Titans vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, Group B, T20 Match 12, Champions League CL T20 2013 on September 28, 2013, 16:00 IST at JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi
|Chennai Super Kings||2||2||0||0||0||8||+0.642||389/38.5||375/40.0|
|Trinidad & Tobago||2||1||1||0||0||4||+0.438||295/40.0||274/39.3|
Currently, both teams are on four points from two games and by winning the match, they will push them to a tied top spot with the Chennai Super Kings. On the other hand, by losing the match it will become difficult as they will be given only one match left in hand.
Sunrisers would rely on their skipper Shikhar Dhawan and opener Parthiv Patel to provide them a solid platform. Both Dhawan and Patel failed to score big against the Super Kings on Thursday night, but on Saturday they would be careful enough to convert Titan’s tough bowling attack led by Morne Morkel and Roelof Van der Merve.
Another key player will be middle-order batsman Darren Sammy, who top-scored with 25-ball 50 on Thursday, while JP Duminy and Thisara Perera would also be expected to rise to the occasion.
Team Sunrisers Hyderabad (probable): Shikhar Dhawan (c), Parthiv Patel (wk), JP Duminy, Hanuma Vihari, Ashish Reddy, Thisara Perera, Darren Sammy, Amit Mishra, Dale Steyn, Ishant Sharma, Karan Sharma.
Titans made an impressive start in the first game, where AB de Villiers scored a hurricane 36-ball 77, while skipper Henry David’s responsible 52 paved the way for Titans challenging 185 for five, but in the second game they failed to build upon their starts, getting all out for 123. But Titans’ bowlers Brisbane Heat to 119.
Morne Morkel, Roelof van der Merwe, Row Richards and Marchant de Lange have proved their potential in the bowling department. Both the Titans’ batsmen and bowlers will be hoping to put up a great team work against an equally formidable batting and bowling line-up.
Team Titans (probable): Henry Davids (c), Jacques Rudolph, AB de Villiers, Farhaan Behardien, David Wiese, Roelof van der Merwe, Mangaliso Mosehle (wk), Heino Kuhn, Morne Morkel, Marchant de Lange, Rowan Richards.
