This year’s IPL has been a solution to melancholy experienced by everyone . Half of the tournament is over, and still, we have experienced some extraordinary feats some in a positive way or some in a negative. Worst of all, 2020 is not a good year for CSK fans firstly Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh opted out of the league leaving a crack in the champion team. CSK has lost 5 matches out of 7 and is almost at the bottom of the table . From always on the top to see them at the bottom is a hard sight for cricket fans. Sunrisers Hyderabad also failed to make an impact in this year’s IPL and they have not been consistent in their performance so far. They have won 3 out of 7 matches. Now lets who won this CSK Vs SRH clash.
Head To Head Clash Between CSK Vs SRH
SRH is far behind in terms of winnings. CSK won 9 matches whereas SRH won only 4 matches but this year CSK is different from what they were in previous years. This is because csk is the lack in batting as they majorly missing their most prominent batsman Suresh Raina.
Positive For CSK
1. Bowling at the Middle Overs
Their Spinners are doing a good job in the middle overs as they are economical and takes wickets. They have spinners like Ravindra Jadeja, Karan Sharma, and Piyush Chawla who have lots of experience of this game, and they help them to restrict opponents under 170-180 which is chaseable in this format.
Weakness Of CSK
1. Lack Of Hard Hitter
The main reason for CSK losses is their batting Till the 15 or 16 overs their run rate is less than 6.5 runs. This causes an increase in extra pressure on the middle and lower-order batsman. Do you know this year CSK is at the bottom in terms of most no. of sixes. They just hit 35 sixes in their 7 games.
2. Lack Of Strike Rotation
The other main cause of their poor batting is the lack of strike rotation. Either they hit a boundary or they just play the dot ball and when there are too many dot balls then they try to hit the ball and get out. In the Last Game, CSK played 40 dot balls which means that 1/3 of the innings they scored zero runs. This is the main reason why they build pressure on themselves by not taking the singles and double at the start of their batting.
Positive For SRH

SRH is highly dependent on their opening pair as after that there middle order is exposed. Acc. to reports 63% of their runs are scored by their openers. This stat show much they depend on their openers.
2. Variety Of Spinners
They have a variety of Quality spinners like Abdul Samad, Abhishek Sharma, and match-winner Rashid khan which can win the match for his team from any situation. He is also the leading wicket-taker for SRH. He not only takes wicket but also didn’t give runs too easily. His economy is also less than 6 rpo (Runs per over). This is their biggest advantage as CSK find difficulties to play with the spinners.
Weakness Of SRH
1. Bhuvneswar Kumar is Ruled Out
Their lead bowler and Vice-Captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar is ruled out from the tournament. He takes the wickets for them with the new ball by swinging the ball on both sides. Especially he made difficulties for CSK opener Shane Watson.
2. Lost Wickets in Collapse
As soon as their openers get out their middle order is exposed and if the opponent takes 1 or 2 wickets they start losing wickets in a short period of time.
