Chennai: Sunrisers Hyderabad would bank on their famed foreign recruits to come good when they take on the formidable Chennai Super Kings in their opening match of the IPL here today.
The visitors will have to put up an inspiring effort to down Super Kings, who kick started their campaign with a one-run win over Delhi Daredevils here on Thursday.
Led by aggressive Australian opener David Warner, Sunrisers would be relying mostly on foreigners to deliver the goods, given the scarcity of local stars in their ranks.
Shikhar Dhawan is the lone Indian batting star in the line-up and a lot would be expected of him after his impressive run in the World Cup Down Under.
