- CSJ have a 10-4 head-to-head lead over Sunrisers Hyderabad.

After a shaky start in the Indian Premier League, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have found their feet in the 2021 edition (IPL). The MS Dhoni-led team has won four games in a row and is among the Championship table-toppers.
The Yellow Army had previously defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by 69 runs at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, thanks to Ravindra Jadeja’s 37-runs off one over. The Super Kings will play against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi on Wednesday, April 28.
The Orange Army was defeated by the Delhi Capitals (DC) in their most recent match after the game went to the Super Over. David Warner and his teammates will be aiming to achieve a victory and climb the ladder after being dropped to the bottom of the points table.
CSK VS SRH Head To Head:
When we talk about this season’s top performing players from both the team, Ravindra Jadeja’s performance in the game against RCB was arguably the best individual performance of the season so far. He made 62 runs off 28 deliveries and took three wickets. Also, Faf du Plessis hit his second half-century against Bangalore. In each of his last four games, he has scored 30 runs or more. On the other hand, David Warner, the captain of SRH, had a rare failure in the last game, but he had already scored 30+ runs in three of the previous games.
When it comes to bowling, Rashid Khan from SRH has taken at least one wicket in every match he has played in IPL 2021, with the exception of one game against Mumbai Indians. He’s also been extremely economical by only giving away 30+ runs only once whereas, Deepak Chahar from CSK has been on-and-off this season, but in his last four games, he has taken eight wickets. We should expect a strong performance from him in this match based on his track record.
Both teams have played 14 games against each other in IPL history, with CSK dominating the SRH team by winning 10 of them. In the last two seasons, however, both teams have won two games each when they have faced off.
Having said this, let us take a closer look at their past 5 meetings.
