CSk vs SRh preview

Three-time Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Chennai Super Kings will host David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad in match 14 of the tournament. Both the teams will lock horns at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium of Dubai on October 2 (Thursday) from 7:30 PM (IST) onwards.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK)

Chennai Super Kings

IPL 2020 has been the worst season for MS Dhoni and co. as they are currently at the last spot in the Points Table. After a victory in the inaugural game against Mumbai Indians, CSK lost their next two matches by massive margins.

The Chennai-based franchise started facing a lot of issues, way before the tournament began. Earlier their most experienced players Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh pulled out from this edition. After that, Rayudu and Bravo also got injured, but the two are most likely to make a comeback in the CSK side against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)

Sunrisers Hyderabad

The story is somewhat similar for Sunrisers Hyderabad as they are just a position above their opponents at the seventh spot. After losing their first two matches, SRH finally registered their maiden victory of the season against Delhi Capitals. 

After encouraging performances from all the Sunrisers players in the previous game, they are most likely to play with the same playing XI in this game. The addition of Kane Williamson in the last encounter provided them with the much-needed depth in the middle-order.
