IPL: Match 29, Chennai Super Kings v Sunrisers Hyderabad, Match Preview, Details, Pitch Report, Prediction

Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad

After the double header Thursday, we’ve reached the 29th game of this IPL. The teams have started to settle in and find their perfect combinations. This IPL has already witnessed quite a few close games and this clash promises to add to that list.


Sunrisers Hyderabad is yet to win in three matches against Chennai Super Kings played at CSK’s home ground in the IPL. Visiting teams have struggled at Chepauk, where CSK has won 19 of their last 23 games.

The pitch is again assisting spin this season, with an economy of 8.13 from spinners compared to the fast bowlers’ economy of 10.66. Sunrisers lacks depth in their spin attack, playing Washington Sundar and Mayank Markande instead of Adil Rashid and Akeal Hosein.

Sunrisers’ Harry Brook scored a century against Kolkata Knight Riders but was circumspect against spin. SRH has had the lowest powerplay run-rate of 7.13 among all teams, while CSK has the highest with 9.86. So, Sunrisers may need to change their approach and attack CSK’s quicks early on to avoid leaving themselves too much to do against the spinners in Chennai.
