Right then, that brings an end to our coverage of this Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL). Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for the latest news as well as live commentaries of matches from all around the world. 

Do join us tomorrow at 7:30pm IST as the Delhi Capitals take on the Rajasthan Royals at Dubai. Till then, this is me, Pradeep Somashekar, and my partner, Gaurav Kadam, signing off, good night!
How crucial were those blistering hits from Jadeja at the end of the first innings proved and how valuable it was which put them on the drivers seat from the word go during the chase. 

Sunrisers never looked in control of the chase from the beginning, they lost Warner and Manish Pandey in the powerplay and that pegged back their chase big time. Bairstow never looked in full flow in this innings before Jadeja knocks him over with a straighter delivery. They needed one from the top 4 to anchor the innings till the end but only Williamson kept going for them and he ensured he gets those crucial boundaries in the middle overs to keep them in the chase but no one gave company to him to take the attack on and Williamson could've played freely.

Priyam Garg used up few deliveries as well to get in and perished later on trying to play a shot and holds out at deep. Vijay Shankar then came in and looked promising as he took on Bravo and smashed him for a maximum and perished playing another, that probably set them back deep in the chase. 

Kane Williamson was the lone warrior throughout the innings and he gets to his fifty but goes soon as it was too much to ask for in the end and they needed 59 runs off the final 4 overs but Karn Sharma picks up the big wicket of Williamson who was looking dangerous in the end to send him packing that probably ended the hopes for the Sunrisers but Rashid Khan had other ideas as he smashed Karn for a boundary and a SIX in the same over to keep the hopes alive for them as they scored 19 runs off it and they needed 27 off 12 balls but things went haywire for them from there on as Shardul Thakur bowled brilliantly and kept it simple per the plan and bowled wide yorkers and Rashid failed to connect one and perished later on. 

Bravo in the final over did what he usually does as he picks up 2 wickets for himself to bring a smile on the CSK fans for a much needed victory as Super Kings keeps their hopes alive in the tournament, they need to win a few more and be in the contention for play-offs.
Presentation time!

David Warner at the presentation says, the chase never took on and the wicket was bit on a slower side. They wanted to take it deep and see how it goes from there, but this is what happens in cricket, you can't win always. He thought 160 was good enough and they could go after but anything above than that was difficult on this wicket with 2 wickets down early in the chase. He thought they would've wanted an extra batter and would've been nice and thinks that's how the game of cricket goes.

MS Dhoni at the presentation says, ultimately it's important to get those 2 points, T20 has shown that you have a few games that don't go your way, he thought they did a good job with the bat and the bowl and got the decent total on the board up front, 160-170 was a very good score to post. 160+ is par score is what he says, doesn't look to depend much on the fast bowlers as he's given the freedom to them to pitch the ball on the right areas and express themselves. He's pleased with how Curran has been able to accommodate to whatever the team's demand and he can score those quick fire 30 or 40 and also open the bowling and pick wickets early on.

Ravindra Jadeja has been adjudged the Man of the Match!

at the presentation says, he's very happy and when the team is under pressure you perform and you'll feel happy about it. He backed himself to hit those much needed runs at the end and put their team in the commanding position. He said, the wicket looked on the slower side, so, he just looked to bowl at the stumps and not to give any room for the batsman. He takes great pleasure in fielding and affects those catches and run-outs for the team.

What an over for Super Kings, game changing one as Thakur bowled that over with precision and didn't allow Rashid to smoke a few and Rashid Khan the only hope perishes in that over, it's almost over for them at the moment!
