Former Indian smasher Virender Sehwag chose Rahul Tripathi is the main performer for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the franchise’s remaining 2022 IPL matches. Sehwag said that the player in form will need to perform well at least two-thirds of Hyderabad’s last matches.
Even as Hyderabad blasted hot and cold in IPL 2022, the 31-year-old Tripathi remains their standout performer. In 11 games, he made 308 runs with an average of 38.50 and a strike rate of 164.71.
Tripathi is expected to make a good comeback when Hyderabad take on inconsistent Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium in Pune on Saturday, May 14. Preview of Match on Cricbuzz, Sehwag talked about the importance of Tripathi and commented:
“Whether the team does well or not, it’s important for the players to perform well. The group tries to make them feel comfortable so that they can continue to perform at the same level. The more consistent performances Rahul Tripathi continues to give, the better for the Sunrisers. In fact, SRH will need Rahul Tripathi to keep scoring. He scored in a couple of innings but the team couldn’t win. But he will have to shoot in at least two of the remaining three games if the franchise is to do well. So this match is also important for Hyderabad and Tripathi. ”
Tripathi was the lone ranger with the bat in Hyderabad’s chase against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their previous IPL 2022 match. He scored 58 points out of 37 as SRH succumbed to 125 points in the 193-score chase.
“SRH will stick to Umran Malik” – RP Singh
After a sensational 5 against the Gujarat Titans (GT), Hyderabad’s fast pitcher Umran Malik has failed to land a single hit in the last three matches and has also looked expensive. However, according to former Indian athlete RP Singh, the franchise will stick with a young pace.
When asked if he has seen any changes to Hyderabad’s bowling game, Singh said:
“SRH will stick to Umran Malik. If appropriate, Washington Sundar could replace J Suchith. Ta Natarajan can replace Kartik Tyagi. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is one of their best bowlers and is picking up the pace after a long time. He looks perfectly fit and moves the ball both ways. Haven’t seen any other changes in bowling. ”
Hyderabad is seventh on the IPL 2022 scoreboard, with 10 points from 11 matches. They have lost the last 4 matches in a row.
