CSK vs SRH: Southern Derby

After a close loss against Rajasthan, CSK heads back home and face Hyderabad within 48 hours of their loss. Meanwhile SRH have made a statement after chasing 180 plus on a tough batting pitch in Delhi with easy. Both the teams look really good and geared-up for this clash. Also with very little time in between matches it will be really interesting to see which team gets better of other in a hot day game. This is a must win game for CSK if they want to remain in Top-2 in the Points Table and to qualify with ease.

Pitch: The match is slated to be played at MCA, Pune and the surface is expected to be bit slower and spin friendly, so expect a really interesting spin face-off.
