SRH Playing 11: In their penultimate fixture of the IPL 2021, Sunrisers Hyderabad will lock horns against Royal Challengers Bangalore. They are already out of the contention of playoffs, and will look to play fearless cricket.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad could not win their last league match against Kolkata Knight Riders team. The openers, Jason Roy and Wriddhiman Saha failed to provide a good start to the team, and were dismissed early. Then Williamson and Priyam Garg stitched a fine partnership, but count not accelerate enough to push the run rate of the team. Then Abdul Samad was the saving grace for the team with his 3 lusty blows to take team to 115 runs. The bowlers tried hard but could not defend the score, and Holder, Rashid and Siddarth Kaul were the wicket takers.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad could not play well in this season and has a disastrous first half as well as the second half. The batters have lacked intent and confidence to take on the opposition bowlers, and the inexperienced middle order have done the rest damage.While the bowlers, who have a good track record in the T20 format, have not been able to induce wickets, and need to perform better.
The team’s Playing 11 for this fixture is expected to have 1 change. The left handed batsman Abhishek Sharma can make way for another southpaw from Jharkhand, Virat Singh, who has been a fine performer in the domestic cricket.
