After a poor start with two back to back losses, bottom at the table Sunrisers Hyderabad will try their level best to win against struggling Delhi Daredevils, who are eagerly waiting for the return of Kevin Pietersen. Last season, SRH had reached the playoffs but this year is disappointing so far.
Delhi Daredevils had a mixed season as they began with a loss against RCB, win against KKR and a batting nightmare, an embarrassing 93-run loss to CSK. They are hurt badly by the absence of Kevin Pietersen, who hasn’t played any match so far due to finger injury. His comeback is going to be the morale booster for the team.
Hyderabad seems good on paper with explosive batsmen Finch, Warner and Dhawan but they could not do any good for the team so far. The middle-order is struggling too, the bowling has been good with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Dale Steyn and Amit Mishra.
In bowling Delhi depends heavily on Mohammad Shami. Jaydev Unadkat is also good but they are affected by the absence of Nathan Coulter-Nile due to a hamstring injury. Spin department is going to be the problem for the Daredevils because Nadeem and Duminy has been ineffective so far.
