SRH Playing 11: The Sunrisers Hyderabad will play their 9th fixture in the Indian Premier League 2021 against Punjab Kings. They have secured only 1 win in their 8 league matches and this will be a must-win game for them to stay alive in the tournament.
In their last league match, they could only 134 runs on the board, and had an average start to the innings, with David Warner getting dismissed early, and Wriddhiman Saha and Kane Williamson not playing with a good strike-rate to accelerate the innings. Then, after their dismissal, Abdul Samad and Rashid Khan were impressive to help the team in posting a respectable total in the 1st half. Then, the bowlers proved to be ineffective and could not induce enough wickets of the opposition.
Sunrisers have had a disastrous season and they will not be able to make it to the playoffs. They will likely go for a few changes, which might give a chance to the players, who have not got a game yet. Warner’s form has been a matter of concern for the franchise, since the start and they could give him one more game or bring in Jason Roy in place of him or even Holder can let him in.
The bowling has also been average and has not been able to induce wickets, and Siddharth Kaul can come in place of Sandeep Sharma.

1. Kane Williamson
Possibly the best pick for this match, Kane Williamson has been one the best cricketers across all the formats of the game. His ability to stabilize and play aggressive shots, when the situation requires is the main highlight of his success. In 5 matches in the 2021 season, he has scored 146 runs at an average of 73.
2. Rashid Khan
The Afghanistan spinner will look to help the team with his terrific execution of stock deliveries and variations. He has been a consistent wicket-taker in all the T20 leagues, and can be your vice-captain pick. In 8 matches in IPL 2021, he has scalped 11 wickets and will be the backbone of the bowling attack.
3. Wriddhiman Saha
The opener of the Sunrisers Hyderabad has been a fine contributor for the team. He has the ability to provide good starts to the team and if given a chance in the middle-order, he can provide contributions in that batting position as well. In 127 IPL matches, Saha has scored 2007 runs at an average of 25.06.
4. Manish Pandey
The first Indian player to hit a century in the Indian Premier League is one of the most crucial players for the SRH team. He has been kept quiet in the last 2 matches, but has enough capabilities to make a comeback and has been impressive in the Phase 1. In 6 matches, Manish has accumulated 210 runs at an average of 42.
