Ranchi: All but assured of a berth in the play-offs, Chennai Super Kings would be aiming to quickly get over the shock loss against Kolkata Knight Riders when they take on an unpredictable Sunrisers Hyderabad in an Indian Premier League match on Thursday.
Chennai are currently second on the table with 16 points from eight wins and four losses in 12 matches. Hyderabad, on the other hand, are third from bottom with 10 points after managing just five wins in their 12 games.
It was a rare off day for Chennai when they succumbed to a loss against KKR last night in Kolkata. The unexpected defeat was the result of some poor batting and Chennai would look to ensure that the batting line-up is high on confidence ahead of the knock-out stage matches.
