IPL 2016, Match 40, Pick of the tweets: Rising Pune Supergiants vs Sunrisers Hyderabad at Visakhapatnam

History of Indian Premier League (IPL) has seen teams qualify for play-offs with 14 point and at this moment that is what Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) can hope. However, even to reach to the 14-point mark, the struggling RPS side will have to win all their remaining matches. What does not help their case is the fact that they are up against an upbeat Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), who have been winning game and if they win tonight, they will move to the No. 1 spot in the points table.

For SRH, captain David Warner has led from the front and now it seems even the other batters have begun responding. Yuvraj Singh’s comeback has strengthened the middle-order further. Apart from Warner, SRH’s strength lies in their bowling attack. The experience of Ashish Nehra, the consistency of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and wiliness of Mustafizur Rahman has done the trick for them. Also, Barinder Sran has chipped in well.

On the other hand, RPS have thoroughly struggled. Injuries to key players have hampered their progress. They lost the likes of Kevin Pietersen, Steve Smith and Mitchell Marsh to injuries and their bowling has also struggled. However, some decisions by the experienced MS Dhoni have baffled many. Ashwin has underused his best bowler Ravichandran Ashwin and Irfan Pathan, who was the best player in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, got only game in the tournament where he bowled just an over.

Warner called it right at the toss and changing the trend, he elected to bat. As always we bring you the live updates and the best tweets for this crucial IPL game.

RPS need 37 from 3 overs!
