With IPL 2022 heading towards its 17th game, the stage is set for the clash between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). Both are well-oiled units, featuring some of the biggest names in world cricket. However, both are guilty of underperforming, thus far, in the ongoing IPL edition, losing all their respective matches rather meekly.
Both these teams are too good to be written off, and that too at such an early stage. Keen on reviving their fortunes, both are expected to come hard at each other and gain the much-needed momentum and self-belief. Mind you, one more loss can dent their chances of recovery and making it to the playoffs, especially for the defending champions, CSK. That’s why the match is generating excitement from cricket lovers and punters alike.

CSK Vs SRH Head to Head
The two teams have been at each other on 16 occasions since 2012 when SRH made its IPL debut. With a staggering 12 wins, CSK has dominated the Hyderabad-based franchise. Will CSK continue the dominance or will SRH spring up a surprise? Only time will tell.
Chennai Super Kings Preview
For the first time, CSK is being led by someone other than MS Dhoni. The new skipper, Ravindra Jadeja, is finding it hard to fill in the shoes of Dhoni and deal with the expectations of the fans. Scoring 131/5, his team failed to put up a decent total on the board against KKR and defend an imposing total of 210 against LSG. In an outing against PBKS, CSK were all out for a paltry 126.
The batting has struggled, especially the top order. Ruturaj Gaikwad is, undeniably, a serious talent but hasn’t clicked as yet. He has to deliver if CSK has to enjoy an elusive win against SRH. His opening partner, Robin Uthappa had a decent knock against LSG but needs to show consistency. CSK are likely to include Devon Conway to strengthen their middle order.
The team has had issues in the bowling department as well with Jadeja and Moeen Ali not living up to their reputation. The pacer, Mukesh Choudhary is young and inexperienced to deliver for his team. It all boils down to Chris Jordan and Dwayne Bravo taking wickets and checking runs. The entire bowling unit has to put its act together. Or else, their chances are lean.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Preview
SRH is going through a lean phase, losing both the games they have featured in, thus far. Skipper Kane Williamson is not at his fluent best, which is why his team has failed to put up and chase down imposing totals. With the youngster, Abhishek Sharma, he has to provide a solid start to allow Nicholas Pooran, Rahul Tripathi, and Glenn Phillips in the middle order to flourish. Washington Sundar and Abdul Samad also need to contribute with the bat.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is a special bowler, adept at maintaining a tight line and length and moving the ball both ways. He has to bowl his heart out to remove CSK’s top order cheaply. Bhuvneshwar also needs support from his new-ball partner Shephard. The responsibility to stem the flow of runs and take wickets in the middle overs rests with Natarajan who has to maintain good line and length. Sundar also has to step up his game to make a difference.

Now that the basics are out of the way, it’s time to explore the CSK vs SRH: Match 17th Betting Tips & Predictions. But before that, let’s discuss the key things to factor in.

Conventionally, DY Patil Sports Academy favors batting for the most part. It offers a true bounce, allowing batsmen to score freely. As the game progresses, the spinners will get help.
The team winning the toss is likely to field first. Teams batting second have a better success rate at the ground. So, the chasing team could be your best bet.
Expect a high-scoring game. The team batting first might not feel secure with a total of 190.
CSK vs SRH: Betting Tips & Predictions
The following strategies can help you ace the game and earn big.
- Match Winner:
If past record is something to go by, CSK has an edge. Though the way they have played so far doesn’t inspire confidence, it is too good a team to be brushed off. It had come from nowhere to win the title previously. SRH is struggling but can pose a strong comeback too. So, it’s 55 CSK and 45 SRH. As SRH is an underdog, betting on it can help rake it if it wins.
- Top Batsmen:
There are too many contenders for this market, Kane Williamson for one. He’s a prolific top-order batsman who can bat through the innings and score big. Well past his prime, Uthappa can be considered. Pooran, Tripathi, and Rituraj can be a safe bet if you prefer youngsters.
- Top Bowlers:
Dwayne Bravo is a proven performer and the top contender for the market. He can effectively bowl at the death where wickets are available. However, Bhuvneshwar Kumar can be a better choice, as he can move the ball at will at a lively pace. The spinners will have a role to play on the dry, cracking surface of the DY Patil Sports Academy. Go for Ravindra Jadeja.
