e on Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium. This will be CSK's first game of the season in Delhi after playing five games at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.Chennai kickstarted their campaign with a defeat against the Delhi Capitals. However, MS Dhoni and his men have won 4 matches on the trot since that defeat and are one of the most in-form teams in the tournament right now.
CSK are aware that their Mumbai leg is now over and will want to restrategise their team selection based on the demands of the pitch at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi.
The Super Kings social media team recently shared a clip where Ruturaj Gaikwad stressed on the importance of adapting to the conditions as quickly as possible, adding that the team is confident of continuing their winning run.
With both teams set to play their first game in Delhi, CSK opener Ruturaj Gaikwad said:
"Team has been very confident. Its just how you adapt to the conditions very quickly. Good teams what they do is they assess the conditions and the pitch."
"Quickly adapt themselves according to the situation. We will be hoping that we assess and react to the condition little bit quickly and be one step ahead of the opposition."
CSK are coming into this game on the back of a confidence-boosting win over table-toppers RCB. Ravindra Jadeja stole the show with his brilliant all-round performance. The Chennai-based outfit are certainly one of the favorites to qualify for the playoffs this season.

CSK vs SRH head to head record
