IPL 2018 Qualifier 1: CSK vs SRH Match Predictions
The first IPL qualifier takes place on Tuesday and will feature the top two teams from the regular season, the Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Chennai Super Kings. The winner gets an automatic pass through to the final played on Sunday May 27, while the loser gets one more chance to make it when they play in eliminator 2 on Friday. These two were top of the table for much of this season, and both will have high hopes when it comes to winning the IPL overall, so expect a great game between two of the best T20 cricket teams in the world. Who will win 22nd May CSK vs SRH prediction is placed below.
The Sunrisers won the league despite losing their last three games although in the end it was only a better run rate that got them over the line. They were chased down hard by the Chennai Super Kings, but MS Dhoni and his players just failed to catch the long-time leaders. After losing their last three games it will be interesting to see what frame of mind the Sunrisers are in going into this game, and they may struggle. They won’t be feeling as confident of winning the title, and even if they have been going easy for the past three games, it is not the best preparation for such a big game as the one we have on Tuesday. They have the ability to win this trophy no doubt, but they are taking a risk going into this game on the back of three defeats.
The Chennai Super Kings are in much better form having won two of their last three games and that should serve them well. They were unlucky to not catch the Sunrisers, but will settle for second knowing that it gives them an opportunity to play in this game and reach the final while the other teams all scrap it out to play them. CSK vs SRH match prediction 22nd May 2018 is placed below.
CSK vs SRH IPL 2018 Prediction
There is no doubt that this is going to be a great game between two exceptional teams. They finished the regular season with an identical record of nine wins and five defeats, with only the smallest of run rates separating them in the standings. With so little to choose between them this game could come down to recent form and how good the players feel about themselves, something that gives the Chennai Super Kings an edge. They come here in better form, have won recently and they can be the team that makes it into the final on Sunday.
