Match will be played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Daredevils. Match will be played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad. Match will be live at 7:30 PM Pakistan Standard time.
Starting from the Delhi side who so far have played this tournament quite well and the way their captain has led his side by example is quite pleasing to watch. Daredevils aren’t any closer to ratifying their participation in the next round. Two consecutive defeats before heading into their break has only complex the equation for them, as the mid-table cramming has been on a constant rise and surely needs some good display of game if they really want to go through the next round. Delhi batting line up is the most unpredictable batting line so far in the tournament as u can’t expect how they are going to bat in the next match and thing has caused a bit of a panic situation for Delhi side. Still they have a lot of great batsmen in which JP Duminy is the backbone of their side and Carlos Braithwaite and Chris Morris has played a role of Match winner in the tournament so far. Their bowlers are in terrific form the way their captain has led his side from the front and the way their spinners have bowled from their heart. Imran Tahir and Amit Mishra are the 2 spinners who contributed a lot in the winnings of Delhi and their bowlers have been superb specially in the death overs. For this u can also give credit to their captain who has selected the field placement extremely well and that is what they need in the remaining matches.
Coming towards the table toppers and the hosts for that match SRH who so far have stunned everyone with their performance and so far have won 7 out of 10 games. The way their batsmen are attacking the bowlers and the way their bowlers are destroying the best batting line ups of the tournament it is just incredible to watch. David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan have played extremely well and is considered as one of the best opening pair of tournament. Addition of Yuvraj Singh in the side is a bonus as he is an experience player and have ability to play a role of match winner. Their middle order hasn’t done anything special so far and need a bit of improvement for the next matches. Their bowling is considered the best in the tournament and all of their pacers are in red hot form. The way they defended a small target against Pune it was just admiring. Overall SRH is playing excellent cricket and they just need to continue their such form to go through the next round and their priority will be to end their tournament at top 2 position.
Match will be in Hyderabad and the pitch will favor the pacers much as compare to spinners. The pitch is overall flat and dry. There is no rain forecast for the match.
