L.W.W.W.L.L.L. This is Sunrisers Hyderabad’s form chart this season so far. SRH’s equation is pretty simple, they were at some point in time flying high but also stumbled more than even they were deserved to. In the southern derby match, SRH will lock horns with Chennai Super Kings at Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad on Wednesday. Dhoni’s men are on a high with seven wins in eight encounters.
Breaking winning streak and halting winless run? This could be a question for Hyderabad franchise if they can break Chennai Super Kings’ back and be back on course. Considering the recent form, Sunrisers Hyderabad has been tangled in dilemma and dejection. Their main concern is the weak links in the middle, the dilemma is about their mid-order and dejection is due to their back-to-back three drubs.
Meanwhile, while preparing for the all-important clash against ‘Men-in-yellow’ skipper Kane Williamson who has played just two of the seven encounters played was seen hitting the ball sweetly in the nets. Williamson, who hasn’t had the best of IPL so far was seen facing the spin sensation Muttiah Muralitharan.
Muralitharan, who is a part of team management set up was seen bowling to Williamson. In a five second video posted on Sunrisers Hyderabad’s twitter handle, Muttiah was looking is prime touch as he tossed the ball up to Kane, who managed to drive the ball through the cover region.
Here’s the video:
This remains to be seen if SRH can get back to the winning ways, and upstage Chennai Super Kings.
