Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) suffered their first loss of the tournament in their fourth match and will be eager to get back to winning ways soon. They will host the in-form Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in first of the two matches on Sunday. While SRH are a strong unit and are very tough to beat at home, CSK has got used to playing away matches as there are no more home games in Chennai for them. However, the weather in Hyderabad is also crucial for the game to take place.
Shikhar Dhawan is in doubt for this match after copping a blow to his hand while batting against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). It will be interesting to see which player will replace him in case he is not fit for the game. For CSK too, Ambati Rayudu looked in some sort of a pain while fielding in the game against Royals but he should be fine and raring to hit the straps ahead of this game.
How is the climate?
According to Accu Weather, it is currently hazy in Hyderabad and the temperatures are hovering around 34 Degree Celsius and given that it is an afternoon start to the game, the players will have to cope with a lot of heat. There will be a decent cloud cover of around 48 percent but there are no chances of rain whatsoever in the lead up to or during the course of the match. The crowd has been excellent so far at all the venues and being the weekend, the Stadium is expected to be jam-packed.
Overall Verdict: SRH and CSK cricketers will have to bear the scorching heat while playing under the sun but the climate will cool down in the evening it seems and they will enjoy their time in the middle.
