IPL 2021, CSK vs SRH Team Playing 11 for Today Match: The second leg of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL2021) is kickstarting from Wednesday when a well-oiled Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to take on inconsistent Sunrisers Hyderabad in Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium.

CSK vs SRH Live Scorecard, Live Updates

With four straight wins, MS Dhoni’s CSK are on a roll and hoping to continue the same winning streak. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been the driving force behind CSK’s impressive run so far. His blistering assault on Harshal Patel in the final over shut out RCB on Sunday. He has been among the wickets with his accurate left-arm spin apart from effecting stunning run-outs. On the other hand, Sunrisers rely heavily on their foreign recruits, led by skipper David Warner, opener Jonny Bairstow, Kiwi great Kane Williamson and Rashid Khan, which is a cause for concern. Their biggest weakness is a fragile batting order and over-reliance on the top order.

Playing XI:

CSK: Ruturaj Gaikwad, Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni(w/c), Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, Shardul Thakur, Lungi Ngidi, Deepak Chahar

SRH: David Warner(c), Jonny Bairstow(w), Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, Jagadeesha Suchith, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed, Siddarth Kaul

Moeen Ali's fitness will be a cause of concern for CSK, who are set to continue with their winning combination otherwise. For SRH, there are plenty of questions, with their middle order continuing to disappear in crunch situations. Will Manish Pandey make his way back? Could Kedar Jadhav have a rennnaisance?

IPL 2021 continues

“I think the IPL should carry on… The joy it will be bringing billions in these awful times every evening is important .. but I do find it tough to think back how England & Aussie pulled out of games in SA, yet both countries players are allowed to play in India," is Vaughan's take on the IPL. 

Had there not been a pandemic raging, the big question today would have been if Jadeja can repeat his heroics from last day. But sadly, such questions, though still posed, hardly hold such significance in this backdrop. Strange...strange times.

Travelling back home is a small issue compared to situation outside IPL bubble: Ricky Ponting

Australian players might be a bit apprehensive following the suspension of flights from India but Delhi Capitals’ head coach Ricky Ponting said it’s a “small issue” when compared to the chaos triggered by the second wave of COVID-19 infections here. Australia on Tuesday suspended all direct passenger flights from India until May 15 due to the “very significant” spike in COVID-19 cases in India. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison also made it clear that cricketers competing in the IPL will have to make their “own arrangements” to return home. [More]

Rashid Khan- A threat for CSK?

The CSK batters are aware of the Rashid Khan threat but the rest of the SRH attack doesn’t inspire much confidence. Hyderabad rely heavily on their foreign recruits, led by skipper David Warner, opener Jonny Bairstow, Kiwi great Kane Williamson and Rashid, which is a cause for concern.
