In the current edition of the Indian Premier League, four of the league’s most reliable teams are all grouped together at the bottom of the standings. The consistency of the Chennai Super Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Mumbai Indians, and Delhi Capitals has been a source of frustration, as has the play of the latter two.
Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad square off in a crucial bottom-of-the-table showdown in the Indian Premier League. Both of these teams have struggled so far in the tournament and will be desperate for a victory here to change their fortunes. On April 9th, 2022, the D.Y. Patil Stadium in Mumbai will host the match between the two teams.
CSK vs SRH Team Previews
Chennai Super Kings
They may not be panicking yet, but the post-match presentations clearly show that Chennai Super Kings aren’t far from it. They’ve already lost three games due to a lacklustre showing in the batting department. At least until now, their bowling hasn’t looked up to the task of competing in high-scoring venues.
While Chennai Super Kings have a similar amount of depth as they did last year, they haven’t been able to translate that into winning performances. At least one of Moeen Ali and Ruturaj Gaikwad hasn’t been at their best, so a good start with the bat for CSK is imperative.
Chennai Super Kings appear to be a well-balanced side on paper, but they have batting options available throughout the order. Even if their only goal is to improve their slog over bowling, it will be extremely difficult to beat them if they can do so in the upcoming match.

Ravindra Jadeja (c), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (wk), Shivam Dube, Dwayne Bravo, Chris Jordan, Devon Conway, Mukesh Choudhary.
Since the start of the previous season, the Sunrisers’ fortunes have been grim. Even before the auction, they had already lost Rashid Khan, and early indications suggested that David Warner would never return to Sunrisers Hyderabad. Sunrisers Hyderabad have yet to see a return on their investment in Kane Williamson, both as a batsman and as captain.
Even if their auction strategy went awry, their in-game strategy thus far has been on another level. Adding insult to injury, the players’ inability to respond offensively has been the primary reason for the Sunrisers’ continued relegation from contention. At the end of their previous game, they were just inches away from winning, but some sloppy batting in the dying moments cost them the victory.
However, the Sunrisers have performed well on the bowling front, which is surprising given the absence of Rashid Khan, who had previously driven the Sunrisers’ middle-overs attack. T Natarajan and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar are examples of batsmen who have performed well with the ball. It’s possible that they’ll make a small adjustment for the upcoming match, but that might be too soon for them. To put it simply: if they can improve their batting, the Sunrisers Hyderabad could make it difficult for anyone else to get past them because they have such a formidable bowling attack.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Playing 11
Kane Williamson (c), Abhishek Sharma, Glenn Phillips, Rahul Tripathi, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Abdul Samad, Romario Shepherd, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik.
