Faf du Plessis, playing only his fifth match of the season, repaid his captain's faith by playing an innings MS Dhoni himself will be proud of.

Chasing 140 to make their seventh final in nine attempts, Chennai Super Kings were reduced to 62 for 6 by the excellent Sunrisers Hyderabad bowling, but du Plessis took the game deep, induced a few errors from the opposition captain, and capitalized on small mistakes here and there.

Carlos Brathwaite bowled the 18th over, with 43 to get, ahead of Sandeep Sharma and Shakib Al Hasan. Du Plessis hit that over for four, six and four to give an excellent match its final momentum shift.

Scorecard:

SRH - 139 for 7

Kane Williamson 24, Carlos Brathwaite 43*
Dwayne Bravo 2 for 25

CSK - 140 for 8 in 19.1 overs

Faf du Plessis 67*
