Team News for Sunrisers Hyderabad
Sunrisers finally found a win against the Rajasthan Royals. With their second win, they have kept their playoff hopes alive mathematically. However, it is still a distant hope.
The recent social media posts from David Warner signalled that he wouldn't be wearing the orange jersey in the near future. That means Jason Roy will continue opening the innings with Wriddhiman Saha. Roy's 60 off 42 against Rajasthan gave Sunrisers their first victory after five consecutive losses. Jagadeesha Suchith is likely to replace Abdul Samad in the middle-order. The Sunrisers' management has mentioned that they will keep promoting young talent. With nothing to lose from hereon, the Sunrisers can try out the players benched in the initial half of IPL 2021.

Team News for Chennai Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings have won their last three games and have been a constant at the top of the points table. They should play an unchanged side, with one exception. The in-form Dwayne Bravo, who has taken 6 wickets in 2 games, should come in for Sam Curran.
Chennai's openers, Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad, have been the backbone of their success so far. The duo has added 756 runs in 10 matches with 7 half-centuries. Deepak Chahar will keep leading the bowling unit with Shardul Thakur. Captain Dhoni's leadership has been phenomenal this season despite the limited resources Chennai had. The ability to play as a unit is what separates Chennai Super Kings from the other teams in the tournament.

Pitch and Weather Conditions
