Chasing 140 for victory, Chennai were in a shambles at 62-6 when Du Plessis stepped up with his 42-ball blitz that made the two-time champions achieve their target with five balls to spare in the first qualifier in Mumbai.
The move backfired as Watson was dismissed for nought by Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the first over itself. There was a brief second-wicket partnership of 24 runs between Suresh Raina (22) and du Plessis, which was broken in the fourth over by Siddharth Kaul.

Much of the credit for the Orange Army's entry into the playoffs goes to the consistency of skipper Kane Williamson, who sits second in the leading run-getters' list with 661 runs and the bowling unit leg by paceman Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Afghan spinner Rashid Khan.

Chennai, attempting to make it to their seventh final in nine seasons that they have been part of T20 2018, struck another blow just past the Powerplay period.

Earlier, 2016 winners Hyderabad - who topped the league table in this edition - faltered after being put into bat first despite a 29-ball unbeaten 43 from Carlos Brathwaite. However, the CSK bowler had the last laugh, as he watched du Plessis tear into Brathwaite, plundering 20 runs in the 18 over bowled by him, which ultimately proved to be decisive.
Both Chennai and Hyderabad finished the league stage on 18 points, but the Kane Williamson-led side got their neck ahead to the No.1 spot with a superior net run-rate and Tuesday's victor will be guaranteed a place in the final at the same venue while the loser gets a second chance in the second qualifier in Kolkata on May 25.
