Though 3 times Indian Premier League or IPL winner Chennai Super Kings captained by Indian great Mahendra Singh Dhoni, won the inaugural match of IPL 2020 against former champions Mumbai Indians, they stumbled to win the other two matches, losing both of them against Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals currently positioned at seventh in the league table. The only consistent performer for them has been their power player Faf du Plessis hailing from South Africa scoring 173 runs in 3 matches. Their highest wicket-taker is the English Sam Curran with 5 wickets in 3 matches.
On the other hand, their opposition is 1-time IPL winner Sunrisers Hyderabad captained by Australian David Warner in IPL 2020 has been unable to find the right form losing both their games against Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders, residing at the bottom of the table with zero points. Manish Pandey has been their constant performer, though he is quite temperamental. The captain has been primarily out of form and is looking to regain his form to go full throttle in winning crucial games.
Match 14 Stadium
Dubai International Stadium, Dubai, UAE
Around this time, the weather in Dubai is very hot and humid even in the night with occasional winds flowing at mild speeds. The expected temperature would be around 33°C-37°C and humidity would be around 35%-40%. The wind speed would range around 15-18 kmph that may affect the turn of the ball.
With grass on the tracks, it would be quite favorable for the pacer as it would offer a lot of bouncers and help in swinging the slower deliveries. Batsmen will also be benefitted from the bounce. But as the condition of the pitch deteriorates and goes from dry to moist due to dew, spinners will also have an upper hand. Cricdaddy match prediction says that dew and humidity may majorly affect the match and pitch conditions.
