Sunday, funday! Double-Header day again. In the first game, Hyderabad take on Kolkata. Both teams have had rather similar fortunes so far. Hyderabad come into this game after back-to-back losses, to Rajasthan and Chennai respectively, both morale-sapping. The situation is not much different in the Kolkata camp - 2 losses on the trot, to Bangalore and Mumbai, thumping ones in fact. Change of captaincy has not had an immediate effect for Kolkata and neither for the batting fortunes of Karthik. For Hyderabad, the middle-order muddle continues. The struggles are very palpable when the top 3 do not click. So, near similar situations in both camps, a different set of problems begetting each. Both would look to cash in on each other’s lack of momentum. Hyderabad, more, as they are 2 points less than Kolkata. Interesting to see who will have their say in this.
