SRH Playing 11 today: The Sportsrush presents before you SRH’s Predicted Playing 11 for their ninth match of IPL 2019.
After three losses, the Sunrisers Hyderabad came back with a bang to defeat table toppers CSK. They need to keep this momentum going considering the fact that some of their crucial players will be leaving for national duty soon. They need to get as many points as possible before that.
They face a vulnerable KKR. This would be the best chance for SRH to gain a momentum at the right time. The middle order, though, desperately need to show up now.

The best opening combination in the League will look to put in another great performance. The Orange Cap holder, David Warner, needs to score big again along with Bairstow considering how dependent SRH are on them.
Kane Williamson has been injured and post his injury, he has not looked impressive. With 2 single-digit scores, the captain will need to introspect and give some stability to the batting line-up.
SRH have tried almost all the middle order batsmen they had. They are likely to stick to the one which won them the game against CSK. They were a batsman short but Rashid Khan can be a pretty good all-rounder at No. 7.

Hence, Vijay Shankar would continue to bat at No. 4 followed by Deepak Hooda who looked a little decent in the last match where he hit the winning runs. Yusuf Pathan would maintain his spot in all probability. Rashid Khan would
round up the middle order with some big shots to finish the innings.
The SRH bowling attack is one of the best in this IPL. With Bhuvneshwar Kumar showing some form as the tournament progresses and the inclusion of the left-arm pacer, Khaleel Ahmed, the pace attack looks lethal and they have managed to pick up wickets at critical moments. Sandeep Sharma, with his swing, adds to the balance of the attack as well.
Shahbaz Nadeem would be expected to put in another compelling performance with the ball on this slow pitch. Rashid Khan is a world-class bowler and he needs to pick up the important wickets and give SRH the edge.
