Former Black Caps captain Stephen Fleming now works as a T20 coach, with the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL and for the Melbourne Stars in Australia's Big Bash League. Siddarth Kaul bowling the 19th over paid for his inexperience in crunch game as 17 runs came off that over as no 10 Shardul Thakur (15 off 5 balls) got three boundaries including a streaky one.

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

Yusuf Pathan contributed 24 but it was Carlos Brathwaite's 43 not out from 29 balls that helped Hyderabad post 139-7, however it was not enough in the end.

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. Sunrisers will need their middle order, especially Manish Pandey, to take up more responsibility to counter the Super Kings' thrust.

"We've been a very good team and it reflects when it comes to the IPL". The New Zealand captain feathered a catch down leg-side ball off Shardul Thakur to rival captain Dhoni to leave Hyderabad reeling at 36 for 3 in the fifth over. Sam Billings is out, Shane Watson is in for Chennai Super Kings. The form of key batsman Suresh Raina, who anchored the innings splendidly against Kings XI with an unbeaten 61, is another encouraging sign. The match timings have been advanced by one hour for the play-offs.
