IPL 2019 CSK vs SRH match preview
A nice wicket win, one so comprehensive in nature that it took SRH’s net run rate to the maximum of all contesting sides in the showpiece tournament. Having made light of KKR with a clinical showing on Sunday, there couldn’t have been a better match for SRH to build on when they go to CSK’s stadium in their quest to make it 2 wins out of 2 against a bitter adversary this season.

On the other hand, despite showing strong fighting spirit to almost script a comeback against RCB, Dhoni’s 48 ball 84 wasn’t enough to seal a knock-out stage berth. Losing by just the 1 run, the defeat means the CSK have now lost two matches on the bounce, something they hadn’t managed in the entirety of the previous season.
As they turn back to home conditions for their next encounter, CSK will be looking to bring back Harbhajan Singh for the encounter and reinstate a three-man spin attack that has served them so fortuitously this season. N Jadeja, Tahir and Harbhajan, they have 12 overs of the slower stuff, something that they’ll be looking to get early inroads and break the mainstays of SRH’s batting unit early on.
On the other hand, for SRH, the match will be decided by their middle-order. It’s been an incoherent one, that’s been way too often cleaned up by their opposition viciously and if Bairstow and Warner collapse early on, the ramifications for the visiting side can be contentiously colossal.

With the middle-order not showing any kind of consistency for CSK this season, the bulk of the scoring for them has been done by the top order with Faf du Plessis being the only one to show some kind of persistent run-scoring knack. In Bhuvneshwar and Khaleel, SRH have two pace bowlers who’ll open the attack with a penchant for wickets.
