Chennai Super Kings have so far looked ordinary in IPL 2020. The usually consistent side of MS Dhoni has so far only managed to win 2 from 7 matches. In their previous match, they were humbled by RCB as their batting woes continued.
Sunrisers Hyderabad on the other hand is too coming on the back of a loss. The SRH side crumbled under pressure and lost against RR a game which they bossed for the majority of the overs.

The players of Chennai Super Kings and SRH will have to adapt to the heat of Dubai as the temperatures in the evening will be fluttering around 30 degrees Celcius.
The 22 yards at Dubai has been ideal to bat on in the first innings but in the second half it has slowed down a touch. So once again the captain winning the toss will be looking to bat first and defend it later on.

Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad: Top Fantasy Picks

Sam Curran: The all-rounder has done extremely well in the season so far. Both with the bat and ball Curran has looked the part in the competition.
Against SRH it might be even possible that Curran is promoted to bat higher as skipper Dhoni has already hinted that his side will be more expressive in the coming matches.
