|Faf du Plessis||22||19||4||0||115.79|
Not often do we find Chennai Super Kings struggling at the beginning of the Indian Premier League, but their start to IPL 2020 has been so unlike them. While MS Dhoni still appears to be unfazed the results the Super Kings have posted in their recent games, Chennai Super Kings would want to kickstart their campaign with a win in their upcoming contest.
Chennai Super Kings are set to meet Sunrisers Hyderabad in an upcoming contest, which is to be played on 2nd October at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. Sunrisers Hyderabad are coming off a fantastic win over Delhi Capitals and will be brimming with confidence. Both CSK and SRH are currently placed in the bottom half of the table and a win here will be of significant importance for both of them. A cracker of a contest is certainly on the cards on Friday.
Chennai Super Kings haven't had a start to talk about in the Indian Premier League 2020. They lost their premier players even before the tournament started and the absence of whom is still being felt. With Rayudu injured as well, Chennai could not settle upon a solid combination in the middle-order and that pushed them to the bottom of the ladder.
Originally tailored for the spin-friendly surface of MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, the Superking's bowling hasn't quite clicked either. Lungi Ngidi looked ordinary at best and was eventually replaced by Josh Hazlewood. The biggest disappointment for them so far has been Ravindra Jadeja who has not only failed to pick up wickets but also has been unable to keep the batsmen quiet. In the three matches gone, Jadeja has conceded runs at an economy rate of 10.50.
Besides their bowling, it is their batting that seems to be crawling at the moment. Murali Vijay has looked dismal in all three matches gone and with Rayudu back, we expect Murali Vijay to sit out of the upcoming match. Rayudu smashed a brilliant half-century against Mumbai Indians before he had to sit on the sidelines due to an injury. With Faf du Plessis already doing well, Chennai Super Kings will once again get the much-needed strength in the middle-order.
MS Dhoni has also been accused of not leading from the front given that he didn't come out to bat when the required run-rate was soaring in the early-teens and mere his presence the crease would have intimidated the bowlers. One argument in Dhoni's favor could be that he wanted to provide all players with a chance to get past any rustiness that they might have been carrying into the tournament. With things getting more intense with every passing match, we expect Chennai Super Kings to have a more definite plan in the upcoming matches.
On paper, CSK have an immaculate balance. The presence of Sam Curran and Ravindra Jadeja, who both can contribute in all three departments of the game, provides them with a pretty good balance. Curran has already exhibited his skills with a couple of match winnings performance and will be a key man going forward. Even though Bravo he expected to be back when fit, we expect Curran to maintain his place in the playing eleven.
Chennai Super Kings are coming into the upcoming match on the back of a long seven-day break. Given that they will also have Amabati Rayudu back to the fold, Chennai Super Kings are expected to have a lot clearer road ahead. On paper, they have a decent lineup but are just struggling to find the right balance. If and whenever they find it, Chennai Super Kings will once again be a dangerous team to deal with.

Sunrisers Hyderabad finally managed to get off the mark on the points table as they cruised past Delhi Capitals. It took them to bring Kane Williamson back into the side as the move immediately paid rich dividends. With that win, they moved from the bottom of the table to the sixth spot and will be looking to rise further.
Kane Williamson exhibited why he is rated as one of the best in the business with a brilliant knock in his first game in the tournament. Returning to SRH to fix their batting woes, Williamson had a huge challenge to not only score big but also score quickly. Coming in that number four, the spot which SRH have struggled to find the right candidate for, Kane Williamson announced himself with a match-winning knock, scoring 41 off 26 deliveries.
The addition of Williamson in the eleven certainly makes Sunrisers' batting lineup look a lot better. Earlier, they appeared to be way too over-reliant on the opening pair of Jonny Bairstow and David Warner, but with Kanos fitting nicely into the scheme of things, Sunrisers' batting appears to be a lot better. Debutant Abdul Samad impressed with a brief cameo, bu Having said that, they still do not have any candidate as a finished and until Vijay Shankar comes back into the fold, they are likely to find themselves in trouble should they lose too many wickets too early.
The Sunrisers have always been known for their splendid bowling attack and their performance in the last match gave ample reasons for that. Although not a well-known bowler, T Natarajan bowled a brilliant spell of fast-bowling against Delhi Capitals, delivering yorkers with pinpoint accuracy. With Bhuvneshwar Kumar available as the other death bowler, SRH seems to have their death-bowling sorted. However, Khaleel Ahmed certainly is a weak-link in their bowling lineup and could be targeted by the opposition batsmen.
Rashid Khan has always taken the center stage for the Sunrisers and his performance in the previous match justified that. Although he had not picked too many wickets up until the last match, he had done a fairly good job in keeping things quiet. On a surface that was conducive to spin, Rashid Khan proved to be just the bowler that Sunrisers needed against the Capitals. He picked up three important wickets, which sealed the game then and there. With Abhishek Sharma available to assist him in the spin-bowling department, Sunrisers Hyderabad appear to be pretty well equipped to bowl on the surfaces on offer in UAE.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have perhaps been one of the most consistent sides in the competition in recent times. David Warner, Kane Williamson, and Jonny Bairstow have been fantastic for them, but its the Indian batsmen they have lacked. Barring Manish Pandey, they still do not have anyone who has the experience and skillset required in the competition. They'd need to find someone other than their top-four to fire and if they can do that, Sunrisers Hyderabad will certainly be one of the most difficult sides to deal with in the competition.

This ground has an immaculate record in the favor of the team batting first. In all of the six matches played here, the team batting first eventually finished at the top. The pitch is likely to slow down so much that the dew might not have as much an impact as expected. As we have seen right throughout, runs on the board will be difficult to chase down. Considering that as well as the statistics, which highly favors the team batting first, we expect the captain winning the toss to bat first.

Dubai International Cricket Stadium has the biggest ground of the three venues selected for the IPL. As has been happening in the tournament so far, we expect the match to be played on one of the side pitches, making hitting sixes on one side a tad too difficult. With that, we expect the spinners to not only come into the game but also have a big impact. In fact, spinners have so far tasted more success here as compared to the seamers. As expected, there is no probability of showers, but dew will certainly have an impact in the latter part of the second innings. We expect the surface to have the grass rolled-in over a hard base, making it batting beauty. However, it might slow down considerably in the first half of the second innings. The team winning the toss would want to put a total of at least 175 runs here.

There are a few striking dissimilarities between the two sides. While Sunrisers Hyderabad have a terrific opening pair that has proved itself time and again, Chennai Super Kings are still struggling to find their best combination at the top. Also, with Rashid Khan being is fine form, Sunrisers' spin department appear to be better based on the performance in the tournament so far. Having said that, Chennai Super Kings' experience is second to none, and are expected to adapt sooner rather than later. Finishing the games is a key aspect in the shortest version of the game and with no reliable batsmen available in their lower middle-order, the Sunriers appear to be a little light on that. On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings are packed right through with powerful strikers of the ball. On paper, Chennai Super Kings have an immaculate balance that only a few teams in the tournament can match. Considering that and the other factors stated above, Chennai Super Kings are better placed to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter.
Our Favorite Bets
David Warner - Total Runs - Over 26.5, 1.83 @ Betway
David Warner has historically been the best Sunrisers' batsmen and he has continued the trend in this season as well. However, despite getting good starts, he has unable to play a big knock yet. CSK's new-ball attack isn't as good as some of the other teams and we expect David Warner to capitalize on that. We also expect that a big knock for David Warner is around the corner and hitting a personal score of 27 shouldn't be hard for him.
Murali Vijay - Total Runs, Under 20.5, 1.83 @ Betway
Not only Murali Vijay has been one of the worst-performing batsmen for the Super Kings, but his innings have also had a massive impact on the match result. He has been too slow at the top of the order, putting extra pressure on the other batsmen. There will be truckloads of pressure on him in the upcoming match and given that surface isn't likely to be suitable for the slam, bang, and wallop approach, Murali Vijay is likely to perish early yet again.
Team Highest - 1st 6 overs, Sunrisers Hyderabad, 1.91 @ 1xBet
As seen in the tournament so far, Chennai Super Kings have been slow at the top of the order. On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad have all their power concentrated at the top and are likely to go hard in the first six overs. Therefore, this punt of Sunrisers to have the highest score at the end of powerplay seems to be a pretty lucrative proposition.
Total Runs - Match - Over 322.5, 1.725 @ 1xBet
While this venue hasn't been as batting friendly as Sharjah, the batsmen have still managed to score pretty well here. Batsmen once set will have plenty of opportunities to get after the bowling, evident from the hundred that KL Rahul scored against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Also, the scores in the tournament suggest that hitting high scores batting first at this venue is highly possible. We expect the match total to easily exceed the 322-run mark.
Top Batsman - Chennai Super Kings - Faf du Plessis, 4.00 @ 10Cric
Apart from Ambati Rayudu, who has featured in only one match, the only batsman that has looked comfortable in the middle and has scored runs for CSK has been Faf du Plessis. Although the South African captain didn't find it easy at the beginning, he seems to be in pretty good form. Batting at number three, he will have enough number of deliveries to score well. Considering that, betting on Faf du Plessis to be CSK's top batsman appears to be a reasonably good punt that can multiply your money.
