The fourteenth edition of the Indian Premier League is nearing the halfway point, and the caravan has now moved on to the second leg of the competition, with matches taking place in Ahmedabad and Delhi. Sunrisers Hyderabad, who are currently at the bottom of the table, will be hoping that a change of venue will help them improve their fortunes.

Chennai Super Kings, on the other hand, are at the polar opposite end of the spectrum from Sunrisers Hyderabad, and are flying high thanks to their outstanding results in the tournament so far. This are two of the most famous teams in the tournament, and the upcoming matchup will be exciting. On April 28, 2021, the match will be held at Delhi’s Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium.



Chennai Super Kings continued their winning ways with a thrilling victory over Kolkata Knight Riders in a hard-fought match. The victory propelled the Super Kings to the top of the heap, putting them in a safe position to advance to the next round. They currently have eight points from five games, including four victories. Furthermore, they have a fantastic net run rate of 1.612, which can be useful in determining the top-two teams or qualifying for the playoffs.

It’s too early to make any predictions about the final rankings, but another four wins for CSK should be enough to advance them to the next round. They still have nine games to go, and based on their recent form, they’d have to do something dreadful to miss out on the playoffs.

The Super Kings have been clinical in every match they’ve played so far, and it was no different in their most recent match. Given that they are a team that thrives on slower, turning surfaces, the transfer to Delhi should benefit them greatly.

Chennai Super Kings are a super-versatile side with a batting lineup that extends all the way to number ten and a wide range of bowling choices for Mahendra Singh Dhoni. They’ve been outstanding in terms of execution, and they should be aiming for another win. The type of MS Dhoni may be their only source of concern, but considering their batting lineup, they shouldn’t be too concerned. Overall, defeating CSK will be a monumental undertaking, particularly for the SRH side, which is lacking in confidence.


Sunrisers Hyderabad, the polar opposite of the Super Kings, have struggled in the tournament. They were moments away from winning the previous match, but a series of bad decisions cost them a couple of crucial points. They were relegated to the bottom of the points table as a result of the defeat. They currently have two points from five games, with one draw. The only thing going for them is that all of their defeats have been close, but their net run rate still seems to be respectable for a team that has lost four games.

The Sunrisers would definitely fall behind in the chase for the playoffs unless they can put together a string of positive results quickly. The primary cause for the Sunrisers’ poor success has been their middle-order batting, which seems toothless. The return of Kane Williamson has provided some balance to the rotation, but the lack of anyone to smash lusty hits late in the game is proving costly.

Aside from his bad batting results, David Warner has made some shocking decisions both on and off the field. There were also debates over coming out ahead of Jonny Bairstow in the super-over against the Delhi Capitals in the previous contest. About the fact that David Warner has scored a lot of runs, he hasn’t seemed like himself so far. He’s been unable to get going and is being fired for failing to capitalise on the opportunities he’s been given.

The Sunrisers, on the other hand, continue to impress in the bowling department. They were without Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the previous match, but they still managed to hold the Capitals to a manageable total. Manish Pandey is expected to return to the foot, but this time as a finisher rather than a sheet anchor. If they succeed, they will have access to their middle-order, which is something they desperately require.

Overall, the Sunrisers Hyderabad are desperate for a win and would need a lot more than their overseas stars to perform. They miss the poise and assurance that they usually exude on the big stage. However, it will only be a matter of time before they recover their form and start scaring even the strongest of sides. Even the roaring Super Kings would have to work hard to defeat them if they return to their best form.
