Time is running out for Chennai Super Kings as they take on Sunrisrers Hyderabad to bring their campaign back on track. The game would be played on the Dubai International Cricket Stadium where Sunrisers Hyderbad defeated the Super Kings by 7 runs earlier in the competition. The pitch is getting slow and it would be difficult to score runs freely at this ground. Let's take a look at SRH vs CSK Dream11 Key Players who would be the biggest influence on the result of the game.
The English wicketkeeper has been blowing hot and cold in the tournament so far. He has scored 3 fifties so far including a whirlwind knock of 97 runs against Kings XI Punjab but he has been falling early in the other games. He would look to make amendments by giving SRH a flying start in this match by playing a match-winning knock.

Is there anything left to be said in the praise of this leg-spinner? Rashid Khan is a nightmare for the batsmen in the T20 cricket. He has returned to the form after a slow start and now he has been picking up wickets for SRH in the middle overs while stopping the flow of runs as well. The pitch of Dubai will suit his bowling and he could run through CSK's middle order.

Faf du Plessis
Faf has been the only in-form batsman for Chennai Super Kings this season. The former South African skipper has been scoring run at the top consistently at a brisk pace. He would be the key player if CSK have to revive their campaign from here. It is vital for them Faf to fire today against SRH.
IPL 2020 – Matches – 7, Runs – 307, Strike Rate – 147.59
He could be a surprising name here but in reality, Shardul Thakur has been a shining armour in otherwise a sorry campaign for CSK so far. In 4 games he has played, Thakur has bowled difficult overs for his team. He has also bowling well in the death and his variations could fetch him wickets on the slowish pitch of Dubai, while the bigger boundaries would also help the cause.

David Warner – David Warner has been rock-solid for Sunrisers Hyderbada so for. He hasn't been striking at his usual rate but he his scoring runs consistently and making sure they don't lose the wickets at the top.
Manish Pandey – The batsman has been batting responsibly and has already scored 2 fifties. He is providing the much-needed stability to the middle-order of SRH.
Vijay Shankar – The return of Vijay Shankar would help the SRH's cause massively. The all-rounder's ability to bowl in the middle-overs and dependable batting skills would provide a balance to the side.
Shane Watson – If CSK want to revive their campaign then Shane Watson's bat must fire. The all-rounder has done it in the past for his side and he would be itching to do it again.
Ambati Rayudu – He would be eager to reply his critics in this game. Rayudu is a class batsman who has scored runs consistently. He has to score runs in this game to hold the CSK innings together on a difficult pitch.
