IPL 2020, Indian Premier League, SunRisers Hyderabad vs Chennai Super Kings Preview: Beleaguered CSK Meet Under-Pressure SRH
ISLAMABAD, October 12 (online): The best part about the SunRisers Hyderabad-Chennai Super Kings match at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Tuesday is that one of them will come away with two points. That, however, will be quite a blow for the other side, since as IPL 2020 approaches the business end, it will become more and more difficult to recover. While SRH show odd signs of life, CSK seem to have entered the twilight zone, with no end in sight to their miseries, especially on the batting front.
SRH made a fist of trying to defend a mediocre score against Rajasthan Royals in their last match and but for a rocking partnership between RiyanParag and Rahul Tewatia, they may well have come off with a near-upset.
That doesn’t take away from the fact that defending 158 against a half-decent side will more often than not result in a loss.
CSK, on their part, fell prey to their poor batting and the combination of ViratKohli finally taking off and South African fast bowler Chris Morris taking the field.
Kohli hammered the bowling like only he can when in form, getting 90 not out off 52 balls and then Morris, playing his first IPL 2020 match, returned figures of 3/19.
