Mumbai, April 27: Former England cricketer Nick Knight is looking forward to the IPL match between Gujarat Titans and Sunrisers Hyderabad as it will be a competition between two quality bowling teams.
This season the IPL is getting more exciting as both sides look for a threatening touch thanks to their sensational bowling attack and Knight is hoping it will be a huge contest when the two teams get in the middle for the second leg in the match. from today. .
“Both teams batting units are doing well when you feel like the bowlers are going to dominate (the game). The other thing you would look at would be the toss, Kane Williamson has won 7 pitches in a row and if he wins this time he will also decide to play bowling first, understandably,” Knight said on Cricket Live on Star Sports.
“If Hardik Pandya wins the toss then it will be a defining moment. So let’s see how it plays out, but either way it should be a great game. The game is better when there is rhythm and a good bowling drive involved,” he said.
Former Indian cricketer Piyush Chawla also agreed with Nick Knight and stated that we will witness a good game of cricket when two bowling powerhouses meet.
“As Nick mentioned, it’s going to be a good game because both teams don’t rely heavily on their hitting. They rely heavily on their bowling. When you rely on your bowling, you always have fun.” Chawla said.
Mohammad Kaif praised T. Natarajan’s form and how he has developed bowling skills during the period. Also, he talked about how challenging it can be for hitters in the game.
“Natarajan is a big challenge for Hardik Pandya because he discovered 2-3 new bowling types that make the ball swing both inside and out. He is the king of the yorkers but Natarajan looks different this year with the changes and the new things he has discovered. It also needs to change because if you keep doing the same thing, the batsman will start predicting you. This time he didn’t throw to Yorker, but he did swing the ball from the front and throw clean to Gaikwad. It’ll be a great battle between Hardik Pandya and Natarajan because both players are fit,” Kaif said on the Star Sports episode of Game Plan.
