Predicted Playing 11

Chennai: Shane Watson, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Dwayne Bravo, Ravindra Jadeja, Harbhajan Singh, Imran Tahir, Deepak Chahar, Monu Kumar

Hyderabad: Kane Williamson, David Warner, Manish Pandey, Jonny Bairstow, Vijay Shankar, Rashid Khan, Deepak Hooda, Khaleel Ahmed, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddharth Kaul, Sandeep Sharma

Weather and pitch report

The pitch in Hyderabad has been quite underused due to very few matches being played at the venue. But the wicket is considered as a flat track and that slows down as the game progresses. In other words, it is a very spin-friendly surface

H2H record

Chennai and Hyderabad have met a total of 10 times before IPL 2019. Currently, the pendulum swings in Chennai’s favour with 8 wins to Hyderabad’s paltry 2. The highest score statistic stays with Chennai, having scored 222 to SRH’s 192. The lowest score statistic also sees Chennai on top with 170 to Hyderabad’s 139.

Wicket keeper

In this IPL 2019 matchup, MS Dhoni goes up against Jonny Bairstow. But the Englishman has the edge due to his terrific form, inspite of the team results. He boasts of a highest score of 114 in IPL 2019 at a strike rate of 156.70.


On the batting front, three CSK players have been on fire in the past few games. They are, Suresh Raina, Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis. These three are on the IPL 2019 Dream 11 list for the Super Kings. Two places in the batsman list are occupied by Hyderabad’s Vijay Shankar and David Warner. All five players are excellent in their own right and should perform well in Wednesday’s game.

All rounders

Only one all-rounder makes it onto the IPL 2019 list with Chennai’s Ravindra Jadeja taking that honour. Jadeja has scored a total of 55 runs from 8 matches at a strike rate of 134.14 with 7 wickets under his belt. He also has an economy of 6.46 in IPL 2019.
