Sunrisers Hyderabad managed to arrest a four-match losing streak to enter IPL 2018 final by defeating Kolkata Knight Riders in Eden Gardens on Friday. But now Hyderabad have Chennai Super Kings (CSK) standing between them and glory on Sunday in the Wankhede Stadium.
This can be a fight that can give some edge of the seat moments, considering the teams are almost equally matched up.
In this edition of IPL, CSK and SRH have met each other three times and Super Kings hold 3-0 record.
After a season full of twists and turns we finally reach the grand final which will feature the two best teams in the competition. After being suspended in 2016 and 2017, Chennai Super Kings have been on the front foot in the competition. Foreign players Shane Watson, Lungi Ngidi and Dwayne Bravo are important pieces of the puzzle, and with the locals, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni and Ambati Rayudu having fantastic season, this has resulted in Chennai being a force to be reckoned with.
Sunrisers Hyderabad recovered well from the loss of David Warner to record a string of impressive victories however they had lost in four matches before there key win against KKR. The last victory match promises a lot and ensures a good performance for all the supporters.
Chennai batting order runs deep and all players have potential to cause some serious damage while SRH have continued to reply on Rashid Khan and Kane Williamson to pull them through tough situations.
