Chennai Super Kings and SunRisers Hyderabad will lock horns in Dubai on Tuesday for the second time in IPL 2020. Chennai Super Kings and SunRisers Hyderabad are both coming off convincing losses; however, the latter’s campaign is in a relatively better spot. On the other hand, with five defeats out of seven under their belt, CSK are in real peril of not reaching the playoffs for the first time.
After their resounding victory over Kings XI Punjab by ten wickets, Chennai Super Kings’ batting line-up, openers in particular, seemed to have rediscovered their mojo. However, it only got worse after falling short of ten runs against Kolkata Knight Riders followed by a 37-run loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore. The prospect of chasing scores in all the games so far has not helped their cause either. Hence, the clash against the SunRisers could be their final chance of keeping their playoffs hopes alive.

Venue: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai, UAE

SRH vs CSK Match Prediction:
Both teams are coming off losses in their respective previous matches and with the business end of the tournament not far away, now will be the time for the two sides to start afresh and gallop towards the playoff spot. It’s been a busy week thus far for Chennai Super Kings and they’d like to top it off with a much-needed win. Sunrisers Hyderabad, as well, will be fancying their chances on a venue that will likely suit their style of batting. We make our predictions after calculating each and every aspect of the match that is why we are the best tipper of IPL. Languishing in the bottom half of the points table, both sides will be under a tremendous amount of pressure and experience could be a key in the upcoming contest.
Chennai Super Kings have that in plenty in addition to a batting lineup that goes deep. Also, we saw Dubai’s surface slowing down a bit in the last match and that could play to CSK’s advantage. For that and the other reasons stated above, we think that the Super Kings are better placed to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter.
