5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Kane Williamson, Faf du Plessis, and Ambati Rayudu.
CSK vs SRH Team Wicket-Keeper
Jonny Bairstow (Price 9.5) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad. Jonny is in a really good form and has already scored two half-centuries in just three games till now in the tournament. He is a world-class player and is expected to give a solid start to his team in this game as well.
CSK vs SRH Team Batsmen
Ambati Rayudu (Price 9), and Faf du Plessis (Price 9) will be our batsmen from the Chennai Super Kings. Faf has been absolutely fantastic in the tournament so far and has scored 173 runs in the tournament which includes a couple of half-centuries. He would like to continue his top form with the bat whereas Ambati is expected to play this game and he already has scored a half-century in the first game of the tournament. Both of them have to play a crucial role in this team’s success.
David Warner (Price 10.5) and Kane Williamson (Price 9.5) will be our batsmen from the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Williamson proved his class in the last game by playing an absolutely top-notch knock and he will be raring to go in this game as well whereas Warner would like to capitalize on the knock he played in the last game as he is expected to score some big runs for the side being the 2019 Orange Cup winner. Both of them are world-class players.
CSK vs SRH Team All-Rounders
Sam Curran (Price 8.5) will be our all-rounder from the Chennai Super Kings. Curran is an excellent and intelligent cricketer with both bat and the ball. He is in a top-form as well with 36 runs and 5 wickets so far in the tournament. Sam is an un-droppable option.
CSK vs SRH Team Bowlers
Rashid Khan (Price 9.5), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (Price 9), and T Natarajan (Price 8) will be our bowlers from the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Rashid and Bhuvi were at their very best in the last game as Bhuvi was swinging the ball and Rashid just dominated in the middle-overs. Both of them are T20 specialist bowlers and have to be picked whereas Natarajan has been an underrated gem, he has been bowling his yorkers effortlessly and has picked three wickets in the tournament so far.
Deepak Chahar (Price 8.5) and Piyush Chawla (Price 8.5) will be our bowlers from the Chennai Super Kings. Chahar has picked three wickets in the tournament whereas Chawla has picked four wickets. Both of them can concede runs but they are genuine wicket-takers with the ball and they may certainly earn a good amount of fantasy points.
Match Prediction: Sunrisers Hyderabad will be the favourites to win this game.
