DUBAI: MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad by 20 runs to end their two-match losing streak in IPL 2020 and jump to sixth spot on the points table.
The 20-run win was Chennai Super Kings’ 10th win against Sunrisers Hyderabad in 14 games.
With the victory, CSK also became the first team to win at least 10 matches against each of the other seven active teams in IPL.
SRH have now lost two matches in a row.
Following the win, MS Dhoni said batting was the one department that clicked in the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad and they wanted to ensure that the momentum was now sustained.
“Ultimately what really matters is you getting two points. What T20s have shown is that there are a few games that don’t go your way and then there are some that go your way even when you haven’t earned it. Today I felt we did a very good job even in the batting. There was some purpose with the bat and the batsmen assessed the situation very well,” Dhoni said.
