In match 33 of the VIVO Indian Premier League
2019 (IPL 2019)
, Sunrisers Hyderabad
(SRH) will host Chennai Super Kings
(CSK) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad
on Wednesday. Leading the IPL points table 2019 initially, SRH
tumbled with a hat-trick of losses and are now at the sixth spot, just ahead of the struggling Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore. CSK
have been the only consistent side so far in the IPL 2019
with seven wins and a loss from their eight matches. The MS Dhoni-led side also tops the IPL 2019
points table and is unlikely to be relegated to a lower position anytime soon. Hyderabad
have not been able to take advantage of home conditions and it was visible again in their last match as the side collapsed against Delhi Capitals, losing 8 wickets for just 16 runs. Chennai would look to take advantage of the psychological pressure on SRH
on their turf. Given their brittle middle order, Kane Williamson
may bring in Manish Pandey in place of Ricky Bhui in SRH

SRH is heavily dependent on openers David Warner
and Jonny Bairstow
as no other batsman has been able to put runs on the board consistently. Even Kane Williamson's return brought no respite for the side. Things might turn from here as Williamson is known to deliver under pressure.
Mohammad Nabi was rested in their last match against Delhi and Abhishek Sharma received his debut cap after he responded with the wicket of a 'dangerous' Colin Munro in his first over.
Vijay Shankar, who has been selected in India's 15-member squad for the World Cup, will have to perform as his team needs the service of a full-fledged all-rounder.
The bowling line-up has recieved a boost with the inclusion of left-hand pacer Khaleel Ahmed, who first removed a dangerous Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan on meagre score and then scalped Rishab Pant's wicket.
The move to bring Ricky Bhui to provide stability in batting failed badly as he struggled to connect and threw away his wicket.
Hyderabad are under immense pressure as they face a dearth of victories and a tough opponent in CSK.
They will really have to get their act together.

went unchanged in their last match against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens as all seems to be going in their favour.
The bowlers managed to choke run-flow and the batsmen easily chased the target.
needed to make minor fixes in the team and he acted on time. The CSK skipper would still be looking for Dwayne Bravo's return after injury as the all-rounder is valuable for the team.
Faf du Plessis
has been in form as runs are coming from his bat. However, Shane Watson will have to start scoring before he loses his place. Imran Tahir
picked 4 wickets in the last match and Mitchell Santner put batsmen on leash yet again.
Chennai look balanced against an inconsistent Hyderabad batting but they can be in for a surprise from the 'orange army'.
