Sunrisers Hyderabad is looking one of the most threatening teams of IPL 2019 season. The men in Orange shook off the disappointment of the defeat in the opening game against Kolkata Knight Riders away and are now back on track with the bang.
Unlike the yesteryears, this time it is SRH batting that is winning them games and bowling playing the second fiddle. David Warner and Jonny Bairstow have emerged as the best opening partners in the tournament, putting on three 100+ stands in the last three outings.
SRH look all balanced for now, with the likes of quality players in Kane Williamson and Shakib Al Hasan struggling to get into the XI.
Delhi Capitals are one of the most exciting sides in the tournament and they’ve demonstrated it so far. However, it is their lack of experience that has costed them on both occasions Capitals have been on the receiving end. If they fail to find a solution for the conundrum, there will be another collapse very soon.
Shaw-Dhawan partnership has worked for them while the bowling has looked decent with overseas recruits in Kagiso Rabada and Sandeep Lamichhane making notable contributions. Rishabh Pant has not been at his best yet, but he can come good do give Capitals the extra they need.
