Dwayne Bravo Pays 'Dance' Tribute to MS Dhoni in Dressing Room

Suresh Raina has 4,953 runs in the Indian Premier League compared to Virat Kohli’s 4,948 runs in 163 matches

However, it was South African Faf du Plessis who bailed his side out of the trouble with an unbeaten 67.

His masterclass floored SRH in Qualifier 1 as CSK snatched victory from the jaws of defeat to reach their seventh IPL final.

"The player today who hasn't played that much came out on a bigger stage of the tournament today and for Faf to do that is testament to his skills set and his mindset as well". Yesterday, I was just reflecting on my past games, and took some confidence from that mentally.

All-rounder Dwayne Bravo celebrated the victory with a dance in the dressing room.

Chennai Super Kings have scripted history yet again as they defeated Sunrisers Hyderabad in Qualifier 1 in Mumbai on Tuesday.

Trump tells North Korea that denuclearization will preserve its security
Trump said North Korean officials are discussing logistical details about the meeting with the U.S. "as if nothing happened ". Trump said he was not pursuing the " Libya model" in getting North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program.

However, thanks to Faf du Plessis' 42-ball 67 and some late onslaught from Shardul Thakur (15 off 5), CSK went on to win with two wickets in hand and seal their place in the final. Rashid was a real handful, so just happy to cross the line.

Du Plessis hit five fours and four sixes to propel Chennai, who returned this season after a two-year corruption ban along with Rajasthan Royals, into the final. After Siddarth Kaul had removed Raina and Rayudu off successive balls, Rashid Khan stormed through the gate of Dhoni with a ripping wrong'un. He was really really tough to play on that wicket. Rashid, who was called on to bowl the 8th, 10th, 12th and 16th over, castled Dhoni neck and crop with a googly and then had the wicket of Dwayne Bravo. Our plan was to get through him.

"It was a decent wicket and we would have liked 20 more (runs)", said Williamson. The in-form Ambati Rayudu was cleaned up by a flawless yorker the very next ball, and four overs later MS Dhoni was castled by a Rashid Khan googly.

"It was unbelievable - Faf du Plessis finding his inner MS Dhoni there at the backend, batting all the way through, taking it right to the end".

On Tuesday night, CSK restricted SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) to 139-7 before finding themselves in a precarious position at 62-6. "The bowlers were fantastic, we did back our death bowling to close the game from there, but that's not where we want to correct ourselves, I think with the bat we could've taken some better options in the order to get maybe another 15 or 20 runs".

Officer hailed for confronting gunman at high school
Officer Mark Dallas shot and injured the 19-year-old gunman at Dixon High School and took him into custody Wednesday morning. Officials do not believe the shooter was a current student. "We are forever indebted to him for his service and his bravery".

Yusuf Pathan contributed 24, but Carlos Brathwaite's 43 not out from 29 balls helped Hyderabad post 139-7, although it was not enough in the end.

But Hyderabad suffered the first blow off the very first ball of the match when Dhawan cut one on to the stumps off Deepak Chahar.

Williamson, in red-hot form in the season, produced three hits to the fence off the last three balls in the same over, an exquisite extra cover drive being the pick.

Captain Kane Williamson (24) also departed as he gloved Thakur's short pitched delivery to Dhoni behind the wickets in the fifth over.

CSK struck another blow just past the Powerplay period.

Russian Federation defends right to build Crimean Bridge
Many didn't believe these plans were possible", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. "All is ready!", Mostik posted. The road bridge is opening ahead of schedule as it was due to be completed in December. "Putin initiated this project himself.

In the next three overs, Chennai failed to score a single boundary and also saw Bravo and Ravindra Jadeja make the long walks back to the pavilion as du Plessis remained stranded on the other end looking at more than half the team sitting dejectedly in the dugout.
