The teams: Sunrisers Hyderabad v Rising Pune Supergiants. Warner has been SRH’s standout performer and the team will be happy that Dhawan has spent some time in the middle over the last 2 games. Even though he has been a little scratchy, it is important that Dhawan is playing himself back into form as he is a crucial part of SRH’s campaign. Expect some tricky selection choices for SRH in the near future as both Yuvraj and Nehra are close to full fitness. RPS, on the other hand, lost once again in the last over to KKR and will be doing some serious soul-searching. With KP out for the whole tournament through injury, the other foreign players Perera, Faf, Smith and Albie Morkel will have to do the bulk of the work for this team.
The Venue: Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Hyderabad. Although the wicket here is considered a flat track, both matches played here saw teams scoring only in the 140s and the 150 barrier has not been broken yet. Expect some fireworks at this ground
Our picks for your fantasy cricket team
David Warner – Our pick once again. You just can’t ignore Warner! He is in sublime form and is single-handedly taking his team to convincing victories.Warner is definitely in the running for the Orange Cap – make sure you pick him!
Ajinkya Rahane – Rahane is an excellent IPL opener. Beautiful to watch, he is consistent and looks to bat through the innings. He has done well in the tournament so far and will be hoping to convert his 50s and 60s into larger scores to help his team win matches. He might also look to accelerate just a little bit more in the early part of his innings.
Deepak Hooda – Our *wildcard* pick for this game, Deepak Hooda will want to make himself indispensable to SRH before Yuvraj Singh gets fit. Hooda should bat within the top 5 and will want to use his part time spin bowling to make a big impact.
