After losing the first game of the season, in a high-scoring humdinger against Kings XI Punjab, CSK have rolled to three straight wins in dominating fashion to underline their title credentials once again, and they will be confident of making it four wins out of four when they take on the Sunrisers Hyderabad in Sharjah on Sunday.
On paper, there is very little weakness in this CSK side, with Brendon McCullum and Dwayne Smith providing that lethal combination at the top of the innings, while the likes of Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Faf Du Plessis and Ravindra Jadeja provide more firepower.
Their bowling unit is also equally capable with Ben Hilfenhaus acting as a calming influence in the fast bowling department, while Mohit Sharma and Ishwar Pandey have impressed. In R Ashwin and Jadeja, Dhoni has two quality spinners to play with, making this CSK lineup as formidable as they come.
"It is nice to be on a roll in T20 cricket and it is good to be on that roll at the moment," Hilfenhaus told IPL's official website. "Hopefully we can just continue that for the rest of the tournament."
CSK eased past the Mumbai Indians in their previous match, but they will be up against a Sunrisers side with confidence taking shape amongst the players, after the Hyderabad side picked up their first win of IPL 2014 with a four-run win over the Delhi Daredevils on Friday in a high-scoring encounter.
The explosive top three of Shikhar Dhawan, Aaron Finch and David Warner finally came to the fore on Friday, with all three batsmen scoring runs to help the Sunrisers to a big total of 184. Their bowlers were not quite up to the mark, a little surprisingly, against DD, but they did enough to ensure their first win in three attempts.
Hyderabad will know the importance of converting the opening win into a run of victories just like CSK have done this season, and they will again bank on their three batsmen at the top to give them that impetus.
Their bowling department has always been their strong suit, led by the best fast bowler in the world - Dale Steyn -- and if the bowlers can quell the CSK openers in the beginning, then they will grab the initiative.
Much will depend on how the batsmen perform and if the bowlers can restrict the CSK juggernaut. The Sunrisers will need to be perfect in both departments to get over the line against a Super Kings side right on top of their game.
