Earlier in the evening, the Sunrisers lost Shikhar Dhawan to the first ball of the match; the left-hander threw his bat at one angled across him, but only managed to drag the ball back onto his stumps.
In the first qualifier of the 2018 season, Chennai pulled off a last-over thriller against the Kane Williamson-led Hyderabad, thanks to an incredible unbeaten 67-run knock by opener Faf du Plessis.
SRH will play the victor of Eliminator between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals on Wednesday at Eden Gardens in the second qualifier in order to make it to the final.

So we're getting wickets in the front, Deepak Chahar is also swinging the ball. However, it required a blitz from Shardul Thakur to get Chennai home. "I think we could've taken a few smart options to get a bit more on the board", said the New Zealand skipper. When the Afghan leggie had Dwayne Bravo (7) caught at slip in his next over, SRH knew the game was as good as over with CSK reduced to 61-5 in 12 overs. "They will have to step up in the final", he added.
While Super Kings stopped the aspirations of Kings XI Punjab by overcoming a hard start last night in their adopted home base of Pune, Sunrisers have been on a three-game losing run, having sealed their play-off spot with a victory on May 10 against Delhi Daredevils.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni was soaking in everything with his usual calm demeanour before attributing Chennai Super Kings' seventh IPLfinal appearance to "dressing room atmosphere", a far cry from the awe that was best summed up by a popular teammate's groovy tribute.
"We have been a very good team over the past ten seasons, but it's more about the dressing room atmosphere". It's hard to take him on.
Brief Scores:SRH 139/7 in 20 overs (Carlos Brathwaite 43*; Dwayne Bravo 2-25) lost to CSK 140/8 in 19.1 overs (Faf du Plessis 67*, Rashid Khan 2-11) by 2 wickets.
While all the top order and middle order batsmen of SRH failed to perform yesterday, their batting saw a great support by Carlos Brathwaite who smashed a quick 43 off 29 balls in the end.
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.
"The game did swing our way, and bowlers were outstanding, but we didn't quite execute it like in the past", Williamson said.
While Chennai Super Kings' batting has won them matches easily, Sunrisers bowling lineup has blown away opposition teams, even while defending a low total. Last night, when Dhoni won the toss and put the Hyderabad in, it was pretty much clear that these two will have to bat big if they had to put up a challenging total.
