Bairstow falls early
Last match in IPL and Jonny Bairstow falls for a duck. Flashes at a quick and wide delivery, and edges it to the keeper. Dhoni always takes them. In walks Manish Pandey…. 5/1
Dhoni wins the toss…
CSK opt to bowl
Harbhajan Singh replaces Shardul Tahur for CSK. For SRH, Shakib al Hasan and Manish Pandey come in place of Kane Williamson and Shahbaz Nadeem.
Here are the teams:
Sunrisers Hyderabad:David Warner, Jonny Bairstow(w), Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar(c), Sandeep Sharma, K Khaleel Ahmed
Chennai Super Kings: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni(w/c), Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir
No Williamson tonight
The SRH captain has flown home for personal reasons, so the reins should be back with Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Will Kane Williamson return? Unlikely. We’ll keep you updated on that.
“Nabi is bowling on the side pitch. He might be the man to replace KW,” Pradeep informs from the ground.
Hello and welcome
Two teams, two very different journeys. Take their last game for example. The Chennai Super Kings faltered at the line, losing the game by 1 run. There was no line for Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match, coasting to a nine-wicket win with little effort. Can Warner and Bairstow be the same force on Chennai’s slow, low surface? It’s a dry crack mosaic, Daren Ganga informs us. Bairstow was unbelievable at the Kotla earlier this season and he’ll want to stamp his authority on Chepauk in his last match this IPL. Might not be so easy against CSK, who know a thing or two about winning.
