CSK vs SRH: Sunrisers Hyderabad, the worst-placed team of the current 2021 season of the IPL, will take on the No. 1 team so far and 3-time IPL winner Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the 22nd match of IPL 14 at the Arun Jaitley Stadium here on Wednesday. Hyderabad will face the challenge of stopping Chennai’s winning order and by completing it, their confidence will also increase. Currently, Hyderabad is in 8th and final position with 2 points from 4 matches with 4 defeats and one win, while Chennai is at number 1 with one loss and 4 wins from 5 matches.
The good thing for Hyderabad is to come out of a dull pitch like Chennai. She has played her last five matches in Chennai, of which she has won only one. Hyderabad is expected to perform better on the Delhi pitch, which is considered to be batting friendly, although the performance of both the teams so far, it would not be wrong to say that CSK will have a lot of weight in the match.
Hyderabad is losing their previous match, while Chennai had beaten No. 1 Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) badly. Batting, especially thanks to Ravindra Jadeja’s knock of 37 runs in the final over of the innings and taking 3 wickets in the bowling, Chennai had a big win against Bengaluru by 69 runs. At the same time, Hyderabad lost to Delhi in the Super Over. Almost all the Chennai players, including Ravindra Jadeja, are in form, whether it is batting, bowling or fielding. This is the reason why she is winning the match continuously.
Young batsman Ruturaj Gaikwad and veteran batsman Faf du Plessis are giving a good start to the team, giving the team a good score. Chennai has batted first in 4 out of 5 matches and won 3 matches, scoring above 180 in each match. In these four matches, Chennai has scored huge scores of 188, 188, 220, and 191 respectively.
The point is not only to make a big score, but also to defend it well in which the bowlers have done well. In particular, the role of fast bowler Deepak Chahar has been important. Deepak has taken 8 wickets in 2 defending bouts. Apart from him, Sam Karen, Shardul Thakur and Moin Ali have also bowled well.
On the other hand, the Hyderabad team has not yet achieved the rhythm in batting and bowling for which it is known.
Barring the top order, the batting of Hyderabad does not seem to have the power to win the match. In such a situation, the responsibility of winning the team is seen in the top order batsmen David Warner, Johnny Bairstow, and Kane Williamson. Even the bowling has not shown the edge, which was able to tease the batsmen of the opposition camp. Talk of stopping the opposition batsmen on low scores or defending the score, Hyderabad bowling has so far failed. In such a situation, now he has a challenge of Chennai Super Kings. If she wins this match and gets 2 valuable points then she will definitely gain a lot of confidence.
