Sunrisers face Caribbean test tomorrow

Sunrisers face Caribbean test tomorrow

Keen to get into winning ways, qualifiers Sunrisers Hyderabad would not be taking a fired up Trinidad and Tobago lightly when the two sides square off in their Group B clash of the Champions League Twenty20 here tomorrow.

The Sunrisers, who lost their final qualification tie, would be looking to put their best foot forward against the Caribbean side whose confidence would be sky high after successfully defending a low total against Brisbane Heats in their opening group match yesterday.

The experience of playing at the Mohali's PCA track in the qualifiers would help the Sunrisers in their pursuit to get off to a strong start in the group.

Skipper Shikhar Dhawan looked in ominous touch in the qualifiers and would be expected to bat for as many overs as possible and pile up the runs, while all-rounder Thisara Perera would be banked upon to provide the impetuous.

The Hyderabad franchise is expected to field the same team with overseas players JP Duminy, Cameron White and Darren Sammy forming the crust of their middle order.
Their bowling, too, looks in good shape with South African speedster Dale Steyn leading the pack of India internationals Amit Mishra and Ishant Sharma.

The Sunrisers possess a very incisive bowling attack, one with lots of variety. While Steyn and Sharma would be expected to bowl fast and rattle the T&T top order, spinners like Mishra, Karan Sharma and Duminy offer a lot of options to the skipper in the middle overs
