Chennai Super Kings will be desperately looking to return to winning ways when they lock horns against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 29th game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. Both the teams are coming into this game after losing their previous encounters.
Chennai Super Kings suffered a crushing 37-run loss at the hands of Royal Challengers Bangalore. Chasing 170, the MS Dhoni-led side could only manage 132 for 8 as their batting failed to deliver once again in the tournament. With just two wins from their opening seven games, Chennai Super Kings are currently languishing at the seventh spot in the points table.
On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad are slightly in a better position with three wins from seven games. The David Warner-led side had suffered a morale-shattering defeat in its previous game when Rajasthan Royals recovered from 78 for 5 after 12 overs to chase down 154. With Chennai not in good form at present, Sunrisers will be looking to shake off that defeat against the Royals quickly and get back to winning ways.
Chennai Super Kings have won the toss and have elected to bat first against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
