Shane Watson missed out on getting to his 5th IPL century.

CSK win by four wickets

They go back to the top of the table. They have 16 points now. Almost through. There is one scenario by which they can lose out on NRR. But let's put it this way, no team with 16 points has missed out on qualification.

Great day for Watson and Manish Pandey, who shrugged off bad form. A day to forget for Sandeep Sharma and Rashid Khan with the ball!

That's it from us. Hang around the site for all the post-match analysis.

A timely six saves CSK

Manish Pandey's acrobatic effort at the deep mid-wicket boundary isn't enough to prevent a Kedar Jadhav six. He's stepped beyond the boundary before releasing the ball. CSK still make heavy weather off the final 3 runs with Rayudu miscuing a pull and getting caught at mid-off.

Jadhav then hits Bravo with a drive but they scamper for a single. Victory!

Needless tension?

This is classic CSK. Add some late spark. Jadhav and Rayudu take their time and leave themselves needing 9 to win off the final over.

No ton for Watto

Unfortunate. Would have been his fifth and tied him with Virat Kohli on second place (You know who is first). But this has been a terrific innings, and it's been ended by a combination of a very good slower-ball bouncer from Bhuvneshwar Kumar and a diving catch by Jonny Bairstow (his last contribution this IPL?)

Watson - 96 off 52 (9x4, 6x6) SR 181.13

Watson into fourth gear

His shoulder brush with Rashid was enough of a trigger. He picked a six and a four off Rashid after that, and, wait, is he looking good enough for a hundred here? He's on 89 off 50, and CSK need 26 more runs off 24 balls.

Rashid Khan today: 4-0-44-1

Sandeep update

In his 3 overs, Sandeep has conceded 45 of the 104 runs CSK have scored in 12 overs. Tells you a story.

@Abhinandan, it's only a provisional squad, so there's hope!

Rashid Khan strikes

Beautiful ball. Spinning away, draws Raina out and has him stumped. Bairstow makes up for the tough dropped chance of Watson off the bowling of Sandeep Sharma. Yes, he's bowled it fuller and looked a different bowler.

49/1 after powerplay

That Sandeep Sharma over

4 fours, 1 six. Sandeep Sharma has conceded 22 runs in his first over and that's more than made up for du Plessis's wicket. Suresh Raina hit all the boundaries. Targeted with shortish deliveries at his body - and Sandeep isn't quick enough - Raina lays into it.

Clearly the run out hasn't worked how SRH would have wanted. Watson, at the other end, is looking good too.

Du Plessis falls early

And it's to a run out. So Hooda gets the hit right from mid-off and du Plessis's bat is just on the line. Touch and go. Clearly CSK have come out with the intention of quick singles, and for the right reasons, but it's bit them back hard. 3/1

SRH end up with 175

37 runs, 1 wicket in the last five overs. Bairstow got out for a duck but Warner and Manish Pandey, coming in at No 3 in his comeback game, launched SRH into a quick-fire 115 run stand. Timing, placement and quick ones/twos. Warner was stumped by Dhoni, after which the innings lost a bit of steam. Vijay Shankar wasn't exactly convincing in his 20-ball 26. Manish finishes with 83* off 49. Can CSK chase this? Check out this opinion piece on CSK's batting till we are back.

Warner falls after century stand

Brilliant stumping from Dhoni, Harbhajan with the wicket. Warner was beaten by the spin and had his back foot on the line, for like a second, and it's enough for Dhoni to take the bails off. End of a 115-run stand. Warner out for 57 off 45. 120/2

Fifty for Pandey and Warner

Pandey gets to a fifty even before Warner does. Gets there off 25 balls with a boundary through fine leg. Our commentator calls this "Manish Pandey's best IPL innings". Can't disagree.

Partnership = 100 off 61 ... and soon after, Warner gets to his fifty too. Off 39 balls.

91/1 after 10 overs

This is a different pitch they are playing on. Cracked yes but it was shinier than before, and Pandey & Warner seem to be making good use of it. Perfect timing, picking the gaps and launching the bowlers out of the park occasionally. Even Tahir conceded 10 runs in his first over.....

54/1 after the powerplay

Pandey gets his timing right

It's probably too early to comment - and I often get blown down on assumptions - but Manish Pandey is looking in sublime touch here. He has had a couple of boundaries and a six early in his innings, and looks good for many more. It's helping that David Warner is going strong from the other end, taking Harbhajan on and making things easier. The singles in this partnership, currently on 49* off 27, have been as good as the boundaries.

Bairstow falls early

Last match in IPL and Jonny Bairstow falls for a duck. Flashes at a quick and wide delivery, and edges it to the keeper. Dhoni always takes them. In walks Manish Pandey.... 5/1

Dhoni wins the toss...

CSK opt to bowl

Harbhajan Singh replaces Shardul Tahur for CSK. For SRH, Shakib al Hasan and Manish Pandey come in place of Kane Williamson and Shahbaz Nadeem.

Here are the teams:

Sunrisers Hyderabad: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow(w), Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar(c), Sandeep Sharma, K Khaleel Ahmed

Chennai Super Kings: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni(w/c), Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir

No Williamson tonight

The SRH captain has flown home for personal reasons, so the reins should be back with Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Will Kane Williamson return? Unlikely. We'll keep you updated on that.

"Nabi is bowling on the side pitch. He might be the man to replace KW," Pradeep informs from the ground.

Hello and welcome

Two teams, two very different journeys. Take their last game for example. The Chennai Super Kings faltered at the line, losing the game by 1 run. There was no line for Sunrisers Hyderabad in their last match, coasting to a nine-wicket win with little effort. Can Warner and Bairstow be the same force on Chennai's slow, low surface? It's a dry crack mosaic, Daren Ganga informs us. Bairstow was unbelievable at the Kotla earlier this season and he'll want to stamp his authority on Chepauk in his last match this IPL. Might not be so easy against CSK, who know a thing or two about winning.

Here's our match preview by Pradeep Krishnamurthy. He's also written on CSK's curious batting struggles.
