Players Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) might release ahead of IPL 2023: The Sun group backed Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) endured one more disappointing season in the Indian Premier League (IPL). From being one of the favourites to confirm the playoff place to languishing in the eighth position in the points table at the end of the Tata IPL 2022 league phase, SRH saw an unjustified collapse.

SRH began their Tata IPL 2022 campaign on a poor note with two consecutive losses initially. However, the franchise picked its right playing xi in the third game itself and started climbing up in the points table with victories on the trot. SRH notched up five wins from the next five matches and became a team to beat in the tournament.

But, it was too soon for everyone to judge the difficulties of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Suddenly SRH lost track after the seventh match and began losing games on the trot. Their five matches winning streak converted to a five-match losing streak and the franchise found itself once again amidst a horrible mash.

The 2016 IPL champions could only manage to win six matches in 14 league stage matches of the Tata IPL 2022 and finished eighth in the league stage.

Despite losing matches on the trot, a few players kept performing consistently throughout the tournament while a few players had a disappointing season as they couldn’t justify their role and price tag.

This article will take a look at Players Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) might release ahead of the IPL 2023 who haven’t performed well in the Tata IPL 2022.

Players Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) might release ahead of the IPL 2023:

Kane Williamson:

Though this name comes with several feelings and emotions, we must admit Kane Williamson hasn’t done justice to his role in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). 

The SRH skipper only managed to score 216 runs from 13 matches in the Tata IPL 2022 at a poor average of 19.64. He looked like a pale shadow of himself in the tournament which required fantastic efforts from the skipper.

SRH bagged the services of Kane Williamson ahead of the Tata IPL 2022 by spending a whopping sum of INR 14 Crores. The franchise can release him from the squad and then subsequently purchase him at a much lower price in the auctions.

Glenn Phillips:

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) didn’t use the services of Glenn Phillips even once in the entire Tata IPL 2022. The kiwi middle-order batter was unavailable for the initial few matches from the tournament due to Covid related issues.

Notably, Phillips has played three matches in the IPL before for Rajasthan Royals where he managed to amass just 20 runs at a dismal average of 13.

It would be impossible for SRH to fit in Glenn Phillips in the playing xi whilst the presence of Kane Williamson, Aiden Markram, Nicholas Pooran and Marco Jansen. The four mentioned players have been a regular feature for SRH in the IPL 2022.

Due to the upper cap placed in the selection of overseas players, SRH won’t be able to fit Glenn Phillips in the playing xi.
