We expect a tight contest between these two sides tonight. As per pitch report it’s going to be high scoring encounter in Hyderabad with pitch being flat and dry with a tinge of grass to hold it together. It tends to get slow in death overs so we think slower ones and yorkers are going to benefit a lot. We think Sunrisers are going to nick this one. What do you think? Let us know ur thoughts below.
