Game number 17 of the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League sees a clash between two sides who are yet to open their victory accounts this season. It is defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) taking on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)
Super Kings are currently in a horrible position, having lost all three of their matches. Despite batting second in their previous match, they were unable to chase down the goal against Punjab Kings’ inexperienced bowling attack, losing by 54 runs. If they want to secure their first points on the table, they must do something unusual.
SRH’s campaign, on the other hand, got off to a shaky start with a 61-run loss to the Rajasthan Royals before running out of steam in another run chase against the newcomers Lucknow Super Giants. The massive loss versus RR has had a negative influence on their net run rate, which is currently -1.825.
We can’t say who will win this clash but one thing is certain and that is one of them will get some points on the table today.
CSK vs SRH – Match Details
Venue: DY Patil Stadium, Navi Mumbai
Date & Time: April 9, 3:30 PM
Live Streaming: Star Sports Network for Television and Disney + Hotstar app for live streaming.
Both pacers and spinners benefit greatly from the wicket at the DY Patil Stadium. The batters, too, will be anticipating dominating in the powerplay overs. As the game develops, the surface is intended to slow down.
As a result, the captain who wins the toss may try to bat first. Another reason to bat first is that the game is in the afternoon.
Chennai Super Kings
Chris Jordan did not disappoint with the ball in his first encounter for Chennai Super Kings, picking up two wickets at an economy rate of 5.75 against Punjab Kings. He’s good at executing pinpoint yorkers towards the end of games
Rahul Tripathi, who was removed after scoring 44 runs off 30 balls against Punjab Kings, was playing some incredible smashes. In this match, he is predicted to do well.
Chennai Super Kings: Robin Uthappa, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja (c), MS Dhoni (wk), Shivam Dube, Dwayne Bravo, Dwaine Pretorius, Chris Jordan, Tushar Deshpande.
Sunrisers Hyderabad: Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Abdul Samad, Washington Sundar, Romario Shepherd, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T Natarajan.
