Both Dhoni and Warner would be eager to secure a win in today's IPL match

Match Preview – SRH vs CSK

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will today kickstart the second half of the IPL 2020 in Dubai. Both SRH and CSK will look to find some rhythm with a win in today’s IPL match. Led by David Warner, SRH has had a mixed season with three wins and four losses in seven IPL matches so far. In the last IPL encounter against Rajasthan Royals, SRH lost the game after being in a position of strength.

On the other hand, CSK has had one of their most disappointing seasons with a mere two wins in the seven matches in IPL 2020. The Dhoni-led side has failed to find any momentum in the tournament so far. With an important clash lined up against SRH today, CSK would aim to make a fresh start with a win in today’s IPL encounter vs SRH. Before we look at who might win today’s IPL match, here’s a look at what can be expected from the fixture tonight.

 

What to Expect – Pitch and Ground Conditions?

SRH vs CSK IPL match is scheduled to be played at Dubai International Stadium in Dubai. As per the trend observed in the last few matches, the pitches in the UAE are beginning to offer more assistance to the spinners. With huge boundaries, it could be a relatively low-scoring fixture with both the teams eyeing to plug-in the loopholes in their batting department.

Chennai Super Kings has been consistent in getting the better of SRH in their last few encounters in the IPL. However, on Tuesday. it will be a different ball game. While SRH would aim to better their previous IPL record against CSK, the ‘Men in Yellow’ will be desperate to find their IPL mojo back as quickly as possible.

In an otherwise awful season for CSK, Faf du Plessis has been one of the few shining stars for the Chennai-based franchise, After failing in the last encounter against RCB, Du Plessis will be expected to come good and continue his IPL form for CSK. Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja will also be in focus to deliver for the teams’ cause in such an awful situation.

In the Sunrisers Hyderabad camp, there are problems aplenty concerning their batting department. Except for the likes of Jonny Bairstow and David Warner, the SRH middle-order has failed to score runs consistently at a good pace. Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson will be required to bring all his experience into play in today’s IPL match against CSK in Dubai.

While both teams have lost their last IPL match at the same ground, it should be a great contest for the fans to witness in the IPL on Tuesday. However, despite a poor track record against Chennai, SRH look like a better team on the paper and is likely to win today’s IPL match. On their previous meeting in IPL 2020, SRH secured their second win of the tournament with a slender margin of 7 runs. If all goes as per plans, SRH will come out as winners in today’s IPL match against Dhoni’s CSK.
