IPL 2023 Match 29 CSK vs SRH | Fantasy Tips, Prediction & Preview
Chennai Super Kings will play against Sunrisers Hyderabad in match 29 of IPL 2023 on Friday. CSK head into the contest on the back of a convincing victory against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad, come into the contest on the back of a disappointing loss against Mumbai Indians. The Orange Army has never won a match against Chennai at Chepauk. They have been inconsistent in this season and are in the bottom half of the points table.
The Yellow Army have strong top and middle-order batting with players who are capable of scoring runs at a high pace. CSK won 3 of the 5 matches they have played so far and are in the top-4 position. Devon Conway appears to be in good touch and has scored half-centuries in the last 2 matches. Also their young pacers Matheesha Pathirana and Tushar Deshpande impressed with their ability to bowl in the death overs. However, the CSK management wouldn't be too pleased with the fielding efforts of their players.
The Orange Army have some good seamers, but they lack quality spinners except for Mayank Markande, which can cause problem for them. SRH's biggest concern is the lack of consistency of their top-order batters. Harry Brook, who is one of the most exciting player of this season, has also lacked consistency. He scored the first century of IPL 2023 but hasn't been able to get going. Spinner Mayank Markande has been quite impressive in this season and need to continue his good performance against CSK.
CSK will be looking to continue their winning momentum and to solidify their place in the top half of the points table, whereas SRH will be hoping to bounce back from the defeat with a victory against the Super Kings. It won't be easy for the Sunrisers as they have poor history against CSK in Chennai. They will be depending heavily on its pacers to perform well.

Weather Conditions and pitch
CSK team is currently struggling with the injuries of their key players. Ben Stokes had injured his toe and missed the last three matches for Chennai. But, now he is fit and will be available for selection. He may return in the match against SRH. His return is important as CSK needs to win the upcoming matches.
Whereas, CSK Skipper MS Dhoni is also struggling with knee injury. The good news is that despite the injury, he is available and managing the injury well. But if the situation get worst, then Devon Conway will be the wicket-keeper in his absence while Dhoni can be seen as an impact player if needed. However, with the tournament yet to reach the halfway mark, Dhoni might also take break to let the injury heal.

CSK vs SRH fantasy team
Captain and Vice-captain picks
Chennai Super Kings have a stronger team compared to the SRH in all departments. Playing under home conditions will give Chennai an added advantage. CSK have always dominated the Sunrisers since 2012 and have been playing amazing cricket this year. SRH is yet to achieve consistency when it comes to results. They lack the collective efforts. They need to perform exceptionally well to beat CSK at their home ground which is not at all easy. Looking to all these factors it is clear that CSK have more chances of winning in this match.
