commentary

Holy hell CHN, doing it in the league stages is one thing, but in the playoffs. Just wow! Can they do it one more time though? They can now sit back and watch all the drama unfold as the remaining three teams scramble to set up a date with them on Sunday. That's all from us. I've been Sagar Chawla bringing you the coverage along with Akshay Maanay, Raju Peethala, Pradeep Krishnamurthy, Abhinand Raghavendran and our scorer Shashikant Singh. Bye!

CHN's great escapes in last three overs:
47 off 2.5 vs MUM, Wankhede
41 off 2.5 vs KOL, Chennai
44 off 2.4 vs BLR, Bengaluru
43 off 2.1 vs HYD, Wankhede

Faf du Plessis, MoM: It's nice to make a contribution tonight. Haven't played much. Last night when I was preparing, I reflected on the games I've played here in Mumbai. It's a stadium I've enjoyed playing. Took confidence from that. I just got in the change room now and said, how did we win that game. It felt just a little out of reach. It was great that guys came in and hit a few boundaries at the end. Everything went our way towards the end on a wicket which wasn't easy to bat on. Rashid Khan was a handful on that wicket. He was really really tough to play on that wicket. It stopped a bit on that wicket and he bowls quickly. It's hard to take him on. Our plan was to get through him. And see which bowler to take down on the night. Towards the end I was just trying to place a few.

(2/2) That's where experience counts (talking about du Plessis). It's not easy not to get games during the T20 League. I've always felt you need to train the mind more than the body. Injuries can happen anytime. That's where experience counts. He's been brilliant. He batted really well. Hopefully he can continue this in the final also. We've been a very good team and it reflects when it comes to the T20 League. It reflects the dressing room atmosphere we've been able to create. It's not possible without that. Credit goes to management, support staff and players. Even if one of them is lacking you can't have a good dressing room atmosphere. If atmosphere is not great, it becomes difficult to perform. Somehow we've been able to push the players into thinking about what's good for the team.

Dhoni, CHN captain: (1/2) I'm always happy whenever we win a game. Process is more important. Being in top two gives more liberty of having one more game. If we would've lost this game, still you give yourself a second chance. They bowled very well. There was a bit for the fast bowlers initially. Bhuvi bowled really well and he was backed up well by Rashid. We kept losing wickets, for that reason also we had to keep pushing ourselves to get the number of runs needed. We lost three-four in the middle and that put pressure. Obviously they have a mystery bowler. Good to win games like this. But what's important is to learn out of this game. It's about constantly improving. This is the best combination that we have got. And right from the first game we've used different bowlers in different ways to find out who is the best bowler at the end. You have to keep shuffling them to see who can see a good job for me. They will get hit at some point of time. These are the bowlers, and our bowlers, who were playing this game. They will have to step up in the final.

Shardul Thakur: I thought it was good and it was important for me to give some runs and so that Faf could finish it . He (Faf) was set. I kept saying to the coaches that I can bat. Last year, I got out twice while playing for Pune, when I had an opportunity. This time I ensured I finished the game. MS said 'pick the balls and react'. Faf and I discussed what to do. He was saying me to take the single, but it worked the other way around. We kept getting the boundaries. That's (entertainment) what people want. In the end, they got some. The belief was always there. If you have to win, you need to have the belief.

Kane Williamson, HYD captain: Trip to Kolkata now should be interesting. It was a good game of cricket, but if we are honest with ourselves, we were a few runs short with the bat. It was definitely not a 140 wicket. It was a decent wicket and we would have liked 20 more. Saying that, the game swung back our way, the bowlers were outstanding only didn't execute (in the death) as we have in the past. Now we have to do some hard work in Kolkata to come back here. We certainly back our death bowlers in that position. Most times we would defend that total, but credit to the CHN lower order. They bat a long way down and they kept us under pressure. It is rough being on the other side of close ones, but we have been on the right side a number of times this year. It is important that we learn from this experience. Yeah they do (bat deep). The odd nick and the odd this and that in a low scoring game those count for a lot. At the same time Faf played a beautiful knock for them. We are getting closer (to beating CHN). It would be great to be back here, but one game at a time.

What a see-sawing match though. HYD were highly subdued with the bat until Carlos Brathwaite's blitz took them to a score they could work with. And after three disappointing games, their bowlers found their mojo back on a Wankhede surface they very much would like to carry everywhere. The extra fizz off the deck made Rashid Khan a menace, after the movement at the start had CHN tottering. At 62/6, with 79 needed off 45, the Hyderabad would have backed themselves. But geez we were in for something special from du Plessis. CHN have now beaten HYD three times out of three this season.

22:45 Local Time, 17:15 GMT, 22:45 IST: HYD players are quite stunned as CHN pull off another jailbreak. My word that was a sensational finish, with Faf du Plessis engineering a heroic turnaround to take Chennai into the final. Shardul Thakur's edges were no less heroic. But let's just focus on du Plessis here. A player sparingly used in the league stages, whose form was blowing hot and cold, and here he comes in the playoffs to win it almost single-handedly for the team. That's what match-winners are.

19.1
6
Bhuvneshwar to du Plessis, SIX, Faf du Plessis, you champion! He takes just one ball to do it. Slower ball on a length, whacks it back down the ground to smash those LED boards before raising his arms and letting out a huge roar

Bhuvneshwar Kumar [3.0-0-8-1] is back into the attack

It's just six to get in the final over. But it's the best death bowler of the T20 League. If someone can, Bhuvi can

18.6
4
S Kaul to SN Thakur, FOUR, Shardul Thakur, are you kidding me! He's making up for all the punishment he took from the hands of Carlos Brathwaite. Wankhede erupts. Full ball at the stumps, drilled back past the bowler's head. Swirls away into the fence
18.5
2
S Kaul to SN Thakur, 2 runs, full ball on off, Thakur barrels it with a big back-lift straight down the ground. There's a bit of ground for Dhawan to cover to his right from long-off, and that's enough for du Plessis to put his head down and head back to the non-striker's end. What a finish this
18.4
1
S Kaul to du Plessis, 1 run, this is cool batting from Faf du Plessis. Knocks this length ball to cover for one
18.4
1
S Kaul to du Plessis, wide, misfires with this leg-cutter. It's well wide of off. Faf keeps his mind and doesn't go chasing after it

Oh look at that. Look at the burden on Kaul's shoulders. He has to spend a moment on his haunches to compose himself

18.3
1
S Kaul to SN Thakur, 1 run, full ball, driven hard down to long-off
18.2
4
S Kaul to SN Thakur, FOUR, would you believe it? Another french cut for four. Kaul doesn't know how to react. Back of length, cramps Thakur up and takes the inside edge to the fine leg boundary
18.1
4
S Kaul to SN Thakur, FOUR, forget turning the strike over, Thakur has squirted this for four. It's running CHN's way. Kaul's so terribly unlucky though. Beaut of a yorker on off, Thakur gets it right off the toe-end, and with third man up, it runs away

That over has brought CHN right back in this. Now for Thakur to turn the strike over. Lots of tension on everyone's faces.

17.6
4
Brathwaite to du Plessis, FOUR, he's got the boundary. Full ball outside off, the field is set in a way that there are three fielders to the left of point in a ring, and sweeper cover is pretty straight. So Faf carves this full ball square enough of Rashid in the deep to beat him. What a knock he's playing

What will Faf do now? Go for the boundary or look to keep strike?

Shardul Thakur, right handed bat, comes to the crease

17.5
1
Brathwaite to du Plessis, out Harbhajan Run Out!! 1 run completed. This is stunning bit of work in the outfield from Rashid Khan. Faf had absolutely drilled this drive to his right at deep extra cover. But not only does he race across and slide to stop it, he also fires in a rocket throw back to Brathwaite to catch Harbhajan well short. Harbhajan run out (Rashid Khan/Brathwaite) 2(9)

Brathwaite to du Plessis, THAT'S OUT!! Run Out!!

17.4
4
Brathwaite to du Plessis, FOUR, four more. Just the over CHN need. Leg-cutter on a back of length, and although he's deceived by it, he's able to drag it away past short fine leg
17.3
6
Brathwaite to du Plessis, SIX, oh what a shot. He's picked the bones out of it. An 87-metre six pumps up the CHN dugout while raising the fifty for the South African player. Brathwaite offers it in the slot again, and gets smoked away
17.2
4
Brathwaite to du Plessis, FOUR, he's successfully targetted extra cover again. Full ball outside off, pretty short of the blockhole, so Faf has enough space to get it over Williamson's head
17.1
1
Brathwaite to Harbhajan, 1 run, leg-cutter on a back of length, Harbhajan goes hard flat-batted but hits it limply down the ground to long-on

Carlos Brathwaite [2.0-0-11-0] is back into the attack

Getting difficult now. The required rate is over 14 which is not easy generally, but even more difficult against the likes of Bhuvneshwar. This will have to be the over. It's Brathwaite. He has to disappear

16.6
1
S Kaul to Harbhajan, 1 run, back of a length delivery outside off, 116kph, Harbhajan clips it away to deep backward square. He will keep strike. Not sure if CHN want that
16.5
0
S Kaul to Harbhajan, no run, nails the yorker outside off, Harbhajan tries slicing it down to third man but fails
16.4
1
S Kaul to du Plessis, 1 run, can't get it through. Uses his feet to convert this intended yorker into a low full toss. He had width at his disposal too, but he carves this in the vicinity of Williamson at extra cover
16.3
1
S Kaul to Harbhajan, leg byes, 1 run, zips on from a length on middle and leg, beats Harbhajan's flick and deflects off his pad into the on-side
16.2
0
S Kaul to Harbhajan, no run, knuckle ball on a good length outside off, Harbhajan flashes a drive at it and misses. Bit of spongy bounce there which took it over the bat
16.1
1
S Kaul to du Plessis, 1 run, lobbed right off the toe-end from Faf, who dropped his head as soon as he hit it. But luckily, the ball drops well in front of Brathwaite at long-on

Siddarth Kaul [2.0-0-12-2] is back into the attack

Gloomy faces of CHN fans, which pretty much comprise the whole of Wankhede tonight. 47 in 24.

15.6
0
Rashid Khan to Harbhajan, no run, pretty much clueless. Pokes at a length ball away from the body, it's the leg-break from Rashid which turns away at a quick pace and beats the outside edge. Rashid finishes with extraordinary figures of 2/11
15.5
0
Rashid Khan to Harbhajan, no run, length ball sliding on from a length outside off, Harbhajan lunges forward and defends back
15.4
0
Rashid Khan to Harbhajan, no run, pretty full just outside off, squeezed out to cover
15.3
0
Rashid Khan to Harbhajan, no run, lunges out to meet this length ball, doesn't pick it. It's a googly which spins in and takes a thick inside edge to short fine leg
15.2
1
Rashid Khan to du Plessis, 1 run, full and quick on off, Faf goes for the flick and the ball goes off his leading edge to long-off
15.1
0
Rashid Khan to du Plessis, no run, and this call, if upheld, could seal the game. Faf given out LBW to a googly from Rashid. He's gone for the review. This is shady, as the ball seems to be a bit leg-sidish. You can see middle and off stump when it hit the pad. Williamson has already got his fielders in position, so he doesn't seem very confident. Yes, as expected, it's missing leg stump. Faf survives. CHN still alive, if only just

Rashid Khan [3.0-0-10-2] is back into the attack

Harbhajan Singh, right handed bat, comes to the crease

14.6

Sandeep Sharma to Chahar, out Caught by Brathwaite!! Has Brathwaite taken this? It will be a sensational catch if he has. Tom Moody gets on his feet in the dugout. Big moment. The soft signal is out. And it doesn't take long for the third umpire to uphold the onfield call. Dhoni looks a bit miffed as he crosses his arms. Full ball, not an easy length to get under, which is why Chahar's loft hardly finds much elevation. It's a flat hit in front of long-on, with the ball dipping on Brathwaite and making him the second favourite. But he charges in while covering great ground and dives forward to get his fingers underneath. What a game he's had. Chahar c Brathwaite b Sandeep Sharma 10(6) [6s-1]

Sandeep Sharma to Chahar, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

"CHN CHN" chants

14.5
1
Sandeep Sharma to du Plessis, 1 run, squared up by the knuckle ball, pokes it off the leading edge to cover
14.4
4
Sandeep Sharma to du Plessis, FOUR, carved away over extra-cover, and all of a sudden CHN have the momentum. Full ball outside off, Faf somehow manages to get under it and lifts it over Williamson in the infield
14.3
0
Sandeep Sharma to du Plessis, no run, slower back of length delivery outside off, stops on Faf's attempted back-foot cover drive. He inside-edges it back down the pitch to Sandeep's right
14.2
1
Sandeep Sharma to Chahar, 1 run, yorker on off, rushes his bat down and jams it to long-off. Excellent response from Sandeep
14.1
6
Sandeep Sharma to Chahar, SIX, and Chahar goes bang. Well, not quite a BANG, but bang enough. Off-pace back of length delivery, he swipes cross-batted and clears the mid-wicket boundary. It came off the toe-end, but these are short boundary

Timeout! This isn't over folks. Don't rule CHN out yet. Faf du Plessis has hung around, and there's Deepak Chahar too. Only a couple of nights back, he was giving it a fair tonk. One more over of Rashid Khan to deal with though

13.6
6
Shakib to du Plessis, SIX, straight down the ground from Faf, clean strike. He's got to pick his bowlers now, and he's got 10 off two balls from Shakib. Swings through the line of the full ball and sends it soaring over long-on
13.5
4
Shakib to du Plessis, FOUR, backs away against this arm-ball and hacks it through mid-wicket. He's got it between long-on and deep mid-wicket, and despite a committed dive from Manish Pandey, he can only parry the ball into the ropes
13.4
1
Shakib to Chahar, 1 run, pulls the length back around off and allows the ball to grip a touch more. Chahar works it softly in front of long-on. Shakib gives chase himself and puts in a desperate, and rather unnecessary, dive
13.3
1
Shakib to du Plessis, 1 run, full on middle and leg, worked down to long-on
13.2
1

12.5
2
Sandeep Sharma to du Plessis, 2 runs, slower length ball outside off, picked away softly through the vacant mid-wicket region. The deftness of the shot gave Faf enough time to hare back for the second
12.4
1
Sandeep Sharma to Chahar, 1 run, slower ball, Chahar pats it in front of backward point and scampers to the other end. Gets in the way of the throw from the fielder

Deepak Chahar, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Sandeep Sharma to Jadeja, out Caught&Bowled!! Not anymore he's not. Dear me. He's chipped this knuckle ball straight back to Sandeep, completely bamboozled. Beautifully disguised on a good length around middle, Jadeja tries working it through the on-side but he's way too early into the shot. HYD are turning a defence of 140 into a one-sided affair. Quite unbelievable turn of events here. Jadeja c and b Sandeep Sharma 3(5)

Sandeep Sharma to Jadeja, THAT'S OUT!! Caught&Bowled!!

CHN have pretty much stalled. They need someone to counterattack, and maybe Jadeja's the man for it

Sandeep Sharma to Jadeja, no run, back of a length delivery on off, blocked to short cover
12.1
1
Sandeep Sharma to du Plessis, 1 run, slower length ball on middle, glanced to short fine leg. Picked that variation late, did Faf, but adjusted well

Sandeep Sharma [1.0-0-13-0] is back into the attack

11.6
0
Rashid Khan to Jadeja, no run, this is tough. Jadeja's feet are stuck at the crease due to Rashid's quickness through the air, but despite being back to it, he still doesn't have the time to cope. The leg-break hurries onto him from a back of length, cramps him up and hits him high on the pad
11.5
1
Rashid Khan to du Plessis, 1 run, slightly on the shorter side, cut away off the back foot to sweeper cover

Rashid Khan to Jadeja, 1 run, picks the googly and steers it with the turn through the covers

Rashid Khan to Jadeja, 2 runs, 94.2kph, full on middle and leg and turning in, Jadeja just gets his bat across in time to work it through square leg

Ravindra Jadeja, left handed bat, comes to the crease

Rashid Khan to Dwayne Bravo, out Caught by Dhawan!! Pouched at slip by Dhawan. Rashid Khan jogs away with his arms spread. Oh he loves bowling at the Wankhede. The extra fizz off the surface works wonders for him. Pushed through on a good length outside off, Bravo wafts at it and perishes to the turn and bite. HYD on a roll. Dwayne Bravo c Dhawan b Rashid Khan 7(11)

Rashid Khan to Dwayne Bravo, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

11.1
1
Rashid Khan to du Plessis, 1 run, pushed through the air on a back of length, Faf has enough time to read it off the pitch. He's on the back foot as he clips the leg-break through mid-wicket

Rashid back on the field and will continue. Change of gloves for Faf

Shakib to du Plessis, 1 run, skidding on from a length, Faf goes deep in the crease and shovels it with the angle to deep mid-wicket

Shakib to Dwayne Bravo, 2 runs, tossed up at the stumps, whipped wide of the fielder at deep mid-wicket

Shakib Al Hasan, left-arm orthodox, comes into the attack

Now here's something. Rashid Khan looks to be a bit sick, and is walking off. Don't think it's anything major. Shakib brought on

9.6
1
Rashid Khan to Dwayne Bravo, 1 run, another wrong 'un and this nearly cleaned up Bravo, he didn't spot it one bit - went for his flamboyant on the up cover drive, didn't get anywhere close to the pitch of the ball, lucky that the fat inside edge rolled past his leg-stump

9.1
0
Rashid Khan to du Plessis, no run, tossed up on off, du Plessis works it to the left of mid-wicket where Manish gets across quickly to make the stop

Time for the strategic break. It's been a brilliant defence of 139 so far from HYD, Watson fell in the first over, Raina was looking so good, but the demons in his mind caused his downfall, Rayudu got a peach first-ball and then MS was done in by a Rashid special. du Plessis has hardly got strike and he has looked very scratchy, but he now needs to play a big innings if CHN are to avoid a Kolkata detour

8.6
0
Brathwaite to Dwayne Bravo, no run, appeal for LBW and HYD will not review. Think there was an inside edge, looked high to the naked eye as well. On a good length and angling back into the right-hander, Bravo was shuffling across on the flick and took one on his pads

Brathwaite to du Plessis, 1 run, short of a length and well outside off, cracked away square on the off-side for a single
8.4

Brathwaite to du Plessis, SIX, risky but much needed for du Plessis, banged in short and just outside off, du Plessis was on the back-foot, didn't get hold of the cross-batted slap, just about has enough to clear the man at long leg

Rashid Khan to Dhoni, out Bowled!! That's big, that's huge and that might have just won this match for HYD. The wrong 'un from Rashid and MS didn't read it, he was lunging forward, was perhaps looking to push it too square, the ball grazed the inside edge, went through the huge gap between bat and pad and disturbed the stumps. Rashid is thrilled to bits, so are the HYD camp. They are defending a modest target with elan once again. Dhoni b Rashid Khan 9(18) [4s-1]

Rashid Khan to Dhoni, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!

5.3
2
S Kaul to Dhoni, 2 runs, streaky, Dhoni is living on the edge here, comes down the track on the drive, doesn't get close to the ball and the inside edge went perilously past the leg-stump, back for the second run

S Kaul to Dhoni, no run, MS is taking his time to settle, on a good length and in that channel outside off, left alone

S Kaul to du Plessis, 1 run, good stop from Shakib at mid-wicket, saved three runs for his team. Too straight from Kaul and du Plessis whipped it to the left of mid-wicket. The ball is deflected towards the path of mid-on and the batsmen sneak in a run

S Kaul to Rayudu, out Bowled!! Two in two for Kaul and HYD are back in business. Not sure what Rayudu could have done here, this is simply sensational from Siddarth, the slower ball yorker, moved away off the seam as well, opened up Rayudu completely as he played for the original angle. The ball curved in and then shaped away beautifully, Rayudu was through with the shot, the ball gently seamed past the closed bat face and crashed into the base of middle and off-stump. A duck for Rayudu and Siddarth is on a hat-trick. Rayudu b S Kaul 0(1)

S Kaul to Rayudu, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!

Ambati Rayudu, right handed bat, comes to the crease

S Kaul to Raina, out Bowled!! Oh dear! The fear of the short ball has consumed Raina once again, a nice little cameo, but nothing else. He pre-empted that Kaul would bowl a short ball and shuffled across his stumps, in the process, he left the leg-stump exposed. This wasn't a short ball, just a length delivery that was heading towards the leg-stump, once Raina clipped and missed, it was curtains for the left-hander. Raina b S Kaul 22(13) [4s-4]

S Kaul to Raina, THAT'S OUT!! Bowled!!

S Kaul to Raina, FOUR, lovely, sublime timing from Raina, full toss outside off, he waits on it, uses the pace on the ball, plays with an open face and guides it behind square on the off-side, beats Manish and runs away to the fence

S Kaul to Raina, no run, good diving stop at backward point, think it was Manish, saved a run for his team. This was a yorker length delivery outside off, Raina was backing away and had to get his bat down as he jammed it behind square on the off-side

First change and Kaul replaces Sandeep. He has a leg gully in place

Sandeep Sharma to Raina, FOUR, lovely shot, too full and too wide from Sandeep, he hasn't found the right line and length so far. Raina leans into the drive, didn't get close to the ball, as a result it was in the air for a long time, but he found the gap to the left of cover and it scooted away

Bhuvneshwar to Watson, out Caught by Goswami!! Edged and caught! The perfect start from Bhuvneshwar, an absolute peach and he has gobbled Watson up. Fraction short in length and a hint of shape away from outside off, made Watson feel for the ball, found the tiniest of bat and Goswami does the rest. Defending 140, they needed early wickets and Bhuvneshwar has just got them one. Watson c Goswami b Bhuvneshwar 0(5)
