Chennai Super Kings' opener Faf du Plessis played a gem of an innings to lead his team to a two-wicket victory against SunRisers Hyderabad in the Qualifier 1 of the IPL 2018 at the Wankhede Stadium, in Mumbai last night.
Courtesy this win CSK entered an IPL final for the seventh time.
When the famed top-order CSK batsmen failed to perform with the bat, Du Plessis, who scored a fluent unbeaten 67, stayed till the end and made sure to bring his team home.
Chasing a modest target of 140, CSK were off to a forgettable start as they lost half their side for just 61 runs in 12 overs.
From there, Du Plessis staged a fairy-tale comeback and fittingly finished the match with a six off Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
