IPL 2021: 3 Reasons why Sunrisers Hyderabad lost against Rajasthan Royals
Here are the 3 reasons why the Sunrisers Hyderabad lost against Rajasthan Royals today.
On the doubleheader Sunday’s second match between the Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Rajasthan Royals, the Sunrisers Hyderabad continued their poor performance yet again.
Here are the 3 main reasons that led to the Sunrisers Hyderabad loss against Rajasthan Royals:
1. Sloppy fielding efforts.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad failed miserably on the field today resulting in the loss of many runs leading to high scoring innings for Rajasthan Royals batsmen, players like Joss Butler made full use of the Hyderbad’s failing fielders as they scored numerous boundaries across the line, constant mid-fielding by Hyderabad fielders led to an increasing number of runs being taken both by running and scoring boundaries.
2. Dead Middle-order in batting.
Hyderabad’s middle-order batsmen have been failing to deliver continuously as the pressure on them mounts up every time. With the season becoming tough every day, these batsmen have been under immense pressure to perform at times when it’s needed, but Kedhar Jadhav and Vijay Shankar’s slow performance during the match that expected aggressive and hard-hitting caused the run rate to fall and mount more pressure on the next batsmen on the crease, Hyderabad’s middle order has been failing to perform since the start of the season. These players need to gear up soon and take responsibilities seriously as the team expects more from them.
3. Jason Roy and David Warner’s substitution.
Substitution of high-scoring batsmen like David Warner who have been on the race to become the orange cap holders of the season played out against Hyderabad as their opening order failed to deliver in a match that wanted them the most. Jason Roy’s substitution also impacted the batting order as the team struggled to find a batsman who stood strong on the crease and score well for the team, players like David Warner and Jason Roy are always needed for the team as these players have skills and consistency that are required for fast-paced T20 form of cricketing.
Failing batsmen and underperforming bowlers with inactive fielders coupled with bad decisions were some of the reasons why Sunrisers Hyderabad lost today against Rajasthan Royals.
