Hyderabad, April 17, Wednesday at 08:00 PM IST
So, it's time for the Chennai Super Kings Vs Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Vivo IPL 2019 Rivalry Week. While the defending champions are soaring high with seven wins in eight encounters, the hosts are feeling the heat after three consecutive defeats. Placed sixth in the table, Sunrisers Hyderabad has three wins and four defeats in seven encounters and are in desperate need of a win to revive their campaign.
The middle order has been the biggest trouble for Sunrisers Hyderabad as two of the last three defeats have come while chasing the target. Apart from the opening duo of J Bairstow and D Warner- who have done the bulk scoring for the side, nobody else has managed to score even a fifty. The side was bowled out for mere 116 runs in response to 156 runs target set by Delhi Capitals in the last game. So, they need to fix their middle order woes ahead of the clash with the high-flying Super Kings to secure a win.
On the opposite, Chennai Super Kings have grabbed the top spot with seven wins in eight encounters. Their only defeat came against Mumbai Indians and that too in Mumbai. The side looks pretty balanced and will surely pose a tough challenge for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
