Williamson has missed five games this season
As far as Williamson's IPL campaign is concerned this season, he has already missed five matches.
He missed the opener due to a shoulder injury.
While he did return for the second game, he was out again for the next four games owing to another injury.
He then returned for the next three games, out which two were won by SRH.
Williamson likely to be replaced by Shakib or Nabi
It would be tricky to pick Williamson's replacement tonight.
Williamson, who was the Orange Cap winner last season, has managed just 28 runs this term.
Thus, chances are he would be replaced by Mohammad Nabi, who has been their lethal weapon on several instances.
However, Shakib Al Hasan could also make a comeback, although he has been expensive with the ball, in 2019.
SRH look to upset CSK
SRH are all set to take on CSK in Chennai on Tuesday.
CSK sit on the second spot and are likely to go all out for a win after losing the last two matches.
Meanwhile, SRH have been in brutal form, especially their opening pair of David Warner and Jonny Bairstow.
They could pull off a surprise and cement their position in top four.
