After posting a competitive total of 182/3, CSK managed to eke out the win after SRH were able to score only 1 off the 6 runs required off the final ball. Shane Watson pulls him for a massive six, but flicks a catch next ball to be dismissed!

The risky Watson was on his way.

Over 10: 54/2, Finally some run came for CSK, with 13 runs they cross 50. Raina and Dhoni were unbeaten at 54 and 25 respectively.

Right from the time Mahendra Singh Dhoni was made the captain of the Indian cricket team, the wicketkeeper-batsman was subject to an oft-repeated statement - Dhoni received a well-built team and his success was more due to his team and not reflective of his ability as a captain.

Heaping laurels on Rayudu, he said, "He was fantastic". Deepak Hooda comes into the attack and Rayudu welcomes him with a boundary. And I have seen him bat up the order at No. 3. He is a big player for us, he has been hitting the ball nicely and scoring a lot of runs for us. "He can bat at all numbers, but I'd prefer to see him opening, where he looks very risky". Kane Williamson (84) and Yusuf Pathan (45) kept the home team in the hunt with a 79-run sixth-wicket stand that came off just 45 balls.

In the 18th over however Bravo showed his class. ESPNCricinfo had his control percentage at over 90% and that in a steep run-chase, while losing partners regularly, is just a stunning example of classical batsmanship.

Williamson, who hit six fours and five sixes, was outfoxed by Bravo off a slower delivery in the 18th over and Ravindra Jadeja plucked a brilliant two-handed diving catch in the deep.

With Shardul Thakar removing the unsafe Pathan in the next over it was up to Bravo to defend 18 in over number 20. Rashid Khan played some big shots during the fag end of the match and scored 17 runs off 4 balls with one four and 2 sixes, but it wasn't enough to win the match.

Trump bringing on board Rudy Giuliani was a wise decision: Alan Dershowitz
Giuliani said he formalized his decision in recent days, including over dinner last week at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. One person close to the White House expressed surprise that Giuliani would accept a job under such challenging conditions.

While this may be considered to be true in his formative days with the ODI and Test side, the Twenty20 format has been where Dhoni, the captain, shines brightest. "I think the new ball on that surface was very tough, and as the ball got older I think it became a little bit more even". We wanted to get off a good start - you always do - it wasn't to be today but it was nice to be able to put together some partnerships and it is just a shame that we could not get across the line.

In reply, SRH had a horror start as Deepak Chahar took a wicket in each of his first 3 overs and at one point had only conceded 1 run.

"What's important is to give these guys (Chahar and Thakur) some time". A strong back-foot player, Rayudu cut and pulled easily, while using that inside out lofted shot that he loves to great effect.
