During the toss, it was revealed that hard-hitting batsman Abdul Samad is not part of the SRH playing 11 for this SRH vs MI IPL 2023 match on Tuesday. Interestingly, the Jammu & Kashmir batter is present in the list of five substitute members out of which one can be used as an Impact Player at any moment in the encounter. Samad smashed an unbeaten 21 runs off 10 balls against Lucknow Super Giants and also scored 32 runs in the game against Rajasthan Royals where he was used as an Impact Player. In this match against Mumbai Indians, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have included both Abhishek Sharma and Washington Sundar in their side.

“We are gonna bowl first. Wicket looks slightly drier, hopefully it gets better with the dew and we restrict them to a chaseable total. Not in the 16 (no changes). We’ll see how conditions play and adjust from there. Our fielding needs to improve. We let ourselves down slightly in the previous games. (Playing spin) We are improving game by game. There’s great spin attacks throughout the comp and if you’re not up to the mark, they are gonna put a lot of pressure on you. It’s about guys exploring options, finding options that are comfortable to them and it’s about trusting that out in the middle,” said Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Aiden Markram during the toss.

Abdul Samad IPL 2023 Price

The Sunrisers Hyderabad took a surprising decision when they retained Abdul Samad ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction. In his IPL career, Samad has shown incredible performance, amassing 226 runs from 25 games with an impressive strike-rate of over 142. Despite his remarkable statistics, the 21-year-old cricketer was limited to playing only 2 games for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2022. However, Sunrisers Hyderabad still retained his services for IPL 2023.
