IPL Fantasy: Best XI to pick for the final

"If you ask most captains, they want players who move well on the field". Earlier, SRH Captain Kane Williamson (47) and batsman Yusuf Pathan (45 not out) contributed Sun Risers Hyderabad (SRH) to post a good target of 179.

Rayudu hammered 79 from 37 balls in a narrow four-run victory at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in late April, and then a maiden, unbeaten T20 hundred, from 62 deliveries, in the reverse fixture in Pune on May 13 as Chennai recorded an eight-wicket success. The Afghan slapped the ball to deep point and KKR's leg-spinner rushed ahead to grab the ball instead of standing on the ropes and the ball popped out of his hands for a six. SRH's victory on the virtual second semi-final remains dedicated to one man; Afghanistan's Rashi Khan, who batted, bowled and fielded like "a man possessed" while helping his team defeat KKR and book a place in Sunday's finals. CSK won achieved this in 18.3 overs.

Take a look at the below: The Tracking of Shane Watson's over to over performance in the final match of the 11th season. However, as he finished his first run, he slipped on the turn. After 7 overs, CSK stood at 51 for the loss of 1 wicket. Rashid was alert to the opportunity and ran him out at the strikers end. While CSK has been the favourite throughout the season, SRH proved themselves time and again.

He later admitted that the middle order was guilty of not taking the responsibility of seeing the team through.

Rashid then came back an over later to dismiss risky Andre Russell as the West Indian edged a googly straight to Shikhar Dhawan at the lone slip as KKR slipped to 118 for six.
