On Tuesday, Sunrisers will once again hope that their bowling will do the trick against an in-form Chennai top order comprising the likes of Ambati Rayudu, who has been their standout performer with 586 runs and had in fact taken the game away with a scintillating hundred when the two teams last met.
Chennai Super Kings players celebrate after defeating Sunrisers Hyderabad in Qualifier 1 to make the final of IPL XI. Williamson was left to choose among Shakib Al Hasan, Sandeep Sharma and Carlos Brathwaite for the other over. But Shardul came in and hit some boundaries, and everything went our way. Brathwaite was particularly harsh on Thakur, scoring 20 runs off him in the last over of their innings.
With 43 needing off last three overs, Du Plessis, who opened the batting, launched into Carlos Brathwaite's 18th over smashing him for 20 runs which included two sixes and two fours.
The Blackcaps skipper scored 24 off 15 balls, before he was caught behind in his side's modest total of 139, which at one stage looked enough for victory before Du Plessis' heroics.
CSK needed 6 runs to win in the final over and du Plessis smacked a six off the first ball from Bhuvneshwar Kumar (1/14) to finish the match with 5 balls to spare and triggered massive celebrations in the CSK dugout.
Until du Plessis stepped in an authoritative manner to change the course of the match, the Sunrisers seam and spin attack, in particular, leg spinner Rashid Khan seemed to have sealed the fate of the match reducing CSK to 92 for seven.
In retrospect, the answer to that question is a cursory "duh", but du Plessis' selection was another case of Super Kings backing an out-of-form experienced player over an out-of-form youngster in Sam Billings. Plus, they have a mystery bowler. Rayudu was bowled for a golden duck the very next ball. Such was his bowling that even Dhoni had no answer to his googly and was clean bowled by him.

MS Dhoni (CSK Captain): I'm always happy whenever we win a game.
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.
Shardul Thakur: "I kept on telling my coaching staff that I can bat, and knew I could win the match fior the team if I got the chance". These are the best combinations we've got with the ball. To be mentally ready to step out and do the job and called upon and that's where his experience came in handy. The win is important, but it's more important about what we learned.
The New Zealand captain feathered a catch down leg-side ball off Shardul Thakur to rival captain Dhoni to leave Hyderabad reeling at 36 for 3 in the fifth over.
In a big playoff game, their out-and-out quick Lungi Ngidi did the business at the top, keeping it in that uncomfortable short-of-good-length region that makes him so hard to get away. Most times we'd back ourself to defend that. Faf played a handsome knock, and credit to the way they scrapped it.
"The game did swing our way, and bowlers were outstanding, but we didn't quite execute it like in the past", Williamson said.
