The 29th match of the 13th season of the Indian Premier League 2020 was played between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad. In this match, Chennai Super Kings defeated Hyderabad by 20 runs.
The Chennai team, winning the toss and batting first, scored 167 runs for the loss of 6 wickets in 20 overs. In response to this, the Sunrisers Hyderabad team was able to score 147 runs at the loss of 8 wickets in the prescribed 20 overs.
After this match ended, Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni praised the team and said that it is a match that was a little close to perfecting. Chennai captain Dhoni said, in the end, it means for us that you are getting two points. Some matches in the T20 cricket show that whatever you are doing, you are doing right.
And there is no need to change anything in it. There are some such matches which tell that even after earning nothing, you went on your plan. Veteran captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni of Chennai Super Kings said that today I felt that we have done a lot of good. In this match, we knew that if we could not do well then we can go out of this tournament.
But we had to bat well in this match. And we did quite well by scoring over 160 runs. And it all depends on your start in the first 6 overs. In today’s match, our fast bowlers did a great job. The same spinners also bowled well. Dhoni said that this is the one who was a little closer to perfect.
In this match, Mahendra Singh Dhoni made changes in his opening players in view of Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers and sent Sam Karan to bat in place of Shane Watson. On the one hand, Fof Duplessis got away while San Karan and on the other side started the innings quite well.
In this opening innings, Karan scored 31 runs in 21 balls fast, and the captain’s decision was largely corrected. But Duplessis, who got down from the other side, could not do much special and caught Bairstow on the first match.
While Shane Watson, who came to bat at number three, played brilliant innings of 42 runs. The same Mahendra Singh Dhoni bowled only two of his bowlers Deepak Chahar and Sam Karan in the power play. And both of them also vindicated the captain’s decision.
