The Chennai Super Kings are finding it tough in the second half with back to back defeats over the last week. The batting performances of the top order are hurting the team’s chances repeatedly. The defending champions played their last four matches away from home in which only MS Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu aggregated over 100 runs. They will now take on the in-form Sunrisers Hyderabad who are quite opposite to CSK in terms of the batting power.
All the key stats and numbers that matter ahead of CSK’s home clash against SRH:
