IPL 2019: Kane Williamson To Miss Clash Against Chennai Super Kings
The visitors of tonight clash at Cheppauk Stadium, Sunrisers Hyderabad has stuck with a major blow. The skipper of the team Kane Williamson, who got a blistering record in the spin conditions will be missing the game tonight, as he lost his grand mother. Williamson will head back home to finish the final rights of his demised grand mother.
The absence of Kane Williamson will certainly push Sunrisers Hyderabad to hand over the captaincy reigns to Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who already led the team in the initial matches of the tournament. So far, Bhuvneshwar Kumar led the team in five matches.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead the side:
In between, this could serve as the blessing in disguise for Sunrisers Hyderabad. The absence of Kane Williamson will help the team management to bring a spin-all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan or Mohammad Nabi, as the conditions in Chennai would favour spinners.
Possibly, they would opt for Shakib, as he got a good experience in bowling on such tracks and also a good option with the bat. The vice-captain of Bangladesh has always delivered goods for the team when it mattered the most. However, there is a good chance that Nabi might also get the nod, as he already showed his mettle for SRH.
Currently, Sunrisers Hyderabad are placed 4th in the points table with five victories in their 10 games so far. Now, they will travel Chennai to take on the home franchise in order to get their 6th victory in the tournament.
In the previous encounter between both the sides, Sunrisers Hyderabad has easily made things fall in place for the team. However, Chennai Super Kings played without their top-class cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who suffered a problem in his back.
