Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner opted to chase on the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Sunday within the IPL 2020 match towards Kolkata Knight Riders. Both sides made two adjustments to their facet.
“We’ll have a bowl. The wickets have been challenging in Dubai compared to this one. Two changes for us – Thampi replaces Khaleel, we have left out a spinner,” mentioned Warner.
KKR, in the meantime, introduced in leggie Kuldeep Yadav and pacer Lockie Ferguson instead of Chris Green and Prasidh Krishna.
There is a cause why KKR introduced again Kuldeep into the lineup. SRH’s two foremost top-order batters battle towards leg-spin deliveries – Kane Williamson averages 24.5 towards Chinaman in IPL whereas Jonny Bairstow has been dismissed seven occasions at 30.7 towards leggies. And Kuldeep has taken 10 wickets towards SRH, probably the most he has towards any IPL opponent, at 7.78 runs per over.
Sunil Narine has as soon as once more been unnoticed regardless of IPL clearing his bowling motion.
“We will have to improve our basics better, we didn’t do that against MI in our last match. Two changes for us – Kuldeep and Lockie in, for Green and Prasidh. We don’t want to rush Sunil back, we’ll give him some time,” mentioned Morgan.
