Sunrisers Hyderabad (India)
The team is a part of qualifiers as it had paced in the fourth place of Indian Premier League Twenty20. The team is owned by Kalanithi Maran of the Sun TV channel network. Sunrisers Hyderabad in the first season in IPL 2013 reached the play-offs but was eliminated after losing the Eliminator Match on May 2013.
Yesterday, Sunrisers defeating Kandurata Maroons by eight wickets looks confident. Dashing Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan once again proved his ability by hitting 71 in the first match that led his team to a comfortable victory over Kandurata Maroons.
Parthiv Patel, all-rounder Darren Sammy and Thisara Perera are other players who can afford a good support with the bat. The presence of South African all-rounder JP Duminy is an additional advantage in the middle order. There may still be concerns over the bowling as fast bowler Steyn and Sammy were punished yesterday by Maroons. Ishant Sharma who took 2 wickets in four overs looks confident. Spinner Amit Mishra, wicket-taking bowler will trouble the Faisalabad Wolves with his spin.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Squad: Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Parthiv Patel, Cameron White, JP Duminy, Dale Steyn, Darren Sammy, Biplab Samantray, Thisara Perera, Karan Sharma, Hanuma Vihari, Ashish Reddy, Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma, Anand Rajan.
