazy from him. Yorker around leg, Raina backs away and steers it to backward point. Pandey has a shy at the striker's end seeing Suresh being a bit sloppy to get back in, but misses. Had he hit, Raina was gone.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Shane Watson OUT!
OUT! Bhuvi finds the edge and it's given! Big blow to Chennai as they lose Watson for a duck! What a delivery, absolute peach! Kumar lands it on a length around that off stump channel, Watson with minimal feet movement has a tame poke at it. The ball moves away ever so slightly, takes the outer half and Goswami behind the stumps makes no mistake. Perfect start for Hyderabad in the chase.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Shane Watson
Play and a miss first up! Fuller delivery, swinging away a bit, Watson leans ahead to defend it with a straight bat but the ball moves away and whizzes past the outside edge of his bat.
We are back for the chase. Chennai have a below par target to chase down, as Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis stride out to the middle. Bhuvneshwar Kumar will open with the ball. His spell in the Powerplay will be key. A slip in place for him...
