Chennai Super Kings vs SunRisers Hyderabad Match Preview, IPL 2022, Match 17, CSK vs SRH. Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad, who are winless so far will look to get their first points on board when they clash in match 17 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 at the Dr. DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday (April 9).

PBKS vs GT Dream11 Prediction

Ravindra Jadeja’s reign as captain of CSK has started with three defeats in as many matches, while Kane Williamson’s SRH has lost both their matches played so far this season. CSK suffered defeats against Kolkata Knight Riders, Lucknow Super Giants, and most recently Punjab Kings. Although the bowlers did well in the first innings, the batters failed and CSK was bundled out for 126 in 18 overs, chasing a target of 181.

SunRisers Hyderabad, meanwhile, lost their season opener against the Rajasthan Royals by a huge margin and followed that with a close defeat against new entrants LSG, falling short by 12 in the run chase of 170 at the same venue. The two southern rivals have met 16 times in IPL so far and it is CSK that has enjoyed the fair share of success against SRH with 12 wins. CSK also holds the edge in the last five meetings with 3 wins.

CSK’s bowling has been their weakness so far with not much pace and variety, as they are definitely missing the services of Deepak Chahar, who is injured and won’t play till April 25. Losing 2 out of their 2 games, SunRisers Hyderabad is standing at the last position in the points table. Skipper Kane Williamson’s form is a concern for them, as he has failed in both games.

The most likely option to get back to winning ways for CSK would be to drop veteran pacer Dwayne Bravo, their highest wicket-taker in the competition till now, and bring in Sri Lankan mystery spinner Maheesh Theekshana who can bowl in the power play, in the middle overs, and at the death as well.

With regard to the Indian pacers, both Mukesh Choudhary and Tushar Deshpande have failed to make a mark and it is perhaps time to take a punt on under 19 find Raj Hangargekar.
