The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League commenced on March 26, and now it is heading towards the 17th encounter of the tournament phase. This game will be played between Chennai Super Kings & Sunrisers Hyderabad, and the venue for it will be DY Patil Cricket Stadium, Navi Mumbai. Both teams have lost their previous encounters; SRH has been crushed by Lucknow Supergiants, while Chennai has faced their third defeat in a row against Punjab. The Batting units of both teams are looking a serious mess for themselves in the preceding matches. The most important thing for CSK is the out-of-form Ruturaj Gaikwad, who is not giving the best start in the beginning.
On the other hand, the comprehensive batting line-up of Hyderabad has spelled like a pack of cards in this season of IPL. Nicholas Pooran, who has been in a tremendous touch in the last T20 series against India, is suddenly playing the game like a naive domestic cricketer. Also, the absence of Rashid Khan’s hold over the complete bowling department is missing in SRH. But, in this game, the drought of victory will be over for one of both sides, so here are a few predictions & fantasy tips for this game.
CSK vs SRH: Match Predictions
As the game will proceed at the DY Patil venue, the turn & bounce will be intrinsic stuff for the bowlers. Especially the spinners like Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, and Moeen Ali, which could prove vital for their sides. While the expensive Umran Malik may get replaced by the majestic pacer Kartik Tyagi. In the last 11 games at this venue, teams who have batted second have won 8 matches, while the batting first side has only succeeded in 3 matches. The inescapable factor of dew is the biggest measure behind this scenario.
CSK vs SRH: Probable Playing XIs
The inclusion of Kartik Tyagi will be crucial for Sunrisers Hyderabad as the likes of Umran Malik & Bhuvneshwar Kumar are leaking so many runs in the death overs. While, for CSK, there are not too many options to make swift changes. Simarjeet Singh and another pacer would get a chance in place of left-arm Mukesh Choudhary. So here are the best possible combinations for both sides.
Playing XI For CSK: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali(✈️), Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja (C), Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni (W), Dwayne Bravo(✈️), Dwaine Pretorius(✈️), Chris Jordan(✈️), Simarjeet Singh.
