Time: 7:30 PM IST


Kane Williamson will be going against Chennai Super Kings ex-turned-current captain MS Dhoni.

Ravindra Jadeja yesterday handed back the captaincy reins to MS Dhoni as he wanted to focus more on his game.

Both these sides are coming off losses in their previous matches but Sunrisers have the upper edge in today’s fixture.

They have the best pace bowling attack in this season of the IPL and they are quite a dangerous side.

Sunrisers however, lost their last game to Gujarat Titans although it was a high-scoring contest.

Chennai on the other hand, lost to Punjab Kings by a close margin of 11 runs.

Now, with MS Dhoni back as captain, it will be very essential for CSK to clock up some points so as to be able to remain in the race for playoffs.

SRH are pretty comfortable in the top 4 but they also need to get back to winning ways.
