The chase for Hyderabad never took off. Opener Jonny Bairstow (23) tried to hold the innings together. But it was then left to Kane Williamson (57: 39b, 7x4) to revive the chase. However no support came through for Williamson from any of the younger batsmen and the chase was over. In the end Hyderabad ended at 147 for eight in their 20 overs. The best bowlers for Chennai were Karn Sharma (2-37) and Dwayne Bravo (2-25).
