Head to Head
The Chennai Super Kings lead 3-2 over their last five matches against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Last season they won one match each with the Super Kings winning the last encounter by 20 runs.
Chennai Super Kings Form
The Chennai Super Kings are top of the table with four wins from their five matches. It is only net run rate that is keeping them there with two other teams’ level on points.
After a slow start in which the Super Kings lost their opening match, they have bounced back to win four in a row. Last time out the Super Kings beat the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 69 runs in Mumbai.
Batting first Faf du Plessis again performed well for the men in yellow with 50 runs. It was however left to Ravindra Jadeja to take the Super Kings from a decent total to a very good one.
Jadeja smashed the final over for 35 runs as he ended on 62 off 28 balls. The 191-run total was always going to be an uphill battle for the Challengers.
Jadeja bowled superbly, taking 3-13 to win the man of the match award. RCB were bowled out for 122 runs, handing the Super Kings a comfortable win.
Chennai Super Kings Injuries & Team News
The Chennai Super Kings are spoiled for options at the moment. Moeen Ali lost his place despite showing good form but he could come back into the side.
Imran Tahir made his first appearance of the season last time out and bowled magnificently. He should retain his place. Another international player in Lungi Ngidi can’t seem to find a place in the side due to the good form of the bowlers.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Form
The Sunrisers Hyderabad are bottom of the table with one win in five matches. They have been unfortunate in recent matches despite their improving form.
After restricting the Delhi Capitals to 159 runs in Chennai in their last match, the Sunrisers would have been hopeful of a second win in a row. Jonny Bairstow got them off to a perfect start with 38 runs off 18 balls.
Unfortunately wickets fell regularly after he departed and Kane Williamson was left to try and win it on his own. The New Zealand captain ended on 66 not out as he leveled the scores off the final ball, however the Capitals won the battle of the Super Over.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Injuries & Team News
The Sunrisers have a few problems on their hands. Their batting is very top heavy with David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson batting as the top three. Thereafter the players are not performing.
We could see a shuffle to add one of those three to the middle order for experience. Jason Roy would be an option but he will need to replace an international player, all of whom are performing well.
