CSK vs SRH, Chennai Super Kings vs. Sunrisers Hyderabad Match Preview, Playing XI, Dream 11 Predictions
The final is upon us now and if the whole season of IPL is anything to go by then the final promises to be a thriller. This year final will be played between undoubtedly and statistically the two best teams of the IPL. Two past winners. And, two most complete squads. This year’s final promises to be one of the best.
SRH were mostly dominant throughout the group stage, brushing aside anyone with their bowling and batting brilliance. The best part is that they never rely on any particular individual. They have had their standout performers but have never been dependent on any one player. For example, SRH, just last game were heading towards, Rashid Khan popped up with his bat and gave SRH that fighting total that they Ultimately defended.
CSK have returned from their two-year exile with nothing less than a bang. Rayudu at the top, Thakur at the end, everyone has played their part characteristically. Characteristically because every MS team is known for team efforts rather than star players. This team was collectively the best just like SRH this season. They beat SRH in the Qualifier last game and guess who popped up, Faf Du Plessis, playing his 2nd game in a row after a long time. There’s always someone who gets the job done.
CSK will have the upper hand as they have beaten SRH thrice this season. Twice in the league and once in the Qualifier.

CSK vs SRH Dream11 Key players:
CSK: Lungi Ngidi. Ngidi has been in brilliant form the last two games. If he manages to kill off the top order, we know how SRH can crumble in the middle.
Shardul Thakur. CSK’s best bowling option also changed the game with his bat last time. He’ll look to contribute with both.
SRH: Kane Williamson. Cometh the hour, Cometh the man. This is his time and if he leads from the front, then CSK will have a match on their hands.
Rashid Khan. Batting. Bowling. Fielding. Last game was probably the Afghan’s best in the season. A big match player with 3 wickets and a brilliant cameo of 34 in just 10 balls, he’ll be the main man against CSK.

Wicketkeeper: MS Dhoni will be the selection given his form in the competition.
