Both, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings will be looking to get some momentum early into the tournament when they clash in the 14th match of the Indian Premier League 2020. The match is scheduled to take place at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium and will take place at 6:00 PM local time.
Chennai Super Kings hasn’t had the best of the IPL 2020 so far. First they lost Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh even before the tournament started, now they’ve lost two back to back games against Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals. It’s not the loss that will by worrying Mahendra Singh Dhoni but the way his team has fared in the previous two games. CSK has lacked definite intent. Apart from Faf du Plessis, none of the batsmen have looked comfortable at the crease. In the bowling department, Sam Curran and Deepak Chahar have bowled well but the spinners have been a big disappointment. CSK need to make major changes in their team if they’re to perform better in the upcoming games. They’ll be happy that both, Ambati Rayudu and Dwayne Bravo have been declared fit and are available for selection in the next game.
Sunrisers Hyderabad on the other hand have their own issues to deal with. Their batting looks too dependent on the trio of David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson. Other batsmen such as Abhishek Sharma and Priyam Garg haven’t had much of an opportunity in the middle. Moreover, their top order has failed to score runs at a brisk pace with 162 being their highest score. Their bowling is too week to defend that total. They did that against Delhi but you’ll lose most of your matches if you don’t cross the 180 run mark on these wickets. In Bhuveneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan they have two class bowlers but they need some additional support in their bowling department. While there is little that separates the two teams, Chennai will go in the match as slight favourites because of a better bowling attack.
