SRH vs CSK Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Fantasy Cricket Tips – IPL 2024 18th Match | SRH vs CSK Dream11 Prediction Today | Hyderabad Pitch Report

523. It was the highest total aggregate runs scored in an IPL match over 16 seasons when Hyderabad hosted the game between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians a week ago. It’s all ready to host the stars-studded clash between the Sunrisers and the Chennai Super Kings.

Sunrisers Hyderabad have produced an aggressive start to the tournament with rock solid batting performances so far. But still they are placed at the lower-middle part of the points table with a single win in three games so far. A win would be all they want here at their home ground before playing three away matches.

After starting one more season in trademark style with two wins in initial two games, CSK come into this game after a failure against Delhi Capitals. But CSK fans won’t like to forget that game since their favourite MS Dhoni once again proved age is just a number. Dhoni and company will definitely give a resilient fight to the hosts and hence the world waits for another astonishing encounter in match number 18.

IPL 2024 18th Match: SRH vs CSK Possible Playing XI

T Natarajan had a niggle after the first match but is likely to return in place of Unadkat.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: 1. Mayank Agarwal, 2. Travis Head (OS), 3. Abhishek Sharma, 4. Aiden Markram (OS), 5. Heinrich Klaasen (OS), 6. Abdul Samad, 7. Shahbaz Ahmed, 8. Pat Cummins (c, OS), 9. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 10. Mayank Markande 11. Umran Malik/Washington Sundar, 12. T Natarajan/J Unadkat

CSK’s leading wicket taker Mustafizur Rahman has flown to Bangladesh to sort his US Work Visa for the 2024 T20 World Cup and hence is set to miss the SRH game. CSK may go back to Theekshana or introduce Santner for the first time in this season.

Chennai Super Kings: 1. Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), 2. Rachin Ravindra (OS), 3. Ajinkya Rahane 4. Daryl Mitchell (OS), 5. Shivam Dube, 6. Sameer Rizvi, 7. Ravindra Jadeja, 8. MS Dhoni, 9. Mitchell Santner/Maheesh Theekshana (OS), 10. Deepak Chahar, 11. Tushar Deshpande, 12. Matheesha Pathirana (OS)

Fantasy Cricket Tips for the 18th Match of IPL 2024: Key Players to Watch/Key Stats for SRH vs CSK

Sunrisers Hyderabad:

  • Abhishek Sharma has looked in superb form so far. He has scored 124 runs striking at 200 in three innings. While playing against CSK, he has scored 199 in six games with SR of 141.
  • Sunrisers top run scorer Heinrich Klaasen has been in beast mode since last year and this IPL is no different for him. He has scored 167 at a strike rate of 219.73 thus far. He also has good numbers at the venue (254 runs in five innings).
  • Mayank Markande could play a decent role in the middle overs phase. At Hyderabad he has taken 10 wickets in seven innings. It is one of his favourite grounds to bowl at. 
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar has gone wicketless in all three games. Is this the day he picks up wickets? For SRH, he has taken just nine wickets in 15 innings against CSK at an average of 41.56.
  • If T Natarajan plays he would be one of the threats for the CSK batting lineup. Against CSK he has taken eight wickets in four innings. He did also look good in their first game this season with figures of 3-32.
  • Gaikwad has been dismissed by left-arm seam in all three matches so far in IPL 2024. Natarajan has a good head-to-head record against the opener, with overall figures of 2/27 in 17 balls.

Chennai Super Kings:

  • Captain Ruturaj Gaikwad hasn’t performed up to his reputations thus far. While playing in opposition of Sunrisers, 270 runs in five innings with SR 148 satisfies the fact that he likes to play against them.
  • Another CSK opener Rachin Ravindra gave two fantastic starts [37(15) & 46(20)] to the CSK innings in the powerplay. The talisman would again like to break the bowlers’ rhythm and set the tone on a potential batting friendly wicket.
  • Another kiwi all-rounder Daryl Mitchell is all set to entertain the fans with his ‘down the ground’ big hits against Daniel Vettori side. He also adds value with his medium-pace bowling if opposition gets going against the spinners.
  • While playing against SRH, MS Dhoni has scored 551 runs striking at 155.2. If he gets to bat in a very deep CSK batting line-up, he would surely re-beguile the viewers and CSK fandom.
  • Deepak Chahar has economy of 6.84 and has nine wickets in 10 games against SRH. He would aim to get through the top order in the powerplay itself. He has taken seven wickets in three innings at Hyderabad.
  • Matheesha Pathirana led the CSK bowling attack with nine wickets in their last game against DC. He could prove to be a threat for Sunrisers with his yorkers.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head to head : Matches 20, CSK 15, SRH 5.
