Chennai Super Kings are unbeatable in their own stadium, but they lost to the Rajasthan Royals in their last IPL 2023 match. The Men in Yellow hope to return to winning ways when they face the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Match 29 of IPL 202023 at Chepauk on Friday, 21st April. Super Kings is in third position in the standings, with a good net run rate. They have won three matches out of five. If they win, they would be a legitimate contender for the playoffs this season. They’d also have the same points as the two teams above in the table.
Hyderabad’s campaign has so far been disappointing. The Orange Army was one of the favorites for the top two teams, but lost both their games to start the competition and then by two points at home to the Mumbai Indians.
Aiden Markram’s team has tried to change their starting XI without much success. They must now strike a balance. If they want better performance against CSK, then they will turn to their star local recruits.
Will the Super Kings repeat their win over Royal Challengers Bangalore? Will the Sunrisers once again wreck havoc in Chennai?
CSK Vs. SRH IPL 2023 Prediction: MS Dhoni And Co. Hoping To Get Back Into The Chepauk Winning Segment
CSK’s biggest domestic strength is its spin, and SRH can counter it with the resources they have.
Mayank Agarwal has always been reliable. However, he’s not been his best this year against spinners. Harry Brook has a reputation for being vulnerable to spinners.
Markram, the captain of Hyderabad’s team, has made significant progress in this area. Abhishek and Heinrich Klaasen are two fantastic twisters. They may struggle to compete with spinners like Moeen Ali and Maheesh Theekshana.
Devon Conway, Ajinkya Rahane, and Ruturaj Gaidwad supported the Super Kings top three. Conway and Rahane made sure the powerplay was used to the fullest potential, even though Gaikwad failed in both of the Super Kings’ last two matches.
CSK’s bowlers seem to be finding their groove in IPL 2023. Matheesha Pathirana is clearly supported by MS Dhoni and Tushar Dashpande has been steadily improving as a bowler. Maheesh Tekshana also seems to be moving in the right directions.
Washington Sundar will give SRH its best chance to win. The young leg-spinner, who has six wickets so far in three matches, has been a major obstacle for the Men in Yellow.
SRH, however, may not be able to beat CSK at home because key batters have been underperforming. Sundar has also fallen behind in IPL 2023. Dhoni, along with his team, are in a good position to reclaim the Chepauk win.
Prediction: CSK to win IPL Match 29.
