MS Dhoni: 'CSK has managed to keep its boys on track'

Chennai Supers Kings beat Sunrisers Hyderabad with five balls to spare at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai and book their place in the Indian Premier League final for the seventh time.

Chasing a modest target of 140, CSK were down in the dumps at 92 for seven before Du Plessis (67 off 42 balls) engineered a stunning comeback. "Faf played a lovely knock, and credit to the way they scrapped it", he said. It's not easy when you don't play a lot of games but I always say you need to train your mind as well. That's where the experience comes in.

"We have been a very good team over the past ten seasons, but it's more about the dressing room atmosphere. This is the best combination that we have got", skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni said after the win. Williamson, who has enjoyed a terrific tournament amassing more than 600 runs, tried to fix the innings in the company of the other opener Goswami and the duo put on 34 runs before Goswami fell to fast bowler Lungi Ngidi.

MS Dhoni failed to read a googly from Rashid Khan while Dwayne Bravo was done in by extra bounce edging one to Shikhar Dhawan at slips. "But somehow, we have managed to keep our boys on track". "Plus, they have a mystery bowler (Rashid)".

The Super Kings will be bidding for their third IPL title in the final against the victor of Eliminator 2 at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday, May 27.

Spokesman: Iran to stay in Syria as long as needed
He and his counterpart hailed the beginning of the "political process" in Syria amid an ongoing "fight against terrorism". 'Those who entered Syria without the permission of the Syrian government are the ones that must leave the country'.

"Good to win games like this". He went unused every other game, as they went about trying to find their ideal bowling combination. He also credited Shardul Thakur, who made a timely unbeaten 15 off just five balls, for hitting three fours against Sidharth Kaul that reduced the equation to six needed off the final over bowled by Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

"The game did swing our way, and bowlers were outstanding, but we didn't quite execute it like in the past", Williamson said. "When you're under pressure, sometimes, life gets a little bit tough", Williamson said at the post-match press conference last night.

"We certainly backed Carlos with his death bowling. We have been on the right side a number of those results throughout this league and today wasn't to be", he added. "Faf played a lovely knock, and credit to the way they scrapped it".

Meanwhile, Kolkata Knight Riders will face Rajasthan Royals for the Eliminator match on Wednesday; the winner of which will then face SRH in Qualifier 2 to vie for the second spot in the Final, to be held on Sunday, where the winner will face off with CSK to decide the winner of the 11th edition of the IPL.

The debate over whether a side's best bowler should bowl the penultimate over of a chase will go on, but Williamson stuck to a plan that has worked in the past. It's such a fine line. "With the bat, we could have taken a few smarter options in order to get maybe another 15 or 20 on that surface", he added.
