Chennai: Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) would bank on their famed foreign recruits to come good when they take on the formidable Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their opening match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 on Saturday. Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL 2015 Match 4 Preview

The visitors will have to put up an inspiring effort to down Super Kings, who kick started their campaign with a one-run win over Delhi Daredevils at Chennai on Thursday night. Indian Premier League 2015 schedule: IPL 8 match time table with venue details

Led by aggressive Australian opener David Warner, Sunrisers would be relying mostly on foreigners to deliver the goods, given the scarcity of local stars in their ranks. Shikhar Dhawan is the lone Indian batting star in the line-up and a lot would be expected of him after his impressive run in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 Down Under. IPL 2015: CSK, KKR, RCB, KXIP, MI, RR, SRH, DD full team details in IPL 8

With an array of foreigners it will be interesting to see which four the Sunrisers pick in their playing eleven. Besides captain, South African speedster Dale Steyn and in-form New Zealand pacer Trent Boult are most likely to get a go. Chennai Super Kings begin IPL 2015 with 1-run victory over Delhi Daredevils

The pitch offered enough assistance to the spinners last night and that is something both captains will keep in mind while selecting the eleven.

Dhoni-led Super Kings did pull off another close game but tomorrow they would want to put up a much better batting show than what they managed against Delhi. Not many teams in the competition would mind chasing 151 at Chepauk but Delhi threw away a golden opportunity.

The bowling lot would be high on confidence with old horse Ashish Nehra bagging the man of the match award against Delhi and Ravichandran Ashwin troubling the batsmen with his genuine off-spinners.
