CSK vs SRH: Chennai Super Kings is taking on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai in a thrilling game. After suffering a couple of defeats in their first few games, CSK road back into the game. But despite having three wins under their belt, CSK’s bowling has become a cause of concern for the MS Dhoni side this season. However, MS Dhoni has done a brilliant job with the limited resources in his hands.
As CSK takes on SRH, all eyes will be on Ben Stokes, who is available for selection today. If he can bowl, it will solve a lot of issues for Dhoni.
Talking about SunRisers Hyderabad, SRH has tasted back-to-back victories against KKR and Punjab but recently, lost a nail-biting game to Mumbai Indians in their last match. The form of their top players including Mayank Agarwal has become a huge concern for the side.
CSK captain MS Dhoni won the toss and opted to bowl first against SRH
After winning the toss, MS Dhoni pointed out that dew may come into play. CSK made no changes to their playing 11. He said:
“This pitch is 50-50 because it is slightly cloudy. There might be dew so always better to chase. Combination wise, we have been fortunate because we haven’t had all players available. The headaches start later when everyone becomes available.”
SRH skipper Aiden Markram also wanted to bowl first. Markram backed SRH to post a good total as he gave the example of the KKR match. He said:
“We’d have also bowled first. I think we need to get the whole game good together, one skill is good and the other not as much, so we are working on it. If one of them is having a good night, they have to make it big. Hectic schedules but we are not complaining, the IPL allows us the chance to travel around and meet different fan bases.”
