Chennai. Due to his strong bowling Delhi capitals Team to be here on sunday Indian Premier League (IPL) match Sunrisers Hyderabad Will start as a contender for victory against Rishabh Pant An interesting match can be seen between the aggressive skills of Rashid Khan and the clever bowling of Rashid Khan. This will be the 10th and last match of the season on the wicket of Chepak, who has been the target of critics due to his slow nature, and Pant and Sunrisers captain David Warner will be praying for a favorable batting wicket here. Out of the nine matches that have been played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepak, the teams scored over 170 runs on only two occasions. On this pitch, the batsmen have so far gone through rigorous examination. On such a wicket, ‘power hitting’ has proved to be significant and in such a situation, the ability of the Delhi captain to play long shots will prove to be important here.
Shikhar Dhawan is in good form but the Earth Sauve has not been able to run after the first match but the batsmen, depending on timing, may have to struggle here instead of strength. In such a situation, Pant’s responsibility increases. Hyderabad have played all four of their matches in Chennai and now they are aware of the nature of this wicket. The proof of this is a nine-wicket win over the Punjab Kings in the last match after three consecutive defeats. Sunrisers lack strong Indian players but the inclusion of New Zealand captain Kane Williamson in the playing XI balances his batting. T Natarajan is out due to injury and Manish Pandey has been able to score at a strike rate of 112. In such a situation, foreign players Warner, Johnny Bairstow, Williamson and Rashid have more responsibility. Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid has again shown consistency in his performance and his match against Pant is likely to be interesting.
Bowling is the weaker side of the Sunrisers as none of Sandeep Sharma, Siddharth Kaul and all-rounder Vijay Shankar have left an impact. After taking eight overs from Rashid and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in this way, Delhi will have 12 overs in which they can focus on scoring a good score. Delhi’s bowling is strong. For him, Ravichandran Ashwin’s bowling has been a matter of concern but he is hoping that Chepak’s slow wicket will be more than the flat wicket of Mumbai.
