IPL 2021: In the 14th season of the Indian Premier League, today there will be a competition between Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad. CSK have a great chance of cementing their place in the top two after beating Hyderabad. On the other hand, Sunrisers would like to bet only on their young players in this match.
Chennai Super Kings currently remains in the first place in the table with 16 points. CSK have performed amazingly in this tournament and have lost only two matches so far. If CSK wins today’s match, then their chances of being in the top two will increase and they will avoid playing the elemental match.
Chances of change in CSK’s playing 11 are very less. Captain Dhoni can rest his opener du Plessis. Dwayne Bravo is likely to play in place of du Plessis. Bravo was out of the last match. In such a situation, Moeen Ali along with Rituraj can be seen handling the responsibility of opening.
There will be no change in Hyderabad’s team
This tournament has been a very bad experience for Sunrisers Hyderabad. The team has missed qualifying for the playoffs for the first time since 2016. However, Hyderabad had made it clear as soon as it was out of the playoff race that now it will give a chance to the young players in the remaining matches.
All doors are already closed for David Warner to make a comeback this season. Jason Roy has shown good form by hitting a fifty in the debut match. Apart from this, Hyderabad would like to give one more chance to young players like Priyam Garg, Samad and Abhishek Sharma.
CSK: Rituraj Gaikwad, Moeen Ali, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (captain), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar and Josh Hazlewood.
SRH: Jason Roy, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Kane Williamson (c), Priyam Garg, Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma.
