IPL final 2018 CSK Vs SRH Who Will Win

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)

The orange army has come a long way. A slow start to the season turned into a dominating one as SRH kept on winning games. The team progressed rapidly under the excellent captaincy of Kane Williamson and poses a serious threat to CSK for the IPL 2018 title. An organized batting lineup led by Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson has withheld pressure from the opposition. SRH need Dhawan to be fully back in form to start off their innings well.

Betting Line-up

Skipper Williamson, who is the orange cap holder, will be looking to add to his tally of 688 runs. The middle order has been shaky in the batting line up. The likes of Shakib Al Hasan and Yusuf Pathan will need to give it their all in the IPL final match to help the top order batsmen. Carlos Brathwaite’s batting prowess need to the introduction as the big man has the ability to clear the grounds easily. The batting will need to fare better than in the first qualifier to overcome the same CSK bowling.

The best bowling unit of IPL 2018 led by the excellent Rashid Khan will need to restrict the mighty batting of CSK. Easily the best spin bowler of IPL 11, Rashid Khan is a sight for the eyes. The Afghan spinner’s heroics with the bat, ball and fielding the second qualifier against KKR helped SRH win the match.

Betting Line-up

The men in yellow have a strong batting line up capable of scoring and chasing 200+ scores. Shane Watson will be looking to score big after a dismal outing in the last match. The main scoring responsibility has been taken up by Ambati Rayudu who will surely look to finish his season strong. Dhoni has proved dependable as always with his knocks.
