IPL 2021: CSK vs SRH, Match 23: Pitch Report, Probable XIs and Match Prediction


In the 23rd match of the ongoing IPL, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will face-off Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi.

After defeating Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in a one-sided game, CSK have proved their mettle in the T20 tournament. Both the top and the lower order batters have been firing for the MS Dhoni-led team. Among the bowlers, Deepak Chahar, Imran Tahir, and Shardul Thakur look in good touch. CSK will play the same team they fielded in the last match.

Whereas, unfortunately, SRH are placed at the bottom of the IPL points-table. David Warner & Co. came very close to winning the last match against Delhi Capitals (DC) but lost in the Super Over. The ‘Orange Army’ will make no changes in their playing XI from the last game.
