In the previous fixture between the two teams, CSK won the game by 20 runs. In Wednesday’s game, both teams will be counting on their in-form players to guide them to victory, let’s have a look at the three game-changers ahead of the SRH vs CSK fixture:
- Kane Williamson
SRH’s batting order seemed to be improved after the inclusion of Kane Williamson in their playing XI. He has been the most dependable player in Hyderabad’s batting order for the past couple of IPLs. In the previous game, Williamson was the highest scorer for Hyderabad, he played a sensible knock on a tricky pitch and kept his team in the game. David Warner will count on Williamson to play yet another crucial knock against CSK on Wednesday.
- Faf du Plessis
Faf du Plessis has the highest average of 71.33 in the IPL 2021 so far with 214 runs in five games. He has been the most consistent batsman for CSK in the ongoing season. From giving a start to building a partnership in the middle overs, Mahendra Singh Dhoni can count on the former South African captain to bring his A-game against SRH.
- Rashid Khan
The SRH’s mystery spinner has been David Warner’s trump card for the past couple of years. Rashid Khan is Hyderabad’s go-to bowler who could give the much-needed breakthrough in the middle overs. Khan has troubled MSD in the past, the SRH camp would expect him to keep the CSK skipper silent and play an instrumental role in the game.
