Rashid Khan has the highest strike in CSKvsSRH matches. (425 is his strike rate)
M.A Chidambaram Stadium is CSK’s fortress and is tough to defeat there.
SRH have won their last two games including a win against the CSK and CSK have lost their two games in the tournament.
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:
SRH look settled and most probably won’t make any changes.
They have an option of picking an Abhishek Sharma just keeping the track in mind to get an extra spin option.
They should try to bring in Manish Pandey as well. Just give him a final opportunity.
CSK may bring in Harbhajan Singh or Mitchell Santner in place of Shardul Thakur for the Chennai Track.
They don’t make too many changes but maybe they can go for Sam Billings for Shane Watson and shift Ambati Upto Opening slot.
