Sunrisers Hyderabad came in to play against Delhi Capitals after making four changes in the squad. However, they failed to find solutions to their middle-order frailties and succumbed to DC. Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, tamed the KKR batsmen as Imran Tahir took 4 wickets to hand over CSK a win by 5 wickets. Sunrisers Hyderabad would aim to bounce back stronger when they host CSK in Hyderabad.
The roar of the lions continues
Imran Tahir scripted a win for the Chennai Super Kings in the last match as he dismissed Nitish Rana, Robin Uthappa, Chris Lynn and Andre Russell to dismantle the innings of the Kolkata Knight Riders. This was further bolstered by Suresh Raina's unbeaten knock of 58 runs off 42 balls and an astonishing finish by Ravindra Jadeja who sealed the match for his side with two balls to spare.
Sunrisers Hyderabad struggle with their batting woes
Sunrisers Hyderabad suffered a dramatic collapse in the last header against Delhi Capitals where they lost their eight wickets for 15 runs and ended up losing by 39 runs. SRH made four changes after suffering twin defeats but that could not change their fate as their middle order again failed to fire as they succumbed to the hosts. They would aim to plug their loopholes when they host a buoyant Chennai in Hyderabad.
