The Grand Stand View

Fresh from their worst ever recorded league finish last season; the SunRisers have added some fire power to their arsenal and have quietly kept themselves in with a shot at the Play-Offs after an indifferent start to the 2015 campaign, where they seemed to be Jekyll & Hyde with their performances and team selections at times. They say it’s less about how you start and more about how you finfish in a competition like the IPL, the Orange Army seem to be playing some of their most consistent and competitive cricket on the final stretch and they would be wise to cash in on that good form in their remaining 3 matches and make their game in hand count as they seek to improve on that record 4th place finish of theirs. It promises to be a close run race in this year’s chase for Play-Off slots with 6 out of the 8 franchises still vying for the prestigious and potentially lucrative latter stages and the Champions League places on offer.
