Chennai Super Kings is the topper of IPL 2021 and Sunrisers Hyderabad the worst team of this season. Today these two teams are to compete on the ground of Sharjah. Talking about form and performance, it is clear that Chennai Super Kings have a huge upper hand. If Chennai Super Kings beat Hyderabad, then they will become the first team of this season to qualify for the playoffs. On the other hand, Hyderabad now has a chance to save credibility, not playoffs. The team would like to win the remaining matches and at least not finish the season in the last place in the points table.
Chennai and Hyderabad are being matched in Sharjah where this time the bowlers are proving to be very effective. Especially the spinners have stifled the batsmen’s nose. If 140 runs are scored on the Sharjah pitch, then you can win the match. Teams from Chennai and Hyderabad would also like to do the same.
Chennai has the upper hand over Hyderabad
There doesn’t seem to be any collision between Chennai and Hyderabad. The figures also confirm this. Chennai Super Kings have defeated Hyderabad in 11 matches and have lost only 4 matches. However, anything is possible in cricket. If Hyderabad plays well, Chennai can lose the match too.
Chennai players are in color
Talking about Chennai, its openers Rituraj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis are in color. Rayudu, Moeen Ali are also playing aggressive cricket. Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Bravo have also performed well. Although Dhoni, Sam Karen’s form is definitely a matter of concern. On the other hand Hyderabad’s batsmen and bowlers have disappointed. The team is now giving opportunities to young players in the middle order. Now it remains to be seen how the youth take their talent on the field.
Probable Playing XI for Hyderabad – Jason Roy, Wriddhiman Saha, Kane Williamson, Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma
