  • That brings us to the end of the 41st match of IPL 2019, with Chennai Super Kings nearly securing their berth in the playoffs after taking their points tally to 16 following a six-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad. The race to the playoffs certainly is getting hotter with each passing game, with teams such as Mumbai Indians and Delhi capitals narrowly behind CSK in the points table.

    Meanwhile, we have Royal Challengers Bangalore hosting Kings XI Punjab at the Chinnaswamy tomorrow. A defeat will not only end RCB's hopes of making it to the last four for good, but will also help KXIP move ahead of SRH to the fourth spot in the points table.

    Do joins us in our coverage of Wednesday's fixture. For now, it's time for us to bid you all good night!

  • CSK vs SRH Expert's Voice

    Chepauk finally rolls out a pitch that their fans deserve. How crucial were those final few overs of Hyderabad's inning where they couldn't capitalize on a great platform set by Warner and Pandey. CSK started with extreme caution playing 10 dot balls at the start. But Watson and Raina quickly made amends with a flurry of boundaries. Raina fell against Rashid along the way, but once Watson discovered the middle of his bat there was only going to be one winner in the game. He destroyed Rashid Khan in his second spell and essentially saw them home before falling just short of his hundred. There were a few anxious moments in the end when Khaleel bowled a brilliant 19th over to take the game deep but Jadhav kept his nerve and saw it through in the end. CSK are almost certain of a place in the playoff now barring the slight statistical probabilities. 

  • Shane Watson: I was well due for runs, that's for sure. Can't than Fleming and Dhoni enough for their faith in me. Most other teams would have dropped a few games ago. I sincerely do appreciate, and was nice to be able to repay their faith. At times in the Big Bash, I was in good nick. It was about getting the technique right. Bhuvi's incredibly skilful bowler especially with the new ball. 

  • Shane Watson is the Man of the Match for his 96 off 53 balls! 

  • MS Dhoni, CSK Captain: I think we can give individuals a few games and the team gives them the rest. Watson has been match-winner for us so we have to back him. He has been batting well in the nets. Whatever small innings he played so far, he was middling them well although he did struggle a bit. This is the time when you need to back them. Management's thinking was to give him as many games as possible. It's good to see different individuals step up every game. Nice to see our bowling department do well but would like our batting unit also get into the mode that's necessary for the playoffs. Credit has to also go to the support staff who play a huge role in keeping the atmoshphere within the team good

  • Harbhajan Singh, CSK: It's always nice to go out there to do what I do. Unfortunately had to miss out a couple of games due to sickness. It's nice to be back and playing, and really happy with the result. We're trying to have strong heart, but we would've liked to finish the game in the 19th over itself. Somehow they have the tendency to take it to the last over. As long as you're getting the right result, it's fine. Nice to see Shane Watson getting the runs under his belt. This will boost his confidence. Going forward, will be a good thing for CSK. 

  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar, SRH captain: It was a par score on the wicket, and there was a little bit of dew. (On Rashid's poor spell) Anyone can have an off day. It was amazing hitting, you cannot hit Rashid like that. Credit goes to Watson. There's no doubt these guys have done really well, but there are guys who can replace him. But we are going to miss him. Next three games out of four are away games, so we have to really win those games to qualify for the playoffs. A lot. It gives me a lot of experience. How to go about my bowling. It is helping me mature as a player. 

  • This is CSK’s fifth consecutive victory at home this IPL.

  • CSK vs SRH Expert's Voice

    Watson misses a hundred, but what a knock it has been. He is unstoppable when he gets going. There aren't many batsmen in the world who can hit with such power and consistency over a long inning. Kudos to Dhoni and Fleming for showing faith in him. They know that on his night, he wins games single-handedly.

  • CSK vs SRH Expert's Voice

    CSK are cruising now with Watson hitting peak form. It's almost impossible to stop him in this mood. Spinners or seamers, he has the answer to anything you threw at him. That's what you get when you show faith in your key performers. Dhoni and Fleming know the value of Watson once he hits form. These runs carry great value not just for this game but also for the rest of the tournament.

  • This is Watson's first fifty-plus score in last 11 IPL innings. His last 50-plus score also came against SRH at Mumbai in 2018.

  • CSK vs SRH Expert's Voice

    Watson is finally coming to the party for Chennai this season. The hosts have waited patiently for him. He has tantalized them with a few starts but today he has finally put his hand up in an important chase for the men in yellow. He needs to stick around and finish the job now for his team.

  • Top delivery from a high quality player

  • CSK vs SRH Expert's Voice

    Unfamiliar territory for CSK as they have a platform in this chase. It means that Dhoni will not walk into a crisis for a change. CSK will be delighted in fact if Dhoni doesn't have to make a contribution at all in this chase. He had asked for Top three to be finishers after their last game. It's time for Raina or Watson to stay there till the end tonight and come good on the captain's expectations. 

  • After 10 overs,Chennai Super Kings 80/2 ( Shane Watson 35 , )

    CSK Score Latest Updates

  • SRH spinners' economy rate of 6.62 so far in this IPL before today - the second best among all the teams.

IPL 12 Match 41 CSK vs SRH at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai: CSK win! Sandeep bowls the final over, and is hit for a six off the second delivery to further reduce the equation. Rayudu's dismissed off the third delivery with the scores level, before Bravo walks out and collects the winning run. CSK win by six wickets, and are back on top of the table!

IPL 2019, CSK vs SRH, Today's Match Preview: Chennai Super Kings take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 41st match of the Indian Premier League.

Chennai Super Kings were cruising at one stage being the table toppers but they have suffered a jolt in their last two matches and Delhi Capitals have overtaken them at the top of the table.

Chennai, however, had a game in hand and will be looking to regain that position with a win against SRH at Chepauk.

Their biggest concern is the top order. SRH bowlers will be looking to exploit that weakness and also searching for tricks to get rid of MS Dhoni early.

Dhoni is the pivot around which CSK revolves and he will again be the key going into the match.

SRH, om the other hand, got back to winning ways with a thumping win over Kolkata Knight Riders. CSK's biggest challenge will be to stop the marauding opening partnership of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow.

The biggest advantage for CSK is that they are back at home where they have won all their four matches.

The last time these two teams met, it was a one-sided affair with SRH chasing down 133 easily to win by six wickets.

However, things could be different this time around. Expect a cracker.
