Chennai Super Kings vs. Sunrisers Hyderabad Match Prediction Tips | CHE vs HYD Who will win Today Match
Match 57, Qualifier 01, IPL 2018|CSK vs SRH Dream11 Prediction
Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai May 22 at 08:00 PM IST
So, after weeks of pulsating action, that saw ebbs and flows rise to alarming levels, we are finally down to the business end of the tournament, the Playoffs. The first Qualifier of the 2018 season will be played out at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on May 22, 2018, and will be preceded by the first ever Women’s T20 challenge.
The ever-so consistent, Chennai Super Kings have made it to the Playoffs for the record ninth time, and are coming off a win against KXIP in the last league match. While Suresh Raina led the chase with a pristine 61 in tough batting conditions, but it was really their fast-bowling, spearheaded by Lungisani Ngidi (4-10 in 4 overs) that paved the way for their shenanigans as they knocked KXIP out by five wickets.
Their opponents, the Sunrisers Hyderabad were the first team to qualify for 2018 season, have hit a road-block of sorts, having lost their last three games. The campaign of SRH was basically built on their ability to choke the opposition batsmen, but it finally seems, their bowling has been found out, having conceded 180 against CSK, 218 against RCB, and 173 against KKR in the last three games. On the batting front, skipper Kane Williamson has led from the front, with 661 runs in 14 innings, along with Shikhar Dhawan, accumulating 437 runs across 13 innings. But the major disappointment of their campaign, have been Manish Pandey. The right-handed batsman has been lackluster, often failing to finish off games, and with the likes of Pathan, Hooda, too having a lackluster season, Pandey’s role assumes prime importance. Opener Shrivats Goswami scored a brisk 50 in the last game and will be key against CSK in CSK vs SRH IPL 2018 match.
