With three defeats in three matches, the Sunrisers Hyderabad were in need of a win that too by a big margin having lost by 40 and 39-run margins. However, they were up against the Chennai Super Kings who defeated them on as many as four instances in the previous edition. The home team had a bit of breath with MS Dhoni being rested and it did feel as CSK failed to finish on high. They ended with 132/5 by scoring only 52 runs in the last ten and over 30 in the last 30 deliveries.

Here are the lesser known stats recorded during a big defeat for the Chennai Super Kings:

When Warner hits well, SRH does well:

The Sunrisers Hyderabad managed to win only three of their 11 matches in the IPL against the Chennai Super Kings. Interestingly, David Warner scored fifty in all those three matches and stood as the player of the game. Warner struck a 45-ball 90 during the 2014 game in Rajkot where his knock helped SRH to chase down 186. He top-scored with a quick-fire 61 off 28 balls during a 22-run win at home in the 2015 season against the Super Kings. Warner was the player of the match for his 25-ball 50 on Wednesday.


CSK falter at death:

The Chennai Super Kings aggregated only 30 runs in the last five overs; the 3rd fewest they scored between 16th and 20th overs while batting first in an IPL game. The top two worst finishes of CSK were recorded in the first three seasons itself. During the 2009 edition, they scored 20/3 in the last five overs from 96/6 against Kings XI Punjab.

However, their total of 116/9 turned out to be a match-winning for CSK as KXIP finished with only 92/8 in their 20 overs. Later, during the 2010 season, CSK were cruising at 110/4 against the Deccan Chargers. However, the last five overs aggregated 28/4 as CSK finished with 138/8. The DC team chased down the target in the final over losing three wickets.

Jadeja costs CSK with the bat:

One of the reasons why CSK ended up with a below par total was Ravindra Jadeja’s misfired effort with the bat in the death overs. Jadeja ended up with an unbeaten 20-ball 10 with a strike-rate of 50 which is the joint 9th lowest by any player in an IPL inning of 20+ balls. This is also the joint 2nd lowest S/R in an unbeaten IPL inning of 20+ balls.

MS Dhoni scored 8* off 22 balls at an S/R of 36.36 during the 2016 game against KKR. The RPS innings was reduced to 17.4 overs due to a rain interruption. Saurabh Tiwary also had 50 S/R during his 26-ball 13* against CSK during the 2011 season. Tiwary’s knock came in the last league game of RCB where they successfully chased down 129 with two overs to spare.
