Tonight’s match in IPL 2019 – Chennai Super Kings (CSK) vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) – will be in focus particularly as CSK have lost their previous two matches whereas SRH has won their previous two matches, including one against Chennai.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad are currently placed at 4th place with 10 points while Chennai Super Kings have been displaced as the top-ranked team following two successive defeats. They will have a few questions to answer and they will be hoping to bounce back and finish the last few matches on a high.

Jonny Bairstow is set to depart for England after this match, meaning that SRH will be without him for the remainder of the IPL 12. The departure will have a huge impact and with David Warner also leaving soon, SRH will be looking to get as many wins as possible before both their openers are gone for national duties.
Chennai Super Kings would be expected to slot in Harbhajan Singh, who missed the last four games due to a stiff neck. There are question marks over Shane Watson’s performance however, he has proved, time and again, that he is a big match player. He was the man of the match in last year’s final against SRH as he struck a hundred to hand his team the title.
