Chennai Super Kings have been on a roll this IPL winning 8 out of 10 matches played so far, on the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad have failed to find their rhythm as they have been on the opposite side of the spectrum, having won just 2 matches out of the 10 they have played in this campaign so far.
On one hand, CSK has defeated every team at least once, while SRH has only managed to defeat Punjab Kings and Rajasthan Royals, and those were not close matches, which means, if SRH finds their rhythm early on in the game, they could win today’s match, but there are a lot of “what ifs” for out liking. CSK will be the winner of today’s match given their track record in this tournament as well as against SRH as a whole.
