Sunrisers Hyderabad will be looking to resurrect their campaign when they host the defending champions Chennai Super Kings at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium on Wednesday. The two sides will lock horns for the first time after last year's summit clash where CSK went on to win their third IPL title. The 2016 champions now find themselves at the sixth spot in the points tables after their three consecutive losses. They have only managed six points in their seven games. The 'Orange Army' will be up against a dominant Chennai Super Kings who seem to be unstoppable at the moment. 

In their previous game against Delhi Capitals on Sunday SRH had done well to restrict the Delhi Capitals to 155/7 after they had won the toss and elected to bowl first.In reply SRH, got off to a good start as their star openers David Warner and Jonny Bairstow added 72 runs for the opening wicket. Warner scored yet another half-century which kept the 'Orange Army' in the hunt. He scored a brilliant 47-ball 51 at a strike rate of 108.51. However, post his dismissal, the 2016 winners lost all their remaining wickets for 10 runs to be bundled out for 116.
