T20 2018: Chennai pip Hyderabad to make their seventh Twenty20 final

The two-time champions defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by two wickets in a low-scoring thriller at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

SRH will now take on the victor of the eliminator match between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders, to be held at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, tomorrow, at the same venue on May 25.

The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) is all set to play against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the first qualifier of the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Tuesday.

Chasing 140 for a win and a direct entry into the final of the IPL 2018, CSK nearly made a mess of the seemingly easy run chase, before winning by two wickets and five balls to spare.

With 43 needing off last three overs, Du Plessis, who opened the batting, launched into Carlos Brathwaite's 18th over smashing him for 20 runs which included two sixes and two fours.

Rayudu's opening partner Shane Watson has also been in top form, accumulating 438 runs from 13 matches, while Suresh Raina, skipper Dhoni and all-rounder Deepak Chahar have been the backbone of CSK's middle order.

MS Dhoni managed just nine before being bowled by Rashid Khan, and at the halfway stage Chennai were 50 for four.

Watching the meltdown from the other end, Du Plessis then took the onus on himself to put Chennai's chase back on track and he got good support from number 10 batsman Shardul Thakur who made 15 not out from five balls.

Earlier, CSK bowling attack utilised lively pitch to the fullest as they restricted Sunrisers to a modest 139/7.

Dhawan, the second-highest scorer for Hyderabad with 437 runs, was played on off Deepak Chahar of the first delivery of the match. The New Zealand captain feathered a catch down leg-side ball off Shardul Thakur to rival captain Dhoni to leave Hyderabad reeling at 36 for 3 in the fifth over.

Chennai Super Kings rally around Faf du Plessis after the South Africa test captain batted them into the IPL final.
