MA Chidambaram Stadium
Chennai Super Kings -150 / Sunrisers Hyderabad +120
In the Indian Premier League, the Chennai Super Kings will host the Sunrisers Hyderabad for a major match in the tournament.
CSK lost their previous match as they were beaten by RCB. It was a disappointing loss for Chennai and it exposes the team’s batting issues. During the loss, CSK bowled extremely well as they restricted a strong RCB batting unit to less than 170 on a flat wicket. Chahar, Jadeja and Bravo all bowled very well as the three bowlers combined to take 6 wickets. The batting was the issues as the team fell 1 run short with only MS Dhoni playing a decent inning. Dhoni scored 84 runs which was over 50% of the teams total. A better batting performance is required from CSK in this match.
On the other side of the coin, SH won their previous match with ease as they beat KKR at home. The team bowled extremely well as they restricted KKR to 159. Khaled Ahmed was the best bowler for Sunrisers Hyderabad as the paceman took 3 wickets for 33 runs. The batting was led by Jonny Bairstow who scored 80 runs of 43 balls.
CSK and SH played earlier in the season in Hyderabad where SH won with ease. It was a low scoring match and the SH pace bowlers were destructive. This match is also expected to be a low scoring contest but the Chennai pitch is suited for spin bowling. Looking at the two teams, both teams are very strong and have been winning. That being said, I see the Chennai Super Kings winning this match. CSK have a better spin bowling unit and the likes of Imran Tahir and Ravindra Jadeja will be very hard to face on this pitch. CSK have an amazing record at home and I see them getting another 2 points from this match.
