Hyderabad’s slim chances of reaching the Indian Premier League playoffs will be abolished if they fail to beat two-time champions Chennai in Ranchi tonight.
The Sunrisers halted their three-match losing run by beating the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last outing.
Chasing 160 against RCB, Hyderabad dropped big-hitting Australian Aaron Finch down the order to four.
Finch did his job, contributing an unbeaten 11 to help see his side over the line with two balls and seven wickets to spare. However, he is expected to open the batting again today.
Chennai, who can go level on points with leaders Kings XI Punjab with a win this evening, were beaten in their last game.
MS Dhoni’s men lost at home to the Kolkata Knight Riders, who easily chased down 155 to secure an emphatic eight-wicket win.
Prediction: Chennai will be keen to make up for that rare home loss last time out. I’m pretty sure they will too. Back to normality… CSK win.
