Chennai Super Kings clinch last over thriller against Sunrisers Hyderabad

Dwayne Bravo consistently bowled in the block hole in a tense finish as Chennai Super Kings prevailed over a weakened Sunrisers Hyderabad by four runs to consolidate their position at the top of the order in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Given the responsibility of bowling the final over with SRH requiring 19 runs, the composed Dwayne Bravo was hit for six and a four by Rashid to bring the equation to six off one. Bravo managed to get it on the block hole and Rashid could only manage a single. (Source: IPL)

CSK were well served by Ambati Rayudu's smashing knock of 79 off only 37 balls and Suresh Raina's brisk 43-ball 54. The duo of Rayudu and Raina added 112 runs for the third wicket as SRH struggled for breakthroughs (Source: IPL)

From 22 for three, SRH moved to 71 in the 11th over when Shakib Al Hasan (24) was dismissed by spinner Karn Sharma. Williamson, however, was not going to go down without a fight as the talismanic New Zealander conjured another half century partnership with Yusuf. (Source: IPL)
