SRH knows the Vizag field much better than Delhi: Krishnamachari Srikanth
NEW DELHI: Former Indian Captain Krishnamachari Srikanth Thought Sunrisers Hyderabad Start As Favorites In The Eliminator Delhi Capitals On Wednesday.
In His Column For The Times Of India, The Former Indian Opener Wrote:" If Someone Had Told SRH That They Would Qualify For The IPL Playoffs With Only 12 Points, They Would Have Thanked Their Good Fortune. Having Luckily Made The Cut, The Former Champions Will Be The One Side That Will Play Without Any Pressure. That's When A Team Is Dangerous, Especially In This Format."
Both The Teams Are Locked 1-1 This Season, Winning Their Away Games Against Each Other.
" There Is No Doubt Delhi Capitals Are The Most Improved Team In The Tournament, Yet I Reckon SRH Will Start The Eliminator As Favorites. For Starters, They Know The Vizag Wicket Better Than Delhi. They've Played Enough Here In The Past To Know What Both Teams Have Tasks Dissimilar Routes To This Game But This Should Be An Exciting Contest. This Game Will Also Test The Captaincy Skills Of Shreyas Iyer. How He Uses His Resources Could Go A Long Way In Deciding The Outcome," Srikanth Added .
SRH Misses The Productive Australian Batsman David Warner While Capitals Have No Major South African Pacer Kagiso Rabada .
"Delhi will be found wanting in the pace department, with Rabada not being a part of their setup anymore. The South African always struck at the right moments to ensure the pressure was always on the opposition," Srikanth signed off .
