So, the IPL 2018 final is here. The two months long cricket carnival is about to get its new winner. With a plenty of nerve-wracking clashes, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings will battle it out to be the title winner of Vivo IPL 2018.
Sunrisers Hyderabad perfectly bounced back in the second qualifier against Knight Riders, courtesy player of the match Rashid Khan, and clinched a place against Chennai Super Kings who went directly to the finals in a thriller against the former.
It was all the heroics of Rashid Khan that made the difference and provided an upper hand to Sunrisers at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. However, the final against CSK won’t be less than any challenge. Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad have locked horns three times this season and each time CSK has turned out to be the winner.
So, let’s move forwards to SRH vs CSK team news and SRH vs CSK dream11 prediction.
Well, it’s the final game and none of the teams would like to tinker their winning combination. When SRH went three changes against KKR in Qualifier 2, everybody waited to see whether it’s a good move or not. However, in the end, it was SRH who turned out to be the winner. Now, they will not like to tinker the playing 11 unless there are any forced changes.
Chennai Super Kings in the Qualifier 1 brought Faf du Plessis in place of Sam Billings which proved out to be the match-winning pick. He is likely to retain his place. Also, in the top order Watson, Raina and A Rayudu are a sure shot despite being a flop show in the previous game. Shardul Thakur who was a bit expensive with the ball has taken 12 wickets so far and after his contribution with the bat in the last game, he won’t be dropped.
Moreover, both the teams are expected to stick to the same playing 11.

For Hyderabad, with W Saha, D Hooda, and Y Pathan being the inconsistent performers, S Dhawan and Kane Williamson will be the most responsible for putting runs on the scoreboard. They will be the key batters for SRH. Shakib Al Hasan, D Hooda and C Brathwaite at the end can play handy innings like R Khan in the last game.
Bowling being the strength of SRH, R Khan, B Kumar and Sid Kaul will be crucial. They are the wicket-taking bowlers with Shakib Al Hasan and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar building up the pressure with their tight bowling.
In Chennai, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, and Shane Watson will be the most responsible batters to provide a good start. Ambati Rayudu and skipper Dhoni coming in the middle order will be the one responsible for a perfect finish. A Rayudu is the leading run scorer for CSK.
In bowling, D Chahar, Shardul Thakur, and L Ngidi will be the key. Chahar and Ngidi will be responsible for providing early breakthroughs with S Thakur and H Singh joining in later.
Both the teams have faced each other for three times in this season. and each of the time Chennai Super Kings has turned out to be the winner. It will be interesting to watch whether Sunrisers can turn the result this time or Chennai will once again prove out to be invincible against the former and crowned as the title winner. While CSK is full of big hitters and lacks in sheer pace attack, SRH has the strongest bowling line up with out of form big hitters. So, let’s wait and watch.
