Bravo’s Super Kings beat Sunrisers
CHENNAI, India - Dwayne Bravo’s Chennai Super Kings recorded a close six wicket win over Darren Sammy’s Sunrisers Hyderabad in their Indian Premier League match on Thursday.
Sammy playing his first match for Sunrisers smashed a quickfire 19 and Bravo grabbed two wickets to help Chennai to its sixth win out of eight matches.
Riding on Shikhar Dhawan's scintillating knock of 63, Sunrisers Hyderabad recovered from early jolts to post a competitive 159 for six after electing to bat.
Sammy, the West Indies captain, hit two fours and a six before he was caught at backward point attempting to drill Bravo through the covers.
Bravo finished with two wickets for 37 from his four overs.
Chasing a tricky 160-run target, Chennai were in a spot of bother after a good start but skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored a superb unbeaten 67 to take them home with two balls to spare.
