Hyderabad vs Chennai recent form
Hyderabad come into the fixture as the fourth-placed team in the Indian T20 League points table. Kane Williamson’s side saw their five-match winning run end at the hands of table-toppers Gujarat in their last outing.
Half-centuries from Abhishek Sharma (65) and Aiden Markram (56) helped Hyderabad post a score of 195/6. In reply, Gujarat chased the target as they hit 199/5 thanks to blitzkrieg knocks from Wriddhiman Saha (38-ball 68) and Rahul Tewatia (40 runs off 21 balls). Umran Malik claimed a five-wicket haul albeit in a losing cause.
Chennai, meanwhile, suffered their sixth defeat of the Indian T20 League 2022 campaign when they were humbled by 11 runs by Punjab. Ravindra Jadeja and Co. are virtually out of contention for a play-off berth and their increasing injury list puts them under pressure to put up a fight against their in-form opponents.

Hyderabad vs Chennai prediction for Indian T20 League 2022
Team Hyderabad are backed by the odds to register a win against Team Chennai in match 46 of the Indian T20 League 2022.
Given the form they are enjoying and coupled with Umran Malik’s steady rise as a dangerous bowler, Hyderabad will look to exploit the loopholes in Chennai’s playing strategies as they eye victory to strengthen their top-four hopes.
Chennai, on the other hand, will take inspiration from their head-to-head record to possibly cause an upset for Hyderabad.
