IPL 2020 – CSK vs SRH, Who will win today’s match?
What is on the agenda today? Another nail biter? Of course, with all the sharp turns this season has taken, it is only natural to expect the unexpected in every match. The 14th match of the Dream 11 IPL 2020, in the Dubai International Cricket Stadium tonight is between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad at 19:30 IST (14:00 GMT) and is a crucial one for both the teams.
CSK and SRH are in the bottom half of the points table, which is why every match counts. While CSK started the season with an amazing victory against Mumbai, the team could not continue the same. SRH, on the other hand, lost their first 2 matches but have gained momentum and won against Delhi Capitals by 15 runs.
Both the teams have played against each other 12 times, and CSK holds the upper hand with 9 victories; but one cannot be sure of which of them is a better team. Both these teams have to improve their game to move up in the points table.
For CSK, hurdles have shadowed them even before the commencement of the season but they continue to give their best. MS Dhoni, the captain who keeps proving that he is the best, has just 2 catches left to touch the mark of 100 catches in IPL by a wicket-keeper. Ambati Rayudu, the hero of the season’s opening match, is available for selection and this is a boost for the team. Faf du Plessis has scored 173 runs in the last 3 matches and is the third-highest run-scorer of the season.
A bowling unit as good as this can scare the SRH batsmen. Sam Curran, an all-rounder, and a star pace bowler has taken 5 wickets till now. Both Piyush Chawla and Lungi Ngidi have taken 4 wickets each, followed by Deepak Chahar who has taken 3.
Coming to SRH, the opening duo of David Warner, the terrific captain, and Jonny Bairstow, a destructive Batsman was good enough but adding Kane Williamson’s prowess to the middle order gave them an extra momentum. Kane scored an amazing figure of 41 off 26 balls against DC in the last match. Another good player, Manish Pandey scored 51 runs in their match against KKR and played a crucial part in Hyderabad’s victory.
In their bowling unit, they have equally good players like CSK. Rashid Khan, a key leg spinner, has taken 4 wickets in the last matches and T Natarajan, the yorker specialist, has taken 3 wickets. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, one of the top threats for the CSK batsmen, has taken 2 wickets.
Will CSK get back to its usual winning self? Or will SRH continue the winning streak?
