IPL 2021: Chennai beats Hyderabad, reaches playoffs
Three time champions Chennai Super Kings have officially qualified for IPL 2021 playoffs after defeating Hyderabad by 6 wickets. Gaikwad and Faf started off extremely well in the chase, and raced away to 75-0 in ten overs. CSK later lost Moeen to Rashid, but played him out in the end to take on the remainder of the attack.
In the end, it was Rayudu and MS Dhoni, who did play out a few dots and perhaps took it a little too close for comfort, before finishing things off with a few lusty blows. Earlier, CSK restricted Hyderabad to 134 after 20 overs thanks to a disciplined bowling effort. Josh Hazlewood picked three wickets. Hazlewood first dismissed Jason Roy and then came back to pick two more wickets in the 17th over as CSK restricted SRH to a below-par total. Wickets kept falling at regular intervals as SRH lost Priyam Garg and Saha within the span of 10 balls. Saha played a good hand with 44 as SRH were reduced to 74/4.SRH collapsed from 109/4 to 117/7 within two overs. In the end, the side was only able to score 134/7 runs in the allotted 20 overs.
