CSK Playing 11: Chennai Super Kings are living on the edge. One more loss and they can consider themselves out of the playoffs race and end their dismal season for 2022. However, ahead of their clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Ravindra Jadeja has handed back the captaincy reigns to the one & only MS Dhoni who has led this side right since 2008. Jadeja wants to focus on his game and the captaincy burden proved way too much for the left-hander.
With Dhoni set to don the captain’s hat yet again, one can expect Chennai Super Kings for a massive turnaround in this season. The Super Kings will now be facing Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday evening at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.
Chennai Super Kings are heading into this game on the back of a disappointing loss at the hands of Punjab Kings by 11 runs. Ambati Rayudu’s heroics did take Chennai Super Kings close to the finishing line but failed to get over it. The team has struggled with their combination in the entire season and once again we can expect some changes in the eleven.

CSK will tinker with their eleven with the game. Mitchell Santner hasn’t been used properly in the two games he has played so far. Either Devon Conway or Moeen Ali can be brought into the eleven once again. Devon Conway has rejoined the camp after his wedding and is available for selection.
Will Matheesha Pathirana get a go straight away? Sri Lanka’s baby Malinga i.e., Matheesha Pathirana has joined the CSK camp as a replacement for Blackcaps pacer dam Milne. Pathirana has represented the Sri Lanka U19 team in two U19 World Cups. He is known for his fiery pace and Malinga-type Sling action. What will he bring to the table for a struggling CSK outfit? Will he play in this game replacing Dwaine Pretorius? This remains interesting to be seen.
