The great old men of the IPL have the daunting task of proving once again that the critics are wrong The Chennai Super Kings have been hit by strikeouts and injuries, but they will have to be content with this they have and find a rearguard against the loaded Hyderabad Sunrisers when the two teams face off in Dubai on Friday

The good news is the availability of Ambati Rayudu, their star of the opening match.The presence of Rayudu will ease the pressure on Faf du Plessis, who had to make most of the score with Shane Watson to not not hit his straps yet

The Sunrisers had a poor start to the campaign themselves, but the selection of Kane Williamson changed their fortunes in their last clash against Delhi While the opening duo of Warner and Bairstow were the main contributors, Williamson added some much needed steel to the low intermediate order and this helped the cause of SRH The duo of Rashid Khan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar also produced the wares as SRH returned to mid-totals defense to register their first victory
While Sam Curran has been a great asset to CSK so far, it remains to be seen whether Dwayne Bravo plays his first game or not after trying his luck in the net. Imran Tahir also has a case with Piyush Chawla who did not set the scene on fire
