Puno, April 30: While the story has a lot to do with Chennai Super Kings as they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in match 46 of the Indian Premier League at MCA Stadium here, the four-time champions’ performance this season doesn’t generate much excitement among their millions of fans. fans around the world. while the team led by Ravindra Jadeja continues to accumulate one defeat after another.
Sitting in ninth position with just two wins to show for their efforts, the defending champions, while not out of contention yet, have a very slim chance of making the grade, even when SSR they have overcome the disaster of IPL 2021 to be among the title contenders leading to the commercial end of the tournament.
While CSK expects Shivam Dube to play another decisive inning after his undefeated 95 against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the ‘Southern Derby’ more than two weeks ago, Devon Conway’s return from a wedding will boost CSK’s batting. Matheesha Pathirana from Sri Lanka, who replaced Adam Milne, also joined the team.
With Dube having scored the most runs for CSK this season (247 in eight games), the in-form batsman, along with Dwayne Bravo, who leads the bowling attack with 14 scalps in eight games, will be CSK’s key players in the contest.
The two teams have met 17 times in the competition so far with the Super Kings earning 12 wins and the Sunrisers five.
The toss could also play a vital role at the venue, given that of the eight games that have been played here so far, the team batting first has claimed five wins, while the chasing team has claimed victory three times, with the average first. the innings score is 169.
