Fantasy Cricket league has been one sport brought to India by its colonizers. Since then the most-watched sport in India has been cricket. Around the globe, people are excited to see India play, especially in the World Cup, the ODIs, or even just against Pakistan. But the most viewed matches have to be the Indian Premier League.
The Indian Premier League came about in 2007 by the Board of Control for Cricket. Here, eight different cities of India are selected to contest against each other consisting of players from all over the world. Today, we are going to look at the history of CSK vs SRH, two famous teams.
CHENNAI SUPER KINGS (CSK):
Chennai Super Kings have been a part of IPL since its inception. Since then, they have been led by the Indian Cricket Team Captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni on their home ground in Chennai. Carrying the IPL trophy 3 times over 14 years, they also carry a huge fan following. Not only for the team but more so for their players. In the first year itself, they reached the finals but were beaten by Rajasthan Royals only by 3 wickets.
SUNRISERS HYDERABAD (SRH):
Also known as the Orange Army, Sunrisers Hyderabad became a part of IPL only in 2013, after the Hyderabad-based Deccan Chargers were terminated due to financial issues with the owner. They were led to their first and only victory till now in 2016 by their Captain David Warner, under the guidance of Coach Trevor Bayliss. They did manage to come forth in their first year as an IPL team, which says quite a lot about them. Thus, leaving them with a large number of Orange fans and more fantasy cricket tips and tricks to ponder about!
History of CSK vs SRH
Due to the late entry of Sunrisers Hyderabad, matches amongst these two teams have been played since 2013. Throughout those 8 years, they have played almost 15 matches against each other, and out of those Chennai have won about 11 matches, making them quite a strong team. Hyderabad, however, has won only 4 of those matches. These statistics don’t necessarily prove that SRH is a weak team, it just means they aren’t as powerful. Their strength is displayed through what they’ve achieved in such a short period as compared to other initial teams. Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad, both have won the IPL at least once and have been runner-ups quite a few times. This just portrays that both the clubs are unstoppable. In most of the matches between these two teams, they have either won or lost by very few runs and wickets. It’s been quite a close call for both teams. Players like David Warner, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Sharma, and more in SRH are known for their wickets, runs, and all-round field personality. On the other hand, consisting of players such as MS Dhoni, Ambati Rayadu, and Shane Watson, CSK seems unbeatable. Having such amazing players in the two teams makes the matches worth the while!
The History of CSK vs SRH as we can see may not be a long one but is pretty close to what you’ve seen of CSK Vs MI. In the 14th season of the IPL, SRH isn’t very far behind CSK on the table and has the potential to beat them. I’m sure all of us are excited to see who out of Deepak Chahar or Bhuvaneshwar Kumar will win. So stay at home, stay safe and enjoy the IPL!
