IPL 2022: CSK vs SRH Dream11 Team Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Captain & Vice-Captain, Playing XI, Pitch report, and other updates

Both sides will be desperate to register their maiden victory of IPL15.


The 15th edition of IPL has been full of shocks and surprises. The two new teams GT and LSG have outperformed the OG 8 franchises while dark horses like RR, RCB, and PBKS have emerged as formidable contenders for the title. However, the so-called consistent performers of the league, MI, CSK, and SRH have failed to find their rhythm so far. In the 17th match of IPL15, reigning champions CSK will lock horns with SRH in the first clash of Saturday’s doubleheader. Both CSK and SRH are still winless. Ravindra Jadeja-led Super Kings lost 3 matches in a row while SRH are down with back-to-back 2 defeats in 2 matches. Team management of both the franchises understand the dynamics of IPL and will be under immense pressure as they might be out of the playoffs race much earlier.

Batters might find it tricky to bat on this track. With grass covering on the pitch assisting pacers upfront, spinners will come into the game as it proceeds. The par score is around 160. Since it is a day game, batting first is preferable on winning the toss.

Weather Forecast

Mostly clear skies with no chances of rain are expected. The mean temperature will be around 33°C and humidity will be close to 62%.

CSK vs SRH: Head to Head

CSK clearly have the edge over SRH when come to head-to-head stats. In IPL, SRH have squared off against CSK on 17 occasions and thumped the Super Kings only in 4 games. CSK hammered Sunrisers in 13 games and the most historic clash between the two was back in 2018 when the southern rivals faced off in the finals. Watson’s staggering ton helped CSK cruise to victory and lift their 3rd title. In IPL 2021, CSK drubbed SRH twice in the league stage.

CSK vs SRH Dream 11 Top Picks

Bhuvneshwar Kumar

The seasoned campaigner has not been at his best in the last 2 years but has shown signs of revival in IPL 2022. His clinical economy of around 7 forces the batters to opt for a risky shot which in turn creates opportunities for wickets. Williamson’s trump card in the powerplay, the 32-year old seamer will be a threat to CSK’s experienced top order.

Washington Sundar

The Tamil Nadu all-rounder’s blistering form has been the biggest positive for SRH in this season’s so far listless run. A destructive 40 off 14 deliveries against RR followed by a remarkable spell of 2-28 in 4 overs against LSG – Sundar can turn the tide in a flash. The team will expect that he transform his performances into matchwinning ones taking his side out of misery. Time will tell, if Sundar steps up as Hyderabad’s crisis man in upcoming games.

Ambati Rayudu

One of India’s most underrated cricketers, Rayudu has displayed his caliber as a gamechanger time and again in IPL. He represents Hyderabad in domestic cricket, and his records against SRH in IPL are impeccable as well. His maiden century came against SRH back in 2018 in Pune. CSK’s batting unit flopped in the last match after failing to score brisk runs in the middle overs, if a fluent stroke maker like Rayudu finds form, he can be the solution to the puzzle.

Match Prediction: Who Will Win?

If CSK banks on experience, SRH backs youngsters. Both teams were off to a disastrous start and the only way they can stay afloat in the hunt for the title is to win matches. Though the league might only be in its 2nd week, with 10 teams now in the race, the dynamics for qualification will be tougher than what it was in the past. The defending champions are favorites to win this high octane match but Kane Williamson and his troops can not be taken lightly as well.
