CSK vs SRH Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report: IPL 2023 Match 29

CSK vs SRH Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report: IPL 2023 Match 29 | CHE vs SRH Dream11 Prediction Today | Chepauk Pitch Report

If Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) thought facing spin was tricky earlier in IPL 2023, a whole other challenge is likely to be coming their way at Chepauk. Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are aiming to consolidate their place in the top four, and have the perfect chance to do so at home against an SRH side that has had their issues when playing spin.

However, the IPL almost always throws up curveballs. If CSK believe they can win just by turning up, they may have another thing coming with SRH having a number of excellent players in their ranks. With MS Dhoni as the leader, though, expect CSK to be switched on and ready to go after their great win against RCB under pressure.

For SRH, it’s go time. They can either join the other five teams on six points on be stuck with KKR on four. There was plenty of optimism about their chances before the start of the season, so whether they can translate that into positive results is the challenge.

Match Details

  • Location: MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai.
  • Time: 7:30pm (IST).
  • Last match for both teams: CSK beat RCB by eight runs, SRH lost to MI by 14 runs.

IPL 2023 Match 29: CSK vs SRH Possible XIs

Matheesha Pathirana was excellent at the death against RCB, so much so that “Baby Malinga” received praise from the great Lasith Malinga. However, CSK may wish to go with another spin option in Mitchell Santner.

Chennai Super Kings possible XII (with possible impact player substitutes in italic bold): 1. Ruturaj Gaikwad, 2. Devon Conway (OS), 3. Ajinkya Rahane, 4. Shivam Dube, 5. Ambati Rayudu, 6.

Similarly, SRH have the option of overseas spinners in Akeal Hosein or Adil Rashid. Also, Hosein provides a handy left-hand batting option.

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Chennai Super Kings:

  • Devon Conway hammered 83 last game against RCB and 85 against SRH in IPL 2022.
  • Ruturaj Gaikwad has struck 235 runs at an average of 58.75 and strike rate of 154.61 against SRH. He has scored 33 runs off 13 balls against Umran Malik (no dismissal) and 21 off 22 balls against Bhuvneshwar Kumar (no dismissal).
  • Ajinkya Rahane is in superb touch. He is striking at 195.45 this season.
  • Ravindra Jadeja has a terrible record against SRH (18 inns, 5 wickets, avg. 76.00, econ. 7.81), but he will be key against their long list of right-handers. The spinner was excellent in the last game at Chepauk, where he took 2/21 against RR and spun the ball sharply.
  • Maheesh Theekshana has been expensive so far in IPL 2023, but expect him to test SRH. Harry Brook has been dismissed twice by spin so far this season at a strike rate of just 100.

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • Rahul Tripathi strikes at 156.41 in four matches at Chepauk (122 runs, avg. 30.50). In ten matches overall against CSK, he strikes at 149.68 with 232 runs to his name (avg. 29.00).
  • Aiden Markram is crucial to SRH’s hopes. In 19 T20s this year, the SRH captain has made 562 runs at an average of 37.47 and strike rate of 140.
  • Abhishek Sharma has a vital role to play against CSK’s spinners. Since the start of 2022, Abhishek has scored 187 runs at an average of 26.7 and strike rate of 162.6 against spin.
  • Washington Sundar needs to step up for SRH. This is the game he can. In T20s since the start of 2022, Devon Conway has been dismissed four times in 103 balls against offspin at a strike rate of just 115.53.
  • Mayank Markande in IPL 2023: 3 inns, 6 wickets, avg. 12.83, econ. 6.41. Also, he has taken three wickets in as many games against CSK.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 19, CSK 14, SRH 5.
  • Harry Brook scored a century two games ago. But, Chepauk will be a bigger test given he strikes at just 100 against spin this season.
  • T Natarajan has dismissed Ruturaj Gaikwad twice in 17 balls in the IPL (27 runs).
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar has had Ajinkya Rahane’s number in the IPL. In 103 balls, Kumar has dismissed Rahane six times for just 90 runs.
  • Since the start of 2021, Shivam Dube has been dismissed four times in 63 balls against high pace (82 runs). So, SRH may bowl Umran Malik (if picked) to him.
  • Heinrich Klaasen in T20s in 2023: 13 inns, 402 runs, avg. 50.25, SR 168.91.

MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk, Chennai Pitch Report and Weather

The Chepauk surface took some significant turn in the CSK-RR match. Pace bowlers have generally been expensive on this ground this season. Expect this to be the case once again in this match, especially given SRH’s worries against spin.

A hot and clear night is forecast.
