IPL 2022 CSK vs SRH: Clash of the bottom-ranked teams as Chennai Super Kings take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in match 17 as we look at the best predicted playing 11 of both the teams.
It’s match 17 of Tata IPL 2022, and shockingly CSK and SRH are yet to get off the mark. While Chennai Super Kings have had the worst start in IPL history having lost the first three matches, Sunrisers Hyderabad have lost two in a row. It’s the worst start to a new season for these strong teams, who seem to be struggling alongside other strong teams, Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals.
Chennai Super Kings could have won two of these three matches, but poor captaincy and shocking batting display vs LSG resulted in them being on the losing side on both occasions. The team is in desperate need of revival, and unfortunately, MS Dhoni is not the official captain; even though he acts to be one on the field. It is Ravindra Jadeja, who will have to bring motivation to the team.
Similar to Chennai Super Kings, the Sunrisers Hyderabad are yet to get off the mark having lost two in a row. As cool as a captain one can get, Kane Williamson hasn’t found his mojo yet; be it batting or Captaincy. The team’s bowling has been it’s weakness as reliance on Indian bowlers and lack of a Frontline spinner like Rashid Khan is creating a lot of issues for the team.
Nevertheless, do both teams stick to the same playing 11 or do they make any changes? Let’s look at the best predicted playing 11 and top fantasy picks for CSK vs SRH Match 17 of Tata IPL 2022. Before that, let’s look at the key match details mentioned below.
- Type: IPL 2022 Match 17 – CSK vs SRH

IPL 2022 CSK vs SRH: Predicted Playing XI for Sunrisers Hyderabad
Even as Sunrisers Hyderabad have suffered two defeats in a row, the team may not make any changes to their squad. In the second match against LSG, they were going good for almost 90% of the match before losing the plot in the last few overs. With them playing the same 11, expect the likes of Abhishek Sharma, Abdul Samad, and Umran Malik to be given a lifeline.
However, Sunrisers Hyderabad may want to improvise their batting line-up. One thing they can definitely do is play Captain Kane Williamson at 3 and bring Rahul Tripathi as an opener. While Kane is more potent for number 3, Rahul Tripathi is more suited as an opener. With Markram and Pooran to follow, their batting-order looks more lethal with this order.
If at all SRH does any change, it will be to drop Abhishek Sharma and Abdul Samad, and bring in Priyam Garg and Vishnu Vinod. The team can also look to replace Umran Malik with Kartik Tyagi and Romario Shephard with Marco Jansen. However, the chances of this happening look slim. Nevertheless, here’s the best predicted playing 11 for SRH.

IPL 2022 CSK vs SRH: Predicted Playing XI for Chennai Super Kings
It’s ironic that a team like Chennai Super Kings, who were crowned as champions only a few months ago are yet to get off the mark in IPL 2022. Well, technically Mega Auction does bring a few challenges, but Chennai Super Kings had assembled a good squad, and most of their players are International senior resources. It is only the lack of application that has been missing.
Ideally, CSK make less changes to their squad, but there could be one potential chance that CSK may look at, and that is bringing Rajvardhan Hangargekar for Mukesh Chowdhury. Both, Mukesh and Tushar haven’t had a great IPL so far, and it wouldn’t be bad to replace them with another Indian talent, Rajvardhan Hangargekar.
One of the reasons for Chennai Super Kings’ underperformance has been the form of last year’s Orange cap winner, Ruturaj Gaikwad. The talented batter hasn’t had the best of starts this year having failed in all three innings so far. But it is only a matter of spending some time in the middle, and he should be back to his best.
IPL 2022 CSK vs SRH: Predicted Playing 11 for Chennai Super Kings:
Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja (C), Shivam Dube, MS Dhoni (WK), Dwayne Bravo, Dwaine Pretorius, Chris Jordan & Rajvardhan Hangargekar
Overall, one positive news from the match would be that at least one team will get off the mark in IPL 2022. Who gets off the mark is yet to be seen, but toss could play a big role as we have seen from the previous matches. The team winnings the toss shall choose to field first, and that could be a big plus.
Fantasy XI Prediction for CSK vs SRH:
Batters: Kane Williamson, Ruturaj Gaikwad & Robin Uthappa
Wks: Nicholas Pooran
All-rounders: Dwaine Pretorius, Ravindra Jadeja & Moeen Ali & Washington Sundar
Bowlers: Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Dwayne Bravo & T Natarajan
CVC Choice: Kane Williamson & Ruturaj Gaikwad
