Bottom-placed SRH face uphill task against CSK
Virtually out of the playoff race, bottom-placed Sunrisers Hyderabad will hope to keep their new-found momentum intact when they face table toppers Chennai Super Kings here on Thursday.
Kane Williamson led from the front with an unbeaten half-century to help Hyderabad return to winning ways after five losses on the trot. It lifted the morale of the side as they have suffered eight defeats from 10 matches.
The biggest decision for Williamson-led think tank has been to drop their big hitting opener David Warner, who aggregated just 181 runs at an average of 24.37.
Their only IPL-winning (2016) skipper was axed twice this season after losing captaincy to the New Zealander. With speculation rife about the Aussie’s future at his favourite franchise Hyderabad, the onus would be on the Kiwi skipper to revive the fortunes of the Orange Army.
The MS Dhoni-led CSK on the other hand are coming on the back of a hat-trick of wins and have virtually sealed their playoff chances. It was Ravindra Jadeja who once again proved to be their game-changer as his eight-ball 22 runs cameo pulled off last ball two-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday.
