Srikkanth Recalls Watching World Cup Match With Modi

Ahead of their match against Rajasthan Royals tomorrow at the Sardar Patel Stadium here, Sunrisers Hyderabad mentor Kris Srikkanth recalled his memories of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

"It's good to be back in Ahmedabad after a long time. Earlier in 2011, I was here to the watch World Cup quarter final between India and Australia. That was a crucial match for India and I watched it with the Gujarat chief minister and now BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi," Srikkanth told reporters today.

"India won that crucial match back then in this stadium. Now, we will be playing against Royals tomorrow. I believe that this ground will prove lucky for us once again. We will also play our best to win the game," said Srikanth, who practiced with Hyderabad players during the evening.

Apart from believing in the "lucky charm" of the Motera ground, Srikanth is also banking on home ground advantage for forthcoming matches of the Hyderabad team during this Indian Premier League.

"We will do our best to be one of the top four teams. We still have four games to played at our home ground in Hyderabad. Thus, our team will have home advantage for those games," said Srikanth, adding that he was impressed by the performance of Hyderabad bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rajasthan Royals spinner Pravin Tambe.
