Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad will be clashing with each other once again after a gap of 11 days at Dubai on Tuesday. Both the teams lost their last match and will be itching to get back to winning ways. In their last face-off Sunrisers had outplayed Chennai winning the match by 7 runs.
The story of both CSK and SRH in the tournament has been similar so far. While CSK have won two games out of the seven, Sunrisers have three wins in their kitty from as many games. None of the two teams can afford any more slip-ups if they want to keep their hopes alive in the tournament. Sunrisers will have to get their act together in the bowling department which is looking quite weak in the absence of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who was ruled out of the tournament following an injury.
On the other hand, CSK have struggled with the bat throughout the tournament. Dhoni’s boys will have to save wickets and score some quick runs in the middle overs in order to give a tough fight to SRH.
