IPL 2021: 3 things that went wrong for SRH

SRH started their IPL campaign on a loosing note against SRH.

Match No. 3 of IPL 2021 pitted two arch-rivals against each other. Sunrisers Hyderabad squared off against Kolkata Knight Riders. Two bitter enemies, who go hand-in-hand with each other almost all the time.

This time around, KKR clinched an edge against SRH. KKR beat SRH by 10 runs to start their campaign on a sweet note. There were a lot of controversial decisions by SRH which made them succumb to a first match loss and here are the 3 things that went wrong for SRH:

 

1. Bowling units inability to take Wickets in middle-overs

A strong opening partnership between Rana and Gill and then another great 1st wicket partnership for KKR between Tripathi and Rana were the early reasons why KKR edged SRH. Hyderabad’s strength has always been their bowling unit and their inability to grab wickets in the middle-overs added up to their reasons for the loss.

 

2. Heavily dependent on Warner and Bairstow

Fortunately, SRH has got Warner on their side, and unfortunately, too they’ve got Warner. Fortunate, because Warner’s ability to single-handedly steer innings from start to end is known to all and unfortunate cause, damn, on his performance, SRH heavily relies upon which isn’t good.

They’ve got Bairstow as well and if it wasn’t for Bairstow and Pandey, they could’ve lost the match pretty badly. Their Indian talents need to step up ASAP.

 

3. Decision to send Nabi before Samad.

Samad, a heavy hitter, showed his power by smashing CUMMINS two fantastic hits and then even hitting Russell in the last over. Although he wasn’t able to get SRH through the winning line but needs to trust this young lad from JAMMU. If he had walked in before NABI, you never know, we might have seen a different result. So SRH needs to prioritize their batting positions from the ext match and trust hitters like Samad.
