Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the 50th match of the IPL 2014 at Ranchi on Thursday. Both the teams will be looking for a win, but for totally contrasting reasons. While Chennai will be eyeing a win to break their streak of two consecutive losses, Hyderabad will be eyeing a desperate win to stay alive in the competition.

Dwayne Smith has been CSK’s batsman of the season so far, and it will interesting to see how he plans his innings against Dale Steyn and co. Suresh Raina has also been in good form of late, and will look to carry that in this match.

The middle overs have proved to be the biggest Achilles heel’ for Hyderabad. In their emphatic win against Royal Challengers Bangalore in their previous match, Hyderabad might have found the solution with David Warner being reinstated at his preferred opening slot. Chennai have breezed through most of the games, but this encounter promises to make the hosts sweat. For Hyderabad, Bhuvneshwar  has even put Dale Steyn to shade with his bowling so far, while Ravichandran Ashwin and Mohit Sharma have been Chennai’s bowling architects.

 

The Ranchi crowd have turned up in large numbers to support their favourite son, MS Dhoni. In fact, there should be no dearth of support for the two-time Champions.
