The 23rd match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 is set to take place between the table-toppers Chennai Super Kings and the bottom dwellers- Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, this Wednesday.
The Chennai Super Kings have managed to bury the ghosts of the last season as they have been in impeccable form this season and they look well in shape to make it to their record 11th play-offs. Their opponents Sunrisers have found themselves in a rough patch after managing to win just one match in their five games so far and they would be hoping they can get to winning ways before it is too late.
Can Chennai Super Kings register their 5th win in a row? Or will David Warner and Co. be able to break the shackles and evade their way from the bottom of the table?

With the temperatures soaring in Delhi, the players are expected to have a tough outing at this venue. Though the evening schedule might soothe things, the temperature is expected to be hovering in 37-32 degrees Celsius and the humidity at the peak is likely to touch the 12 percent mark.
The pitch in Delhi has been widely regarded as a bowler-friendly one and the spinners are likely to have a wonderful time with the ball at the slow-turner. The team winning the toss should be looking to bowl first as the teams chasing have enjoyed greater success at this venue. The dew factor could also come into play but is not expected to play a vital role in the outcome of the game.
Chennai Super Kings have been in tremendous touch ever since their defeat in their opening match they have been foes with the word defeat. With the team well balanced and the pitch in favor of the slow bowlers, we expect the same line-up to take the field.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have no privilege of fiddling with their foreign slots as the four names seemed to be must-picks in their line-up. With Virat Singh struggling to find any form, we might see Manish Pandey replace the Jharkhand batsman. Abishek Sharma too has been struggling to contribute and he could be replaced by the hard-hitter Abdul Samad.
Probable Playing Xl
Chennai Super Kings (CSK): Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (c & wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, Imran Tahir
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH): David Warner (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Kane Williamson, Virat Singh/ Manish Pandey, Vijay Shankar, Abhishek Sharma/ Abdul Samad, Kedar Jadhav, Rashid Khan, Jagadeesha Suchith, Khaleel Ahmed, Siddarth Kaul
Faf du Plessis has been the go-to man for the Chennai Super Kings and is currently the third-highest run-getter in the league. As far as Sunrisers are considered Jonny Bairstow and Kane Willaimson are the only players who have been able to contribute with the bat and their form suggests that they will be the key once again. Ravindra Jadeja has been a great asset for the Men in Yellow, both with the bat and ball.
