On Friday, April 21, SRH Faces Criticism From Fans at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai, Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) faced a disappointing loss against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). This defeat marked their fourth loss in six matches this season, and they are currently in the ninth position in the points table, just above the Delhi Capitals.
In IPL 2023 SRH faces criticism from fans after poor performance against CSK vs SRH in IPL 2023, the team has struggled with their batting department on several occasions. However, in the current match, they decided to go with a new opening pair consisting of Harry Brook (18) and Abhishek Sharma (34) after Chennai captain MS Dhoni won the toss and chose to field first.
The opening pair’s performance was not impressive as they only managed a 35-run partnership in 4.2 overs. Unfortunately, Harry Brook lost his wicket while attempting to score quick runs. The middle-order batters faced a tough time against the skilled CSK spinners. They even had difficulty rotating the strike, let alone hitting boundaries.
Ravindra Jadeja delivered an outstanding spell (3/22) that restricted the run rate during the middle overs. The other bowlers from Chennai also supported his efforts by maintaining a tight grip on the game from the other end.
SRH managed to score 134/7 in 20 overs, which was below the expected score. However, Devon Conway’s impressive half-century (77* off 57 balls) helped CSK easily achieve the target in the penultimate over.

SRH Faces Criticism From Fans: In his opinion, they did not adjust to the conditions and establish collaborations, resulting in them falling nearly 30 runs short of the expected score on the surface.
“Disappointed again, never nice to lose. We let ourselves down with the bat. We could not build partnerships of any substance and we struggled to put on a good total. (On the pitch) We certainly said it was not a 130-odd wicket. It was along the lines of 160.”
“Partnerships were not there and it was tough to get momentum. They bowled really well in the middle overs, built pressure and did not give anything away. We knew they (spinners) would play a big role, it was about having your own plans. It was about situations on when to take them down or rotate the strike.”
