CSK vs SRH: MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings will lock horns with SunRisers Hyderabad in the 23rd match of the Indian Premier League 2021.
After a loss in their opening match, Chennai Super Kings have been on a roll, winning four back to back games, while SunRisers Hyderabad has managed just one win in five matches. Chennai cruised past RCB to displace them at the No.1 spot in their previous game, while SRH suffered a loss via in the Super Over after their tied game against Delhi Capitals.
The MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings has the best Net Run Rate (NRR) amongst all eight teams in the tournament and that is the reason why they are currently sitting at the top of the points table.
Moreover, they have also registered an outstanding victory by 69 runs in their previous game against Royal Challengers Bangalore. CSK all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja produced a miraculous performance in all three departments during the RCB clash.
Going into the match, we can not expect many changes in their playing XI. However, they might bring in Moeen Ali if he’s fit and available for this encounter.
Talking about SunRisers Hyderabad, this season has not been going in the way they have thought of. They have managed only one win out of the five matches they played so far. With only 2 points in their account, they are currently languishing at the bottom of the points table.
They lack proper middle-order batsmen in their side as apart from Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson, no other batsmen have impressed with the bat.
Their newest inclusion, Virat Singh has failed to deliver a good result with bat and hence Hyderabad is expected to bring back Manish Pandey in their playing XI while dropping Virat.
Talking about their head-to-head record, out of the 15 matches, Chennai Super Kings have won 11 while Sunrisers Hyderabad has 4 wins under their belt.
Although both teams are well-matched on paper, one might hand the advantage to Chennai Super Kings, given the plethora of stars in their batting line-up. However, the SunRisers Hyderabad boast of some big hitters, which should make for an entertaining clash on Tuesday.
