CSK vs SRH- Match Preview: The 44th match of IPL 2021 will have Chennai Super Kings (CSK) take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Thursday. The two teams are sitting at the opposite ends of the IPL 2021 points table. Chennai Super Kings find themselves at the top of the points table with 8 wins in 10 matches.
They have sealed their playoff berth but would be aiming to end the league stage in the top two positions. Chennai Super Kings are yet to lose a game in the second leg of IPL 2021. They are coming into the contest on the back of a 2-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders. On a good batting surface, Kolkata batted well and compiled 171 runs in the first innings.
CSK found it tough to chase down the score and had Ravindra Jadeja not smashed a few hits in the 19th over, CSK couldn’t have won the game. Ruturaj Gaikwad (40 off 28) and Faf du Plessis (43 off 30) gave the team a rollicking start with the bat, having added 74 runs in the first 8 overs.
Moeen Ali (32 off 28) made a solid contribution but low scores of Rayudu, Raina and Dhoni left CSK in a spot of bother. Later, Ravindra Jadeja smashed 20 runs in four balls during the 19th over to snatch victories from the jaws of defeat.
Facing them are Sunrisers Hyderabad, who would be feeling good about themselves after registering their second win of IPL 2021 in their last game against Rajasthan Royals. An all-around effort from the bowlers restricted RR to 164 runs in the first innings.
Later, Jason Roy and Kane Williamson played match-winning knocks to guide the side to a seven-wicket win. Roy set the tone with 60 off 42 balls, while Williamson finished the game with 51 off 41 balls, including 5 fours and 1 six. With 4 matches left in their campaign, SRH would be keen to win as many matches as possible.
