Chennai's domination continues csk fourth continues win

M.S Dhoni could barely watch. Dale Steyn had unleashed a quick, short delivery at her husband, who had half-fended, half-pulled it high into the air. The ball swirled in the night sky for what seemed like an eternity – Ms. Dhoni manicured hands still barring her vision – and dropped down and out of a sloppy Amit Mishra hands at fine-leg.
Relief spread through Ms. Dhoni face like Indian ink on blotting paper. For Mishra, who had in the preceding 10minutes taken out Michael Hussey (45) and Murali Vijay (18) to get Hyderabad back into the match, had just let slip the biggest fish. Dhoni had scored naught then, and he went on to compile a perfectly-paced 37-ball 67, including 3 stunning sixes off Steyn - guiding Chennai super kings to another home win.
Late charge
if the first half of Dhawan’s knocks had been sparkling, the second was brutal. Dhawan and Reddy smashed 43 in just 16 balls, the left-hander particularly severe on the medium-pacer Rohit, while Reddy reserving special treatment for Bravo, who was carted for 16 in the last over.
59 runs in the last 4 overs brought Sunrisers in with a chance. But Hussey surety at the beginning of the chase and Chennai ability to turn it on at all the right moments especially at Chepauk saved them the night yet again.
Hyderabad- 159/6 (20)
S Dhawan -63*(45)

A Reddy -36*(16)
