The previous game at the venue was a relatively low-scoring one, with the pitch being on the slower side. While there wasn't much swing on offer for the pacers, the spinners enjoyed some turn and a hint of extra bounce off the surface. The batters will look to bide their time in the middle before going big, with wickets in hand being key. Both teams will look to chase upon winning the toss, with 160-170 being a good total on this ground.
Today’s CSK vs SRH Dream11 match top picks
Nicholas Pooran: Although Nicholas Pooran hasn't been in the best of form, he has been given the license to play his natural game in the middle overs. Pooran is a good player of both pace and spin and with Dhoni batting lower down the order, the Windies star should be one to watch out for in this game.
Ruturaj Gaikwad: Ruturaj Gaikwad has failed to get going in IPL 2022, unable to score many runs at the top of the order. However, Gaikwad remains CSK's best bet with the bat, given his knack for scoring big runs. With the IPL 2021 Orange Cap winner due for a big score, he is a good addition to your CSK vs SRH Dream11 fantasy team.
Moeen Ali: Moeen Ali has shown flashes of brilliance with the bat, attacking the spinners in the middle overs. While Moeen has been used sparingly on the bowling front, the Englishman's explosiveness in the top order should serve him well. While Ravindra Jadeja is a fine option himself, Moeen's batting prowess should give him the nod.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar: Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been steady so far in IPL 2022, holding his own with the new ball and in the death overs. His experience and ability to nail the yorker makes him a viable option for this game. Given his recent form as well, he is a must-have in your CSK vs SRH Dream11 fantasy team.
