CSK vs SRH, Toss Update: Chennai Super Kings Win Toss, Opt To Bat First Against Sunrisers Hyderabad At Dubai. Both teams have decided to make one change in the respective teams. In CSK, Chawla comes in for Jagadeesan. In SRH, Nadeem replaces Abhishek Sharma in playing XI.
When Chennai Super Kings (CSK) take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Dubai International Stadium on Tuesday, they will look to regain their lost form. Three-time IPL winner Chennai have won only two matches in the last seven matches.
It has never happened in the history of IPL that Chennai failed to reach the playoffs as captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has managed to take the team to the top-4 every time, but this time it seems quite difficult to do so in the yellow army.
It has to be seen what charismatic captain Dhoni does from here. It is necessary that his batsmen score run. In the last match, Dhoni also admitted that there are many flaws in his batting that needs to be worked on and also what more changes, improvements Dhoni and team management can make to get a better result. Apart from Shane Watson and Faf Du Plessis, no other batsmen are in form in CSK.
Ambati Rayudu has not been able to do anything special since his return. N. Jagadishan was given a chance in the last match in place of Kedar Jadhav. He batted with restraint and also played very slow.
MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo have also failed to play the kind of innings that the team needs. All these concerns are a big problem for Chennai which needs to be sorted out as soon as possible.
For Sunrisers Hyderabad, Jonny Bairstow and David Warner are in form and Manish Pandey also scored 54 runs in the last match. A senior and experienced batsman like Kane Williamson is also with the team. It is important for Hyderabad that if any one of these four batsmen score runs and keeps batting till the end, so that it becomes easy for them to reach a respectable total.
