Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Chennai Super Kings Prediction and Pick

The head-to-head record between these two teams is totally lopsided in the favour of Chennai Super Kings. The Yellow Army have got the better of Hyderabad on 12 occasions, whereas the boys in orange have beaten Chennai only four times. The recent records also favour Chennai, as they have won three of the last four meetings between these two teams. Hence, Chennai are the favourites to win this match.


Chennai Super Kings to Win

Predicted XI

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Jason Roy, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Manish Pandey/Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Basil Thampi/Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul.

Chennai Super Kings: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Josh Hazlewood.

Chennai Super Kings Would Want to Avoid Getting Dragged in the Midfield Muddle

A win against Rajasthan Royals in their last match might have lifted the morale in the Sunrisers Hyderabad camp, but considering the broader perspective, it was not of much significance. The Orange Army are still rooted at the bottom of the points table with only two wins in ten matches.

They might not be actively involved in the party that is the playoffs race, but they can still play the role of party-spoilers. With eight wins from ten matches, Chennai Super Kings are placed at the top of the table. They are just one win away from officially confirming their playoffs place, and would want to get done with it soon.

Team News

Given that they are almost out of the playoffs race, pending only official confirmation, Hyderabad experimented heavily with their team combination in their last match against Rajasthan Royals. Most of the changes worked out well, except that Priyam Garg was dismissed for a duck. So, he can see his place being taken away by the experienced Manish Pandey. Sandeep Sharma did pick up a wicket, but he was also Hyderabad’s most expensive bowler. Hence, he might make way for the Kerala pacer, Basil Thampi.

Though Chennai won their last match against Kolkata Knight Riders, they too are likely to make one change. Dwayne Bravo, who is carrying an injury from the Caribbean Premier League, was rested in the previous match. His replacement Sam Curran leaked 56 runs, which should bring the West Indian back into Chennai’s playing XI. Barring that, MS Dhoni’s team should not be thinking of any other changes.

Key Players

Ruturaj Gaikwad: Ruturaj Gaikwad has been spectacular in the UAE phase of the tournament. He has scored over 35 runs in all of Chennai’s second phase matches. Having started off with a magnificent knock of unbeaten 88 runs against Mumbai Indians, and in his last two matches, he has registered scores of 40 and 38. The 24-year-old has scored 362 runs in this edition’s IPL.

Faf du Plessis: Gaikwad might have been Chennai’s best batter in this phase, but if we consider the season statistics, Faf du Plessis is still Chennai’s highest run-scorer with 394 runs. The South African was dismissed for a duck in the first match of this phase against Mumbai Indians, but in the last two matches, he has scored 74 runs.
