Two teams from bottom half of the IPL standings table, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Daredevils are set for an encounter later today in Dubai. Delhi has had an unimpressive start to their IPL campaign with a solitary win in three matches played so far, while Hyderabad has not won a single game so far.
In Aaron Finch and David Warner, Hyderabad
possesses two explosive batsmen along with their skipper, Shikhar Dhawan. But, these players have not been able to impress much with their willow, hence leading to defeats, though during the first match, they batted decently well. If Hyderabad
is to perform better, these batsmen needs to score maximum number of runs for the team.
But, it is their bowling line up, which looks better than their batting. Dale Steyn, one of the best bowlers in world
cricket is their main bowler, supported by other bowlers such as B Kumar, Irfan Pathan
, A Mishra, Darren Sammy etc. These bowlers could make life difficult for the Delhi
batsmen, if they bowl in the right areas.
Delhi batsmen, on the other hand would be eager to unsettle these bowlers. Dinesh Karthik, their skipper along with other batsmen such as Ross Taylor, Duminy, Mayank Agarwal, Vijay, Tiwary form a strong batting line up, but they have not been able to deliver the goods, hence are positioned in the lower half of the table. But, their bowlers also needs to deliver the goods, if they are to win the match.
Irrespective of the teams composition, it is the team, which plays well for that span of three hours, who will win the match.
