The Dream11 Indian Premier League is on a critical juncture and any slip-ups from here could be costly for all the sides. Up next is a contest between two former winners of the IPL in the Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Chennai Super Kings. The road looks tough for either side and this match would be a real bodyblow for the loser.
Sunrisers Hyderabad didn’t enjoy a perfect start to the season but came back well when the tournament progressed further. They have three wins in the last five and will look forward to bounce back after a narrow loss to Rajasthan Royals.
On the other hand, The Super Kings have to raise their game if they want to remain in the play-off race. They have only one win in the last five and are just two points above last placed-Kings XI side.Also, in their previous encounter in this year’s tournament, SRH edged CSK in a close encounter. A lot is at stake when the two teams go against each other in Dubai.
When: 13 October 2020
Where: Dubai International Stadium, Dubai, UAE
Time: 7:30 PM IST
Players to watch out for:
SRH: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Priyam Garg, and Rashid Khan
CSK: Faf du Plessis, Shane Watson, Sam Curran, and Ravindra Jadeja
SRH vs CSK Probable Playing XI:
SRH: David Warner (C), Jonny Bairstow (WK), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Vijay Shankar, Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, T Natarajan, Khaleel Ahmed, and Sandeep Sharma/Basil Thampi
CSK: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (C&WK), N Jagadeesan, Sam Curran, Ravindra Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Karn Sharma/Piyush Chawla, Deepak Chahar, and Shardul Thakur
Head-to-Head: 9-5 in favour of CSK
The pitch at the Dubai International Stadium has slowed down a bit. There is enough help for the seamers with movements off the surface keeping the batsmen on their toes. Spinners have pretty effective in the middle overs with the longer boundary dimensions coming to their rescue
Wickets in hand will be key for either side as it is important to bide their time in the middle before going for the attack. Although could play a part, both the captains will be looking to bat first as the pitch could get slower in the second innings. A score of around 170 runs would be a competitive score at this ground.
