While on the other hand Chennai Super Kings have been doing very well in the tournament. The MS Dhoni-led team has come with various difficulties into this season. They had their worst ever IPL season last year.
However, for the first time, Chennai Super Kings failed to qualify for the playoffs. The most consistent team in the IPL was performing very badly. They lost their best opener Shane Watson who retired from cricket.
But like a champion side, Chennai Super Kings roared back in this season of the IPL. The MS Dhoni-led team has been the most perfect in this edition. They are currently sitting at the first position with nine wins in eleven matches. They could easily have the top two position based advantage.
However, CSK had won the toss and they decided to bowl first. SRH have been struggling with batting and the same thing happened. The batting lineup of Hyderabad was not looking in good shape at all.
Jason Roy who was the star performer for the orange army the last match went out for just two runs. However, Wridhiman Saha played a crucial knock of 44 runs to help SRH. The one-time IPL winners put up a total of 134 runs for CSK.

Chennai Super Kings had a good start after the openers stitched up a partnership of 75 runs for the first wicket. However, things began to shake a little bit after the wicket of Ruturaj Gaikwad.
The Five-time champions were seen struggling due to their middle order. Their middle order has not been consistent at all. Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni have only added more problems in terms of their form.
While the West Indies international Jason Holder took full advantage of the off form. He quickly took three wickets to bring the match right at the level. And due to Jason Holder, the match was getting closer to Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Jason Holder has been consistently performing for Sunrisers Hyderabad at least in terms of bowling. He has not been very good with batting but his fielding and bowling have been top-notch.
However, the crucial breakthroughs did not help Sunrisers Hyderabad. Chennai Super Kings took the two points after the winning six of MS Dhoni in the last over of the second innings.
With this vital win against SRH, the MS Dhoni team has officially qualified for the playoffs. And they are also sitting firmly at the topmost position of the IPL table. Chennai is looking a very dangerous side this season.
