IPL 2022: The now-cancelled fourteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) turned out to be a tragic outing for the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The franchise had to go with multiple ups and downs throughout the seven games they played. SRH remained at the bottom of the points table with a mere one win which came against Punjab Kings (PBKS).
The former champions of the IPL have always relied on the Indian bowlers and overseas batters however it’s high time when they need to change their plans. The coming IPL 2022 Mega Auction will be a key opportunity for SRH to revamp the ravaged squad and bring in a couple of new faces with good abilities.
Here in this article, we will take a look at 3 retention choices for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
3 Players Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) might retain ahead of IPL 2022 Mega Auction:
The Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan is still ‘the best’ spinner in international cricket. He is the only player for SRH to perform in all the IPL seasons. The opposition tends to play his four overs softly without giving away wickets to Rashid Khan and tries to put pressure on the other bowlers.
In 69 IPL games, Khan has scalped 85 wickets. However, he will require support from the other end to bring out his best. SRH will be keen on retaining him for the coming years.
The senior Indian pacer, Bhuvneshwar Kumar looked out of the form in the IPL 2021 despite having served the Indian team exceptionally well against England in his comeback games. He is always amongst wickets and his form is synonymous with SRH’s performance with the ball.
It will be a good choice to retain him in the coming auction to take his services, as the pacer has a lot to offer. Bhuvneshwar Kumar has picked 139 wickets in 126 games in the elite Indian tournament.
The 31-years old Cricketer hasn’t had the best of times this season. Although, he played some good knocks for SRH in Vivo IPL 2021, but his death over strike rate will be a concern for him and his franchise.
Despite having an average season, Manish Pandey produced one of the best knocks for SRH in IPL 2021. He can easily provide his services in the middle order and play some outstanding knocks and win games. It will be a good option to retain him in the coming auction.
