Sunrisers Hyderabad v Rising Pune Supergiants:
This is Tuesday and we are here in Hyderabad for the important match between the Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rising Pune Supergiants that will be played at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad. Match will be live on your TV screens at 7:30 PM Pakistan Standard time.
Starting from the home side who will use the home ground advantage to thrash the Pune side struggling right now. Hyderabad combination which was not setting up effectively at the start of the tournament now working quite well and they have won 3 consecutive matches in a row. Thanks to their captain who struck to his combination and the way he has led his side from the front was just mind blowing. He is in the top run scorer list and he has scored in almost every match so far. The way their other batsmen are playing shows that they all are looking in good touch. Good news for the SRH fans is that their dazzling opener Shikhar Dhawan start scoring runs and he is looking full of colors now. Eoin Morgan is also looking in a good touch and he has scored runs for the team whenever required. Bowlers are the main reason of their victories as they always restrict the openers to a low total which helps their batsmen for chasing. Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mustafizur Rahman and Bipul Sharma all have bowled superbly so far for the team. They not only took wicket but their economy rates are also looking well. Mustafizur Rahman and Bhuvneshwar Kumar both are in the list of top wicket takers. As a whole SRH combination is working well and the plans are executed quite rightly which is helping the team a lot.
Coming towards the rising Pune Supergiants who has played 5 match and lost last 4 consecutive matches so far. The way their batsmen and bowlers are performing was very pathetic. Despite of having some really experienced player of this format and one of the best captain Pune as a side has struggled so far and that is due to their combination. Most of their batsmen are overseas and so far it’s looking that they are still struggling with their form. Faf Du Plessis who was looking in a good touch is now totally out of color. Also Steven Smith in the whole tournament didn’t played a single good innings to admire. Coming towards the biggest blow which RPS have faced is the injury of Kevin Pietersen which has totally destroyed their combination. Now they will have to do something out of the box and try to do some new experiments as these are not working well and MS Dhoni have to use all his experience if he really wants to stay in the tournament. There is a chance that Irfan Pathan or RP Singh might play in place of Ishant Sharma in next match.
Coming toward the pitch of Hyderabad which is a rock solid pitch but the patches of grass can favor bowlers of SRH.
