Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is the most consistent team in the IPL league stage reaching playoffs in all 10 seasons they were a part of. This year, however, they seemed a shadow of their former selves, losing two of their first three matches in IPL 2020. After two consecutive defeats, MS Dhoni and his men will face David Warner’s SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH), who returned after two suffered consecutive defeats to defeat a solid opposition Delhi Capitals in their previous match. The fight will be interesting as both teams currently hold the last two places in the IPL 2020 points table and a win would help either of these two bridge the gap with those above them.
The three-time champion is currently bottom in the points table, but one team that can’t be taken lightly given their excellent past records against most teams is CSK.
While the start of CSK has left their fans disappointed, the head-to-head stats against the Hyderabad-based franchise should make them optimistic and bring that smile back to their faces.
They faced each other 13 times, with CSK taking the top 10 times, including one in the Champions League, while SRH managed to take just three wins over their southern neighbors.
