Chennai: Defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK), who have faced consecutive defeats, will be desperate to return to winning ways against the strong Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match to be held on Sunday, April 28. CSK, which made a good start to the season under the leadership of new captain Ruturaj Gaikwad, has been defeated twice by Lucknow Super Giants in the last two matches. It is very rare to see CSK losing in their own ground, Chepauk Stadium, but thanks to the brilliant century of Marcus Stoinis, Lucknow Super Giants easily achieved the target of 210.

CSK is at fifth position in the table with four wins and the same number of losses in eight matches. Delhi Capitals and Gujarat Titans also have eight points. Therefore, CSK will be desperate to get back into its rhythm because now the race for the playoffs will intensify. CSK will take on third-placed Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday, who have broken the record of highest IPL score twice this season. But he had to face defeat in the last match.

CSK's batting revolves around captain Gaikwad and in-form Shivam Dubey. Gaikwad scored his second IPL century this season and Dubey also impressed by scoring another half-century. Ravindra Jadeja has also performed well with the bat but inconsistent performance from the top order remains a problem for the team. Rachin Ravindra and Daryl Mitchell are not able to score runs which is a matter of concern. Due to this, CSK was forced to reshuffle its batting order.

Talking about bowling, the team faced a lot of difficulty against Lucknow Super Giants and the dew in Chepauk made their spinners ineffective due to which the visiting team achieved the target of 213 runs. The fast bowlers took four wickets for the Lucknow team but the spinners were seen struggling and poor fielding dashed their hopes. Talking about Sunrisers Hyderabad, the confident team had to face its third defeat of the season at home against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Thursday. However, this will not hamper the rhythm of their batsmen and they will want to take advantage of every opportunity they get against CSK.

Sunrisers Hyderabad's top and middle order failed while chasing the target against RCB and head coach Daniel Vettori was forced to admit that batting in the second innings might not be wise. There is no change in the batting order of the visiting team. Not likely to happen. But Aiden Markram needs to score runs, who got out at single digits in the last two matches.

In bowling, senior fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been able to take only one wicket in the last three matches. With players like Umran Malik, Fazalhaq Farooqui and Akash Singh waiting to play, Sunrisers Hyderabad can think of giving them a chance, especially the Jammu fast bowler as he has the ability to bowl at speeds above 150 kmph. Keep.

The teams are as follows:

Chennai Super Kings: MS Dhoni (wicketkeeper), Ravindra Jadeja, Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad (captain), Ajinkya Rahane, Moeen Ali, Shivam Dubey, Rajvardhan Hungerkar, Mitchell Santner, Tushar Deshpande, Mathisha Pathirana, Simarjeet Singh, Prashant Solanki, Mahesh Tikshina, Sheikh Rashid. , Nishant Sindhu, Ajay Mondal, Mukesh Chaudhary, Rachin Ravindra, Shardul Thakur, Daryl Mitchell, Sameer Rizvi, Mustafizur Rahman and Avinash Rao Aravali.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Abhishek Sharma, Travis Head, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Aiden Markram, Abdul Samad, Nitish Reddy, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jaydev Unadkat, T Natarajan, Mayank Markandey, Umran Malik, Anmolpreet Singh, Glenn Phillips. , Rahul Tripathi, Washington Sundar, Upendra Yadav, Jhatvedh Subramanian, Sanveer Singh, Vijaykant Vyaskant, Fazalhaq Farooqui, Marco Yansen, Akash Maharaj Singh and Mayank Agarwal.
