Match no 33, Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Chennai Super Kings, 17 apr 2019, Hyderabad ,20:00 IST

Recommended Posts

13:50

Preview: Sunrisers Hyderabad, once table-toppers, but who have now slipped to sixth in the VIVO IPL 2019 standings, will take on current leaders Chennai Super Kings in Match 33. 

Sunrisers have now suffered three consecutive losses – two of those at home; it is the first time in four seasons that SRH have lost two consecutive matches at home. The big worry for SRH is the lack of depth in their batting line-up. Openers David Warner and Jonny Bairstow won them matches in the early part of the tournament, but when the need arose for the middle order to chip in, they were exposed; against the Mumbai Indians and the Delhi Capitals, they were bundled out for 96 and 116 respectively. 

There was an attempt made by SRH management to address the problem. Kane Williamson, the regular captain – who missed several of the earlier matches because of injury – returned to bat at number three. Despite Williamson’s inclusion, SRH still need the batters in the middle order to do better than they have fared so far. One player – perhaps Vijay Shankar, or Manish Pandey (if selected) – need to take up the responsibility of finishing. A left-field selection option available to Sunrisers is to have an Indian batsman – Shreevats Goswami or Wriddhiman Saha – open the innings in place of Jonny Bairstow, and include Shakib al Hasan in the middle order. 

The Super Kings have found a way to win despite not having their first-choice players available to them. Lungi Ngidi, who was expected to be one their key bowlers, was ruled out before the tournament, while Dwayne Bravo – the highest wicket-taker in the T20 format – has missed the last few matches because of injury. Several players have put their hands up and delivered match-winning performances; that five different players have won Match awards illustrates that CSK haven’t depended on one or two players. The team management must be concerned about the lack of runs from their openers – particularly Shane Watson, who has now managed 67 runs in his last six hits. Murali Vijay and Sam Billings are options available for CSK to explore. 

SRH will want David Warner to retain the Orange Cap; the Australian, whose natural game is to bat aggressively, has shown his willingness to play second fiddle to Jonny Bairstow who has often begun briskly. Warner loves playing in Hyderabad, and against the Chennai Super Kings; he has scored half-centuries in his last three hits against them. 

The Super Kings will be delighted that Suresh Raina is back among the runs. The left-hander had a disappointing first half of the tournament – scoring 136 runs in seven innings. But against KKR in the previous match, he scored 58 not out in a successful run-chase and the left-hander will take a lot of confidence from that performance. Raina, who needs 48 runs to once again become the highest run-getter in the IPL, and MS Dhoni (CSK’s top run-getter) will be central characters in CSK’s batting plans. 

Both teams have used their spinners very effectively, and one can expect more of the same in this match; Rashid Khan and Imran Tahir are the ones likely to cause plenty of damage.

Team news

Sunrisers Hyderabad

The home side made four changes last time around. It is highly unlikely that all four will get to hold onto their spots.

Probable XI: David Warner, Jonny Bairstow (WK), Kane Williamson (C), Vijay Shankar, Yusuf Pathan, Deepak Hooda, Abhishek Sharma, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Siddharth Kaul

Chennai Super Kings

Dwayne Bravo did warm up on the eve of the game but Super Kings wouldn't want to push his recovery considering their luxury at the top of the table. The visitors are likely to field the same XI.

Probable XI: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (C & WK), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mitchell Santner, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Imran Tahir

Vijay shankar should use this as an opportunity to stay till the end not throw his wicket away like he has been doing. He is not a slogger. He doesn't have these dinky shots as well. He should play within his limitations.

What are the ids everyone in the wc squad will be playing with only 50% intensity. Last thing you want is to be injured and miss your shot.

 

Already saw with Shami and Rahul

Bowling and fielding is where most of the injuries happen. When it comes to batting, more the better.
