On Thursday, April 5, Sunrisers Hyderabad take on Chennai Super Kings in a match in the Indian Premier League at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Uppal, Hyderabad. The home team seems to be in disarray and will want to upgrade.

CSK, for their part, have been one of the most decorated sides in the history of the IPL. They will surely want to continue the momentum that they have in this game as well. They know they can take the attack to the SRH bowlers and won’t let them flourish. The latter seem to be under pressure and that will add on given that they will play at home.

SRH, however, know these conditions well and will strive to take the CSK batters to task. The home team will rely upon the services of their skipper Pat Cummins and the loyal Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who has been with the franchise for ten years now. For CSK, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Ruturaj Gaikwad will prove to be game-changers.Predicted Teams

SRH: Mayank Agarwal, Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, Jaydev Unadkat.

CSK: Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Rachin Ravindra, Ajinkya Rahane, Daryl Mitchell, Ravindra Jadeja, Sameer Rizvi, MS Dhoni (wk), Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Matheesha Pathirana, Mustafizur Rahman. 

Key Players

Mayank Agarwal (SRH): Karnataka and India opener Mayank Agarwal, who has been in a poor form lately, will do his best to turn things around in the game against CSK. Agarwal is known for hitting the ball a long way and also rotating the strike when the opportunity comes.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni (CSK): India’s legendary former captain and stumper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is one of the biggest players to watch out for among both squads. Dhoni is one of the finest finishers of the game, and a lot will be expected of him.

Match Prediction

CSK, despite being the visiting side, are the downright favourites. We expect them to do so and win this game quite comfortably in the end. They have a lot of top-quality players in their ranks and will be keen on picking up the two points on offer here in Hyderabad.
