Veteran Indian cricketer and cricket analyst, Aakash Chopra has heaped faith in Ambati Rayudu ahead of Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) mega clash with SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in match 29 of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020). CSK will take on SRH in the first reverse fixture of IPL 2020 on Tuesday at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
The last time both the teams locked horns, SRH emerged as the winners of the tie as we saw a struggling Dhoni trying to catch hold of his breath chasing a humungous target in the second innings. In that very game, Bhuvneshwar Kumar sustained the hip injury which eventually ruled him out of IPL 2020. CSK will definitely look to settle the score with a win in this fixture.
Aakash Chopra Has High Hopes From Ambati Rayudu
Ahead of this mega clash between Chennai and Hyderabad, Aakash Chopra shared a video on his Twitter account discussing the game today.
In the video, Aakash Chopra said, “It is time for Ambati Rayudu to prove his might and show the world what he is capable of. If Chennai Super Kings want a turnaround, Rayudu’s performance will be absolutely crucial.”
“If there is an Indian batsman in the CSK squad who can neutralize Rashid Khan, it is Ambati Rayudu. In the last couple of games, he has shown glimpses of his might and a good knock is right around the corner for him,” Aakash Chopra added.
Chennai Super Kings In A Do Or Die Situation
Chennai Super Kings have had a dismal start to their IPL 2020 campaign this year. They have lost 5 out of the 7 games they have played so far and with only 2 victories in hand, Chennai Super Kings will have to win every game from hereon in order to qualify for the playoffs.
CSK’s bowling has looked good and sturdy in the last couple of games. They will have to work on strengthening their batting in the tournament ahead. If they fail to do so, this might be the first time in the history of the IPL that CSK will fail to qualify for the playoffs while competing in the tournament.
