Team News

Sunrisers Hyderabad

SRH are coming into the match after a terrible performance against GT. Hyderabad will face more challenges against the defending champions especially because they also lost their previous game and there is nothing more dangerous than a wounded lion.

Travis Head and Mayank Agarwal are expected to open the inning with Abhishek Sharma coming in at no 3 and Aiden Markram at no 4.

Heinrich Klaasen will be hoping to continue his top form at no 5 while Samad and Shahbaz take the responsibility of finishing.

Washington Sundar appeared in the last game as an impact sub and Captain Pat Cummins might do the same against CSK too. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jaydev Unadkat will lead the bowling attack alongside Pat Cummins who is bowling some important overs quite comfortably.

Mayank Markande hasn't impressed the fans and the team management with his bowling so far this season. SRH's main weakness is their spin attack and Wanindu Hasaranga is out for the season. SRH will have to rely upon Markande and Washington Sundar and they will have to deliver otherwise SRH will face some issues in a spin-friendly pitch.

Chennai Super Kings

As for CSK, Rachin Ravindra and skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad will have the responsibility to provide their team with a good start. Ajinkya Rahane will come in at no 3 and he has regained his form back. Shivam Dube and Daryl Mitchell will be the key players to lead the middle order with Ravindra Jadeja, Rizvi, and MS Dhoni to work at the finishing. The fans got to see MSD finally in action with the bat and Thala didn't disappoint them as he scored 37 runs in 16 deliveries. CSK did lose the game but Thala won the hearts again and the fans will be hoping to see him more in action as it is surely going to be his last season.

Tushar Deshpande has improved a lot, especially after bowling those poor overs against RCB in the opening fixture of this season. He is looking more confident and dangerous in his spells now and he will be leading the attack alongside Deepak Chahar or Shardul Thakur. Chahar is looking inconsistent with his bowling and the management might give Shardul a chance in the game against SRH. Mustafizur Rahman has taken some key wickets so far this season and will be hoping to do the same against his former franchise. Ravindra Jadeja will bowl his spell in the middle overs and Mitchell will be a good option to bowl 2-3 overs while Pathirana will be bowling the important death overs.
