Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) defeated Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the fourteenth match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.


Chasing 165, CSK started dreadfully as they lost their four wickets for just 42 after 8.2 overs. First, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1/20) dismissed Shane Watson for 1, then T Natarajan (2/43) ended the innings of Ambati Rayudu, who scored 8 runs.

Soon, Faf du Plessis (22), who was looking in good touch, met a run-out. As if the trouble wasn’t enough, Kedar Jadhav (3) became the victim of youngster Abdul Samad (1/41).


Ravindra Jadeja (50) and MS Dhoni (47 not out) added a 72-run stand for the fifth wicket, but it was too late for the ‘Yellow Army’ to chase down the target.

In the end, CSK could only reach 157/5, losing the game by seven runs.

Priyam Garg takes Sunrisers to a respectable total

The 19-year-old batsman played some explosive shots to score his maiden IPL half-century. Garg reached his fifty from just 23 deliveries. He remained unbeaten on 51 including 6 fours and a six.

Apart from Garg, Abhishek Sharma contributed with 31 off 24 balls as SRH posted 164/5 in their allotted 20 overs.
