Chennai vs Hyderabad : Fantasy Tips, Probable XI, Match Prediction

The 14th match of the ongoing 13th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) is going to be played between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Chennai Super Kings are coming back from a 7-day break after their loss against Delhi Capitals whereas Sunrisers Hyderabad are back after a win over the same Delhi team.

Match Prediction

CSK aren't having good outing so far in the tournament. Their batting hasn't clicked apart from Faf du Plessis and Ambati Rayudu. Sunrisers however will be confident after their win against Delhi in their previous match.

I will be surprised if CSK dominate SRH in this match. I am backing Hyderabad to come out victorious against Chennai.

Player to Watch Out : Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson

Chennai Super Kings will be happy to have the return of Ambati Rayudu who was their star in their victory against Mumbai in their first match. One among Murali Vijay or Ruturaj Gaikwad will have to make way for Rayudu and I guess it will be Gaikwad who will have to miss out. Dwayne Bravo is believed to be fit to play. In case Bravo is fit, Josh Hazlewood might have to be benched.

The return of Kane Williamson was a huge boost to the Hyderabad lineup as they defeated Delhi in their last match. Williamson at number 3 means Manish Pandey will bat at 4 and that has somewhat covered for the fragile middle/lower order of Hyderabad. Rashid Khan chipping in with wickets willl probably build that belief in their bowling attack.
