After losing back to back games Chennai Super Kings are all set to host Sunrisers Hyderabad at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Tuesday.
In their previous match, Chennai lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore while chasing a below par total of 162 by 1 run despite MS Dhoni heroics who took the match to the last over but couldn't finish the game for his team.
After enjoying a major period of time at the top of points table Chennai were dethroned by Delhi Capitals on Monday night but MS Dhoni's team has an advantage of having an extra game in hand.
SRH, however, will be wary of the fact that Tuesday's game would be the last match for their in-form opener Johnny Bairstow, who will be leaving to attend England's training camp for the upcoming World Cup. Both David Warner and Bairstow have scored the bulk of the runs for the SRH and their middle-order has not performed -- a fact well known to them and their opponents.
The topic of concern for Hyderabad is the poor form of their skipper Kane Williamson, who didn't manage to score this season. CSK clash will be the perfect match for Williamson to step for his side as after Bairstow departure someone needs to fill up his big shoes.
What to expect, Match Predictions:
The finalists of IPL 2018 will meet each other again this year, the stakes are high for both the teams as it will going to be a neck to neck fight. The key player for this match for SRH will be Rashid Khan while Imran Tahir will be the Trump Card for Chennai Super Kings at the slow track of Chepauk.
Predicted Playing XI of CSK vs SRH
Probable Playing XI of SRH: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Vijay Shankar, Deepak Hooda, Yusuf Pathan, Rashid Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed
