Hyderabad: May 8, 2013

Chennai Super Kings completed a comprehensive 77-run victory over the Sunrisers Hyderabad in 54th match of the Indian Premier League 2013. This heavy loss leaves the home side in a precarious position as they retained their fifth spot in the points table.

Chasing a mammoth 223, the Sunrisers had their backs to the wall and needed a herculean effort to overcome Chennai. They were pegged back early when Shikhar Dhawan was run out courtesy some smart glove work from MS Dhoni behind the stumps.

Parthiv Patel showed some intent of keeping the home side in the game and took the attack to the Chennai bowlers. He was joined by skipper Kumar Sangakkara who endured another failure, departing for just two runs off seven deliveries, leaving Sunrisers at 46 for two in the sixth over. Two overs later, Hanuma Vihari was walking back to the dugout after failing to clear Murali Vijay at long on.

Darren Sammy started the proceedings with a big six but he too fell, going for seven runs off three deliveries.
Patel was still holding things up from the other end and went down trying to accelerate further. He holed one out to Vijay deep square leg after making 44 off just 30 deliveries.

Thisara Perera gave the home fans something to cheer about with a few big blows but gave the purple cap holder Dwayne Bravo his first wicket of the night in the 13th over. At this stage, the Sunrisers Hyderabad were reeling at 99 for six.

The total was always going to be tough to chase under lights against a decent bowling line-up and the Sunrisers were clearly the second best side in all departments of the game.

There wasn’t a single moment in the game when it felt like the Sunrisers could pull off a David Miller-like chase to stun the opposition. Such was the domination of MS Dhoni’s team. The home side eventually ended 77 runs short.
