And that's it from us for this game, do join us for the second game of the day between RR and MI.
Ambati Rayudu is the Man of the Match.
MS Dhoni: "At times even the best - Bravo - need a bit of advice. That's what they're paid for. What's important is you make mistakes and learn. In league stages you can afford to do that. Where we are at this point, a few mistakes won't dent us. Bowlers will learn out of it. Wickets have gone better. If you compare it to first few editions of the IPL, these wickets are better for batting. Need to give credit to the batsmen. They're getting stronger. 

"As we get into the knockout stages, we'll see the bowlers coming up with new plans. What's important is to give them - the younger bowlers - as many games. Deepak swings the ball and lends balance with his batting down the order. Shardul had a few bad games. Last international series wasn't good for him. But he has a good attitude. Rayudu was fantastic. One thing was where to make him play. Had to make space for him because I've always rated him highly. Whenever he hits the big shots, he maintains the shape. He's somebody who can bat at different numbers. But I prefer him opening the batting."
It was always going to be a tricky case and SRH lost their way in the middle overs, Kane held fort, paced it well, and then pressed on the accelerator, SRH came zooming past in, Yusuf Pathan too joined in and started belting sixes.

And, then they were both dismissed, Bravo had the ball, he picked up wickets, bowled yorkers and won the match for CSK.

However, it was day for Ambati Rayudu and then for Kane Williamson. And Rashid Khan belted 17 runs in 4 overs, but it was a bridge too far in the end!

Two losses in two days for SRH.
Over 20 SRH: 178/6(RR 8.90) Bowler: D Bravo Sum..: . 2 1 6 4 1
19.6 Bravo to Rashid, 1 run, excellent yorker on the stumps and Rashid can only dig that out to long on. CSK win by 4 runs and go to the top of the table.
19.5 Bravo to Rashid, FOUR, that was an outside edge but that sneaks past the short third man fielder and keeps SRH alive again.
19.4 Bravo to Rashid, SIX, length ball on the pads and Rashid Khan smashes that past square leg for a six. He's keeping SRH alive again.
19.3 Bravo to Saha, 1 run, full toss and Saha can just turn it around the corner  past short fine-leg but there is a fielder at deep square and it is just a single.
19.2 Bravo to Saha, 2 runs, that should have been a single to cover but a misfield means that they take two. Shardul Thakur was the fielder. Would that be costly?
19.1 Bravo to Saha, no run, excellent yorker from Bravo. That misses the stumps but safely in the hands of Dhoni.
Over 19 SRH: 164/6(RR 8.63) Bowler: S Thakur Sum..: 1 6 . W 1 6
18.6 Shardul to Rashid, SIX, that was in the slot and Rashid Khan keeps SRH alive with a six down the ground. He takes a step back and then sets himself up, the ball in the slot, creams that one over long off.
18.5 Shardul to Saha, 1 run, slower ball from Shardul and Saha can just hit that to deep mid-wicket for a single.
18.4 Shardul to Yusuf, OUT, Shardul takes the crucial wicket of Yusuf Pathan. He goes for the big one but finds Suresh Raina at cover. This was a valiant effort from Yusuf, but could not see it through!
18.3 Shardul to Yusuf, no run, full toss again but this time so far outside off that Yusuf can only hit that back to Shardul.
18.2 Shardul to Yusuf, SIX, full toss on the pads and Shardul presents a gift wrapped up in velvet to Yusuf Pathan. Of course he takes it with both hands. Gift if ever there was one, a full bunger, Yusuf could have hit that into the stands at deep square leg with eyes closed!
18.1 Shardul to Saha, 1 run, length ball outside off and Saha just drives that down the ground to get Yusuf back on strike.
Over 18 SRH: 150/5(RR 8.33) Bowler: D Bravo Sum..: 4 . 2 2 1 W
17.6 Bravo to Williamson, OUT, excellent slower ball from Bravo and Jadeja runs forward and takes a brilliant catch diving forward. That is just the wicket CSK needed. SPECTACULAR for Jadeja, he races forward, slides and takes the catch, all so neat, all so fluid. Kane is gone, is the match too?
17.5 Bravo to Yusuf, 1 run, another excellent yorker from Bravo. All Yusuf can do is dig it out and that is just a single to short fine-leg.
17.4 Bravo to Yusuf, 2 runs, slower ball and Yusuf runs through the pain barrier and takes a two down the ground.
Yusuf is ready to go again!
17.3 Bravo to Yusuf, 2 runs, Yusuf digs out that yorker and a brilliant hand on the ball from Watson at short fine leg. Keeps that to just two and Yusuf is struggling. He has had a nagging injury concern and that dive has just aggravated it!
17.2 Bravo to Yusuf, no run, another excellent yorker, this time from Bravo. Tailing in and all Yusuf can do is dig it out.
17.1 Bravo to Yusuf, FOUR, short ball and Yusuf pulls that wide of the fielder at short fine-leg. Not entirely in control, but gets the ball past short fine leg
Over 17 SRH: 141/4(RR 8.29) Bowler: S Thakur Sum..: 2 1 6 1 . .
16.6 Shardul to Williamson, no run, another brilliant wide yorker from Shardul. Williamson can do nothing about this as well. Two good balls to end the over, this chase is getting interesting now, very interesting!
16.5 Shardul to Williamson, no run, Kane walks across and goes for the scoop but he can't connect.
16.4 Shardul to Yusuf, 1 run, another good wide yorker but Yusuf digs it out and they take a single to point.
