Chennai vs Hyderabad IPL 2021: 3 Reasons Why Hyderabad Lost
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) defeated Sunrises Hyderabad (SRH) by seven wickets at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in match 23 of IPL 2021. Here are some reasons of what went wrong for the Sun Rise
Sun Risers Hyderabad have been getting tough competition by the other teams in the current season of the IPL. They lost 5 out of their 6 matches so far. In their last match against the Chennai Super Kings, they lost the match by 7 wickets. Although Chennai Super Kings gave a tough competition to Sun Risers Hyderabad, here are some of the reasons why the David Warner-led team lost the match.
- David Warner Struggled to Change Gears
- Chennai Super King Openers Dominated Sun Risers Hyderabad Bowlers: CSK batsmen Faf Du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad Scored Half-Centuries Each in a 129-run opening partnership.
- SRH player Rashid Khan lacked support: While the Afghanisthan spinner took three wickets during the match, other bowlers went wicket-less.
Currently, SRH is at the bottom of the point table. During the toss of the match, David Warner won the toss and decided to bat and his decision surprised the captain of CSK, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. With this match, CSK opener batsman Faf Duplesi has become the highest run-scorer in the IPL and is known to cross Shikhar Dhawan’s record.
Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings who had a bad experience in the last season, won the hearts of their fans this season. They are currently at the top of the IPL 2021 scoreboard with five wins from six matches. Last season, the team performed poorly and ended up at the end of the point board. When asked, Mahendra Singh Dhoni mentioned that the result of longer quarantine, change in venue and the lack of competitive cricket was what took over the players determination to win. However, this year, it seems the team is back with a bang and has the spirit to win the trophy of 2021. Chennai Super Kings will now compete with Mumbai Indians on May 1, 2021, Saturday.
