After 6 day break MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings are back tonite in the Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) The Dubai International Cricket Stadium will host Match 14 of Dream11 Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 when Chennai Super Kings (CSK) take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
CSK’s IPL 2020 campaign is yet to get properly on track with 2 defeats in last 2 games. While CSK kicked off well with a win over Mumbai Indians in the season opener, they lost their next two games against Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Delhi Capitals (DC). The good part for CSK is both Ambati Rayudu & Dwayne Bravo have recovered from their injuries and are good to play.
Coming to SRH, the David Warner-led side did not enjoy a solid start to their season as they lost against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). But SRH halted the two-match losing streak, beating DC in their third game of the tournament.
As both the teams seek their second win of the season, the CSK-SRH clash promises to be a mouth-watering affair. Here are our picks who could decide the outcome of the match.
With both the teams eyeing their second win, here are your fantasy picks for the Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad games
He kicked off his IPL 2020 campaign in style, scoring a match-winning 70 off 48 balls against MI. But his side sorely missed his solid presence in the middle in the next two games as he could not feature in the playing XI due to an injury. With CSK looking to bounce back and register another win, the availability of Ambati Rayudu will be a big boon for CSK.
The New Zealand skipper was not in SRH’s playing XI for the first two games, but as soon as he was picked, Kane Williamson made his presence felt by scoring a well-compiled 41 off 26 balls against DC. The right-hander may not possess a power game like Warner or Bairstow, but he is extremely crafty when it comes to finding gaps and keeping the scorecard ticking.
Faf du Plessis
Three games, two fifty-plus scores and a score of 43 in the third game. Faf du Plessis has performed well with the bat in all the three CSK games so far and the right-hander will be key to CSK’s success as they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad.
By his own standards, Rashid Khan did not enjoy a good time with the ball against RCB and KKR. However, the SRH leg-spinner put up a match-winning show against DC, scalping three wickets while conceding just 14 runs. Rashid will once again hold the key as SRH take on CSK.
Deepak Chahar largely bowls a majority of his overs in the powerplay, and while he has not had many wickets against his name so far, the right-arm pacer could set the tone for CSK. However, he will face a stiff challenge bowling against the SRH top order of Warner, Bairstow and Williamson/Manish Pandey.
It was a delight to watch how he nailed those yorkers against DC. T Natarajan, who has featured in all three SRH games till now, conceded just 25 runs and scalped a wicket as SRH defended the 162-run total against Shreyas Iyer and Co. The SRH camp will hope that the left-arm pacer will have another good outing against CSK.
