Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings, the two bottom-placed teams in the points table, will be up against each other, in a match that is very crucial for both the teams. After suffering back-to-back losses, Sunrisers returned to winning ways with a triumph over Delhi Capitals in the last match.

Despite that win, they still seem to have a brittle middle-order to worry about, and a pace-bowling attack which has consistency, but lacks pace and a certain X-factor. Chennai, on the other hand, have had an unexpected start to the tournament and look extremely troubled at this point. Their top order seems to lack firepower and their spinners haven’t been able to have an impact at all.

Their overseas fast bowlers also haven’t provided any benefits to them. They are up against a side which have just started getting into a winning momentum and CSK will be hoping to find their own groove in this match as well.

With both teams having a few misfiring stars, here are three players you can exclude from you Dream11 team for CSK vs SRH game:

1. Ravindra Jadeja (9 credits)

The biggest disappointment for CSK this year has been Ravindra Jadeja’s performance. He has picked up just two wickets in three games, but the biggest problem has been his economy, which after three games stands at 10.5. He has conceded more than 40 in his quota of four overs in all the three games.

He hasn’t done much with the bat either. With someone like David Warner in the opposition, MS Dhoni will be even more hesitant to hand the ball to Jadeja. Keeping all these factors in mind, you can exclude him from your team.

2. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (9 credits)

Prior to the last game against Delhi Capitals, Bhuvneshwar hadn’t picked a single wicket in two games. While he has bowled with a good economy, his pace has been slightly down and hasn’t looked threatening enough.

Against an experienced CSK line up which can play medium pace well, Bhuvneshwar might be even more ineffective. Hence from purely a fantasy cricket perspective, you can keep Kumar out of your team.

3. Murali Vijay (8.5 credits)

A player, who had the golden opportunity to show his worth to the franchise, but has wasted it away, is Murali Vijay. The talented batsman who, a decade back was one of the most impactful players for CSK, has looked badly out of touch.

Despite opening the innings, and batting in the powerplay, Vijay has managed just 32 runs in three games at a miserable strike rate of 75. With Ambati Rayudu being fit, he anyways might not play, but even if he does, not much should be expected from Vijay.
