CLT20 2013 Match 12: SRH vs Titans Scorecard
Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Titans Live Score of CL20 2013, 12th Match Group B played at JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi on September 28th 2013.
Henry Davids, the Titans skipper, opted to bowl in their Champions League Twenty20 Group B game against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the JSCA International Stadium in Ranchi on an overcast Saturday (September 28).
Both teams are desperately looking for a victory to stay in touch with Chennai Super Kings, the table toppers who defeated Hyderabad in their last match by 12 runs. “We were very happy with the way we batted in that game chasing a big total,” said Shikhar Dhawan, the Hyderabad captain. “We reached 190, and we would like to do much the same today too.”
Dhawan said he would have preferred to bowl as well. “But I don’t think the pitch will change much in character. We have to be watchful for the first couple of overs, and then we can start to play our strokes.”
Hyderabad made one change to the team that lost to Chennai, leaving out Ashish Reddy and bringing back Biplab Samantray. Darren Sammy, who sustained a toe injury in the last game, was fully fit, Dhawan revealed.
The Titans, who edged Brisbane Heat by four runs in their last match in Mohali on September 24, were up for the challenge, said Davids. “There is a bit of cloud cover, so we will look for early wickets to restrict them and put them under pressure,” said the Titans skipper. “It’s a very good wicket, we would like to restrict them to a modest total. We need to assess the situation very quickly. The ball travels a bit here, I think 160 or thereabouts is a gettable target.”
