Struggling Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) will take on another struggling side Delhi Daredevils (DD) on a double-header day on Friday. SRH has already lost both its game against Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). The reason behind side’s poor show is the failure of its three top order batsmen namely Dhawan, Finch and Warner. Team’s batting relies a lot on these three batsmen and these three have let their side down in both the occasions. No other batsman has also done any good performance for the side which adds more worry to team. Bhuvneshwar and Mishra have done well for the team in bowling while Steyn is yet to prove his world’s best bowler tag. SRH need a lot of improvement in batting if they want to challenge DD in their third match of IPL 2014.
Similar to SRH, DD has also lost two of its three matches while has won only one match. Team has felt absence of its regular captain Kevin Pietersen who is expected to be available for this game. JP Duminy is the best batsman of DD so far while Dinesh Kathik has shown sign of improvement in his batting. Other batsmen have not impressed much. Bowling of the DD team has been average in three matches. Fans can anticipate a good fight between these two teams on Friday.
Timings: Match Scheduled to begin at 4:00 PM IST on 25 April 2014
Venue: Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai (UAE)
