Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner will be feeling the pressure ahead of their match against Mumbai Indians at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Saturday.
Hyderabad have played two matches so far and failed to open their points account. They lost their opening match of their campaign against Kolkata Knight Riders and then went on to suffer defeat against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Sunrisers, who are one of the consistent teams in the league, will be disappointed with their start and will try hard to earn a positive result on Saturday.
They have to play three more matches in Chennai and after the loss against RCB, Warner spoke about how the wicket will only get better at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
"I was quite disappointed with how we went – cross-batted shots against left-arm orthodox. It just hurts. We have another three games here, the wickets are going to get better here. We need to try to take powerplay wickets and need to have one big partnership in the middle," Warner said.
Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians bounced back after their defeat in the first match against RCB with a superb victory over KKR on Tuesday. Defending a tricky total, Mumbai bowlers turned up with impressive performances as they beat Eoin Morgan's side by 10 runs.
"It was an excellent fightback by each one of them. You don't see a game like this often. We will take lots of confidence from this game as we move forward," Rohit said at the post-match presentation ceremony.
"Rahul (Chahar) came and got us crucial wickets in the middle. Krunal (Pandya) bowling those overs at the end was vital as well. It was a complete team effort and credit to all the bowlers."
