CSK vs SRH Match Prediction: The Sportsrush presents before you the Match Prediction of 41st match of IPL 2019.
Having stemmed a four match losing spree against the Chennai Superkings, the 6 wicket win against CSK would have given much needed relief and solace to the Sunrisers Hyderabad. In what was a well rounded and disciplined performance by SRH, both the batting and bowling have clicked together to make light work of a Dhoni-less CSK which had crumbled against SRH.
With Dhoni and Bravo back in their setup for the return leg, CSK will be looking to return the favour. On a pitch that is known to keep low, slow and offer almost no bounce to the batsmen to play their shots, CSK will be looking to resume their supremacy against a side who they had defeated in last year’s final to lift the trophy for a third time after returning for a ban.
CSK vs SRH – What numbers suggest?

Based solely on numbers and the results transpired in previous encounters, CSK go into this encounter as the side likelier to walk away from it with the two points.
CSK vs SRH – Final Prediction
A low scoring encounter, this match will be decided by the spinners for either side. While SRH have Rashid Khan, CSK’s department is bolstered by three spinning options in Jadeja, Imran and Harbhajan. What shifts the encounter in CSK’s favour is a batting heavy line-up, one that sees Bravo come in at number 8.
On a pitch where shot making is not conducive, we expect the spinners and depth in batting unit to work the trick for CSK and see them come out as winners.
