Enduring poor form, Williamson scored 216 runs in 13 matches at an average of 19.63, with just one fifty this season.
The Sunrisers need to win their last game to harbour their slender chances of making it to the playoffs. SRH are currently at the eighth spot in the table, with 12 points after 13 matches.
