Alright, hope you guys have caught your breath back. Faf said at the presentation ceremony that he went back to dressing room and asked the guys that how did they win the game? Ah, he is so right. How did CSK win that really? In the end, it all went down to CSK's ability to chase any total down from any position and SRH's ability to defend lowest of totals with their brilliant bowling line-up. We know who came out with flying colours now.

There was no one dull moment in the game tonight. From Chahar taking Dhawan's wicket on the first ball of the match to Faf hitting the six to seal the win, we could not take the eyes off the match.

CSK are into their 7th final in 11 years of the tournament's existence and they were out for 2 years in 2016 and 2017 respestively. Yes, you read it right. That's the legacy of the team. 

SRH, well, they must be gutted right now. Yes, they have a chance left to undo the mistakes done today but as captain Williamson said, it would have been better if there was no need to fly to Kolkata to play another match. 

So, bye for now. We will back tomorrow with LIVE coverage of the Eliminator 1 between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals at 5 PM. Till then, good bye and good night.

MS Dhoni, Chennai Super Kings captain: I am always happy when we win. Being in the top two gives you the liberty of having one more game. Let's say if we had lost this game then we had another chance. They bowled very well, and there was a bit for the fast bowlers. Bhuvi bowled well, backed up well by Rashid. It's good to win a game like this but what's more important, is knowing how we can improve. (Is death bowling a worry?) This is the best death bowling combination that we have got. To find out who really my death bowler is. These are the resoruces that I have. You have to try to balance it out. It might hurt you sometimes. (On Faf) Faf's innings, is where experience counts. Hopefully he can continue this in the final also. (On their 7th IPL final) We've been a very good team. It reflects the dressing room atmosphere we've been able to create. It's not possible without that. Credit goes to management, support staff and players.

Faf du Plessis is the Player of the Match

Faf du Plessis: It is nice to make a contribution tonight. I was relfecting on the games I have played in Mumbai and took a bit of confidence from that. I just went to changing room and said to the guys -  'how did we win this game?'
The only thing you can do there is stay there. Everything went our way towards the end. Rashid Khan was very handful on that wicket. He was really tough to play on that wicket. It is hard to take him on. It was nice to get the team across the line. 

22:52 (IST)

And it will be Chennai who will stay in Mumbai for the FINAL to meet another challenging opponent on 27 May. 

The final three overs were a game changer for Chennai during bowling and chasing. And Thakur had a major part to play in both phases.

But, what an innings by Faf Du Plessis. It takes a special kind of player to soak in all the pressure while watching his teammates falling like nine pins and yet produce such a magnificent innings.

He didn't do much with the bat in the tournament but didn't he choose one of the biggest moment of them all.

Two champion teams. Two champion performances 

And one finalist - Chennai Super Kings

Faf and Thakur embrace passionately until the rest of the players come sprinting out. Kaul is on his haunches. Extraordinary scenes at the Wankhede. CSK into another final of the IPL and they have another hero in du Plessis, who carries his bat.

Sunrisers fought well, but CSK had just about enough. Fans are in tears. It has been a remarkable day of cricket.

IPL 2018 Live Cricket Score, SRH vs CSK Qualifier 1 at Mumbai, latest score and cricket updates: Brathwaite comes and has been hit all over the park. 20 off the last over. They might have lost Harbhajan but CSK knows that if there is anyone who can win the game for them, it is Faf. Chennai Super Kings need 23 runs in 12 balls.

Preview: As the 11th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) nears its climax, all eyes will be on the top two sides — Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) — locking horns in the first qualifier on Tuesday at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai for a place in the 27 May final.

Both Chennai and Hyderabad finished the league stage on 18 points, but the Kane Williamson-led side got their neck ahead to the No.1 spot with a superior net run-rate and Tuesday's winner will be guaranteed a place in the final at the same venue while the loser gets a second chance in the second qualifier in Kolkata on May 25.

Going in to the match, the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led CSK hold a slight edge as they have got the better of their southern rivals twice in the league stage this season.

The yellow brigade have been on a roll since making their comeback to the IPL fold after serving a two-year-ban, and have rarely lost the momentum this season with the old guards and new sensations firing in unison.

In their final league game at their adopted home ground in Pune on Sunday, CSK rode on Suresh Raina's gutsy half century to not only romp home by five wickets but also stop Kings XI Punjab from entering the play-offs.

On the other hand, the Sunrisers have been on a three-game losing run, having already sealed their play-off spot with a victory on May 10 against Delhi Daredevils.

Interestingly, it was the CSK who halted Sunrisers' six-game winning streak with a comprehensive eight-wicket drubbing on May 13 in Pune.

Much of the credit for the Orange Army's entry into the playoffs goes to the consistency of skipper Kane Williamson, who sits second in the leading run-getters' list with 661 runs and the bowling unit leg by paceman Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Afghan spinner Rashid Khan.

Besides Williamson, Shikhar Dhawan (437 runs) has lately come good with the bat but it is the middle order comprising Manish Pandey, Wriddhiman Saha, Yusuf Pathan and Shakib Al Hasan, who needs to share the responsibility of building on the platform set up by the top order.

Sunrisers' bowling this season have been extraordinary with Rashid and Shakib as well as the pace trio of Bhuvneshwar, Siddarth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma, combining well to defend paltry totals.

On Tuesday, Sunrisers will once again hope that their bowling will do the trick against an in-form Chennai top order comprising the likes of Ambati Rayudu, who has been their standout performer with 586 runs and had in fact taken the game away with a scintillating hundred when the two teams last met.

Rayudu's opening partner Shane Watson has also been in top form, accumulating 438 runs from 13 matches, while Suresh Raina, skipper Dhoni and all-rounder Deepak Chahar have been the backbone of CSK's middle order.

In the bowling front, the former two-time champions will bank on young South African Lungi Ngidi, who grabbed 4 for 10 to take the man of the match award on Sunday.

With Shardul Thakur, Chahar and Dwayne Bravo doing their bit on the pace bowling front, CSK will hope for veteran Harbhajan Singh leading the spin attack with left-armer Ravindra Jadeja in the middle overs.

The match timings for the play-offs have been advanced by one hour, which means the match will start at 7 p.m. Ahead of the clash, a women's exhibition game will take place at 2 p.m. with top Indian and foreign players taking part in the contest at the Wankhede.

Squads:

Chennai Super Kings: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain & WK), Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Faf Du Plessis, Harbhajan Singh, Dwayne Bravo, Shane Watson, Ambati Rayadu, Deepak Chahar, KM Asif, Kanish Seth, Lungi Ngidi, Dhruv Shorey, Murali Vijay, Sam Billings, Mark Wood, Kshtiz Sharma, Monu Kumar, Chaitanya Bishnoi, Imran Tahir, Karn Sharma, Shardul Thakur, N agadeesan, David Willy.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Kane Williamson (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Wriddhiman Saha (WK), Siddarth Kaul, Deepak Hooda, Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Yusuf Pathan, Shreevats Goswami (WK), Ricky Bhui, Basil Thampi, T Natarajan, Sachin Baby, Bipul Sharma, Mehdi Hasan, Tanmay Agarwal, Alex Hales, Carlos Brathwaite, Rashid Khan, Shakib Al Hasan, Mohammad Nabi and Chris Jordan.
