CSK vs SRH IPL: The 2016 IPL-winners Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have surely not played to the best of their abilities so far in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The David Warner-led team has won just a single game this season that came against Punjab Kings and suffered four big losses. However, they will be very much eager to improve their performance as the Sunrisers Hyderabad are all set to face the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on 28th April.
Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner mentioned after the last loss against Delhi Capitals that it was a very harsh call by the team management on Manish Pandey warming the bench. Pandey who scored an excellent fifty in the opening game against Kolkata is likely to return into the playing XI for this game possibly in place of Virat Singh. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Abdul Samad also picked up injuries in the previous game and it will be interesting to see whether the duo are fit for this game or not.

Jonny Bairstow in IPL 2021
England’s swashbuckling batsman Jonny Bairstow surely has been Sunrisers Hyderabad’s top performer in this edition of the IPL. He has smashed a total of 211 runs in 5 matches at a brilliant average of 52.75 and with a strike-rate of 141.61. Bairstow also scored two excellent fifties on a difficult Chepauk wicket.
David Warner vs CSK
Although, SRH captain David Warner has not been in the best of forms this season but he has a superb record against Chennai Super Kings since IPL 2014. In 7 matches, Warner has scored 348 runs at an average of 49.7 and a strike-rate of 153.3. The left-handed opener has five 50+ scores to his name against CSK in the last 7 innings.
Rashid Khan vs Suresh Raina
Sunrisers Hyderabad’s premier spinner Rashid Khan also has a brilliant record against CSK veteran Suresh Raina in the IPL. Rashid has dismissed Raina thrice since IPL 2017. Therefore, SRH captain David Warner will surely use the leg-spinner against Raina in this game.
