10.06pm
Chahar bowled out

10.02pm
End of Powerplay

Curran, pumping in tonight, continues in the 6th too. Gets an lbw appeal against Williamson too. He improvises to get a four at third man. Both Bairstow and Williamson looking fluent so far but CSK will be happy with the 2 wickets in the Curran over. CSK-40/2 after 6 overs

9.56pm

Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson walks out at No 4 as Chahar continues from his end. Williamson gets off the mark with a boundary off the first ball that he faces.

9.53pm
Eventful over from Curran

Curran gets the early breakthrough that Chennai were hoping to snare inside the powerplay, as Warner gets an unlucky inside edge. Pandey joins Bairstow next but is run out off the next as he decides to challenge himself against Bravo’s rocket arm while scampering across for a quick single. SRH-27/2 after 4 overs

9.52pm
Magic stuff from Bravo; Pandey run out for 4

Outstanding stuff by Bravo at midwicket to run Pandey out at the non-striker’s end as the SRH No 3 was looking to collect a quick single at the end of the fourth over! Pandey’s run out by a fair distance here! FOW-27/2

9.48pm
Big blow for SRH; Warner gone cheaply

Inside edge, on to the pad, in the air and Sam Curran runs and takes it. What a bizarre but good dismissal. Warner is fuming. FOW- 23/1

9.44pm

Bairstow collects another boundary for himself a couple of balls after his first, leaning forward and heaving the ball towards deep midwicket. Warner miscues a pull, with the ball landing safely at deep midwicket to allow the SRH skipper three runs as Chahar leaks 11 off his second. CSK-21/0 after 3 overs; need more 147 from 17 balls

9.37pm

After opening the batting earlier, now Curran shares the new ball with Chahar. Big shout for lbw off the second delivery against Warner, one that’s turned down by the umpire.

9.34pm
Good start from CSK

9.09pm

9.07pm
150 up for CSK

Natarajan into the penultimate over of the innings. Jadeja opening the face of the bat and runs it to third man for a four. Dhoni gets one in the slot, hammers it for a six before handing a simple catch to the fielder at cover. CSK-152/5 after 19 overs

9.06pm
Dhoni falls; CSK lose half their side

MS Dhoni hits it straight to Kane Williamson trying to go covers on a low full toss, but mistimed it. FOW-152/5

9.01pm

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. He fails to complete the catch but had he collected the ball, it would have been the best catch of the season so far. CSK-138/4 after 18 overs

9pm
Beautiful timing from Jadeja

Delicate touch. Jadeja just using the pace of the ball and finding the gap between third man and backward point.

8.54pm
Back to back boundaries from Dhoni

Big blow for CSK

This time it’s Watson, and it’s the full toss that has got him. Straight into the hands of the long on fielder. Two new batsmen at the crease now. FOW-120/4

8.44pm

Khaleel Ahmed has got the big wicket. Full toss, and Rayudu tried to smash it to long-off, but David Warner was there to take the catch. FOW-116/3

8.41pm

It’s a rare sight to see Rashid Khan struggling but the pair of Watson and Rayudu are making him. Watson starts off the over with a maximum straight over Rashid’s head and Rayudu wraps it off with another maximum towards the deep mid-wicket region. CSK-116/2 after 15 overs

8.37pm
100 comes up for CSK

Natarajan is the pacer in action. Rayudu mistimes off the first ball, he tried to go over covers, but was lucky as the ball landed in no man’s land. Again, dances down the track but the diving fielder in the cover region saves a certain boundary. Umpires signal for the strategic timeout taken. CSK-102/2 after 14 overs

8.34pm
Here’s what the experts feel of CSK’s performance so far!

8.31pm

Rashid returns and Watson picks his googly off the first one and smacks it over mid-wicket for a huge six. The spinner comes back beautifully and concedes just two runs off the remaining deliveries. Eight runs off the over. CSK-92/2 after 13 overs

8.30pm
Massive from Warner

Watson belts it away towards deep mid-wicket for a huge six. That will release some pressure.

8.27pm

8.23pm
Rashid weaves web

Rashid Khan has woven shackles around CSK batters at the moment. Shane Watson is trying hard to hit big shots, but is unable to get going. Rashid Khan appearing to have hurt his fingers while attempting a catch. CSK-74/2 after 11 overs

8.19pm
We reach the halfway mark!

Tight bowling from SRH. Nadeem into the 10th over of the innings. But now with Ambati Rayudu & Shane Watson settled now, how much will CSK get in the final 10 overs? CSK-69/2 after 10 overs

8.14pm
Strategic Timeout taken

Rashid Khan, comes into the attack. Rayudu with nothing but respect for Rashid as he defends off the first two balls. Then gets off the mark. Watson returns the favour off the fourth. Just three runs off the over, excellent work from the Afghan.

CSK-64/2 after 9 overs

8.10pm

Nadeem back for his second. Bairstow drops Rayudu off the first, but it was a tough one. Then, Watson plays a backfoot punch off the second and that fetches him a boundary. Nine runs off the over. CSK-61/2 after 8 overs

8.06pm

Curran falls for 31

Sandeep Sharma right on the money again. Through Curran’s defences. Perfect inswinger to the left-hander and it dislodges his stumps. Good knock from the England all-rounder; have handed CSK a fiery start as was expected out of him. FOW-35/2

7.50pm
Fireworks from Sam Curran

Sam Curran is looking good in the middle. Khaleel returns and gets smacked for two consecutive fours and then a six, all of Curran’s blade. He is currently batting on 31 from 20 balls and have hit 3 boundaries and two sixes so far. CSK-34/1 after 4 overs

7.45pm

Sandeep into his second. Gets nice shape on the first delivery and the ball takes an outside edge off du Plessis’ bat. And the big fish is back in the hut. Watson is the new man in. CSK-12/1 after 3 overs

7.42pm
Early trouble for CSK!

Sandeep Sharma bowls it outside off stump, just a tad bit short, and Faf gets a soft nick on the ball, forced him to play, easy catch for Bairstow behind stumps. FOW-10/1

7.39pm

Khaleel Ahmed comes into the attack. Starts off with a wide, way outside off against Curran, and then a dot. Gives width to Curran off the second and the batsman slashes it towards point for a boundary. Seven runs off the over. CSK-10/0 after 2 overs

7.36pm
Curran with the first boundary of the night

Short and wide from Khaleel Ahmed to Sam Curran, and it has absolutely been thrashed towards midwicket for a boundary.

7.33pm
Good start from SRH

Strong first over from Sharma to start off on a positive note. CSK experiments with their opening combination as Sam Curran walks out with Watson. Yet to be seen if it works! CSK-3/0 after 1 over.

7.30pm
We are underway!

Here we go! Curran and Faf walks out to bat for CSK; Sandeep Sharma to start off proceedings.

7.09pm
CSK Playing XI

CSK captain MS Dhoni at the toss: “We’re batting first. Yes, for a change. Last few games we wanted to bat first, but never got the opportunity. The thing with stats is that you can get it any way you want to. It’s a process and it’s quicker if the guys buy into it, and follow the process. As I said, each game will have new problems. Today it will be about how we counter the shorter boundary one on side. Cricket is very close to life and it doesn’t always go the way you want. It teaches you what you want to follow as a process. 2010 ended on a happy note but we can’t just rely on that. One change – Chawla in for Jagadeesan. We thought about him (Tahir) but the combination isn’t letting us.”

7.06pm
SRH Playing XI

David Warner speaks at the toss: “Yes, that’s probably how everybody is going around these days. Interested to see how the wicket is going to play. There is a bigger boundary on one side and need to make the batters play there. The easiest thing to do is to forget about it (the previous loss). I’m really enjoying it (captaincy) and having Kane also helps. Really enjoying the group that we have. One change – Nadeem in for Abhishek Sharma.”

Toss Results

MS Dhoni wins toss and elects to bat first.

6.50pm
Big Dilemma for CSK- Where should MS Dhoni bat?

There are a lot of questions on where MS Dhoni should bat at. If he bats lower, then fans question that he could have made a difference coming earlier. If he comes early on, and consume balls, then fans question if he should have promoted other batsmen. What will be the CSK batting lineup tonight?

6.37pm
Can MS Dhoni do a repeat of 2010?

MS Dhoni’s CSK had lost five out of 7 games and then they went on to win the title. Can Dhoni do it again this year?

6.25pm
IPL 2020 Points table- How things stand so far

6:45 AM CSK coach Stephen Fleming has urged his team to show some intent in the crunch game against SRH

“The other point is we’ve chased every game and the wickets are getting slower. It’s not easy once you lose wickets… But I’d like to see a bit more intent.

CSK Currently in IPL 2020 Points Table

They are currently placed second from bottom in the IPL 2020 points table halfway into the tournament. Considered one of the most successful chasers in IPL history, CSK’s batting has looked rusty. Barring Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson, the entire batting department everyone has struggled to play an inspiring innings.

Why Chennai Super Kings is struggling so badly ?

The biggest headache for them is the middle-order woes. Without Suresh Raina and struggling Dhoni, CSK’s middle-order has looked fragile.

The likes of Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo too failed to come to the team’s rescue.

On the bowling front, however, it has been a different story. Deepak Chahar, Curran and Shardul Thakur have been impressive. Dwayne Bravo’s return has only made things better for them.

IPL 2020 CSK vs SRH – Likely Playing 11 for both the teams

CSK Probable XI:Shane Watson, N Jagadeesan, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Sam Curran, MS Dhoni c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Karn Sharma, Shadul Thakur

SRH Probable XI : David Warner (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Priyam Garg, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan. Sandeep Sharma, T Natarajan, Khaleel Ahmed

SRH, on the other hand, are a only a tad better-placed than CSK at the fifth spot with three wins from seven games.

CSK vs SRH in IPL 2020 : Concerns for SRH revolves around their bowling

Batting has not been SRH’s concern at all as the likes of Jonny Bairstow, skipper David Warner, Manish Pandey and Kane Williamson are all among runs and have the ability to shoulder the responsibility on their own.

But it is the bowling unit which let SRH down on Sunday against Rajasthan Royals.

Despite losing senior pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and all-rounder Mitchell Marsh to injuries, SRH have shown tremendous fighting abilities with Rashid Khan and yorker specialist T Natarajan doing the job for the side.

The likes of Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed and young Abhishek Sharma are the weak links in bowling which they need to address.
