Team News And Tournament So Far
Chennai Super Kings
For the first time in their history, Chennai Super Kings have lost their first four IPL games and are currently rooted to the bottom of the points table. It appears as though the leadership change is not going as intended, and they need to reassess their approach immediately. Though they won their previous match, they are still battling it out with MI to avoid a bottom placed finish.
Chennai Super Kings made three changes in their last game and are constantly on the lookout for the ideal combination. If Adam Milne recovers from his side injury,strain he will almost certainly replace Mukesh Choudhary in the eleven. Mooen Ali, Dwane Pretorius, and Mukesh Choudhary came in for Adam Milne, Devon Conway, and Mitchell Santner in their match against Lucknow.
In another major blow to the side, their most expensive recruit - Deepak Chahar has now been ruled out of the whole IPL season due to his niggling injuries, leaving CSK short of genuine quality in their pace attack.
Chennai have won only 2 matches this season, and will be desperate to win this one to get their play-off campaign underway.
Chennai Super Kings Playing XI (Predicted) Against Punjab Kings :- Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja(c), MS Dhoni(w), Shivam Dube, Dwayne Bravo, Dwaine Pretorius, Adam Milne, Tushar Deshpande
Sunrisers Hyderabad's top four batsmen were removed for single-digit scores at 37/5 in their 211-run chase against Rajasthan Royals. Aiden Markram's (57* runs), Wahington Sundar's (40 runs), and Romario Shepherd's (24 runs) contributions helped them reach 149/8 in 20 overs. Players with more experience, such as Kane Williamson, Nicholas Pooran, and Rahul Tripathi, must step up with the bat.
Bhuvaneshwar Kumar bowled brilliantly for 4-0-29-1 and was unlucky not to earn additional wickets owing to no-balls. Romario Shepherd, Umran Malik, and T Natarajan each grabbed five wickets but came at a cost. The spin department is mainly reliant on Washington Sundar, with assistance from Abdul Samad, Aiden Markram, and Abhishek Sharma.
SRH completely changed their season around after their 3rd match, with 5 consecutive wins to drive them straight to the top 2 of the table. They are the form team of the tournament, and will take some stopping. They lost their last match, but Umran Malik bowled a dream spell and took 5 wickets, and is now their hot favourite to compete for the prestigious Purple Cap.
SunRisers Hyderabad’s Predicted XI:- Abhishek Sharma, Rahul Tripathi, Kane Williamson (c), Nicholas Pooran (wk), Aiden Markram, Abdul Samad
Betting Preview, Picks And Prediction
To Win The Match
CSK are the favourites to win the match with odds of 1.80 as per Dafabet. This is primarily because CSK are still considered to have one of the most balanced squads in the league. Despite losing 6 of their matches so far, the strength of CSK cannot be undermined and they are still favourites to win this match. SRH had won 5 in a row before they lost their last match by a narrow margin, and they have odds of 2.00 to win this match.
Top Team Batsman
Young Ruturaj Gaekwad is the favourite to be Chennai Super Kings’ top batsman in this match with odds of 3.25. He is followed by Robin Utthappa at 3.50.
SRH captain Kane Williamson is unsurprisingly the favourite to be their top batsman in this match with odds of 3.60. His opening partner Markram has odds of 4.00. Nicholas Pooran has odds of 5.50 to be the top batsman.
Highest Opening Partnership
Chennai are now reliant on Gaekwad and Uthappa to fire, which is an untested partnership but still have a lot of potential, and have odds of 1.80. SRH are now expected to struggle in the opening department after the departure of David Warner, and are still trying out new combinations and have odds of 1.90.
Top Team Bowler
Dwayne Bravo is CSK’s favourite to be the top bowler with odds of just 3.25, a testament to his wicket taking ability in the death overs. He has been one of the most prolific bowlers in the IPL in recent years. He is followed by Adam Milne at 3.60 and KM Asif at 4.75.
Umran Malik is SRH’s new favourite to be the top team bowler at 3.25, followed by Natarajan at 3.75.
Total Runs In The Match
Odds of there being more than 339.5 runs in this match are 1.83, as per Dafabet This seems highly achievable as both these teams have some brilliant batsmen and have scored plenty of runs this season.
Individual Player Betting
- Robin Uthappa to score more than 24.5 runs has odds of 1.83 as per Dafabet, which is a tempting bet as he would like to give a quick start to his team as always. Kane Williamson to score more than 26.5 runs has odds of 1.83 , which is a tempting bet as he is their most consistent batsman.
- CSK to hit the most sixes has odds of 1.66, which is understandable as they have Dhoni and Moeen Ali, along with Devon Conway and Ravindra Jadeja, who can clear the ropes with ease. SRH to hit the most sixes has odds of 2.62, which could be attractive odds, especially if their openers get firing.
- Umran Malik to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.10, while Bravo to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.30, which is attractive as he is in form.
