Sunrisers Hyderabad’s form looks to be back as they enter the city of Nizams Hyderabad. Their IPL campaign so far has been kind of a roller-coaster ride for them. Unbeaten in Hyderabad and yet to register a win away in two games. Now they have a bit similar challenge of Bowling vs Bowling against Delhi. Though both teams have some big names in batting but to me, they both are relying on their bowling. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan has powered Sunrisers Hyderabad to next level with their performance. In their last game they brought in Mohammed Nabi, Brainder Sran and Sidharth Kaul to boost their strength more and they did get the result in favour. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s spell under pressure of a score which was not enough deserves praise, in T20 bagging five wickets is not an easy task.
Before their last meetings in 2016 season, Delhi Daredevils had defeated Sunrisers only once in their previous six games, but in 2016 despite having a poor run of form Delhi was capable enough to win both their league games against Sunrisers Hyderabad. In the first game, Delhi dominated Sunrisers and won the game by seven wickets inside 18 overs. While in the next game Karun Nair came as a star and smacked 83 runs to power Delhi a last bowl happy finish against Sunrisers in Raipur.

Other than David Warner no batsman is looking consistent, Yuvraj Singh and Moises Henriques after the first game was not impressive. Their opening has failed to the expectations fans have from the duo Shikhar and Warner. The only way they have balanced themselves is with their bowling. Sunrisers batting has to offer some good big performances to reduce the workload of their bowling.
