Chennai vs Hyderabad in Indian T20 League

Chennai have been one of the most dominant forces in the Indian Premier League over the years. The records speak for themselves, with the 3 three-time champions enjoying a favourable winning percentage against just about every team in the league. However, the one team that the MS Dhoni led side has absolutely dominated is Hyderabad, winning 10 of the 13 games played between these two sides.

This domination can’t even be attributed to a difference in strategies or a lack of quality for Hyderabad. The team for Hyderabad has over the years followed a similar template to their Chennai counterparts, keeping the core of the squad in place, remaining consistent in team selections and making sure that they have experienced heads around, a strategy that has worked wonders for Chennai.

In fact, Hyderabad is one of the most consistent teams in the league at the moment, reaching the play-offs in 5 out of 7 seasons of their participation, qualifying for the finals twice and even going all the way and winning the trophy once. The likes of David Warner, Kane Williamson, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan have put in great performances in every season, with other players chipping in with meaningful contributions too.

However, somehow they have not been able to defeat Chennai with any regularity. Their record against Chennai away from home gets even worse, with Hyderabad never winning a game at Chennai’s home ground.

With new management in place and world cup winning coach Trevor Bayliss in team, the Hyderabad fans will be hoping that their team can finally start winning against Chennai, but most neutral fans would still bet on Chennai to continue their dominance in this fixture.
