CSK faced the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Match 14 of the tournament. SRH set a target of 165 runs for the Yellow brigade to chase. CSK managed to score 157 runs and lost the match by 7 runs.
Chennai Super Kings lost three successive matches for the first time since the 2014 season. CSK hasn’t been performing while chasing totals off late. They again got off to a very bad start against the Sunrisers. CSK lost early wickets and were reeling at 42/4 in the 9th over. Captain MS Dhoni (47*) and Ravindra Jadeja (50) tried to consolidate in the middle and register a memorable win for the Yellow army. (CSK News:)

“Yesterday’s match was a face-off between brains and brawn. It was ‘The Rock’ Warner vs ‘Big Brain Gabbar’ Dhoni. They say, both brains and brawn are required to win any battle but yesterday, Hyderabad’s warriors using only brawn demolished Chennai’s strategies,” said Sehwag on his web show ‘Viru Ki Baithak’.

“Chennai’s senior team must have thought that Hyderabad’s top 4 scorers were gone when these 2 youngsters (Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma) came to bat, ‘What could these kids possibly do?’. But these kids were amazing, they cut Chennai down to size.
Chennai, who are known for their cool attitude, turned out to be fools in their own plan. Did Hyderabad win the match or did the Chennai Test Kings think they were at net practise?” added Sehwag.
At one stage, CSK was in a dominant position when SRH were reeling at 69/4. However, Priyam Garg (51*) and Abhishek Sharma (31) played two vital innings to guide the team to a decent and competitive total. In reply, CSK could not handle the pressure of the asking rate yet again and lost the match in Dubai. (CSK News:)
