Sunrisers Hyderabad coach Tom Moody wants his team to perform well without taking lightly match to Kolkata Knight Riders at Bengaluru.
Both team openers were left-handers and also the captains of their respective teams facing off in the Eliminator and can’t get creepier you would think.
SRH coach Moody said that both are captains who like to lead from the front and do it successfully.”
But, skipper David Warner worried about the evening’s game centres more on fitness doubts as Ashish Nehra is lashed out while Yuvraj Singh has to pass a fitness test, with Gautam Gambhir, it is more container of making a tactical call, as he something normally does very well.
The 51-year-old SRH coach Moody said “In a way, KKR have their own headaches. The inclusion of (Sunil) Narine upfront has thrown their middle order into a bit of confusion because you’ve got two players batting at three and four (Gambhir and Robin Uthappa) who are so used to batting at one and two and they have been successful at one and two.”
Moody added, “But I am more concerned about our balance and their role clarity as opposed to the issues that may concern them.”
Talking about his team’s plans confidently but didn’t want to make any predictions about the game, Moody said: “We have played KKR twice and we have seen how they go about the power play period and so far we have been successful in nullifying that.”
“Yes, they got off to flier here against RCB. We hope we don’t bowl quite as inconsistently as that.”
