IPL 2022 – Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad – Match Preview and Prediction

On April 9, the Chennai Super Kings will face the Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2022 Match 17 at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai. Both clubs are anxious for a win to earn their first points of the season. CSK have lost all three of their initial games. After falling by six wickets to KKR in a one-sided encounter, the reigning champions failed to defend a 210 against LSG before succumbing to a PBKS run chase.

On the other side, SRH’s season got off to a disappointing start with a 61-run defeat to the Rajasthan Royals before running out of gas in another run chase against the newcomers Lucknow Super Giants. The massive loss versus RR has also had a negative effect on their net run rate, which is presently -1.825.

 

Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Match 17 – Pitch Report

 

The DY Patil Stadium’s wicket provides ample assistance to both pacers and spinners. Even the hitters will be anticipating dominating in powerplay overs. The speed of the surface is supposed to decrease as the game proceeds. As a result, the captain who wins the toss will want to bat first. Another reason to bat first is that the game is scheduled for the afternoon.

MS Dhoni seemed to have recovered his groove in recent weeks. After scoring an undefeated 50 runs off 38 deliveries in the curtain-raiser against the Kolkata Knight Riders, he went on to hit 16 runs off six deliveries against the Lucknow Super Giants, helping the club achieve a huge 210/7 in the final game. A similar rescue operation was performed by Dhoni in the previous encounter against Punjab, scoring a crucial 23 runs as a result of which Chennai managed to reach 126 in the chase of 181.

Ravindra Jadeja is still getting a hang on his new captaincy role and it is truly great to see Dhoni stepping in with the bat and helping the team out of sticky situations.
