  • Rachin Ravindra has been in prime form. He is yet to score a fifty but every time he came at the crease, he looked set to score a big one. He might be third time lucky so Rachin can be the top scorer for CSK. Matheesha Pathirana is a top choice to pick most wickets for CSK. He bowls at death and his searing yorkers are not easy to face. He picked three wickets against the Capitals.
  • Heinrich Klaasen is in the form of his life. Game after game, he has played astonishing innings for SRH. He has already smacked a couple of fifties in IPL 2024. He is a great pick for SRH top batter. T Natarajan should be back in SRH playing XI. He is a great bowler to have in the team given the variations he brings to the table. He picked three wickets in the last game he played, against KKR.
  • The last game played at this venue saw over 500 runs being scored. It was raining sixes and the bowlers looked helpless. Given the quality of batters in both teams, total sixes should be over 15.5 in the match.

Team NEWS: 

SRH Team News: 

There is no clear fitness update for T Natarajan. He played against KKR but was ruled out of the following two games. He was expected to get fit before the previous clash against GT but didn’t. Expectations are high that he could return to playing XI against CSK, however, there is no official update. In another massive blow, ace all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga has pulled out of the tournament. 

CSK Team News: 

Mustafizur Rahman is unlikely to be available for the clash and he has flown back home due to personal reasons. Shardul Thakur can replace him in the playing XI. Mitchell Santner might also have a chance of getting a game.

Winning Chances: 

CSK will start the match as favourites. CSK are more balanced in terms of batting depth and quality in bowling. SRH have good pacers but they lack a match winner spinner. CSK have good pacers and spinners which make their bowling look much better. It won’t be easy for SRH batters to be at their destructive best against CSK and there are chances that the team could struggle against the Gaikwad-led side. CSK are clear favourites to win.

Chennai Super Kings to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Sunrisers Hyderabad a 57% chance to win this match 

Chennai Super Kings a 43% chance to win this match 

Key Players: 

Sunrisers Hyderabad 

Travis Head 

Head has played two games so far and has looked in devastating form. He scored 62 in 24 balls against MI, helping SRH post 277-3, and looked good during his knock of 19 against GT before throwing away his wicket. Head plays only one way thus if he stays at the wicket for say 30 balls, CSK will be in massive trouble.

Abhishek Sharma 

Abhishek Sharma is finally repaying the faith shown by the franchise over the years. Like Head, he too has been at his ruthless best. He has scored 124 runs so far at a strike rate of 200, including a fifty.

Heinrich Klaasen 

He is arguably the best T20 player at the moment in world cricket. If Klaasen is batting and the game looks beyond the reach, don’t get your eyes off the TV as Klaasen can pull off miraculous wins. He almost did that against KKR when he got SRH close to the target of 209 with a 29 ball 63. He has so far scored 167 runs at a strike rate of 219, including two fifties.

Pat Cummins 

The bowling has not been bad at all but the format is such where bowlers can do very little. However, Cummins has bowled well and picked a wicket for just 28 runs against GT.

SRH Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Umran Malik, Washington Sundar, Glenn Phillips, Nitish Reddy, Upendra Yadav 

The wicket will be a belter so SRH might need an extra bowler against CSK. Umran Malik or Washington Sundar could be picked depending on match situation.

Chennai Super Kings 

Rachin Ravindra 

Rachin Ravindra has looked in sparkling form for CSK. He has played a couple of blinders but hasn’t quite gone on to turn the knocks into match winning ones. But the way he is striking the ball, a big knock is not far away.

Shivam Dube 

Dube has been brilliant for CSK. Game after game, he has impressed with his striking abilities. In fact, he has become one of the mainstays of this CSK batting. Dube has scored just over 100 runs for CSK in three games. On a placid surface in Hyderabad, he can be devastating.

Matheesha Pathirana 

Pathirana has a big role to play for CSK in the season. He has started well and picked three wickets for 31 runs against DC. His skills in death overs make him one of the most lethal pacers to face in final overs.

Ravindra Jadeja 

Jadeja has been off-colour so far but brings in immense value to the team. He is a quality batter down the order, and is CSK’s leading spinner along with being a gun fielder as well. Jadeja will be looking to turn things around against SRH.

CSK Possible Impact Player Substitutes 

Sameer Rizvi, Shardul Thakur, Shaik Rasheed, Nishant Sandhu, Mitchell Santner, Moeen Ali 

CSK are trying to invest in Sameer Rizvi and he is likely to be used as an impact player. If Shardul fails to find a place in playing XI, he will also be an option for impact player.

Team Forms: 

SRH Team Form: 

SRH have played good cricket but luck has not gone their way, with the team losing two out of the three games in IPL 2024.

CSK Team Form: 

CSK were top notch at home but suffered a defeat to DC in last game in Vizag. They would look to do well against SRH and prove that the team can win against any team and in any conditions.
