Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) won their last two games after losing three in a row, and will be high on confidence taking on Chennai Super Kings (CSK), who have lost their last two matches. They even got the better of the MS Dhoni-led team last week, and will have the psychological edge over their rivals. However, their middle order has not yet risen to the occasion and they seem to rely heavily on the duo of David Warner-Jonny Bairstow, which might be an issue against a strong CSK unit.
Chennai return to their fortress at Chepauk, a venue where they have won all four games that they have played this season. The track here assists the spinners, and produces low scoring games, and with CSK having a number of world-class spinners, they will walk into the game as firm favourites.

Bairstow has amassed 445 runs in IPL 2019 so far, including hitting a fifty in the last game against Kolkata Knight Riders. The Englishman also has a hundred to his name, and he, along with David Warner have been the key players for SRH this season. He has been picked over Dhoni as he bats higher up in the order, which allows him to face more deliveries and get a big score. Bairstow will be returning to England after this game, and will want to bow out on a high.
