Which team would shine more ? #SRHvsCSK

Tuesday, April 16, 2019 • Common Sport News Comments

In a face-off between two teams with the extreme and vibrant jersey colours, The crowd at Hyderabad would look to see something special on Wednesday night 

Last year's finalists, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Are in the downhill this season; having won just 3 out of their first seven matches. 

Despite being famously known as one of the best bowling units, Thier batting has been a major concern when looked beyond top 3. Sometimes even top 2.

They have lost their previous three matches. Two of those, Were home matches in which the orange army crashed terribly, Against the Mumbai Indians and the Delhi capitals. On both occasions, SRH were chasing totals under 160 (137 and 152 )

Yet, Heavy landslides and hurricanes caused by Alzarri Joseph ( The best in IPL by a bowler 6/12 in 3.4) made SRH crash out to 96 all out in 17.4 against MI.

Things became even worse against Delhi capitals, As even a solid opening stand between Warner and Bairstow couldn't see them through. From being 101/2 in 15.1 overs, SRH got crumbled like pieces of junk in a junkyard, As the trio of Rabada, Keemo Paul and Morris went on a wicket-taking spree and the sunrises lost the match by 39 runs. 

Contrary to this, CSK is already having one foot right in the gateway to playoffs with 7 wins in 8 games.

The fifty that Raina scored against KKR at Kolkatta, Will be a huge morale boost for the entire unit. Jadeja's Expressway cameo played a vital role in CSK's most recent victory. Faf du Plessis is making vital contributions in terms of catching as well Since he came into the XI. Only Watson's batting form could be perceived as a negative element of CSK., As the allrounder hardly bowled in the recent past ! 

With the ball, Imran Tahir is making a huge impact even in non-favourable tracks. Shardul Thakur is expected to continue his rare performance of excellence from the previous match. Deepak Chahar would continue being the best exponent of the powerplay phase .

Its high time SRH refurnishes their middle order and make use of their reserves, In an effort to avoid such embarrassing situations.
