In terms of NRR, both Chennai and Hyderabad had a similar start to their campaign, with the latter ahead. As one of the most successful teams in the IPL’s history, Chennai didn’t have the start they expected. After the first game against Mumbai in the season opener, they have failed to continue their winning momentum. With only one win in three games, they are actually at the bottom of the points table. Their lousy intent with the bat seems to be the key reason behind their campaign’s slow start. Chennai will get Rayudu’s service in the middle order with Faf du Plessis already doing well at number three, which could change their fortunes in upcoming matches.
On the other hand, Hyderabad has been one of the most balanced and stable groups in recent years. But with two defeats in two games, they began their campaign. With the likes of Kane Williamson back in their batting order, they eventually managed to register their first victory. They seem to be over-dependent on their opening pair, but their batting order on paper looks a lot more balanced with Kane back in the squad. Hyderabad will expect their young middle order to step up and help them to take the two points in Dubai with a promising debut from Abdul Samad and a complete all-round success with the ball.
Dubai’s weather for Friday’s match promises to stay tough on the players. During the game, temperatures are set to hit 34 ° C and will hover around that level. There is no rain forecast on the bright side.
Even if there is dew in the second innings, the pitch at Dubai matched the teams batting first. In the second innings, the track begins to get slower. Hunting at this venue could therefore be a little tricky. Help for the spinners is available, but the margin of error is minimal.

CSK’s struggles so far in the IPL can be related to their injury problems and missing members of the squad; it would be silly to suggest that SRH has a stronger team on paper. Given that the CSK is going to do whatever they can to try for a bounce back, we are the CSK ‘s favourite to win this match. Let’s back Chennai Super Kings to beat Sunrisers Hyderabad at 1.91 with baji.live now!
