Three-time defending champions Chennai Super Kings will take on David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad in match 14 of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. The two teams will square off at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai on October 2 (Thursday) from 7:30 PM (IST) onwards.
The current situation of both the teams is somewhat similar as CSK occupy the last spot while SRH is lagging on the seventh position of the Points Table. The Chennai-based franchise opened their account with an emphatic victory over Mumbai Indians in their maiden game but failed to register a victory in the next two matches. On the other hand, SRH lost their first couple of clashes before winning their third one.
The delightful news for CSK is that both their experienced players Ambati Rayudu and Dwayne Bravo are fit and will feature in this game. On the other hand, David Warner and co. may play this game with the same XI after winning their last encounter.
