XtraTime Web Desk: Chennai Super Kings won a close match against home side Sunrisers Hyderabad after scoring 182 runs on board. And their young pacer Deepak Chahar’s brilliant opening spell of 3-1-7-3 today stunned the SRH’s top order at the start of their chase which led visitors to a win by just 4 runs.

Chahar started brilliantly after CSK recovered well to reach 182 for 3 after a demoralizing start. He began his bowling with a wicket-maiden, but his fellow teammate Shardul Thakur couldn’t hold the pressure who was hit for four fours by SRH captain Williamson. Chahar’s first victim was Ricky Bhui who replaced an injured Shikhar Dhawan. He was caught on first slip on the fifth ball of first over. After that Chahar bagged the big fish Manish Pandey, who went out on a second ball duck after he was caught at third man by Karn Sharma during the third over.

Away skipper MS Dhoni chose to continue with Chahar for his third over, which gave rich dividends as a mistimed stroke by Deepak Hooda was collected comfortably by Ravindra Jadeja.

Chahar’s opening spell saw left SRH in a crisis mode, as they could only reach 40 for three after six overs.
