Sunrisers meet Chennai in clash of bowling teams
Chennai Super Kings have had a terrible start to their IPL 2020 campaign with two back-to-back losses whole chasing down targets. After a week’s break the MS Dhoni-led unit will take on David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad with the knowledge that they themselves haven’t been in the best of form. CSK’s odds of beating Sunrisers rest at a superior 1.80.
Sunrisers Hyderabad produced an impressive showing against Delhi Capitals the other night to notch up their first win in the season, but in general, they have been below par too. The major takeaway for them was the form of their bowling group and it will take another good performance from them to fight the odds of 2.00 that they have to beat CSK.

Chennai have a supremely dominant record against Sunrisers
The thing with IPL is that most franchises are close to each other in terms of quality in the teams they have. As such, head to head records are mostly fairly equal. In this case, though, SRH have a rather poor record against Chennai Super Kings over the years. In 13 matches, SRH have won only three with Chennai notching up 10 victories.
RECOMMENDED BET: CSK have won five of the last six matches between these teams and have odds of 1.80 to notch up another win.
Chennai have beaten Sunrisers Hyderabad five times in the last six times these teams met. This includes a 4-0 drubbing in 2018. This is just the kind of encounter this Chennai line-up needs this IPL to resurrect their campaign.
Keep an eye on…
MS Dhoni: A glimpse of vintage MS Dhoni was visible in Chennai’s previous game and the veteran Indian keeper batsman will be eager to prove a point once again. The make up of the Sunrisers bowling attack means that Dhoni will be a key player to tackle their death bowling.
TIP: The incredible consistency of David Warner, the highest run-scorer in IPL since 2014, gives him odds of 7.00 to win the Man of the Match award in this game.
Warner and Bairstow: One of the most dangerous opening pairs in the competition, David Warner and Jonny Bairstow have been subdued this IPL. The CSK bowling attack, especially in the powerplays has been all over the place and it might just be the opening Warner and Bairstow need to get going.
