CSK vs SRH Dream11 Prediction: After a week-long break, Chennai Super Kings will be back in action today at Dubai. They will have a challenge to tackle as Sunrisers Hyderabad are coming off fresh from their first win of the season against Delhi Capitals. Both the teams are in similar situations with a win from first 3 games this season. We will preview CSK vs SRH Dream11 contest.
Chennai Super Kings had to suffer a convincing defeat against Delhi Capitals in their last match at the same venue. Bowling first, CSK failed to pick up early wickets as openers put DC in a strong position with a stand of 94 runs. They did manage to pull things back in the second half of the innings but 175 runs were still very much above par on that surface. Piyush Chawla had two while Sam Curran picked up one wicket. In reply, not a single CSK batsman was able to play with freedom and lost wickets regularly. Only Faf du Plessis continued his form with an innings of 43 runs as CSK were restricted to mere 131 runs in their chase.
After losing first two matches of the season, Sunrisers Hyderabad finally booked their points against Delhi Capitals in their third match. Batting first, David Warner & Jonny Bairstow were not in their usual aggressive mode and started cautiously against the new ball. But as the ball got softer, the pair started to find their touch back. David Warner made 45 while Jonny Bairstow got out after making 53 runs. Kane Williamson played a blinder in his first match this season with 41 off just 26 balls as SRH posted 162 runs on the board. In reply, bowlers executed their plans brilliantly as Delhi batsmen were never allowed to cut loose. Rashid Khan was back among the wickets with a magnificent spell of 4-0-14-3 while Bhuvneshwar Kumar took a couple. In the end, SRH won the match by 15 runs.
In head-to-head comparisons, Chennai Super Kings have dominated Sunrisers Hyderabad in the matches between both the sides. CSK have won 10 matches while only 3 games have gone SRH’s way in a total of 13 encounters. In last 5 matches as well, CSK have won 4 of them. CSK won their 3rd IPL title by beating SRH in the 2018 final at Mumbai.
This match will be played on a fresh surface at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. Usually, we have seen a lot less turn during the first match on a particular pitch. So, this should remain good for the duration of 40 overs. Most of the matches this year have won by the teams batting first, so not long before captains start to put away the idea of bowling first on these UAE pitches.
