Date & Time: on Sunday, 14th April; 08:00pm IST
Venue: Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad
As we come halfway into the season, unusually Sunrises Hyderabad find themselves in the bottom half of the table with 3 wins and 3 losses. On the other end, Delhi fared better compared to previous seasons so far, although they have also lost 3 and won 4 games. In the last game between these two sides, Sunrisers Hyderabad won by 5 wickets in a low scoring affair.
Sunrisers Hyderabad might be tempted to bring in Kane Willamson to strengthen the middle order but such a move will leave Mohammad Nabi out, which might not be a good option against Delhi.
The only change Delhi might consider is to bring in Sandeep Lamichhane in place of Kermit Paul.
A sporting surface is likely to be provided for the match, where both pacers and spinners have equal say. The average score of the team batting first in last four games at this venue has been 184.
You just cannot go past Warner in the Sunrisers Hyderabad, as he has been at his consistent best so far in the season even without much game time before the tournament. We expect another Warner special on Sunday in Hyderabad, where he has amassed 230 runs in the last four games.
The Delhi boy is slowly getting into his groove this season. He scored a crucial 97 runs against Kolkata which played a huge role in Delhi’s victory. Hyderabad is a familiar venue for Dhawan as he has played most matches here in the last several seasons.
He has produced good numbers almost every time he has come up against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He scored 190 runs at a strike rate of 160 against the SRH bowlers in the last 5 encounters. However he has to be a touch careful against spin, as he was dismissed by Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi in the past.
He is proving to be a potent asset for the team with his bowling, as he has produced quite a few pivotal breakthroughs for Delhi so far in the season. His form at this venue is also in his favor, where he has picked 5 wickets in the last 2 matches played here.
Batsmen have employed a safe route against Rashid in this season, as his 3 wickets so far in the season is proof to that. Now it’s time for him to find new ways to dismiss batsmen, even if they try to play him out, as his wicket-taking ability has become so crucial for Sunrisers with pacers struggling in this season.
