Time is fast running out for the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings, a team which desperately needs its batting to click when it takes on Sunrisers Hyderabad here on Tuesday in a battle to keep its IPL hopes alive.

16:21 (IST)

SRH and CSK have slumped down in the points table. CSK for the first time find themselves in a down barrel situation with five losses out of the seven games played so far.

16:00 (IST)

Spinners tend to gain a lot in the middle and death overdue to the dew factor, as the pitch has got something to offer for everyone. Both CSK and SRH have some good spinners in their ranks.

15:37 (IST)

With just two teams chasing to get over the line, while the other two games ended in a tie. The pitch has been favourable to the team batting first as they won four out of the last five matches played here. 

15:02 (IST)

In the 12 matches played at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium so far - where Sunrisers Hyderabad will be taking on the Chennai Super Kings - the run chase has been quite challenging. 

14:40 (IST)

The forecast shows 0 percent of precipitation, so the probability of showers or thunderstorms is unlikely. Players might have to deal with wind gusts reaching around 32 kmph. The humidity is likely going to be lower than 50 per cent.

14:26 (IST)

The city will have clear skies with very warm temperatures likely to reach a maximum of 38 degree Celsius, while the minimum dip in temperature is expected to be approximately 25 degrees. 

13:40 (IST)

The 29th match of the IPL 2020 will be played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai on Tuesday (October 13, 2020) at 7:30pm IST.

13:23 (IST)

"The icing on the cake with cherry on top was the flick he played of Rabada’s bowling for a six. My jaw dropped after watching that six. I said that this player should play for India. "I am saying that before the end of 2020, he will be a part of the Indian team and I feel he will also play matches for the Indian team. This is a voice that is coming from my heart for this player and hopefully, that happens." The ability of the Mumbai batsman has never been in doubt but he has taken his consistency up several notches during the past two IPL seasons.

13:03 (IST)

"I feel Suryakumar Yadav was the game-changer in the match between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals. The manner in which he is batting, whether you see his shots over the covers or his flicks or his cut shots," Chopra said in a video uploaded on his official YouTube channel.

12:56 (IST)

Former India opener Aakash Chopra believes Mumbai Indians batsman Suryakumar Yadav will be a part of the Indian cricket team before the end of 2020. Suryakumar has been in fine form in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 thus far, having scored 233 runs in 7 matches at an average of 38.83 and a strike rate of 155.33.

12:46 (IST)

When a question regarding IPL playoffs was asked, Stephen said that the playoff dream is getting further away if the team keeps playing the way it is doing right now. Saying that the team is changing the style of their game, the coach added, “We are certainly scrapping...trying to find a way, it is a bit foreign and the results are showing.” Performing better than only Kings XI Punjab on the IPL 2020 points table, CSK has generally been at the top of the points table, often second in position.

12:33 (IST)

CSK is led by 39-year-old Mahendra Singh Dhoni and most players of the team are over 30 years old. The oldest player of the team is South African cricketer Imran Tahir who is 41 years old. Absence of the team’s star player Suresh Raina has also been difficult for the CSK. Raina came back to India in early September to be with his close relatives who faced an attack in Punjab’s Pathankot.

12:16 (IST)

Former batsman and coach of CSK Stephen Fleming has found the root cause of the problem. Speaking at the post-match conference, after CSK lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Fleming said that he would love to see more intent while answering a question about what the talks are in the team about the batting order of CSK. When asked if as a coach, this is the most difficult challenge for him, the 47-year-old said that there are two facts one needs to look at — first being that CSK is an ageing team and secondly the spinners are playing a small role, but not a substantial one.

12:07 (IST)

The disappointment for the fans of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) is immense this season. The team which has never had this dull a season in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is ranked seventh currently in the points table, with five losses and only two wins.

11:58 (IST)

Chennai Super Kings Possible Playing XI: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Curran, MS Dhoni (WK), Dwayne Bravo, Deepak Chahar, Piyush Chawla, Kedar Jadhav

11:58 (IST)

Sunrisers Hyderabad Possible Playing XI: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow (WK), Manish Pandey, Kane Williamson, Abhishek Sharma, Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, Siddarth Kaul, T Natarajan

11:38 (IST)

SRH have done slightly better with 3 wins in seven matches, but they would certainly have liked to be in a better position. With CSK in tatters, they have a chance here to make some points. The top-order batsmen – David Warner (275 runs), Jonny Bairstow (257 runs) and Manish Pandey (202 runs) have performed well with the bat. In the bowling department, Rashid Khan is the star with 10 wickets so far.

11:37 (IST)

This has been the story of CSK all through the season. They perform well to put themselves in a decent position but fall short of victory. As a result, they are positioned seventh, only ahead of Kings XI Punjab in the points tally. Faf du Plessis is the one batsman that stands out from the others, having scored a total of 302 runs in the tournament. The next in line, by a huge margin, is Shane Watson (199 runs). Sam Curran and Shardul Thakur have picked eight and seven wickets respectively.

11:37 (IST)

This is going to be their second encounter in the tournament, with the first going SRH’s way. In that match, SRH batted first and put up a total of 164, owing to the superb half-century knock of Priyam Garg (51 runs off 26 balls). In response, CSK’s top order could not do much and it was captain MS Dhoni himself along with Jadeja, who carried the team. But they fell 7 runs short despite Dhoni being on the crease till the end.

11:20 (IST)

The teenager “confessed” to have posted the threatening message on the Instagram account after the IPL 2020 match between KKR and CSK cricket teams, police said. Ranchi police had shared information regarding the boy with Kutch (West) police and asked them to confirm if he was the one who had posted the threat message, Singh said.

11:09 (IST)

Earlier A 16-year-old boy was nabbed on Sunday from Mundra in Gujarat for allegedly issuing threats against cricketer MS Dhoni’s minor daughter, police said. “The class 12 student from Namna Kapaya village was detained for questioning in connection with a disgusting threat message that was posted on the Instagram account of Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Dhoni a few days back,” Kutch (West) superintendent of police Saurabh Singh told reporters.

10:51 (IST)

Chennai Super Kings are not having the best of the times in this year's Indian Premier League. And  as a result, skipper MS Dhoni has been trolled brutally on social media. Someone even posted a rape threat to his five-year-old daughter Ziva. While Dhoni fans have been distraught from the moment they heard this news, former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi has come out in 'Mahi's support. “I don’t know what sort of threats were directed at MS Dhoni & his family but it’s not right & shouldn’t happen. Dhoni’s the person who has taken Indian cricket to new heights. He’s taken junior & senior players along this journey & doesn’t deserve such treatment,” Afridi was quoted as saying by Pakistani journalist Saj Sadiq on Twitter.

CSK vs SRH IPL 2020 Match Day Live Updates: CSK Look for Revival; SRH Consistency

CSK vs SRH IPL 2020 Match Day Live Updates: Time is fast running out for the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings, a team which desperately needs its batting to click when it takes on Sunrisers Hyderabad here on Tuesday in a battle to keep its IPL hopes alive.

PREVIEW: Three-time champions Chennai Super kings (CSK) now have no choice but to deliver to keep their play-off hopes alive when they face SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in a return fixture of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Tuesday. Despite being termed as one of the most successful teams in the history of the cash-rich league, the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led team has been completely off-colour so far, suffering five defeats in seven games. CSK have never missed the play-offs in the seasons they have played -- barring the the 2016 and 2017 seasons when the Supreme Court banned them following the 2013 IPL betting scandal. But looking at the present circumstances, the Yellow Brigade's journey ahead seems difficult.

The main concern for the CSK side is the lacklustre form of their batsmen, especially the ones in the middle-order. While openers Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis look good with the bat, the others have let the side down, including Dhoni. Neither Ambati Rayudu nor Kedhar Jadhav have made any impact while N Jagadeesan, who had replaced the latter, had impressed everyone with his gritty knock. Further, Dhoni, who is undoubtedly the best finisher the game has ever seen in the shorter format, has struggled in finishing games this time, so have all-rounders Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo. The bowling department, however, looks settled as they have successfully restricted their opponents to modest totals. The pace trio comprising Sam Curran, Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur are executing their plans well while Jadeja and Karn Sharma will once again look after the spin attack. CSK batters will have to tighten their belts for Tuesday's contest as the SRH bowling attack has been quite effective so far.

SRH's T Natarajan and Khaleel Ahmed have been doing well despite the absence of experienced pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Spinner Rashid Khan has led the bowling attack with aplomb, giving away runs at a miserly rate. Hyderabad skipper David Warner and opener Jonny Bairstow have been among the runs and even Manish Pandey showed signs of getting back his touch with a scintillating 54 against Rajasthan Royals in their last game. Moreover, they have the services of Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson in the middle-order but the side misses a genuine power-hitter in their lower middle-order. They have Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma in their lower middle-order but lack of experience is a cause of concern for the SRH think-tank.
