Despite being one of the most consistent team in recent years, Sunrisers Hyderabad have just not quite managed to hit it off this season. They have managed to win five and are still in top four of the points table but inconsistency has put them in a spot of bother. With 5 wins in 11 games, they now need to win their remaining three games in order to make it to the playoffs. Fortunately for them, they still have their fate in their own hands. However, they face a herculean task ahead as they will have to play two of their remaining three games without their talisman David Warner.

The southpaw will fly back home after the game against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Monday. With both teams locked on 10 points from 11 games, a win will give either some breathing space ahead of their final two matches. Sunrisers have already lost Jonny Bairstow due to international duty and missing Warner will be a big blow especially as their other batsmen have failed to deliver consistently so far.

Kane Williamson has not looked in great touch while the middle-order is yet to deliver and the Sunrisers will have a major task at hand once Warner departs. The left-hander will leave Indian for Australia’s World Cup preparations alongside Steven Smith and Marcus Stoinis. Warner has been Sunrisers’ batting mainstay so far. Since his comeback from ball tampering ban, Warner has scored 611 runs in the tournament so far and is the current ‘Orange Cap’ holder. On Saturday, he also became only the second player to score 600-plus runs in three consecutive seasons.

Warner and Bairstow had formed a formidable partnership for the Sunrisers. Bairstow is still the second highest run-scorer this season, having scored 445 runs.  In all the five games that they have won this season, Warner-Bairstow combination worked wonders. While Warner and Bairstow played their parts to perfection, the middle-order and death bowling has failed to deliver so far.
