The Indian T20 League is moving along quickly and wins are becoming increasingly important now especially
for sides like Hyderabad who are languishing in the lower half of the table after winning just one of the total games they have played so far.
They are up against a side in red-hot form, Chennai who are on a winning streak. Nothing can go wrong for Dhoni’s men at the moment. The changes they are making are working and they are
getting someone or the other to step up in every game. They look a formidable side with a deep batting line-up and a quality bowling attack.
Hyderabad, on the other hand, are strong at the top, in the batting department, their bowling also has variety but their middle order is a
big concern. Shankar has not been at his best with the bat, Jadhav did not impress in his first charnce, while Virat Singh also struggled when preferred over Manish Pandey. Suchith did show promise both with the bat and ball. They would hope Bhuvneshwar Kumar could
come back into the side and he would probably come in for Abhishek Sharma. A new venue will be used for this match as this will be the first game in Delhi. Will the change in place bring the change in fortunes for Hyderabad?
When: Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, Match 22, April 28, 2021, 7:30 PM IST.
Where: Arun Jaitley stadium, New Delhi.
What to expect: The pitches in Delhi are expected to be slow and aid bowlers with the ability to use change of pace. Spinners should do well too. It’s a venue that will suit both these sides.
Head to head: In 14 meetings, CSK have won 10 and SRH just 4. In the last three years, CSK have enjoyed a 6-2 record against SRH. In the 2018 season, CSK beat SRH four times, including in the final, to win the title.
Probable 11s :
CHENNAI SUPER KINGS: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali/
Dwayne Bravo, Suresh Raina, Robin Uthappa, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Sam Curran, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir.
SUNRISERS HYDERABAD: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, Virat Singh/Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar,
Abhishek Sharma, Kedar Jadhav/Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Jagadeesha Suchith, Khaleel Ahmed/Bhuvneshwar
Kumar, Siddarth Kaul.
