April 30, 2022

The 46th match of the Indian T20 League 2022 is set to see Chennai take on Hyderabad. Maharashtra Cricket Stadium in Pune will host the match on the 1st of May. This will be the second encounter between these two teams in the 2022 edition. In the first encounter, Hyderabad had a convincing eight-wicket victory. Having won five of their eight games, Hyderabad is placed fourth on the points table. Chennai, on the other hand, have won just two of their eight games.

Team Updates

Hyderabad

The orange army's five-match winning streak was broken in their last game against Gujarat. Hyderabad were not able to defend a total of 195 in the match. Their bowling attack faltered towards the end of the innings after getting a decent start. The Kane Williamson-led team will look to resolve this issue. Hyderabad's batting, on the other hand, was on point. Aiden Markram and Abhishek Sharma scored half-centuries during the match.

In the upcoming encounter against Chennai, Hyderabad might not look to make any changes to their playing XI. However, their bowling attack will have to step up and bowl more attacking lines and lengths in the game.

Players to watch out for

Umran Malik- The young speedster is on a roll, tearing through any batting order that comes his way. The team will be hoping that he maintains his excellent wicket-taking form. He has taken 15 wickets in eight matches at an economy of 7.96.

Aiden Markram- Aiden Markram has become a great strength for Hyderabad in the middle order. With his reliable batting, he has scored  246 runs in six innings at an average of 123.0 and a strike rate of 148.19.

Probable Playing XI

Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson (c), Rahul Tripathi, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shashank Singh, Washington Sundar, Marco Jansen, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umran Malik, T Natarajan

Chennai

In the latest update for the men in yellow, MS Dhoni has been appointed as the team captain. Ravindra Jadeja stepped down from the position to focus on his game. The returning captain has a huge task at hand. Chennai is on the brink of falling out of the race for the playoffs. The main reason for their downfall this season has been their bowling. They lack experience in this department, which has cost them matches.

Despite not having found their winning combination yet, the Chennai team will not look to make any changes to their playing XI. The young bowling department will have to be a lot more attacking in the upcoming game.

Players to watch out for

Ambati Rayudu- Ambati Rayudu has looked really good in the last two games. Having scored 78 runs off 39 balls in the last encounter, he looked in great touch. The men in yellow would look forward to him scoring more runs.

Ravindra Jadeja- With the burden of captaincy off Ravindra Jadeja's shoulders, he would now look to play more freely. So far, he has scored 112 runs in eight games. With the ball, he only has five wickets to his name.

Probable Playing XI

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Ambati Rayudu, Shivam Dube, Ravindra Jadeja (c), MS Dhoni (wk), Mitchell Santner, Dwayne Bravo, Dwaine Pretorius, Mukesh Choudhary, Maheesh Theekshana
