Chennai Super Kings (CSK)

CSK have played superbly till now with some superb performances all departments. The batting has been superb led by Micheal Hussey who has amassed 305 runs and is among the top five run-getters of the season currently. However the other opener Murali Vijay has been average and has been good in patches. Suresh Raina and Badrinath played superbly in the last couple of matches and look to get back in form but are yet to play a big innings. The skipper MS Dhoni needs to introduction and has been superb whenever he has got chance to bat. He always liked one player who can take the match anywhere and away from the opposition anytime. The biggest revelation has been Ravindra Jadeja who has batted and bowled superbly in almost every match. The bowling has been superb with Chris Morris and R Ashwin bowling wel and tacking wickets consistently. Bravo and Morkel have not been among the best but look good and can make a difference any day.

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SH)

SH has surprised many with their clinical performance and defeating some of the finest and better teams till now. The credit for same would surely go their bowling attack which has been outstanding and has contributed immensely in the success of the team. The two bowlers, Dale Steyn and Amit Mishra, have been just superb and have taken seven and eleven wickets respectively. Infact Amit is among the top five wicket-takers of the season as of now. Ishant Sharma has also been effective and bowled good in some matches. Their batting lineup does not boast of big names but they have managed to squeeze in victories with the help of Cameron White who is the only consistent batsman currently for the team. The other batsmen have been average and have not created much of an impact as of now. The biggest problem for the team that they will face is that their key players Kumara Sangakkara and Thisara Perera will not be able to play the match because of the ongoing controversy of Sri Lankan players.

Our Prediction

SH is a good team but they will have to play without their key Sri Lankan players especially Thisara Perera who looked superb in last match when he struck three sixes to help team win the match handsomely. The batting lineup is too dependent on White and the bowling department and if either of them fail, it would be difficult for the team to win. On the other hand, CSK has been fantastic and have been playing like champions. The only factor that can cause any problem to them is fatigue as they have been playing continuously and SH has got a good week long break. But still CSK is the team who is expected to win this match and would love to take two points comfortably and retain their second position.
