Chennai Super Kings continue to remain at the bottom of the points table as they suffered a 7-run defeat in the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad on Friday. Batting first, the Sunrisers collapsed to 69/4 by the start of 11th over but Priyam Garg made most of the opportunity smashing an unbeaten 26-ball 51 as SRH finished with 164/5. The CSK team never looked like chasing the target due to the wickets they lost regularly early on. They reached 71/4 by end of the 14th over but some late striking by Jadeja and Dhoni enabled them to reach 157/5.

Priyam Garg’s record fifty:

23Priyam Garg’s 23-ball fifty is now the joint-fastest in the IPL by an Indian for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Yuvraj Singh also scored a 23-ball fifty in the 2017 season opener for the Sunrisers. These two are the only IPL fifties by Indians coming in less than 24 balls for SRH while the overseas players have managed nine of them including seven by David Warner.

Earlier in 2018, Manish Pandey scored an unbeaten 57 against Kings XI Punjab while batting at five.
