Who will win?
Both teams need a victory to open their accounts on the points table.

Sunrisers Hyderabad is missing their key players from previous seasons because they are facing a lot of difficulty in picking the best combination this season.
Chennai Super Kings are looking ahead of Sunrisers Hyderabad in all departments and they also have a good record against them in the past.
Hence, our prediction for match 17 is that Chennai Super Kings will beat Sunrisers Hyderabad.
