Indian Premier League 2020: Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Chennai Super Kings, Match No. 29

Match predictions

Winners Prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad failed to win the match last night despite having an upper hand at the half-way stage in the chase. SRH lacks an incisive pace bowler in the absence of Bhuvi in the XI.  CSK looks down and out at the moment with their batting unit struggling to chase any score. CSK`s bowling has fared better in restricting the opposition to just 160+ totals. We expect SRH to take advantage of the weakness of CSK`s batting line-up and win this match. 

Score Prediction: Dubai pitch ash slightly slowed down and the scores have dropped down from 180s to 160s in the last few matches.  We expect the average score to be around 160-170 runs in this match. 

Toss Prediction: Teams batting first has won 10 out of the 12 matches played here and pitch is expected to slow down in the second innings of the match. So batting first will be best option here. 

Predicted Playing XI

SUNRISERS HYDERABAD: David Warner (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Priyam Garg, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, \Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, T Natarajan 

CHENNAI SUPER KINGS: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (c & wk), N Jagadeesan, Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo/Imran Tahir, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Karn Sharma
