Experience is worth its weight in gold and that's where Faf du Plessis made the difference with a match-winning knock to guide CSK to their seventh IPL final on Tuesday. "It's about constantly improving".

"Good to win games like this".

"Right from the first game we've used different bowlers in different ways to find out who is the best bowler at the end..." He found able support in Shardul Thakur (15*) and the duo took CSK to their seventh IPL final.

Captain Kane Williamson (24) and Yusuf Pathan (24) were the other notable contributors with the bat.

Hyderabad captain Kane Williamson, lone foreigner to lead an IPL team this season, hit four crisp boundaries in his 24 but they kept losing wickets at regular intervals.

"It was a decent wicket and we would have liked 20 more (runs)", said Williamson. They bowled very well, and there was a bit in it for the fast bowlers.

Dhawan, the second-highest scorer for Hyderabad with 437 runs, was played on off Deepak Chahar of the first delivery of the match.
