Deepak Chahar bowled brilliantly in Chennai's match against RCB. At an Economy Rate of 7.92, this Right-arm medium pace bowler has taken 6 wickets in 7 matches
Captain and Vice-Captain
Johnny Bairstow is without a doubt Hyderabad's most consistent batsman. He has scored 257 runs at an average of 36.97 in 7 matches. SRH can trust him to provide the start they need to win games. Talking about consistency, Faf du Plessis does the job for Chennai Super Kings. So far, he has scored 307 runs at an average of 61.40 and strike-rate of 147.59
Coming in to bat at the lower order, Kane Williamson provides the 'boost' SRH need towards the end of the game. If the opening pair fail to do their job, Kane Williamson can very well shoulder the responsibility of taking SRH towards a huge total.
Sam Curran disappointed with the ball and the bat in Chennai's last game against RCB. He conceded 48 runs and was dismissed for a duck.
Rashid Khan and T Natarajan are two economical, wicket-taking bowlers at Hyderabad's disposal. Their bowling can leave any batsman struggling to score. Deepak Chahar has so far been good with the ball for CSK.
