Defending champions Chennai Super Kings will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 17th match of IPL 2022 on Saturday. Super Kings are in a terrible position at the moment having lost all their 3 matches played. Even though they batted second in their previous match they failed to chase the target against the inexperienced bowling attack of Punjab Kings and encountered a 54-run loss. They need to do something different if they want to secure their first points on the table.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, had an excellent opportunity to beat Lucknow Super Giants in their previous match, however they lost wickets at crucial moments which cost them gaining their first points. No doubt they have got specialists death bowlers such as Natarajan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar but they lack finishers with the bat who can win games for them.

Top Picks for CSK vs SRH Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
Not the ideal start for the previous year’s Orange Cap holder Ruturaj Gaikwad, who failed to impress in the first 3 matches, managing to score just 2 runs. There is no dearth of the talent and he just needs one good game to come back into the form.
Rahul Tripathi was playing some unreal shots against Punjab Kings and got dismissed after scoring 44 runs from 30 balls. He is expected to do well in this match.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Moeen Ali is an impact player for Chennai Super Kings at No.3. He added 35 runs in the last 2 matches at a strike rate of 145.83.
Washington Sundar is a good buy for your fantasy teams. He is a trump card for Sunrisers with the ball and can even score runs in the middle. In 2 matches in this tournament, he has scored 58 runs and bagged 2 wickets.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Playing his first match for Chennai Super Kings, Chris Jordan didn’t disappoint with the ball and picked up 2 wickets against Punjab Kings at an economy of 5.75. He is good at executing pin-point yorkers at the death and a good pick for your fantasy teams.
T Natarajan is the main bowler for Sunrisers who can control the run-flow in the middle and death overs. In the last 2 matches, he has picked up 4 wickets at an economy of 8.62.
Top Picks – Wicketkeepers
Nicholas Pooran showed more intent in the last game against Super Giants and got out at the wrong time for 34 runs. Sunrisers need much improved performances from him in this match.
