The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) made a thunderous start to this edition’s Indian Premier League (IPL). The franchise lost their first match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), but made a stupendous comeback, winning three matches in succession. However, somehow their fate has managed to turn as the Sunrisers have lost three games to slide down to the sixth position of the points table.
Even as their game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) turned out to be a closely-fought one, they were on the drivers’ seat in both their last home games against the Mumbai Indians (MI) and the Delhi Capitals (DC) at the RGI Stadium in Hyderabad. In the fixtures, SRH’s fragile middle-order came to the fore. SRH succumbed lost their last eight wickets for a mere 15 runs in the game against Mumbai.
The other night Alzarri Joseph on IPL debut ripped the heart out of their batting. The Orange Army is now scheduled to play the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), the table-toppers in this IPL. The CSK are simply on a rampage, having won seven out of their first eight matches. With their previous victory against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Eden Gardens, CSK have almost qualified for the next round.
Last year, CSK defeated SRH four times and on the head-to-head count, MS Dhoni’s men are leading 9-2. The next game would be played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad. In the meantime, SRH need to be wary of one batsman and that’s Ambati Rayudu, who may not be in the best of forms, but can turn up with a match-winning inning on his day.
