Need to improve batting
Regarding today’s match, the former Ranji player and coach of the Chhattisgarh Under-23 Men’s Cricket team says that Chennai will have to improve their batting to win against Hyderabad in the eighth match. Especially in the middle order. Middle-order batsmen captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Sam Kurain, Jagdishan Narayan, Ravindra Jadeja are not contributing much in the matches so far. These four batsmen are unable to score more than 20-30 runs. Rayudu had batted well in the last match, but his support was not supported by other batsmen.
In a way, Chennai’s entire batting has become dependent on opener Shane Watson and Fof du Plessis. Chennai is unable to score big due to both of them not running and has to face defeat. As in the previous match. However, when it comes to Chennai bowling, it is relatively fine. Deepak Chahar and Ravindra Jadeja bowled well in the last match. Shardul Thakur and Sam Kurain were also successful in taking wickets. Chennai needs to change its planning to win the match.
Big responsibility on Warner and Bairstow
Now let’s talk about Hyderabad. Hyderabad openers David Warner and Johnny Bairstow will hold a big responsibility against Chennai. At the same time, Kane Williamson will have to come up in the batting order and make runs. In the middle order, Manish Pandey and Priyam Garg will have to handle the batting. If that happens, Hyderabad can score up to 180 runs, which will increase their chances of winning.
Chances of losing and winning 50:50
At the same time, in bowling, Rashid Khan and Khalil Ahmed will have the responsibility to stop Chennai. Both bowled quite well in the previous match. T. Natarajan and Vijay Shankar will have the responsibility to accompany them. In a way, no player is doing very well in both teams. In such a situation, both teams can be said to be equal and the probability of losing and winning in the match is 50-50 percent.
