SRH vs CSK Preview Dream11. Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Chennai Super Kings Preview Dream11 Prediction

Co-written by N.S. Shekhawat

The two finalists of IPL 2018 go head-to-head. However, their recent form has been totally opposite.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have lost their last three games. Despite David Warner and Jonny Bairstow doing a great job, SRH are sixth in the IPL 2019 Points Table. Their middle order has failed completely, playing as if they have no idea how to bat. Team management needs to make clear the role of the middle order, and perhaps bring back the experienced Yusuf Pathan, whose exclusion last game didn’t help the team improve.

Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, have lost just one game so far in IPL 2019. They overcame KKR in Kolkata for the first time in three seasons, and now find themselves very close to playoffs qualification. MS Dhoni is a fantastic example of getting the most out of your resources, positioning this team as the team to beat yet again in IPL. Will they win again?

Key to a SRH win

SRH lost two wickets in an over on two separate occasions in their last game vs DC. From 101/2, SRH collapsed to 116, which is a massive concern. On paper, the middle order is certainly not incapable, but they need better team unity and cohesion in overcoming CSK’s efficient spin bowling. The top three of David Warner (picked in Australia’s World Cup squad), Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson will be crucial to the cause, and they have to bat without fear of what’s to come. Will they play their natural games? What can the likes of Vijay Shankar and Manish Pandey (if picked) deliver in the middle order?

Also, while the batting looks in bad shape, the bowling doesn’t. Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been doing a good job in recent games, and can lead the way for the remainder of the bowling attack to follow. With Mohammad Nabi likely to miss out, the likes of of Vijay Shankar and Yusuf Pathan (if picked) will be vital in providing good overs that also support the important Khaleel Ahmed (3/30 last game) and Sandeep Sharma.

Key points for SRH:

  • Set and stick to a planned batting line up: 3. Williamson, 4. Shankar, 5. Pandey, 6. Y Pathan.
  • The length of time the top three bat will be crucial.
  • Bat first if they win the toss. Batting first could remove the pressure of chasing, which can help SRH’s stuttering middle order.

Key to a CSK win

MS Dhoni, arguably the best captain in IPL history, has again proved his worth. CSK are delivering as a bowling unit, with Imran Tahir leading the way superbly. He is their trump card, taking four wickets in a superb spell to derail KKR last game. With Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur providing value, CSK can look to get the better of SRH’s top order which then exposes the misfiring middle order to CSK’s in-form attack.

Also, it would have been pleasing for CSK to see Suresh Raina in the runs last game. With Jadeja (if picked) also a key down the order along with the likes of MS Dhoni and Mitchell Santner, the onus is on CSK’s top order to set a platform. Faf du Plessis has made a good start to his campaign, but more is needed from Shane Watson and Ambati Rayudu, who have to perform more frequently.

Possible Playing 11

David Warner believed his team’s collapse of 8/15 was down to a lack of experience. Manish Pandey and Yusuf Pathan should come back into the XI.

SRH: 1. David Warner, 2. Jonny Bairstow, 3. Kane Williamson (c), 4. Vijay Shankar, 5. Manish Pandey, 6. Yusuf Pathan, 7. Abhishek Sharma/Deepak Hooda, 8. Rashid Khan, 9. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 10. Sandeep Sharma, 11. Khaleel Ahmed

Ravindra Jadeja was expensive with the ball last game, but his batting contributions are invaluable for CSK. Shane Watson is having a disappointing season, but CSK are in a position to stick with him given their top-of-the-table standing.

CSK: 1. Shane Watson, 2. Faf du Plessis, 3. Suresh Raina, 4. Ambati Rayudu, 5. MS Dhoni (c & wk), 6. Kedar Jadhav, 7. Ravindra Jadeja, 8. Mitchell Santner, 9. Deepak Chahar, 10. Shardul Thakur, 11. Imran Tahir
