IPL 2023: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will lock horns with Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the 29th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the M A Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday, April 21st.
The Super Kings are now third in the standings after winning three of their last five games. They defeated the Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last match, prevailing by an 8-run margin.
Sunrisers, on the other hand, are in second-to-last place in the points standings after winning just two of their first five games. After losing their first two games, they picked up momentum after winning two straight games. However, they lost the previous game to the Mumbai Indians.
Here are the playing XI tip-off for the CSK vs SRH match:
Stokes to miss out
Grappling with a heel injury, England all-rounder Ben Stokes is likely to miss his fourth consecutive match as CSK host SRH tonight. Meanwhile, Kiwi all-rounder Mitchell Santner has recovered from illness and is available for selection.
Adil Rashid to get a game
The spin attack of Sunrisers lacks depth. In order to maintain team balance, they have been playing Washington Sundar and Mayank Markande while benching Adil Rashid and Akeal Hosein. Given the Chepauk conditions, skipper Markram might bring in the international spinners to combat the explosive Chennai batters.
Malik in for Natarajan
SRH spearhead Umran Malik is likely to be back in the playing XI. If he is recruited in the lineup, T Natrajan will have to warm the bench.
CSK vs SRH Pitch Report: The two games played thus far in Chennai have provided nice batting surfaces with room for spinners. The trend of pricey quick bowlers might persist. Warm and humid conditions are anticipated.
