The toppers in IPL points table, Chennai Super Kings will take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 41st match of the IPL 2019 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Mumbai on 23rd April. The match will start at 8:00 pm. CSK vs SRH match preview.
CSK is currently at the first position in IPL points table for a quite long time now. Super Kings, with seven wins and three losses in their ten league match so far. On the other hand, SRH won five and lost four out of their nine league matches so far. SRH is currently in fourth place in IPL points table.
CSK are just one win away from being the first time team to qualify for the IPL playoffs 2019. But they have lost their last couple of matches against RCB and SRH. The main area of concern for CSK has been their batting. MS Dhoni is single-handedly leading the team and has scored the most number of runs for CSK this season.
Dhoni almost won the last game for CSK against RCB but in the end, fell short by one run. Their top order has failed again and again, and if CSK wants to win the tournament they need to work on their batting lineup.
While CSK lost both of their previous encounters, SRH has won both of their previous games, one out of which came against CSK. SRH must be high on the belief that they can beat CSK especially when they have already defeated them once earlier in IPL 2019. Jonny Bairstow and David Warner have been sensational for the SRH team so far.
David Warner is currently the leading run scorer in IPL 2019 with Jonny Bairstow on the second spot. However, apart from these two players, none of their batsmen have managed to score big runs and if SRH wants to win the IPL Trophy, their other batsman needs to come forward and take responsibility.
CSK vs SRH rivalry in IPL 2019: When last time these two teams met in IPL 2019, SRH bowlers did a fabulous job and restricted CSK to a total of 135 runs that SRH chased with the incredible innings of David Warner (50) and Jonny Bairstow (61).
