Starting from the Sunrisers Hyderabad side who so far have played amazing cricket and have lost just 3 matches. They are at no 2 spot with 6 wins out of 9 and the way their team executed the plans that was fabulous. Both openers David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan are in supreme form at the moment and have destroyed every bowling attack they have faced so far. There is some inconsistency in the middle order as none of them is scoring runs for the team on the regular basis and whenever both openers failed they lost that match. After an unfortunate start to the season, this has been an outstanding reply by Dhawan. Addition of Yuvraj Singh is a good gesture as he was looking quite well in the last match against Mumbai and if continues to play like that it will be a big bonus for SRH side because he has played 100 IPL matches and he has experience of this format. Coming towards the bowling of SRH that was amazing in the tournament and I can say the best in the tournament so far. The way their pacers have bowled so far and the way they have destroyed all the batting line ups in the tournament it was just sensational. Mustafizur Rahman and Bhuvneshwar Kumar both are in the list of highest wicket taker
and have been superb so far in the tournament. Ashish Nehra is continuing his great form and Sran also has done an excellent job for the team. Now they are just 2 wins away for the next round and still have 5 matches left in the tournament.
Coming towards a team who remained unlucky just because of injuries as almost half of their men got Injured and ruled out of the tournament. Yes, its team of MS Dhoni who can’t make it foe the next round. They have won just 3 and lost 7 matches so far in the tournament. They have called Usman Khawaja and George Bailey but now it’s looking 2 late for them and they can just end this tournament in a decent way by winning maximum number of matches for their fans. Bowling was the major issue that remained throughout the tournament and the biggest flop of this IPL was Ravichandran Ashwin who just took 3 wickets in his 10 matches and couldn’t anything good for the team. RPS will now have to use their players match to match and concentrate on every match. Their match is against the Sensational SRH who is in great form but they have won against them and they have to get confidence from this thing. Match will be on the same ground where Mumbai got all out on 92. Pitch will seam and SRH bowlers will be a big task to handle. Dhoni has to use his maximum no of pacers for this match.
