Alrighty then, looks like CSK will open with Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis. Rayudu will move down the order. SRH, on the other hand, have decided to stick with Goswami opening after his show against KKR.
TOSS – CSK opt to field. Watson comes in for Billings. SRH unchanged.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Shikhar Dhawan, Shreevats Goswami(w), Kane Williamson(c), Manish Pandey, Shakib Al Hasan, Yusuf Pathan, Carlos Brathwaite, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma
Chennai Super Kings: Ambati Rayudu, Shane Watson, Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis, MS Dhoni(w/c), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Harbhajan Singh, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Lungi Ngidi
More coming in from Vishaal, it’s likely CSK will bring in Watson for Billings while Hales likely to miss this clash too.
ICYMI – Supernovas beat Trailblazers earlier in the day in a last-ball thriller in the exhibition Women’s T20 game.
Goswami, Williamson and Watson informs Vishaal, our man at the venue.
@AkashS08 Which players are practising on the ground or having throwdowns

Both MS Dhoni & Suresh Raina are appearing in their 20th semifinal/playoff match – the most by any player in #IPL.
Both missed last 4 stage just once:
Dhoni – in 2016 (for RPS)
Raina – in 2017 (for GL)
But for #CSK appeared in all – nine out of nine!#CSKvSRH#SRHvCSK#IPL2018

Hello and welcome the live blog of the IPL 2018 first Qualifier between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad in Mumbai. SRH finished on top of the points table but have suffered three consecutive defeats leading up to the all-important clash. CSK too have been patchy and lost to Delhi Daredevils before bouncing back against Kings XI Punjab.
