Sunrisers Hyderabad, who lie at the bottom of the league table, clash with the Delhi Daredevils in Match 12 of Pepsi IPL 2014.

SRH have problems to fix on both batting and bowling fronts. The batsmen have failed to get enough runs, managing only 133 and 121 in their two outings. In fact, against Kings XI Punjab, it was all-round failure as the bowlers too came in for plenty of stick and conceded 193 runs.

Delhi Daredevils too have problems of their own; they have only one win from three outings - that win too coming in a nervy run-chase against the Kolkata Knight Riders. The team comes into this match after a disastrous outing against the Chennai Super Kings, when they were dismissed for their third-lowest score in the IPL - 84.

Kevin Pietersen is likely to take the field for the first time this season and his presence will certainly bolster the side. Not only is he a proven match-winner, he also has plenty of experience under his belt and one can expect his positivity to rub off on his teammates.

The top three in the SRH batting line-up need to come good if the team is to compete with the rest of the field. Shikhar Dhawan, Aaron Finch and David Warner are the most experienced and most reputed batsmen in the line-up. Yet, they have only managed to score a combined 100 runs thus far in the competition - at a strike-rate of 96. SRH need a lot more from them - and they need to start pulling their weight around right away.

Kevin Pietersen is undoubtedly the biggest superstar in the Delhi Daredevils line-up. Expect him to come out all guns blazing. In Dinesh Karthik, JP Duminy and Ross Taylor, they have enough ammunition down the order, but the top order needs to start getting runs as well, and Pietersen could be the answer to the problems at the top.

Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kings XI Punjab: One hopes the first thing Tom Moody would have told his wards in the pre-match team meeting is to maintain discipline on the field. The best fielder in the team - David Warner - grassed a Glenn Maxwell skier when he was on 11. Darren Sammy should have had the wicket of Maxwell on 62 as well, had he not overstepped the popping crease. It would not be wrong to say that those two opportunities cost SRH the match. Moody will also ask his top three - who have together faced 104 balls in two matches out of a possible total of 240 deliveries - to assume more responsibility and bat more sensibly, especially given there isn't too much firepower in the batting order. SRH will also need to work on their bowling strategies; just having the world's most feared bowler in their ranks will not help. Dhawan needs to use him wisely too. Against KXIP, Dale Steyn did not get to bowl at Maxwell until the Australian was well into his 70s.

Delhi Daredevils v Chennai Super Kings: DD have lost a total of eight wickets in the powerplay overs in their three matches so far this season - including three wickets in their previous outing. Coach Gary Kirsten will be trying to instill in his wards the importance of keeping wickets.

Sunrisers Hyderabad won both their matches against the Delhi Daredevils in Pepsi IPL 2013. In the first meeting at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Dale Steyn and co. restricted DD to 114/8 and got home in the final over of the run chase. In the following match, SRH decimated DD by dismissing them for 80 and romped to a six-wicket win in the 14th over.

If Pieterson plays then he seals the game
