CSK vs SRH: Chennai Super Kings are in the 2nd spot this season and have hardly put a foot wrong. The three losses they’ve faced in 10 games played have been down to bad luck. MS Dhoni has been brilliant as the captain as well as a finisher for the franchise here, and he will be looking to seek the support of other experienced international players. With the team back to full strength as Dwayne Bravo too returned from his injury, they are once again the favourites to the first side to seal their berth in the playoffs.
Meanwhile, SunRisers Hyderabad have played only 9 games and have won five out of them. The team has got arguably the best batting lineup in the entire tournament, and it’s not a surprise the top leading scorers of this campaign are their openers. David Warner has come to India with redemption, and he has been incredible so far as he averages 73. If he keeps this form up, it won’t be a long shot to see them being one of the first team to qualify for the playoffs this season.
