SRH vs CSK Dream 11 Prediction: Nothing much differs both teams at the end of the first half of IPL 2020 except that Sunrisers Hyderabad has managed an extra win than Chennai Super Kings from 7 games. Sunrisers Hyderabad haven’t managed to win consistently while Chennai Super Kings has looked out of sorts this year. The previous encounter between these two teams saw SRH win with some astounding batting performance from their young batters P Garg and A Sharma, while CSK fell agonizingly short by 7 runs with Dhoni clearly not at his best. SRH’s batting has revolved around the opening pair of Warner and Bairstow while CSK’s old-age method of taking the chase to the deep have backfired with an ageing Dhoni. This match is a do or die contest for CSK with chances of them not qualifying for the playoffs for the first time seems certain.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have been on and off this season with 3 wins from 7 matches. The 2016 champions lost their key fast bowler – Bhuvneshwar Kumar, to an injury and had to make do with the back-up options. The bowling attack seems one-dimensional with the lack of a quality hit the deck seamer and a quality 5th bowling option. Their batting has been largely dependent on Warner and Bairstow with Manish being inconsistent while Williamson contributing well in his new finisher’s role. Rashid Khan and Natarajan have been exceptional this season but lacks quality bowling support. With the tracks at Dubai assisting spinners, Warner could be tempted to bring back Samad in place of Shankar.
Chennai Super Kings at the halfway stage of IPL 2020 has managed only 4 points from 7 games and they run the risk of not qualifying to the playoffs for the first time ever in IPL history. As Dhoni rightly said, there are too many holes in the ship and if they plug one hole, the water flows from another. Batting unit lacks intent as a whole while the bowling lacks consistency. They’ve chose to or been made to chase in all the 7 games so far with their old method of taking the chase deep failing big time due to the decline of MSD’s batting prowess. They could bring in I Tahir or Hazlewood in place of Bravo but they’re more likely to field the same eleven as the last match.
A fresh deck is expected in Dubai for this game with could help run-scoring but with ample assistance for spinners especially finger-spinners. There’s no quality hit the deck pacers from both sides to exploit the conditions at Dubai. Dew is expected to make its presence.

SRH Playing 11 (probable):
D Warner (C)
J Bairstow (WK)
Let’s take a look at some best picks for SRH vs CSK Dream11 Prediction
D Warner – He hasn’t been at his best this season but certainly consistent with just one single-digit score to his name scoring 275 runs from 7 matches. In the last game against CSK, he was tied down by CSK pacers in the Powerplay and could only manage 28 runs.
J Bairstow – He has been the aggressor in the partnership between Warner and him and has already scored 3 fifties from 7 games. Chahar and S Curran can trouble him with some movement at the start but if he survives that phase, he can cash in later.
R Khan – He’s bowling at his best this season with a great economy and at the same time grabbing wickets. CSK batters are most likely to play him out but still, he could bag a couple of wickets at Dubai.
T Natarajan – The Tamilnadu pacer has been impressive with his control over the yorkers and the vulnerability of CSK’s top-order could help him bag some cheap wickets at the death.

F Du Plessis
MS Dhoni (WK & C)
Let’s take a look at some best picks for SRH vs CSK Today Match Prediction
MS Dhoni – He certainly loves batting against SRH which is evident by his average and strike-rate of 63.14 and 147.83 respectively against them. He was so close to finishing the game for CSK in their last fixture against CSK with a 36 ball 47.
S Watson – He returned to form with a couple of fifties in the last 3 matches against CSK and similar to Dhoni has a great record against SRH and is one of the few batsmen in CSK batting unit who can take on Rashid Khan.
S Curran – The young all-rounder has been reduced to playing cameos with the bat with less game-time with the bat but is still a 4-overs bowler for CSK.
Faf Du Plessis – With 307 runs from 7 games, he’s been the most consistent run-scorer for CSK this season. In the last fixture against SRH, he was run-out in an unfortunate manner and will surely look to compensate for it this match.
Team Composition Preferences –
1). All Rounders – There’s a lot of differential picks available in this category and try to use it to your advantage.
2). Batsman – Pick a mixture of top-order batsmen and some quality middle-order bats.
3). Bowlers – Give more preference to spinners and regarding pacers pick the ones who bowl predominantly at the death.
4). Wicket-Keeper – Three quality options available here with Jagadeesan being your differential pick.
Having more SRH players in the SRH vs CSK Dream11 Match Prediction team is preferable.
Captaincy Picks –
Choose one of the top-order batsmen from both teams as your captain or make one of those utility all-rounders as the captain. If you want to go out of the box, choose a spinner as your captain.
Differential Picks –
K Sharma – With Dubai assisting spinners a lot he will certainly come handy and the lack of left-handed batters in SRH line-up will help him too.
A Sharma – With the presence of too many right-handers in CSK batting unit, his left-arm spin could well be used by Warner. His batting points are a bonus.
