Sunrisers Hyderabad will be looking forward to secure a victory and get back on the winning track when they take on Chennai Super Kings at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.
Sunrisers have failed miserably in the last three games and their batting hasn’t been able to perform and appears to be in frenzy. They have been mostly dependent on the destructive opening pair of Johnny Bairstow and David Warner
The Kane Williamson-led side are currently standing at the sixth spot in the points table, and would be desperately hoping to get a win under their bag and move up the table.
Chennai, on the other hand, is sitting pretty at the top of the points table with 14 points from eight games. The Men in Yellow will look to confirm their spot in the playoffs against the Sunrisers.
In the batting department, Suresh Raina, Faf du Plessis and captain M.S. Dhoni have all been among the runs while the bowling has also looked pretty strong with Deepak Chahar, Imran Tahir and Harbhajan Singh taking the responsibility and picking up wickets at regular intervals.
