Rapid starts are Mayank Agarwal's forte. His penchant for hitting the ball on the up and through the line makes for exciting viewing, but if the opposition is smart and keeps a steady back of a length outside off, he tends to orchestrate his own downfall.
He has been typecast as a new-ball specialist but Bhuvneshwar Kumar has displayed admirable tenacity in the final overs. He's hit the yorkers, he's sneaked in a few slower balls and stifled the batsmen for room and in the process has gone six an over or under so far.
Facing a depleted attack in an afternoon match forms the best opportunity for Sunrisers Hyderabad to post first points. The top three, for all their repute, have been shoddy and the support acts lower down have found recovery out of their depth. There is an argument for spreading Shikhar Dhawan, Aaron Finch and David Warner along the batting order especially considering the Dubai track has played tricks with the batsmen's timing. None of them are as potent outside the opening position, but an experienced hand to guide the latter half of the innings is vital considering wickets have usually tumbled in clumps here.
Delhi Daredevils recorded their lowest total of 80 against Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2013
David Warner's T20 strike-rate falls from 142.57 while opening to 121.22 for Nos. 3-7
