After struggling to find the right momentum, the David Warner-led side improved its stock in the recent matches and it now stands at fourth position in the points table following its six-run victory over Delhi Daredevils in Raipur on Saturday. The weak area for Sunrisers has been their middle-order, which was expected to complement the effort of its swashbuckling openers, Warner and Shikhar Dhawan.

KXIP’s doomed campaign has witnessed them win just two of the 11 matches they have prepared. The team’s big names like Australian troika — Glenn Maxwell, George Bailey and Mitchell Johnson — have failed in unison. Their Indian brigade comprising Virender Sehwag, Murali Vijay, Manan Vohra, Wriddhiman Saha have also failed to give a good account of themselves. The team has failed to play to its potential this year after reaching the final last year. But they will look to play for pride and bow out of the competition by winning their remaining three matches.
