IPL 2022: “Just accept that performances aren’t happening, stop being adamant”- RP Singh reckons SRH should consider dropping Kane Williamson

Former Indian cricketer RP Singh thinks it’s time for SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) to make a bold decision about captain Kane Williamson’s place in the current squad.

Williamson has struggled this season, scoring just 208 runs in 12 games with a poor strike rate of just 92.86. He hasn’t been able to take advantage of his powers and Singh felt it might be time to find an alternative to the SunRisers captain.

Kane Williamson is playing as badly as I have ever seen any top hitter play, he is becoming so responsible for the team that the best he can do is get out.#KKRvSRH

Speaking to Cricbuzz, RP Singh explained why SRH needed to be ‘professional’ in deciding Williamson’s place on the team. He say:

“It’s a good thought (for Williamson to be a popular athlete) but another thought is that he could also be dropped from the typical squad. How long are you going to carry him? He’s also a fortune. professional cricketer. Just accept that performances are not happening.”

The 36-year-old also talked about Rahul Tripathi opening the ball against Abhishek Sharma. He added:

“Even though Kane Williamson is a great human being and a good captain, they are messing up a batting position. You just have to stop being tough and let Rahul Tripathi open with Abhishek Sharma.”

Kane Williamson is snappy, SRH needs to adjust: Pragyan Ojha

Former Indian left-hander Pragyan Ojha agrees with RP Singh that Kane Williamson should not open for the SunRisers. Ojha believes Williamson has the ability to adapt his game to fit the middle order. Regarding this, he stated:

“Kane Williamson is known for his versatility. He’s been talked about a lot due to the fact that he can hit anywhere in midfield. So whatever little chance they have they can hit it. get in the qualifiers, they need to adjust this, otherwise the result will be the same.”

Ojha also pointed out that SRH, despite winning five games in a row, doesn’t have enough confidence in their bowling lineup. He added:

“They (SRH) changed their entire bowling lineup after just one day off. When a bowler has a day off, it’s understandable. But when an entire bowling attack has a day off, it’s understandable. off day, they should still be supported because these are the pitchers that got you back in the league. So this is why I feel like the team management got it a bit wrong.”

SRH will really need to put their A-game on the board if they are to win the last two games and have a chance of making it to the knockout stages. They will play against the Mumbai Indians later tonight (May 17).
