The IPL 2020 season, the 13th edition of the cash-rich cricket league has its 29th match on 13th October when Sunrisers Hyderabad will take on Chennai Super Kings at the Dubai International Stadium.
Despite superb batting performances from David Warner (48-off-38) and Manish Pandey (44-ball-54), SRH were unable to defend their total of 158 against Rajasthan Royals. The brilliant bowling figures from Rashid Khan and Khaleel Ahmed went in vain as the other bowlers gave away too many runs.
Full Squad: David Warner (c), Rashid Khan, Sanjay Yadav, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma, Abdul Samad, Mitchell Marsh, Shreevats Goswami (wk), Mohammad Nabi, Fabian Allen, Abhishek Sharma, Basil Thampi, Billy Stanlake, Sandeep Bavanaka, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Virat Singh, T Natarajan, Kane Williamson, Shahbaz Nadeem, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Siddarth Kaul, Priyam Garg.
Chennai Super Kings
IPL 2020 is becoming a struggle for Chennai Super Kings as they continue to lose games. Despite an impressive 43 from Rayudu, the lacklustre CSK batting squad was a whopping 38 runs shorter from reaching their target. However, Deepak Chahar impressed in bowling along with Jadeja, while Shardul Thakur secured two scalps.
Full Squad: KM Asif, Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla, Sam Curran, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Faf du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Josh Hazlewood, Imran Tahir, Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav, Narayan Jagadeesan (wk), Monu Kumar, Lungi Ngidi, Ambati Rayudu, Ravisrinivasan Sai Kishore, Mitchell Santner, Karn Sharma, Shardul Thakur, Murali Vijay, Shane Watson.
Waging odds: Sunrisers Hyderabad (1.95) vs Chennai Super Kings (1.80)
Sunrisers Hyderabad are priced at 1.95 and are the underdogs. Betting ₹100 on them will earn you ₹195 if they come out as winners.
Chennai Super Kings are priced at 1.80 and are the waging favourites. Betting ₹100 on them will earn you ₹180 if they snatch a victory tomorrow.
Their previous faceoff in IPL 2020 saw SRH sweeping up a 7 wicket victory on 2nd October. However, today’s match is critical for CSK if they want to stay in the race for the playoffs and it is expected that they will bounce back hard to sweep up a victory. While SRH has been impressive in batting, their bowling squad except for Rashid and Khaleel were costly and something that the strong CSK batting lineup will be eyeing to exploit.
It will be a victory for Chennai Super Kings.
