Bengaluru: Hyderabad Sunrisers’ coach Tom Moody was a picture of composure ahead of his side’s fourth away game against Royal Challengers Bangalore, despite having lost all their matches on the road this season. “I’m not overly concerned. In Mumbai, we had to field first with very heavy dew – a significant disadvantage. In Kolkata — we didn’t have the rub of the green with some decisions. We should have won in Pune but MS Dhoni got in our way,” the Australian said.

“There’s no massive flaw in what we’re doing away from home. We look forward to chalking up a win here. We’ve got some recent fond memories at this venue and hopefully we can walk away with the same,” the 51-year-old claimed. On the back of RCB’s harrowing loss at the hands of Kolkata Knight Riders, facing them now represents SRH’s best chance at breaking the hoodoo. Moody was cautious nonetheless.  “I think there’s no doubt they boast some of the game’s most destructive players. You’d be a fool to think that you could turn up tomorrow night and get a repeat of what happened in Kolkata. We certainly are paying no attention to what happened up there.”

 

While some have questioned the efforts of the lower-middle order in backing up the top-order spine of the team, Moody was handed a late boost in Yuvraj Singh, who will be available against RCB.
