Both CSK and SRH have been winless in the tournament so far.
Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad will face each other in the 17th match of IPL 2022, to play on the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai. CSK were champions last season, while SRH had the opposite result, finishing at the bottom of the points list. Both teams are in the same boat this season, however, as they are looking for their first win. Chennai will play their first game at this venue this year, while SRH lost to LSG on this site by 12 runs.
CSK has lost two of their games hitting first and the other in the chase. SRH, on the other hand, have both lost their games while hunting. Both teams have a net run rate of less than -1, indicating that their batting and bowling have both not been good.
Last season’s Orange Cap winner Ruturaj Gaikwad has three single-digit scores so far, while Ambati Rayudu has also failed to make a single useful shot. MS Dhoni, who appeared to have his mojo back in the first two games, played a disappointing 23 (28) knockout against PBKS. Shivam Dube, now a specialized batter, has landed two impressive and significant hits in the last two games. Since it’s the side with the worst bowling average, their bowling unit has to answer a lot of questions.
After a massive defeat to RR in the first match, Sunrisers Hyderabad followed it up with a much better show against LSG, only to lose again. David Warner’s absence was evident as SRH looked from a different side, with openers Abhishek Sharma and Kane Williamson falling early in both games.
An improved mid-range with useful hits from Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran and Washington Sundar was the only positive for SRH this season. Bhuvneshwar Kumar controlled runs and T Natarajan was able to pick wickets but the other SRH bowlers didn’t contribute much. New skipper Ravindra Jadeja would love to win the first game for CSK against another scoreless side SRH.
