DD vs SRH Star Wars: Rishabh Pant vs Siddarth Kaul

A genuine Indian rivalry is on the cards and a battle between the two will surely decide who will have the last laugh, in the IPL at least.

Delhi Daredevils, post Gautam Gambhir's dramatic resignation as captain, has found some momentum in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), wining two of its four matches since then.

The team, however, still sits at the bottom of the IPL table and needs to win all its four remaining group games to make a dash for the playoffs.

As it takes on the miserly Sunrisers Hyderabad at its won den, the team will look to Rishabh Pant to deliver the goods. His tussle with SRH fast bowler Siddarth Kaul, who has recently found a berth in India's limited-overs squad to England, will pose an interesting battle.

Pant, the team's top scorer this season, is also the sixth highest run-grosser this term and a big-scoring effort in the game can make him a genuine contender for the Orange Cap, reserved for the IPL's top scorer. However, it won't be an easy task against a SRH bowling attack, which has repeatedly restricted opponents to paltry totals. Kaul, also in contention for the Purple Cap, has already picked 13 wickets, bowling at a miserly economy rate of 7.05.
