Since IPL 2018 too, CSK has won five out of six matches against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
However, when the two teams locked horn with each other in IPL 2020
on October 2, SRH won the nail-biter as Dhoni failed to take his team home.
But this year's IPL is totally different, considering how CSK is languishing at the bottom, with a string of losses. MS Dhoni
has a tough task ahead and it gets even tougher with each passing match.
David Warner's SRH has still found some rhytm, however, it suffered a loss against Rajasthan Royals in their previous clash, despite having a hold on the match.
As the two clash, MS Dhoni
would look to clinch a win, a much-needed one. Besides, changes look unlikely in both SRH and CSK playing 11.
IPL 2020, Match 29: SRH vs CSK Pitch report
Dubai pitch is likely to help pacers in the initial stage and spinners will hold the key in the middle overs. Dew factor will play a key role, so both skippers would look to chase.
