To keep playoffs alive Sunrisers Hyderabad came out well to beat Chennai Super Kings which now makes them to hope on some other results to be in playoffs. On other hand Chennai has lost three games in a row and now they are in a danger to end up under 2nd place which will not be easy to make into finals as you need to win back to back two games to enter finals in playoffs if end up at 3rd or 4th place. David Warner played a key role in SRH’s 6 wicket win who scored 90 and won the Man of the Match.
This is what the captains of both the teams have to say:
Losing team’s captain Dhoni expressed his worry over his team’s hat-trick of losses. He felt that they failed to put on a good score which was due to himself as he took too many balls in starting to score. He felt that SRH was batting at a rate that only a score around 230 could have stopped them from a win.
MS Dhoni (CSK’s Captain): “The run of defeats is something we have to address. We have lost the last two matches easily, which is worrying. I didn’t think we put enough runs on the board, and I ate up a lot of deliveries early. I think 190 would have been a par score. With the way the opposition were scoring, I think we needed to get closer to 230.“
Winning team’s captain Sammy has appreciated his team for rising up for the challenge. He credited Dhawan and Warner for the win. He was happy that they bowled first on this track. He was happy with Warner’s promotion has been working well. He concluded hoping that things go in their way.
Darren Sammy (SRH’s Captain): “We have been rising to the challenge, looking to control what we can. Good thing we bowled first. Credit to Warner and Dhawan. After a few games you tend to look for ways to improve, and Warner has always been better up the order. We can just hope things go in our favour.“
Man of the Match David Warner was happy that his team won the game which is important than his century. He credited Shikhar Dhawan for scoring back to back fifties, coming back into form at right time. He said that he enjoys batting at the top order as well as middle order. He said that he like to smash the ball over the fence.
David Warner (Man of the match): “(Didn’t score a century) Importantly we won and credit to Shikhar for back to back fifties. I love batting at the top of the order and I also enjoyed batting in the middle order. I obviously like to hit as many over the boundary.“
