Jonny Bairstow and David Warner struck blistering half-centuries to help Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) break their losing streak in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) as they defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) by six wickets at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, here on Wednesday.

SRH reached the 133-run target with 19 balls to spare to move to the fifth spot in the points table.

Chasing the target, SRH got off to a flying start as both Warner and Bairstow continued with their rampage and collected 66 runs in 5.4 overs before the Australian got out after scoring an explosive 25-ball fifty which included 10 fours.

Skipper Kane Williamson, who came in next, couldn’t stay much at the crease and became the victim of leg-spinner Imran Tahir at his individual score of 3.

However, Bairstow stayed at the other end to continue his prolific run in the ongoing IPL and collected boundaries at will. The explosive England opener remained unbeaten at 61. The 44-ball inning was studded with three fours and three sixes.
