Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Chennai Super Kings T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, IPL 2024

SRH will take on CSK in the 18th match of the IPL 2024. The match will be played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium and will start at 7:30 PM IST on April 5.

SRH has been on fire in IPL 2024. The points table suggest that the team has lost two out of the three games but mind you, they could have easily won all games. SRH suffered a defeat to GT in last game and that probably was their worst performance in the IPL 2024 so far.

However, they have the best batting line-up in the tournament and should bounce back strong. Travis Head looks to be in the form of his life and Abhishek Sharma is also going through a dream run. Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, Abdul Samad – SRH  have everything a team need to win an IPL.

The bowlers have leaked a few runs but the team is not short on quality, with Pat Cummins, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, Mayank Markande at their disposal.  They have conceded over 200 runs in two out of the three games so they would need a bit more discipline but given that they also scored over 200 runs in those matches, we can’t get too harsh on them.

SRH will be up against CSK, who will come into the game after losing to Delhi Capitals in Vizag. The defeat came as a shock as CSK were the favourites to win, however, MS Dhoni’s cameo down the order more of less made the fans forget about the loss and cherish the vintage Dhoni. Anyways, this is not a format where teams will win 100 per cent of their matches so CSK won’t be too disappointed. In a nutshell, CSK have a quality batting lineup and a potent bowling attack so they would be a tough opponent to take down for an on-song SRH.

SRH Team News & Playing 11

SRH Team News

There is no clear fitness update for T Natarajan. He played against KKR but was ruled out of the following two games. He was expected to get fit before the previous clash against GT but didn’t. Expectations are high that he could return to playing XI against CSK, however, there is no official update. In another massive blow, ace all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga has pulled out of the tournament.

SRH Key Players

  • Travis Head – Head has played two games so far and has looked in devastating form. He scored 62 in 24 balls against MI, helping SRH post 277-3, and looked good during his knock of 19 against GT before throwing away his wicket. Head plays only one way thus if he stays at the wicket for say 30 balls, CSK will be in massive trouble.
  • Abhishek Sharma – Abhishek Sharma is finally repaying the faith shown by the franchise over the years. Like Head, he too has been at his ruthless best. He has scored 124 runs so far at a strike rate of 200, including a fifty.
  • Heinrich Klaasen – He is arguably the best T20 player at the moment in world cricket. If Klaasen is batting and the game looks beyond the reach, don’t get your eyes off the TV as Klaasen can pull off miraculous wins. He almost did that against KKR when he got SRH close to the target of 209 with a 29 ball 63. He has so far scored 167 runs at a strike rate of 219, including two fifties.
  • Pat Cummins – The bowling has not been bad at all but the format is such where bowlers can do very little. However, Cummins has bowled well and picked a wicket for just 28 runs against GT.

SRH Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Umran Malik, Washington Sundar, Glenn Phillips, Nitish Reddy, Upendra Yadav

The wicket will be a belter so SRH might need an extra bowler against CSK. Umran Malik or Washington Sundar could be picked depending on match situation.

SRH Team Form

SRH have played good cricket but luck has not gone their way, with the team losing two out of the three games in IPL 2024.

SRH Predicted Playing 11

Mayank Agarwal, Travis Head, Abhishek Sharma, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen (wk), Abdul Samad, Shahbaz Ahmed, Pat Cummins (c), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mayank Markande, Jaydev Unadkat/T Natarajan

CSK Team News & Playing 11

CSK Team News

Mustafizur Rahman is unlikely to be available for the clash and he has flown back home due to personal reasons. Shardul Thakur can replace him in the playing XI. Mitchell Santner might also have a chance of getting a game.

CSK Key Players

  • Rachin Ravindra – Rachin Ravindra has looked in sparkling form for CSK. He has played a couple of blinders but hasn’t quite gone on to turn the knocks into match winning ones. But the way he is striking the ball, a big knock is not far away.
  • Shivam Dube – Dube has been brilliant for CSK. Game after game, he has impressed with his striking abilities. In fact, he has become one of the mainstays of this CSK batting. Dube has scored just over 100 runs for CSK in three games. On a placid surface in Hyderabad, he can be devastating.
  • Matheesha Pathirana – Pathirana has a big role to play for CSK in the season. He has started well and picked three wickets for 31 runs against DC. His skills in death overs make him one of the most lethal pacers to face in final overs.
  • Ravindra Jadeja – Jadeja has been off-colour so far but brings in immense value to the team. He is a quality batter down the order, and is CSK’s leading spinner along with being a gun fielder as well. Jadeja will be looking to turn things around against SRH.

CSK Possible Impact Player Substitutes

Sameer Rizvi, Shardul Thakur, Shaik Rasheed, Nishant Sandhu, Mitchell Santner, Moeen Ali

CSK are trying to invest in Sameer Rizvi and he is likely to be used as an impact player. If Shardul fails to find a place in playing XI, he will also be an option for impact player;

CSK Team Form

CSK were top notch at home but suffered a defeat to DC in last game in Vizag. They would look to do well against SRH and prove that the team can win against any team and in any conditions.

CSK Predicted Playing 11

Ruturaj Gaikwad (c), Rachin Ravindra, Ajinkya Rahane, Daryl Mitchell, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja , MS Dhoni (wk), Deepak Chahar, Tushar Deshpande, Mitchell Santner, Matheesha Pathirana

SRH vs CSK Head to Head

CSK clearly hold an edge in terms of head to head, having won 15 out of the 20 games, however, the teams have changed over the years so SRH would look to better this record in coming years.

SRH vs CSK Betting Odds

CSK are getting the favourites tag on betting platforms.  CSK are an experienced team and look more balanced than SRH so they are being backed at favourites by the punters.

Who will win Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Chennai Super Kings T20 Match?

We suggest backing CSK to win. CSK did lose the previous game but that will not dent the team’s confidence. CSK have all the assets available to beat any team on their day. SRH can be inconsistent given the brand of cricket they play. MS Dhoni won’t allow SRH to dominate CSK like other teams with his field placements and strategies so CSK hold an edge.
