It is hard to believe that we are already on the 17th match of the IPL 2022 - it really does seem that it only started a couple of days ago at the most. We were expecting a lot of entertainment this time around, and it is safe to say that the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League has not disappointed us yet. The 17th match sees the Chennai Super Kings play the Sunrisers Hyderabad, and read on to find out our IPL prediction of who will win the game and claim a vital two points.

Chennai Super Kings Team Preview

The Chennai Super Kings are the reigning champions, but they have got off to the worst possible start imaginable. If you had told someone that they would be sitting near the foot of the table with no wins from their first three matches, you would have been asked whether you have been drinking. They have lost to the Kolkata Knight Riders, the Lucknow Super Giants, and the Punjab Kings. If they lose their first four matches in the row, then we reckon their chances of retaining their title will be all but over.

In their last match against the PBKS, the CSK won the toss and opted to field first, and they got off to a great start by reducing their opponents to 14/2. However, Shikhar Dhawan and Liam Livingstone put on a partnership of 95 from 8.4 overs, with the latter top scoring with 60 from 32 balls. The PBKS finished with a score of 180/8 from their 20 overs, which is a pretty decent score on any pitch.

The pick of their bowlers was Chris Jordan, who bowled 4 overs for 23 runs and picked up 2 wickets. Dwaine Pretorius also bowled well conceded just 30 runs from his 4 overs and also collecting 2 wickets. However, the likes of Mukesh Choudhary and Dwayne Bravo went for 84 runs between them from a combined 7 overs. If they are going to prevent themselves from losing four matches on the trot, then all of their bowlers are going to have to be at the top of their game.

With regard to online cricket betting, there is one market that we really enjoy betting on, and this is the Top Bowler market. So, when it comes to the CSK, who do we think will be their top bowler in their match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad? Well, we would be tempted to go for Jordan because he bowled his yorkers really well in the last match, but we are actually going to recommend that you put your money on Bravo.

While 180 is a pretty good score, the CSK batsmen would have fancied chasing it down, but the chase was all but over with just 7.3 overs on the board as they found themselves 5 wickets down with just 36 runs on the board. They then stuttered to 98/7, before being bowled out for a mere 126 with 2 overs still left to play. The only batsman that could walk away with his head held high was Shivam Dube, who scored 57 from 30 balls.

Something else that we enjoy doing with regard to IPL betting is trying to predict the top batsman for a side. So, who do we think will top score for the CSK in this match against the SRH? Well, we think that it would be wise to put your money on either Dube or MS Dhoni as they have been the in form batsmen for the CSK.

Do we think that they will make changes to their playing XI for this game? Well, it is safe to say that Moeen Ali has not been doing an awful lot with the bat or the ball, and we would not be surprised if he was dropped for their next match against the SRH. If he is, then we think Devon Conway might come in to replace him. Yes, they would lose a bowling option, but they would hopefully gain some extra runs.

Sunrisers Hyderabad Team Preview

The SRH are sitting at the bottom of the table with two defeats from their opening two matches and a really bad Net Run Rate of -1.825. In their first match they lost to the Rajasthan Royals and in their second match they lost to the Lucknow Super Giants. Their fans will be sensing a bit of deja vu all over again as they had a horrendous 2021 campaign, finishing at the bottom of the table. Yes, there is a long way to go, but they need to be picking up points.

In their previous game against the LSG, the SRH won the toss and opted to field first, and they managed to restrict LSG to just 169 runs thanks to some classy bowling from Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Thangarasu Natarajan, and Washington Sundar, who conceded a total of 79 runs from their 12 overs, while picking up 4 wickets. However, Romario Shepherd was expensive, going for 42 runs from 4 overs, while Umran Malik went for 39 runs from 3 overs.

You will be able to wager on the Top Bowler for the SRH at all of the best IPL betting sites, but who would we put our money on being the best bowler for the SRH against the CSK? We would be tempted to bet on it being Kumar because he is, without doubt, their best bowler and he can bowl wonderful yorkers at the death. Also, death bowlers have the chance to pick up cheap wickets because the batsmen do not care if they get out because all they are after is some quick runs.

With just 169 runs on the board, the batsmen for the SRH would have been confident of chasing it down and earning their first two points, but they collapsed from 143/4 to 157/9 and ended up losing the match by 12 runs. Rahul Tripathi was their top batsman with 44 runs from 30 balls, while Nichola Pooran chipped in with 34 runs from 24 balls. However, there was not much else to write home about.

If you want to make an IPL prediction on the top batsman for the SRH in this game, we would recommend that you consider putting your money on Pooran. The West Indian youngster is really talented, and we think that there is a big score for him just around the corner.

Although they have lost their opening two matches of the 15th edition of the IPL, we actually do not see the SRH making any changes to their playing XI.

Toss Prediction

This match will take place at the DY Patil Stadium, and it is a ground where the chasing team often has the advantage because of the dew. For instance, from the IPL games that have taken part here, the chasing team has won close to 70% of the time. Thus, with regard to our toss prediction, we feel that the winning captain will opt to bowl first and bat second. With the stats that we have just given you, it would be surprising if he decided to do anything else.

Pitch Conditions

The pitch at the DY Patil Stadium is often a true wicket that provides the bowlers with a bit of spin or swing assistance. Also, the bounce and pace off the wicket ensures that that the batters can play the ball on the rise because the ball will come on to the bat very nicely. The average score for the team that bats first on this wicket in the Indian Premier League is 175, so the team that is put into bat will be looking to score around 190 runs to increase their odds of winnings.

Our Match Prediction

So, what is out match prediction today? Well, these matches have been so hard to call due to the fact that a lot depends on the toss of the coin - the team that has been batting second has had a big advantage due to the dew. However, we will not sit on the fence and just tell you to bet on the team that wins the toss. No, the side that we predict will win is the Chennai Super Kings. Yes, they have lost three matches in a row, but the Sunrisers Hyderabad have not been playing any better, and we feel that the CSK have the much better squad. So, this is why we believe that CSK will win this match today.
