Dream XI Team SRH vs CSK IPL 2019 – Cricket Predictions Tips For Todays IPL Match Hyderabad vs Chennai at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad: Having missed the World Cup bus, Ambati Rayudu will be aiming to make a statement when a marauding Chennai Super Kings take on a desperate Sunrisers Hyderabad in an IPL encounter on Wednesday. The World Cup snub to Rayudu is the sole disappointment in an otherwise superb tournament so far for Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s men as they are just a win away from clinching the playoff berth. The toss will take place at 7:30. We are 20-odd minutes away from the toss. CSK win toss, opt to bat. MS Dhoni not playing Suresh Raina leads CSK. SRH beat CSK by six wickets.
Sunrisers Hyderabad (Playing XI): David Warner, Jonny Bairstow(w), Kane Williamson(c), Vijay Shankar, Yusuf Pathan, Deepak Hooda, Rashid Khan, Shahbaz Nadeem, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, K Khaleel Ahmed
Chennai Super Kings (Playing XI): Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina(c), Sam Billings(w), Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Karn Sharma, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir
The Hyderabad right-hander had found some form with a half-century against Rajasthan Royals and the flamboyant batsman, who was seen as a sure-shot No.4 in the national team, may just channelise the disappointment against a faltering Sunrisers. While CSK sit pretty on top of the table with 14 points from eight games, Sunrisers’ have suddenly gone off the boil with a hat-trick of defeats, including an inexplicable batting collapse against Delhi Capitals in their last game.
What has been CSK’s strength despite an ageing team has exactly been Sunrisers’ bane in the matches that they have played so far. While CSK have had plans A, B and C for various situations, Sunrisers have failed miserably whenever their opening pair of Jonny Bairstow and David Warner have failed to perform.
Barring Warner’s 400 runs and Bairstow’s 304 runs, the next best is World Cup bound Vijay Shankar’s 132 runs.
The basic problem has been the middle-order where Manish Pandey (54 in six games), Deepak Hooda (47 in six games) and Yusuf Pathan (32 in six games) have been miserable.
On the other hand, Dhoni has played various combinations depending on surfaces and more often than not, his teammates have responded pretty well. Whether it was Harbhajan Singh on a very slow Chepauk track or the restrictive Mitchell Santner in away games, most of Dhoni’s strategies have paid off brilliantly.
Time: 8 PM IST
Venue: Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad
Dream XI Predictions:
Wicketkeeping: It will be a tricky choice to pick between the two stalwart keepers – MS Dhoni or Jonny Bairstow, as both are known to lit the stage on fire with their batting explouts. But keeping in-form Dhoni in mind, it will be too hard to resist the temptation of including him in your fantasy XI. Also, Dhoni’s ability to guide his bowlers from behind the wicket makes him a valuable asset for the side.
Batting: Both Hyderbad and Chennai boast of some of the biggest names of world cricket ranging from – David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar. As the Hyderabad track is known to assist the batters a little more – it would be ideal to pick batsmen who can dominate from the word go.
Bowling: Keeping the nature of Hyderabad strip in mind, the role of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Deepak Chahar become very crucial for their respective sides. Imran Tahir can be picked up as the sole spinner in the side keeping in mind his recent form.
All-Rounder: It’s a tough choice but Ravindra Jadeja seems to be the ideal candidate for this role. Jadeja’s bowling, batting and incredible fielding efforts makes him some choice for this role.
