The Sunrisers faced exactly the same situation in 2016. They won three matches in a span of five days and won the title that year. Four and a half years later it is facing the same situation again. In order to reach the playoffs this time .. besides winning all the three matches to be played this week … the rest of the teams will have to wait for the results.
Winning the Sunrisers’ last three matches has not been easy. Because the Orange Army is going to face the top-3 teams in the points table, Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai in the rest of the matches. The Orange Army, which has won just four matches this season and lost the rest, will advance to the playoffs if they perform to the fullest. On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab, which lost a series of matches at the beginning of the season, is on the swing after winning five matches in a row. Now the Sunrisers also need to move forward with the Punjab spirit. Fans are hoping that Birthday Boy Warner will explode.
Delhi Capitals have lost their last two matches. Apart from that, Delhi had earlier lost to Sunrisers. Under pressure, the Delhi team has a chance to get into the ring with the goal of winning this match for sure. Opener Shikhar Dhawan is in excellent form while Rabada is bowling well. Prithviraj Shah’s absence, Rahane not clicking .. Pant’s inability to play aggressively as before have become a minus for Delhi.
Sunrisers midfielder on the other hand came first again. Odi stunned the fans at the stage where they had to win the match easily against Punjab. There is a possibility of changes in the squad for the match against Delhi. There is a chance that Priyam Garg or Abdul Samad will be replaced by Virat Singh or Abhishek Sharma. With Dubai likely to become the second pitch to bat for the second time, the team that wins the toss has a chance to choose to bat first.
