Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)

Sunrisers Hyderabad

The Hyderabad-based franchise faced one of the most unfortunate defeats of this tournament in their last game against Rajasthan Royals. From a winning situation, SRH went on to lose that game after inspirational batting from youngsters Rahul Tewatia and Riyan Parag. 

They have performed well in the tournament as of now. With three wins in seven matches, SRH holds the fifth spot at the Points Table. Hyderabad made a single change in their lineup during the last game as Vijay Shankar took Abdul Samad’s place. Their side looked balanced in that clash and will take the field with the same playing XI.

Chennai Super Kings (CSK)

CSK Players

MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings have had one of the most forgettable seasons in the history of IPL. With just two wins in seven clashes, the last year’s runner-ups hold the seventh spot at the Points Table. Moreover, CSK looks like one of the most unbalanced sides of this IPL season. 

After last match’s defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore, MS Dhoni and coach Stephen Fleming pointed at various problems for the franchise. They also questioned the playing style of their top-order batsmen. MS Dhoni hinted at the inclusion of an overseas fast bowler after the last game. So, Josh Hazlewood might find a place for Dwayne Bravo in playing XI.
