IPL 2021 – SRH VS CSK | Match Preview | Key Players | Stats | Dream 11 Prediction | Pitch Report

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings will face each other in match number 44 of IPL 2021. The action will take place at Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah on September 30.

A game in Sharjah means a six-hitting contest between two teams as boundaries are short but story has been different this time. Wickets have been slow and batsmen have struggled to play their shots.

CSK and SRH both have been completely opposite to each other in IPL 2021. CSK is on top of points table and have qualified for playoffs whereas SRH are at the bottom and are out of IPL 2021. CSK’s opening pair have been the biggest plus for them in IPL 2021. The duo of Faf and Ruturaj have added 50 runs for first wickets in most of the games and have given them solid starts. SRH on the other hand have struggled with their batting. Their opening clicked after a long time in last game after they dropped David Warner once again. Jason Roy and Saha gave them a blistering start in last game helping them secure their second win of the tournament. Both the teams have decent bowling attacks and have done good job more often than not.

CSK has a strong middle order whereas SRH’s another problem is their middle order. Players are not taking responsibility to play big innings. They couldn’t chase even 125 against PBKS.

SRH won their last match and things looked to get better with middle-order batting too. They will look to repeat their last match performance and win third match of the season.

CSK have played brilliant cricket so far and they would look to continue doing it. They are now looking to finish in top 2 and winning this match would almost confirm it.

CSK VS SRH Key Players


  • Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad have given solid start to CSK in most of the matches.  CSK has scored around 50 runs in first 6 overs in every game barring one or two. Top order was their weakness in IPL 2020 but they have turned it into strength this time. Faf has scored 294 runs against SRH in IPL and has two fifty scores.
  • Ravindra Jadeja gave a allround performance in last match. He gave away just 21 runs in his 4 overs and picked one wicket. Not just with the ball, Jadeja was also game changer for CSK in match against KKR. He scored 22 runs in just 8 balls and won the match for his team.
  • Shardul Thakur picked 2 wickets in last match. He has the ability to bowl at any stage of the game and has art of picking wickets. Shardul has picked 10 wickets so far in IPL 2021.


  • Jason Roy made his SRH debut in last game and scored brilliant 50. He is one of the most dangerous T20 players and can be the answers to SRH’s problems. Roy will look to target short boundaries at Sharjah and score big once again.
  • Skipper Kane scored brilliant half-century in last match and finished the match. He has good record against CSK and has scored runs at an average of 46.26
  • Jason Holder was man of the match last time SRH played at Sharjah. Sharjah’s wicket suited his style of bowling as he picked 3 wickets. He also scored 47* runs in just 29 but couldn’t take his team home. He would like to repeat his performance and win the game for his team.
  • Rashid Khan would look to improve his record against CSK. He doesn’t have very good record against them and has picked only 9 wickets.

    • SRH – 4

Pitch Report

Sharjah’s pitch has been favourable for bowling as ball doesn’t come on to bat nicely. Run scoring is a bit easy till the ball is new and batting becomes hard once the ball gets soft.
