“CSK have already confirmed their berth in the Playoffs. In recent times, the team has suffered a couple of hiccups, losing to Royal Challengers Bangalore and most recently to the Kolkata Knight Riders. The team will want to get back to its winning ways quickly, for they will be keen finish the league season among the top two teams and head to the Playoffs with some winning momentum.
“With Brendon McCullum heading back home to be with his wife for their child’s birth, the team will need the other two in-form players – Dwayne Smith and Suresh Raina – to step up. Smith is CSK’s top run-getter, while Raina – who has had few opportunities to stamp his authority – will be confident after scoring half-centuries in his last two innings. On the basis of what one saw in the previous match, in Ranchi, CSK’s spinners – R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Samuel Badree – will be expected to once again exploit the conditions in play.
“Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous outing to stay in the race for the Playoffs. They not only need a victory to remain in the race, but also need to win big to improve their net run-rate, which is the worst amongst all the teams still in contention for the Playoffs.
“Sunrisers Hyderabad’s decision to promote the in-form David Warner to open the innings came off in their previous match. They will, in all likelihood, stick to the same hoping pair and hope Shikhar Dhawan and Warner can repeat their performances. Naman Ojha and Aaron Finch hold the key in the middle order, given their ability to play the big shots regularly. On the bowling front, SRH need Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Dale Steyn to cause some damage early on and hope the spinners can strangle the CSK batsmen.”
