Triggered by Carlos Braithwaite's late blitz (43 off  29), Sunrisers Hyderabad reached 139 for 7 at the end of their 20 overs after being sent into bat first. Sunrisers lost Shikhar Dhawan on the very first ball of their innings. Kane Williamson then showed promise to step up by scoring 24 but was dismissed down the leg side off Shardul Thakur in a rather unfortunate manner. 

The Chennai bowlers then conjugated to dismiss the SRH middle order as Shakib Al Hasan, Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan failed to fire on the big night for the Sunrisers. 

Each of the Chennai bowlers accounted for wickets as Ravindra Jadeja finished with the best figures of them all (1 for 13) in his spell. 

Chennai now needs to score 140 to book a berth in the finale on Sunday. 

Here is how Twitter reacted to the SRH innings:
