Sunrisers' middle-order need to complement early starts given by Warner-Dhawan: Tom Moody

Hyderabad, May 2: Sunrisers Hyderabad's coach Tom Moody said his middle-order batsmen will have to capitalise on the early starts given by David Warner and Shikhar Dhawan to turn their fortunes in the ongoing IPL cricket tournament.

"We certainly hope that that is going to turn around. We need to complement the confidence both David (Warner) and Shikhar (Dhawan) give," he told reporters ahead of his team's match against Chennai Super Kings.

With Sunrisers Hyderabad's captain David Warner and star batsman Shikhar Dhawan giving impressive starts to the team, it's the middle order which has failed to put enough runs on the board.

"We know that we need to spring a few wins," Moody said.

Replying to a query on the batting line-up, the former Australian all-rounder said that the team is constantly looking to find the right combination that can deliver the goods in the ongoing tournament.

Observing that the team has played its home matches in Visakhapatnam so far, the coach said he is looking forward to the games in Hyderabad.

"Looking forward to playing here. Great ground and it looks like a good wicket," he said.

The home side held a practice session under flood lights at the Rajiv Gandhi International cricket stadium here. The CSK team did not practice.
