Indian pace superhead Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who had to miss a couple of Sunrisers Hyderabad’s (SRH) matches due to a niggling back injury, might play Saturday’s (5 May) IPL 2018 encounter against the Delhi Daredevils (DD), hinted SRH skipper Kane Williamson on Thursday (3 May).
At the moment, Hyderabad is at the top of the IPL 2018 points table with only 2 losses out of their 8 matches that they have played so far in the ongoing 2018 edition of the tournament.
As per reports in PTI, Williamson told reporters on the sidelines of a promotional event, “We have had a few of days off now and obviously, he missed a couple of games. I don't think it was a serious injury, but something he did need to give rest... Hopefully, he will be fine by next game.”
Meanwhile, SRH head coach Tom Moody has stressed on the need to improve all departments to avoid slump at the final leg of the tournament despite their terrific display so far in the IPL 2018.
Moody said, “Business end of the tournament is where we want to be playing our best cricket. We feel we can still improve in all three departments.”
During the promotional event, Williamson and Moody also revealed their favorite Indian cricketers and they are MS Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar respectively.
DD on the other hand, under Shreyas Iyer's captaincy, has flourished in their last two out of the three played. Going into this match one expects Delhi to have the confidence of their close win over RR in a rain-marred game. Iyer's batting has lifted the game and that Rishabh Pant also coming into good form has just added to the potential of Delhi as a team off late.
