After almost two weeks of the tournament, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have finally found their winning combination.
After nearly two weeks in the tournament, Sunrisers Hyderabad finally found their winning combination in their last game against the Punjab Kings, where they were victorious by a margin of 9 wickets. From Khaleel Ahmed’s fate to Jonny Bairstow’s blow, there were a lot of positives that Hyderabad could have taken from this game.
Now that they seemingly know their ideal playing XI, the challenge will be to secure a few back-to-back wins, so they can be in the top four mixes, where Delhi capitals are right now. They have won three of their first four games, including a clinical victory over a formidable Mumbai Indians team in their final game. They will be playing after a long 5 day hiatus, so it will be interesting to see if this has had a rejuvenating effect or rather hampered their momentum.
