A lot goes on during the long practice sessions in the nets between players. One such interesting incident happened in the SunRisers Hyderabad(SRH) camp. SRH teammates Umran Malik and Nicholas Pooran had some fun banter concerning a bet during a recent practice session ahead of their opening clash in IPL 2022. The West Indies Keeper-batter Pooran challenged Malik to bowl a yorker and offered to buy him dinner if he was successful in the quest. The speedster would have to do the same if he failed to deliver a yorker. The 22-year-old Jammu Kashmir pacer went on to bowl a length delivery, which meant he lost the bet.
The SRH franchise gave fans a peek at it by capturing the banter on camera and then sharing it on their official Twitter & Instagram handles.
“I think the SRH are going to be at the bottom of points table”- Brad Hogg
The former Australian spinner has given a bold statement regarding SRH standings in the IPL points table. Brad Hogg predicted that Sunrisers Hyderabad might end up at the bottom of the IPL points table in 2022. He backed it up by pointing out that the 2016 IPL champions are devoid of a core of quality Indian players in both the bowling and batting departments. Due to this, they now have to heavily count on the overseas batters to do the heavy lifting.
In a video on his YouTube channel, Hogg analysed the Hyderabad squad and said:
“I think SRH are going to be at the bottom of the points table. I don’t think they have enough depth in their Indian bowling department and Indian batters. So they will rely heavily on their overseas batters and their local Indian bowlers. If you have an injury, it’s curtains for Sunrisers Hyderabad.”
Sunrisers Hyderabad will face Rajasthan Royals tomorrow in their first match of IPL 2022 at the MCA Stadium in Pune.
