TOSS: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have won the toss and elect to field first.

Hello and welcome to Indian Premier League (IPL) 2015 Match 34 between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and table-toppers Chennai Super Kings (CSK) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad on Saturday. The home side, SRH, are stagnating in the middle of the points table at six points from seven games, and cannot afford to lose too many matches from here on. CSK, who lost their last game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), are always a tough side to beat. IPL 2015 Highest run-scorer: List of best batsmen in IPL 8

So far in IPL 2015, SRH have been criticised for having a top-heavy batting line-up. Their lack of firepower in the middle-order have cost them dearly. On the other hand, CSK are a team that bat quite deep, and their batting seemingly never ends. If Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith don’t get you, Faf du Plessis and Suresh Raina will. If not them, then MS Dhoni and Dwayne Bravo will. Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, and now even Pawan Negi have done well. With Irfan Pathan waiting in the wings, CSK are undoubtedly the more dangerous side. READ: Irfan Pathan will lend Chennai Super Kings depth and stability

Purple cap holder Ashish Nehra has been CSK’s spearhead, and has done a commendable job. He has been backed up well by the likes of Mohit Sharma, Bravo, Jadeja, Ishwar Pandey, and Negi. In this edition of IPL, Jadeja’s left-arm spin hasn’t been very effective so far. In the middle over, he is an important bowler form CSK. So Jadeja will be desperate to do well against SRH, who have a lot of right-handers in their middle order. IPL 2015 Points Table & Team Standings

In terms of current form and team combinations, CSK will go into the game as favourites, but T20 is funny format and it won’t be surprising if SRH manage to pull this off in their first game at Hyderabad. IPL 2015 Highest wicket-taker: List of best bowlers in IPL 8
