New Delhi. In the 44th match of IPL 2021, the teams of Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad will face each other on Thursday. This match will be played at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni), Chennai Super Kings is at the top of the IPL points table. Sunrisers have lost eight out of ten matches and the team is at the last position. Both Chennai and Hyderabad (CSK vs SRH) have won their last match.
Chennai, under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, have almost confirmed their place in the playoffs by registering three consecutive wins. Ravindra Jadeja, who scored 22 runs in eight balls, was the cornerstone of Sunday’s last-ball two-wicket win against Kolkata Knight Riders. Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad have given the team a good start while Moeen Ali, Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu also add depth to the batting. Gaikwad scored 40, 38 and 88 not out.
Chennai’s bowling seems to be their weak link and Sunrisers can take advantage of it. West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo was rested against Kolkata who will return in place of Sam Curran.
