Delhi Daredevils averted a major scare when their flight almost ran in another at the Raipur airport. It might be a touch difficult against the Sunrisers Hyderabad, who right now look in red-hot form.
The Sunrisers have been inconsistent throughout the tournament but in the recent games, the Hyderabad franchise have got their act together to string a few victories. Their openers have been a stellar form – both David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan have scored consistently – but their middle-order has been wilting far too often.
The bowling comprises of Dale Steyn and Trent Boult but Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been their top performer. Ravi Bopara has been a surprise package with the ball but Karn Sharma’s steady spells have held Hyderabad in good stead.
Delhi, after a brief exciting surge, have tapered off significantly. Except their two openers in Shreyas Iyer and Mayank Agarwal, the batting has been patchy. Their stars Yuvraj Singh and JP Duminy have flickered once in a while and hasn’t been able to stamp their authority in the big games.
Their bowling though hasn’t been too bad. The return of Zaheer Khan has added an edge to the new ball while their two-leggie combo of Imran Tahir and Amit Mishra have been amongst the wickets.
Delhi still have a small glimmer of hope of making it to the top-four but for that, their big stars need to stand up and be counted. Hyderabad, though would be hoping for otherwise.
