4.6 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Rayudu doesn't want to waste any time! Full and outside off, he drills it over mid off and opens his account with a boundary. End of another successful over from Sandeep. 3-0-10-2 so far from him, excellent figures.
4.5 overs (0 Run) Good length ball just outside off, pushed towards the cover region.
Ambati Rayudu will be the No. 4 batter for Chennai.
4.4 overs (0 Run) OUT! TIMBER! Sandeep strikes again! A beauty from Sandeep. Curran's party has been cut short. A length ball, this one is angled in to the left-hander. Curran looks to defend but plays it to the wrong line and misses. The ball though goes behind and the stumps behind is disturbed.
4.3 overs (1 Run) Fullish and on middle, Watson flicks it over mid-wicket for a run.
4.2 overs (0 Run) Around off on a good length, pushed back to the bowler.
4.1 overs (0 Run) Good length ball around off, Watson defends it.
3.6 overs (6 Runs) SIX! BOOM! Four to begin the over and six to end! Exactly what Chennai needed after a slow start. Khaleel returned back to bowling the shortish length. This one is outside off too. Curran launches it over the bowler's head for a biggie. This is a huge over for Chennai as they collect 22 runs off it.
3.5 overs (1 Run) On the pads of Watson, he looks to flick but mises to get hit on the pad. The ball rolls towards square leg and they take a leg bye.
3.4 overs (1 Run) Smartly tucks the next ball towards mid-wicket and gets to the other end. Also, Khaleel finally changed his pace on this ball and bowled it on a length.
3.3 overs (6 Runs) SIX! A biggie now! Khaleel continues to bowl short. This is around off and middle, Curran waits for it and then pumps it over the long on fence. 14 from the first 3 balls.
3.2 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Two-in-two now! Poor from Khaleel. A shortish ball on middle, it sits up nicely for Curran. He goes back and powers it over mid on for another boundary.
3.1 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! BOOM! Good start to the over. Shortish length and just around off, Curran slaps it to the left of the bowler powerfully and finds the fence.
2.6 overs (0 Run) Huge appeal but turned down! Sandeep runs in and bowls the inswinger against Watson. The Aussie has had his share of struggle against the inswingers. He tries to flick but gets struck on the pad. They appeal but not out says the umpire. Probably it was doing a little too much.
2.5 overs (1 Run) Just wide of the bowler. A length ball around off, Curran looks to drive but the ball taks the inner half and goes to the left of Sandeep uppishly. The pacer dives but he fails to catch. A single and Curran enters into the double digit.
2.4 overs (0 Run) Another dot! Curran is not able to get going here. A length ball around off, pushed towards the off side.
2.3 overs (0 Run) Driven nicely but straight to the fielder. Full and outside off, Curran drives it well but finds the cover fielder.

Shane Watson is the new batter in for Chennai.
2.1 overs (0 Run) OUT! CAUGHT! Du Plessis goes first ball! Terrific from Sandeep. Faf has been waiting to face the first ball from the last two overs. He wanted to feel the ball and hence he went after this wide one. Also, Sandeep managed to bring the ball back in to the right-hander. It is a bit short too. Faf has a poke away from his body. He ends up getting an outside edge to the keeper. Bairstow is safe as a house behind the wicket.
1.6 overs (2 Runs) Just clears mid on! A fuller one from Khaleel. It is on middle, Curran looks to slog but doesn't get all of it. Manages to clear the mid on fielder and gets a couple of runs.
1.5 overs (0 Run) Another dot! Just outside off on a good length, Curran pushes it towards point. Good over so far from Khaleel. A wide to begin and a boundary too but after that 4 dots so far. Can he finish it well?
1.4 overs (0 Run) Angled in from around off. It is on the shortish length a touch. Curran tucks it towards mid-wicket.
1.3 overs (0 Run) Good length ball around off, pushed towards covers.
1.2 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Width offered this time and Curran slams it. Short and wide outside off, Curran thumps it over point and finds the first boundary of the match.

Who will bowl from the other end? It will be Khaleel Ahmed.
0.6 over (1 Run) Single to end the first over! A quality one from Sandeep. The last ball is bit outside off on a good length. Curran forces it through cover-point for a run.

0.3 over (2 Runs) Curran and Chennai are up and running! Sandeep bowls this one on middle on a good length, Curran tucks it through mid-wicket. Doesn't go hard at the ball and that means it will not race away. Two taken.
0.2 over (0 Run) Another one around off on a good length, Curran pushes it towards point.
0.1 over (0 Run) Sandeep is on the money! A length ball just outside off, shapes a touch as Curran blocks it towards point.
Right! We are done and dusted with the pre-match formalities and it is time for the action! Both the umpires stride out to the middle and they are followed by Chennai's openers, Sam Curran and Faf du Plessis! A change in the openers for Chennai. David Warner has got his boys in the huddle near the ropes and sharing some advice with them before they can take their positions in the field. Sandeep Sharma will take the new ball for Hyderabad. Sam Curran to face. Here we go...
Hyderabad (Playing XI) - David Warner (C), Jonny Bairstow (WK), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar, Priyam Garg, Shahbaz Nadeem (IN PLACE OF ABHISHEK SHARMA), Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natarajan.
Chennai (Playing XI) - Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (WK/C), Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla (IN PLACE OF NARAYAN JAGADEESAN), Karn Sharma.
Hyderabad skipper, David Warner, tells that he would've batted as well but tells that they have got a good bowling lineup so he is not too disappointed. On their last game, Warner says that the easiest thing to do is forget that game and start afresh. Tells that he is enjoying the captaincy and says that he has got a lot of help around him in the form of Kane Williamson and Bairstow. Informs that Shahbaz Nadeem is playing this game in place of Abhishek Sharma.
The skipper of Chennai, MS Dhoni, starts off by saying that they wanted to bat first and they never got the oppurtunity but they will bat first now. Says that the thing with stats is that you can maneovur it the way you want to. Tells that it is a process and it is much quicker if the boys are ready for it and feels that there are always fresh challenges in every new game. Says that cricket is something that is close to life and it teaches you a lot of things. Adds that there is a single change as Piyush Chawla is back in the playing XI in place of Narayan Jagadeesan. Ends by saying that they thought about including Imran Tahir in this game, but the combinations did not work out in their favor.
TOSS - It is time for the flip of the coin! Both the skippers are out in the middle along with the match referee. Up it goes and it lands in Dhoni's favor! They will BAT FIRST.
PITCH REPORT - Kevin Pietersen and Michael Slater are out in the middle for the pitch report. Slater starts off by saying that if you do not bowl the perfect yorker, the bowlers might be punished. KP adds that the bowlers have started picking up the wickets. Adds that if you miss your length, then you are going to get tonked. Slater and Pietersen end by saying that it looks like an even contest between ball and bat and that this is going to be another humdinger of a clash.
MS Dhoni-led Chennai have lost 5 games so far and are finding it difficult to get going! They won their first game, lost three, won again and now have lost two in a row. They need some sort of miracle to turn things around. Inconsistent performances with the bat, the ability to win crucial moments with the ball and poor efforts in the field haven't helped them so far. One thing that will give them some confidence, is the fact that they have had an upper hand over the Orange army in the history of the tournament.
Let's talk about Hyderabad first. With one more win than Chennai, Hyderabad is sitting on no. 5 in the points spreadsheet. They were pretty close to a convincing victory over Rajasthan in their last game but Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag's heroics meant that two points were taken away from them. They haven't been able to win matches consistently and would be eager to change that.
Hello and welcome to our coverage of yet another game in the Indian T20 League. We are done with the first half of the tournament! Now, we move to the second! The race on the points table is still an interesting and lively one. The second half is being inaugurated by two southern sides, Hyderabad and Chennai.
