SRH vs CSK: Who will win?

MS Dhoni-led CSK had a long one week break and they will be hoping to turn their fortunes around during this encounter against Sunrisers Hyderabad. SRH, on the other hand, got back to winning ways after toppling the table-toppers DC in the last match. But with experienced campaigners like Dwayne Bravo and Ambati Rayudu returning to their eleven, CSK possesses a slight advantage over the SRH, coming into this match. So if you are in for online betting place your money on CSK.

Strength

Chennai Super Kings:

  • The current form of Sam Curran is a huge plus for CSK. He has proved himself to be a genuine T20 all-rounder.
  • Faf du Plessis is in terrific form with the bat. He is one of the top leading run-getter of the IPL 2020 so far.
  • With Ambati Rayudu and Dwayne Bravo returning to the eleven, CSK has found their right balance and hence have strengthened their eleven.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • The best opening pair among 8 teams. Record of Warner-Bairstow speaks for themselves.
  • With Kane Williamson and Abdul Samad finding a place in the eleven, they have boosted their middle-order strength.
  • Rashid Khan and T.Natarajan are in great form with the ball.

Weakness

Chennai Super Kings:

  • In the absence of Ambati Rayudu, the batting line-up looked really out of shape. If that still continues, Rayudu’s single-handed effort may seem insufficient to take them home.
  • Worst opening duo in the tournament. Watson’s form is a huge worry and Vijay looks like he doesn’t belong to this format.
  • CSK’s strong force, the spin department has been pretty ordinary this season. Both Jadeja and Chawla are expensive and are inconsistent.
  • Some of their players like Kedar Jadhav, Ruturaj Gaikwad, etc do not have a well-destined role, and hence they are falling behind others in terms of performance.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • Even after adding Samad to the mix, their lower middle order lacks the potential to finish games at ease.
  • SRH is heavily reliant on the opening duo. If both of them don’t fire, then they are in very serious trouble.
  • Young Abhishek Sharma is their fifth bowling option. Even though he bowled well in the last match, it can be a weak link against an experienced opposition like CSK. Opposition teams are expected to target his four overs.
  • SRH does not have a proper sixth bowling option.

Win Prediction

  • SRH-55%
  • CSK-45%

Betting odds

Bet365: CSK- 1.80, SRH- 2.00

  • With Bravo and Rayudu returning to the eleven, they look even stronger than before. This also means their visible weakness like the opening partnerships and death bowling are also sorted out to a certain extend. And for these reasons they are expected to edge over the SRH, as per today match prediction.
  • Long boundaries in Dubai will shift the advantage in favour of the slow seamers and spinners of CSK.

SRH VS CSK MATCH PREDICTION

MS Dhoni-led CSK is coming off a 6 days break, and if the words of CSK coach Stephen Fleming is to be believed, they have made full use of this time to prepare and adapt to the Dubai conditions, where they will be playing the four of their next five matches. According to him, they will be starting afresh in Dubai once again. With Ambati Rayudu making a return to the eleven after a forced injury break, CSK’s opening woes seem to end. This also means that it is the end of the road for Murali Vijay’s IPL career. But still, then, the confirmation regarding who will open with Shane Watson is yet not revealed by the CSK management. The higher probabilities are for Faf du Plessis or Ambati Rayudu. Whereas some reports also suggest that CSK is planning to push young Sam Curran up the order to make use of his hard-hitting abilities in the powerplay. The other good news for CSK fans is the return of the champion-DJ Bravo. With him coming back, Dhoni now has a man, whom he can trust in the death overs. Josh Hazlewood is expected to make way for the West Indian veteran.

As for SRH, the middle order was boosted by the presence of Kane Williamson and young Abdul Samad in the last match. The form of left-arm pacer T.Natarajan and spin king Rashid Khan is a big plus for SRH. With a win finally under their belt, they are not expected to make any changes to their eleven.

CSK Playing 11: Shane Watson, Faf Du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla

SRH Playing 11: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Abdul Samad, Abhishek Sharma, Priyam Garg, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, T Natrajan

  1. Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu are the only trustable batsmen in the CSK line-up. As for cricket betting tips, they are the sure-shot players to invest your money in.
  2. Sam Curran is a value for money player as far as fantasy cricket is concerned. He is expected to contribute with both the bat and ball. Also with the reports of him opening the innings, it’s better not to take a risk by leaving him out of your fantasy eleven.
  3. SRH pacer T.Natarajan showed great promise in the last few matches that he played. To add to that, he is the only pacer so far in this edition of the IPL, who has been able to nail Yorkers consistently.
  4. SRH captain David Warner’s overall IPL consistency is tough to look beyond. He along with Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson holds the key for SRH’s chances.

SRH vs CSK Toss Prediction and Pitch Report

The UAE conditions still haven’t given any clue to the captains on what to expect from each surface. Despite having large boundaries, Dubai has seen 200+ scores and has also seen close games, which even went down to the super over. Dew is a major factor of concern that’ll prompt teams to field first. But the point to be noted is that most matches, even more than 70% of them were won by teams batting first. Considering the line-ups of both the teams anything above 170 seems to be a good enough score.

If Sunrisers Hyderabad bats first: 160-170

If Chennai Super Kings bats first: 150-160
