Can Sunrisers challenge CSK at home?
- Chennai lost their last home game to Rajasthan.
- Spinners in focus on turning wicket.
A shock loss to Rajasthan Royals in Chepauk acted as a wake-up call for Chennai, who have been one of the most dominant sides at home in IPL history. They are, however, here after a win in Bangalore against RCB and will hope to beat Sunrisers. Chennai Super Kings have odds of 1.73 to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are second to last in the points table with just two wins in five games. It isn’t easy to pinpoint where it has all gone wrong for Hyderabad this year, but a start could be at the top where Mayank Agarwal has floundered. Sunrisers Hyderabad have odds of 2.07 to beat CSK.
Head-to-head record, CSK v SRH
The head-to-head record is heavily in favour of Chennai Super Kings. The MS Dhoni-led side has won 14 matches out of 19 completed games against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Incidentally, they have also won all three games against SRH at Chepauk, the venue for this match.
The toss can play a crucial role in the outcome of the match. The team that wins the toss will likely choose to bat first as setting a target can be difficult in IPL matches, especially at the Chepauk stadium in Chennai.
The Chennai Super Kings are the favorites to win the match, with a win probability of 60%. They have a strong record at home, and their spinners are likely to trouble the Sunrisers Hyderabad batters.
Considering the pitch conditions, the average score in this match is expected to be around 150-160 runs. However, both teams have the potential to score more if they play to their strengths.
Pitch and conditions
The pitch in Chepauk is known for assisting spinners, and both teams have quality spinners in their ranks. Expect the match to be a low-scoring affair with bowlers having a significant impact.
Players to keep an eye on…
SRH Predicted playing XI:
Mayank Agarwal, Harry Brook, Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram (c), Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Abhishek Sharma, Washington Sundar, Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, T Natarajan
CSK Predicted playing XI:
Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ajinkya Rahane, Shivam Dube, Ambati Rayudu, Moeen Ali, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Maheesh Theekshana, Tushar Deshpande, Matheesha Pathirana
Ruturaj Gaikwad: He has been in excellent form this season, scoring runs consistently at the top of the order for CSK. His performances will be crucial for CSK in this match as well.
Aiden Markram: He may not be the greatest player of spin, but Markram is the fulcrum in this line-up and will be a key player to tackle the middle overs bowled by the Chennai spinners.
