Teams search for elusive first win
- CSK’s bowling woes remain
- Sunrisers Hyderabad ponder on opening combination
Chennai Super Kings come off the back of three successive losses and are in danger of repeating their 2020 season after their brilliant comeback last year to win the title. CSK’s bowling, though, appears very slim on paper but the fact that SRH have been ordinary gives them odds of 1.69 to win the game.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, meanwhile, have lost both games and have looked uninspiring with their batting. Their bowling, though, has shown glimpses of promise so far and they will bank on it to win against CSK, the odds of which stand at 2.14
CSK dominate head to head record
CSK have won 13 of the 17 head to head games against Sunrisers Hyderabad, giving them a strong head to head record. In 8 of the 10 games when batting first, Chennai Super Kings have registered wins.
Chennai Super Kings are looking to slowly come back from the dead and a game against SRH will suit them.Recommended Bet by 10CRIC
The battle this game will be decided by how the Sunrisers Hyderabad bowlers fare against Chennai Super Kings batters. The bowling attack has been impressive upfront and with CSK batting deep, early inroads will be of utmost importance.
Keep an eye on…
Ruturaj Gaikwad: Last year’s Orange Cap holder, Ruturaj Gaikwad has totalled just two runs across three matches and looks like a shadow of the player he was last year. If Gaikwad can get past the early powerplay overs, expect him to make an impact.
Nicholas Pooran: Nicholas Pooran is also riding on the same boat as Gaikwad. A slow start in the last two seasons has dented his reputation as one of the world’s best middle-order batters in T20.
TIP: Ruturaj Gaikwad has odds of 4.36 to be the top batter this game and with him due a big knock after three failures, we expect it to happen.
