KKR eyes for their hattrick in IPL 8


Vizag: After conquering Delhi, KKR’s main focus is to get the better of Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next game at Vizag on Wednesday. The Gautam Gambhir-led KKR’s win against the Delhi Daredevils took them to fourth position in the points table with three wins and just one loss so far.

Hyderabad, on the other hand, lost to Delhi in their previous encounter and are currently lying sixth on the table with three losses and merely a win as yet.The defeat against Delhi was morale-crushing to say the least given that Hyderabad fell short by mere four runs.Considering the situation in which the team is currently in, the think-tank has much to sort in a line-up which relies heavily on foreign imports as far as impact players are concerned.

Their batting seems fragile if the opening duo of skipper David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan fails to give a good start. In fact, even that wasn’t enough in their previous match against Delhi where the middle order let the side down.Hyderabad’s bowling is spearheaded by South African star Dale Steyn and a lot would depend on what he can extract from his four overs along with Bhuvneshwar Kumar. KKR, meanwhile, have been performing quite well and in the previous match, it was the bowling which did the job for the title-holders.
