Eleven days after their last clash, Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad will meet again in Dubai on Tuesday. The last time the two teams met, Sunrisers won by seven runs but the margin of victory doesn’t reflect the fact it outplayed the Super Kings convincingly.
Both teams come into this encounter on the back of defeats in their respective last games and can’t afford any further slip-up. The teams have played seven matches and Sunrisers have three wins compared to the Super Kings’ two.
On Sunday, Sunrisers failed to close out the match against Rajasthan Royals after having the latter under the mat defending 158. While the team’s batting unit has been amongst the runs, the bowling unit is hurting with the loss of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. T Natarajan and Rashid Khan have stepped up to the occasion but need support from other bowlers.
