CSK vs SRH MPL Team: The current No. 8th placed team, Chennai Super Kings, are set to take on the No. 7th placed team, Sunrisers Hyderabad in match 14 of the ongoing Indian Premier League. Both teams have one win from 3 matches but their stories are completely different. CSK won the IPL opener against reigning champions Mumbai Indians and followed it up by two horrible run-chases which mean two embarrassing defeats. SRH, on the other hand, lost their first two games before correcting their game to secure their first win. There are visible problems in both the teams as CSK in the absence of Suresh Raina are missing a player who can change the tempo of the game in the middle-overs while SRH are struggling to find a balance in their middle-order and are top-heavy. However, these are two big teams we are talking about, teams who have won IPL title before (3 in the case of MS Dhoni-led CSK) and nobody expects them to be at the bottom of the table which means we are in for a keenly fought contest.
CHE vs HYD MPL Prediction: Match Details
Fixture: Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, Match 11, IPL 2020
Date: Friday, 02nd October 2020
Time: 7:30 PM (IST); 6:00 PM (Local Time)
Venue: Dubai International Stadium, Dubai
Pitch Report: Dubai has hosted 6 matches so far and on all 6 occasions team batting first have won the game. It proves that the pitch slows up a bit in the second innings and also that the dew factor is not much. However, captain winning the toss tend to go for the chasing option more. There are runs for the taking on this pitch as on 4 occasions team batting first posted more than 170 which includes two 200+ totals.
Team News CSK: The Yellow army will be relieved by the fact that Ambati Rayudu, who missed the last two games because of hamstring injury, is set to make a comeback into the squad. Rayudu has been one of the consistent run-scorer for them and brings in a lot of experience.
Team News SRH: Sunrisers brought in NZ skipper Kane Williamson in the last game and were rewarded instantly. Having won the last game, SRH will be confident in their team selection and are expected to field the same unit.
Expected Change: Rayudu coming back in the squad is a certainty but who he will replace remains to be seen. Murali Vijay is the prime candidate to lose his spot considering three back-to-back failures but you never expect the obvious from Captain Cool. CSK vs SRH MPL Prediction Fantasy Cricket Tips.
CSK vs SRH MPL Playing 11
CSK Playing XI (Predicted)
Faf du Plessis
MS Dhoni (C&WK)
Sam Curran/Dwayne Bravo
SRH Playing XI (Predicted)
David Warner (C)
Jonny Bairstow (WK)
Khaleel Ahmed/Sandeep Sharma
Faf du Plessis: One may question the importance of the runs he is scoring for CSK but no one can question the points he is scoring in Fantasy League. The veteran South African has been consistent with the bat and is one of the top contenders for the Orange Cap race. The time he takes to build-up his innings is working against CSK but it doesn’t matter to you.
David Warner: We all can see that Warner is ticking, he is irritated by the fact that he hasn’t been able to contribute to the extent he would like to. He was decent against Delhi Capitals but not anywhere near his best. It is true that Warner has a lot of pressure because of the middle-order troubles but expect him to score big here as it is a big game. A no-nonsense option in CSK vs SRH today match prediction.
Sam Curran: He is one of the few CSK players who is playing positive cricket. He is aggressive with the ball and also with the bat and has been go-to player for MSD in the absence of injured Dwayne Bravo. Expect the talented all-rounder to make a mark in this game too.
Kane Williamson: It is such a sight to see Williamson bat and his innings against DC was all class. The shy Kiwi hits gaps at will and can score at a very good pace even without slogging. He did not field in the last match but the news is that it was a precautionary measure and he is expected to play this match
X-Factors – Differential Picks
Shane Watson: The big Australian opener has shown signs of exploding but he hasn’t exploded yet and this could turn out to be his match. Nobody can forget the hundred he scored against the same opposition in the 2018 final and nobody can dare to undermine the power he still possesses. Watch out for Dr. Watson!
Rashid Khan: Rashid Khan has a brilliant last match where he picked up 3 crucial Delhi wickets and helped SRH defend a par score. Before the last match we told you to bank on his and see how it worked out! Now that the Afghan has tested blood, expect him to be thirstier!
MPL Most Affordable Players
Piyush Chawla (Credits 8.5): CSK spent a lot of money to buy the experienced leg-spinner but he has only been good in patches so far. Chawla would know that Imran Tahir is waiting for his chance to play he needs to come up with a substantial effort to prolong his presence.
T Natarajan (Credits 8): Natarajan bowled more Yorkers in the last game against DC then all the other bowlers combined in the tournament so far! The statement may look exaggerated and it is (only a bit) but the great thing was at least he went for the weapon that has long served the paceman. He has been highly impressive and deserved a place in your squad.
