Today’s match prediction for SRH vs CSK is as followed:-
Toss Predictions for SRH vs CSK:
The Pitch report for Rajiv Gandhi Stadium where it is a typical Indian wicket dry and breaking up as the match progresses it slows down. It is a bit ground so spinners get more opportunity of tossing up the ball and get plenty of wickets. Spinners are brought later in the game, the team that wins the toss would want to bat first and defend in second innings.
If SRH bats first (predicted score 160-180 )
There are potential batsmen in the team who can play match-winning innings and can score a big individual score which will reflect the main scoreboard. Williamson, Bairstow or Warner (whoever opens) and Yusuf Pathan, Deepak Hooda and Vijay Shanker will be the strong and consistent line-up a bowling unit will have to pass the toughest test. We predict Warner to end as highest run-scorer from the Sunrisers team. Sunrises have lost their last 2 matches and they will look for a serious change in the middle order.
If CSK bats first (predicted score 165-180)
CSK looks with experienced line-up where all the batsmen are 30+ aged and bats with calmness without taking any risks, if they lose early wickets the pressure comes to the middle-order. Suresh Raina scored an amazing half century in thelast match to get them to a victory. The key in the Csk batting unit would be Rayudu and Watson as their pair has been consistent and Watson has a hundred to his name against his previous franchise so we can expect a big partnership from these two. This time they will open with Watson and Du Plessis. Santner will be the interesting fourth oversea player pick in the side in place of Bravo.
Team News for SRH & CSK:
There will be options to open the innings between Warner, Martin Guptill, Jonny Bairstow and Wrriddhiman Saha. But for the opening partnership between the English man Bairstow and Warner seems better for the team. It would be tough calls to make for a perfect playing XI as the middle order are struggling with the bat. Hyderabad’s major strength is their bowling unit as they had defended low totals last season. Williamson will be the key batsman, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan will be the core of bowling unit. Sandeep will be the key to swing the bowl in the powerplay and take those early wickets.

The young all-rounder has recently been selected in the world cup squad. This selection will boost his confidence to strike the bowl and prove himself worthy.
He played his first match in the previous game for SRH and was successful in taking two crucial wickets. He is a very good bowler in the death overs.
Chennai Super Kings:-
It has not many newcomers in their squad this season so we will be seeing the same team which played last season and won the title on a comeback note after 2 years. There will be a stance on Du Plessis opening or Rayudu will open along with Watson. Dhoni might go with 3 spinners as the condition is spin friendly, so we predict Harbhajan and Tahir to be featured in the playing XI.
