Live scorecard Indian Premier League 2019 Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Chennai Super Kings in hyderabad
Suresh Raina captained Chennai Super Kings in place of MS Dhoni, who sat out the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Raina opted to bat first, with Sam Billings keeping wicket. Karn Sharma replaced the left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner.
Sunrisers Hyderabad brought in Yusuf Pathan and Shahbaz Nadeem.
Sunrisers Hyderabad, its pride hurt after losing the last three games, should change gears when it takes on the formidable Chennai Super Kings in the Vivo IPL-12 at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium here on Wednesday.
It is pretty obvious that once David Warner and Jonny Bairstow are dismissed, the batting crumbles and unless captain Kane Williamson, who too failed in the last match against Delhi Capitals, makes amends.
The middle-order performance, to say the least, has been pathetic.
Despite the changes made, there’s no change in the team’s fortunes which needs to win Wednesday’s game to avoid slipping further in the points table.
If it was the experienced trio of Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan and Deepak Hooda which failed to click in the earlier matches, the exciting young talent Abhishek Sharma, Ricky Bhui and Vijay Shankar too disappointed by not rising to the occasion in the previous game.
