Two teams with impressive records are up for the challenge tonight. The Chennai team is at top form with four continuous wins and will look to continue their prime form. On the other side, the Hyderabad team is struggling in the 2021 season. The team has the lost three matches hence will look to get back to their winning ways.
Chennai displayed a dominating performance against the Bangalore team in the last match. The performance of Jadeja changed the game completely, especially the last over cameo in the first innings. With the concept of home advantage eliminated this season, teams play the league matches in different states. With the first schedule over in Mumbai, the team is heading to the capital for the next schedule of games.
The Hyderabad team took the game till the last and also went for a super over but couldn’t make it in the end. The top order would look to impact the game; they did in the previous seasons. The main focus will be to find the best combinations and get back the form.
Today’s game is to be played at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi. The pitch is a fairly decent pitch to bat with an average score of around 160. The temperature during the match time is expected to be around 37 degree Celsius. There isn’t any chance for rain, and there isn’t a huge number with regard to the humidity level.
Head to Head records
Both teams have met on 14 occasions in the league history. Chennai has a clear edge in the head to head records by winning ten games in the past.
The team has provided a much-improved performance when compared to the last season’s performance. The performances of the team in this season are because of complete teamwork. The number of performers is increasing match by match. There would be something extra the team will expect from the likes of Rayudu and Thakur. Both players have a great ability to change the course of the game but haven’t been in that touch as far as now.
Even though the team has big names, the winning record hasn’t matched the mark. There’s a lot of strength in the batting department. The team has been equally struggling in defending and chasing totals. The captain will have to step up in his performance and also must make sure to get the best combinations in his playing 11. The Kiwi skip will need partners from one end to support the team’s performance. Initially, Hyderabad is a team known for its tough bowling attack, but it hasn’t been the same. The team needs a change in the planning to get back to winning ways.
