The Indian Premier League (IPL) never disappoints when it comes to nail-biting thrillers on the 22 yards and same was the case today in the first qualifier of the season.
A brilliant innings from Faf du Plessis of 67 not out helped Chennai Super Kings beat SunRisers Hyderabad by two wickets in the first qualifier of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 at the Wankhede Stadium to enter the IPL 2018 final,
Needing 140 runs to win, Chennai chased down the target with five balls to spare. Du Plessis kept on playing sensibly throughout when no other batsmen clicked and went back cheaply. He played 42 balls and slammed five boundaries and four sixes.
Hyderabad will now face the winner of the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals in Qualifier 2 on May 25 at Kolkata.
