  • Buttler celebrates his half-century against CSK

Losing team Chennai Super Kings head coach Stephen Fleming has praised Rajasthan Royals opener Jos Buttler for his match-winning unbeaten knock, saying the English batsman was a class apart during their IPL game here.

Earlier after being put in to bat first, the most consistent Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) batsmen Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson clicked once again to help their team post 179/4.

"Even before IPL started I had to make space for Rayudu, because he is somebody I rate very highly". He was aided massively by Shane Watson, who scored a half-century and was involved in a 134-run opening stand.

Second-place Chennai is within sight of a place in the playoffs with 16 points from 12 matches. The lowest was Super Kings' 27 against the same opposition in their first match against each other.

Chahar swung the ball both ways and stifled the Hyderabad top order, also bagging the wicket of Alex Hales in the process.

On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad is enjoying the success of its last matches.

For the Punjab side, Andrew Tye finished with four wickets for 41 runs in his four overs.

In the bowling department, spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Harbhajan Singh came into their own on the slow Pune surface against Royal Challengers Bangalore, sharing five wickets for 40 runs from their eight overs.

WICKET! Pandey's bad run continues. Once Dhawan and Williamson started looking risky they were dismissed in successive overs by Bravo and Shardul Thakur respectively to pull things back. Also, Dhoni needs just 69 runs to score the most runs in an IPL season. Just as the table toppers looked set for a big total, CSK bounced back by sending both the set batsmen back to the pavilion.

In Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma and Shakib Al Hasan, SRH probably possesses the best bowling line-up in the tournament. He'd hit him for another six in his following over to pick up another fifty and then back it up with a four in the same over.

Ambati Rayudu's 2018 Indian Premier League campaign has been something of an anomaly.

7 - Kane Williamson became the 3rd captain with seven fifty-plus scores in an IPL season. "We got (Ben) Stokes early but could not get Buttler who settled down nicely, got the momentum in the first six overs". The form of Manish Pandey in that batting unit is definitely a matter of concern and if Manish Pandey finds his touch SRH will become even more risky. Rayudu rubbed it in with more attacking shots and brought up his century with a single off Bhuvneshwar, as Chennai cantered home without much fuss.
