Cricket Match Preview:
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Sun Risers Hyderabad (SRH) for the second time in this year’s IPL at Chepauk Stadium, Chennai. SRH came out with a win against CSK in the first cricket game. However, that CSK team didn’t have MS Dhoni as their skipper as he had taken precautionary rest. CSK are sitting well on top on the points table with seven wins out of nine cricket games, whereas SRH are at number five spot with just four wins out of eight cricket games.
SRH’s success in this tournament was mainly due to the opening pair of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. In the games of cricket in which these two have fired, they have won easily but the problem has been when either or both have failed. It almost seems like SRH are playing with no middle order. Such has been the failure of stars like Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan that they had been dropped from the side at the halfway stage in the tournament.
CSK, on the other hand, would like to believe that their last cricket game was an aberration. Everything that could have gone wrong went wrong for them. None of the batsmen looked at home and their bowling looked toothless against the batting lineup of SRH. But CSK will have the services of MS Dhoni back for this cricket game and nothing holds them like Dhoni.
SRH bowlers have once again been good in the tournament but they desperately need Kane Williamson to be back among runs in the middle order. If he can get back among runs, SRH will feel less pressure in the middle order and David Warner and Jonny Bairstow will be able to score freely. SRH have tried a few options in the middle order but ideally, they would want the likes of Manish Pandey to start performing.
CSK have had great times against SRH in last five cricket games. Barring the last cricket game, they have won four cricket games against SRH including the final of IPL 2018. If CSK win this game of cricket, then they will strengthen their position at the top of the points table, whereas a win for SRH will take them closer to a playoff spot.
