CSK vs SRH IPL: In what looks like a complete mismatch, red-hot Chennai Super Kings take on bottom-rooted Sunrisers Hyderabad in an IPL 2021 match at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Wednesday evening (IST). The mood inside the SRH camp is downhearted following a poor start to the current campaign with the Orange Army winning just once in the first five rounds. That return is bad enough to prop up the table. To make matter worse, there are rumours that captain David Warner may depart for Australia due to heart-wrenching ever-increasing numbers of Covid-19 cases in India.
David Warner said dropping Manish Pandey was a tough call. But the 31-year-old Indian has been a luxury at times for Warner and SRH, with his output hardly justifying the huge talent he boasts. As you may know, Pandey sat out the last two games due to SRH’s tactical reasons.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar also missed the last two games for SRH due to a hamstring issue. Bhuvi is one of the finest bowlers in world cricket and is vital to SRH’s chances of qualifying for the playoffs.
However, both Pandey and Bhuvi could make a comeback for the game against Mumbai Indians with the latter’s involvement depending on the fitness.
SRH are likely to make changes for MI encounter. Manish Pandey is one of the players earning a recall, with Virat Singh creating space in SRH Playing 11.
Provided Bhuvi is declared fit, Abhishek Sharma is likely to get the chop in favour of Indian international.
