Chennai Super Kings (CSK) managed to post a total of 182 after a slow start against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the match 20 of Vivo IPL 2018. Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu stitched a partnership of 112 for the fourth wicket to guide CSK to a competitive total. Rayudu anchored the innings with a brilliant knock of 79 off 37 before getting run out. Raina recorded his 32nd half century of IPL and also regained the top spot in the list of most run-scorer in IPL.

SRH surely missed Shikhar Dhawan today who was replaced by Ricky Bhui. Bhui was out on a duck in the first over to Deepak Chahar. Chahar generated good movement off the pitch and finished with impressive figures of 4-1-15-3. Kane Williamson fought hard with his knock of 84 for 51 but failed to take SRH home. The match was a last over thriller as CSK won by 4 runs.
