Steve Smith has also not been much effective this season, but Jos Butler has been batting brilliantly at any position he has been offered. Riyan Parag and Rahul Tewatia performed their role perfectly in the lower middle order and even won a match for the team.
Jofra Archer has been bowling brilliantly at a very good pace and picking up wickets consistently in every match. He has been accompanied by the young talent Kartik Tyagi who has been very impressive this season.

Sunrisers are struggling very much this season as they are currently at the 7th position on the points table with 3 wins and 6 losses and a total of 6 points.
They have lost three consecutive matches, and their chances of qualifying for playoffs are looking bleak. Williamson’s injured himself in the last match, and the middle-order, which was looking a little better, would crumble again if he cannot play further matches. David Warner has played decently but has not been able to hit big shots.
Jonny Bairstow played few matches brilliantly and struggled to score runs in the remaining matches, and the same has been the case with Manish Pandey at No.3. Priyam Garg, except for one match, hasn’t been able to score much. Abhishek Sharma and Abdul Samad haven’t got a fair chance to prove themselves.
In the absence of Bhuvi, Natarajan has been bowling very well and picking up wickets in the death overs. Sandeep Sharma and Khaleel Ahamed have been expensive this season but also managed to pick up wickets.
From the past couple of matches, Rashid Khan hasn’t been able to pick up wickets, which were among the main reasons for SRH losses. To qualify for playoffs, SRH needs to win every match from here, and that won’t be easy for them with the way they have been playing.
- Jonny Bairstow and David Warner will open the innings for SRH.
- The middle-order players will comprise of Manish Pandey and Priyam Garg.
- All-rounders Vijay Shankar and Jason Holder will look after the lower middle order.
- Rashid Khan and Abdul Samad will be the spin attack of the team.
- The team’s core pace attack will consist of Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed/Basil Thampi, and T Natarajan.
