SRH Top Picks

It has been a disastrous Indian Premier League 2021 campaign for the Sunrisers Hyderabad as they have won only two matches and suffered 11 convincing losses. Most importantly, it has been their batsmen who have been struggling with bad form on consistent and it is surely high time that the likes of Kane Williamson, Wriddhiman Saha and Jason Roy step up to take some sort of responsibility in the batting department. On the other hand, Jason Holder, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan will hold the key with the ball.

Rashid Khan

Sunrisers Hyderabad premier leg-spinner Rashid Khan has been in a stunning form this season picking wickets at regular intervals for his team. He has taken a total of 16 wickets at an impressive economy rate. Also, the Afghan leg-spinner has stood up for his team in the difficult situations.

Name Matches Wickets Average
Rashid Khan 13 16 20.94

Jason Holder

For the Sunrisers Hyderabad, all-rounder Jason Holder delivered a superb performance both with the bat and ball in the last game against Punjab Kings. Holder first picked up the prized scalps of KL Rahul, Deepak Hooda and Mayank Aggarwal with the ball giving away just 19 runs in his quota of four overs. He then clobbered an amazing unbeaten cameo of 47 runs off just 29 balls that included a total of 5 sixes. He will be eyeing to continue his all-round work.
