The 29th match of 2020 IPL between the Superkings and Sunrisers will take place at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. This match is the beginning of the second phase matches at this IPL as all the teams had completed 7 out of the 14 matches. This will be the second face-off between Dhoni-led Chennai and Warner’s Hyderabad. In the last match played between them at the same stadium, CSK faced a 7-run defeat, with Rashid Khan’s brilliant performance for SRH.
Discussing on the strategies, CSK is now at a crucial situation in the IPL with 5 losses out of the 7 matches and it’s the first time they are being in the lower half of the point table. CSK is appearing against SRH after the loss of two consecutive matches and it’s necessary for them to make at least 5 winnings in the upcoming 7 matches to keep their playoff dreams alive. CSK’s bowling department is doing a fair job, but the batting side is not consistent except for Faf du Plessis. The skipper MS Dhoni himself was not able to make smashing innings till now. Chennai had to give an all-round performance with a special show from the skipper to win today’s crucial match.
SRH is in a better position as compared to CSK, the team had 3 wins over the 7 matches. Coming to the individual analytics SRH is also under the crucial situation with 4 failures. Sunrisers Hyderabad is at the fifth spot at the points table. Like CSK, SRH had also faced defeat in the last match against Rajasthan Royals. SRH is having good performances from both batting and bowling departments. Even though the team is seen likely more dependable on the openers, but the mid-order also had helped them in the previous matches. Rashid Khan brings out a stunning performance and he remains the key bowler for SRH.
Our Prediction: We are expecting MS Dhoni’s CSK will make their comeback as it is very necessary to keep their playoff dreams alive.
