Hyderabad vs Chennai: The Southern Rivals

Even as Mumbai have dominated the Indian T20 League, Chennai and Hyderabad have kept challenging their supremacy. However, after Chennai’s nightmare season in 2020, it’s now Hyderabad’s turn to suffer. Having made the play-offs every season since winning the trophy in 2016, they prop up the table with just 1 win from 7 games.

Inspired by the batting of David Warner and the guileful bowling of Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hyderabad have finished outside the play-off places just twice in their eight seasons in the league. However, Chennai, second in the table with 5 wins, have a great opportunity to push one of their rivals through the exit door.

Josh Hazlewood’s bowling strengthens Chennai’s bowling options, though they need more runs from the veteran Indian duo of MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina to maintain the momentum from the first leg.

Hyderabad Team vs Chennai Team: Head-to-Head Record

Suffering 4 losses in their first 4 games* set the tone for Hyderabad’s struggles against Chennai. In 2018, they lost to them 4 times, including in the Indian T20 League final.

Matches: 15

*This streak included Chennai winning their only Champions League T20 meeting in 2013.

Hyderabad Team vs Chennai Team: Head-to-Head History

The return to fitness of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and T Natarajan will certainly boost Hyderabad’s bowling, though the talisman is now undoubtedly Rashid Khan. They remain heavily reliant on David Warner, Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson for runs, and will need more quick-fire innings from Indian batsmen like Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav to save their season:

    • Kane Williamson (C)
    • David Warner
    • Rashid Khan
    • Bhuvneshwar Kumar
    • Manish Pandey
    • Jason Holder

Imran Tahir is hurting and has a point to prove after South Africa’s selectors denied him a last chance at World Cup glory. But with Ravindra Jadeja and Moeen Ali sharing the spin load so far, it remains to be seen if Tahir will get his chances. Faf du Plessis, who scored 320 runs in the first leg, is another player ignored by his national selectors:

    • MS Dhoni (C)
    • Faf du Plessis
    • Ravindra Jadeja
    • Dwayne Bravo
    • Moeen Ali
    • Josh Hazlewood
