Dwayne Bravo consistently bowled in the blockhole in a tense finish as Chennai Super Kings prevailed over a weakened SunRisers Hyderabad by four runs in an Indian Premier League (IPL) match to consolidate their position at the top of the points table on Sunday. Winning the toss, Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson opted to field. CSK started slow but were powered to 182/3, courtesy Ambati Rayudu's smashing knock of 79 off only 37 balls and Suresh Raina's brisk 43-ball 54. The visiting team then stopped the hosts at 178 for six, with medium pacer Deepak Chahar doing the bulk of the damage. Needing 33 runs in the last two overs, Yusuf Pathan and Rashid Khan blasted a six each off Shardul Thakur in the penultimate over. Given the responsibility of bowling the final over with SRH requiring 19 runs, the composed Dwayne Bravo was hit for six and a four by Rashid to bring the equation to six off one. Bravo managed to get it on the blockhole and Rashid could only manage a single. (Scorecard)

Earlier, Ambati Rayudu (79) blizzard coupled with a calculated innings by Suresh Raina (54) powered Chennai Super Kings to a competitive 182/3 in 20 overs against SunRisers Hyderabad. Winning the toss, Kane Williamson opted to field and this decision bore fruit as the visitors struggled to score runs freely in the first 10 overs as they lost both their openers early and cheaply. SRH bowling department was at their very best as Chennai registered the lowest powerplay total of the IPL 2018 season. However, Raina and Rayudu steadied the innings and slowly changed the complexion of the match with boundaries. Soon after scoring his fifty, Rayudu changed his gear and smashed the ball all around the park thus upping the ante and increasing the run-rate as well. However, a mix-up in the middle forced Rayudu to return back and leave his innings incomplete.

MS Dhoni, the new batsman in, did not take any time to settle and started scoring boundaries from the word go. Dhoni's 12-ball 25 helped Chennai to post a solid total on board after his team were off to a slow start. For SunRisers Hyderabad, Bhuvneshwar ended the match with figures of 1/22. Apart from him Rashid Khan chipped in with a wicket but was costly.

Man of the Match has been given to Ambati Rayudu for his masterclass knock of 79 in just 37 balls that had 9 boundaries and 4 maximums studded in it. He did a fabulous job to resurrect the innings and power his side to a fighting total. That's all from this game but you don't go anywhere. Suit up and tuck in to catch all the action from the second game where the two Mumbai lads are up against each other. See you on the other side. Cheers!

That wasn't meant to be. Rashid Khan, towards the end, walked in and hit a couple of lusty blows to evoke some life back in the contest and become the over but was denied by Bravo. Overall, a good show from Dhoni's men and they would be happy to come out on top by winning back-to-back games.

The required rate was climbing and the Chennai spinners were exerting pressure but it was Kane Williamson who held one end up and unleashed at the right time. He got an able partner in Yusuf Pathan as together they hammered 79 off 45 balls for the 5th wicket to send the shiver down the spines of the opposition. However, both departed towards the end and it seemed like Chennai would easily seal the deal.

What a win for Chennai! It did get close towards the end, in fact very close but Dwayne Bravo stepped up and got his side over the line. The chase began in a very sad manner for the hosts. They lost three wickets inside the Powerplay, courtesy a classical spell from Deepak Chahar who was absolutely on song to dent Hyderabad up front. After that, we saw a surge. Kane Williamson and Shakib Al Hasan shored things up by stitching a 49-run stand but the latter departed, to put his side in further trouble.

Dwayne Bravo to Rashid Khan

No, he can't! Dwayne Bravo has done it for his side. Perfect yorker, into the blockhole, all Rashid can do is dig it out towards long on and get one. Not enough. CHENNAI WIN BY FOUR RUNS!

6 needed to win this game. Can Rashid Khan become a hero? Here we go...

Dwayne Bravo to Rashid Khan

FOUR! Yes it has come! It's off the edge but who cares? Certainly not the men from Hyderabad. On a length and outside off, Rashid Khan hits it hard but gets a thick edge which flies past the man at short third man for a boundary.

Dwayne Bravo to Rashid Khan

SIX! Rashid Khan has evoked life back! What a hit under pressure! This isn't over, not over, for sure! Length delivery on middle, Khan swings it powerfully over square leg and it goes sailing over the fence. 10 needed from 2. Another boundary coming?
