Notably, Sunrisers Hyderabad retained Kane Williamson with a lot of hope and expectations, but the Kiwi batter has not lived up to those at all. Prior to this match, he had scored only 208 runs in 12 matches, at an average of 18.90 and an even poor strike rate of 92.85.

What is even more concerning for Williamson and the Sunrisers Hyderabad fans is his current run of form. In the three innings before this match, he had scored only 13 runs – failing to get into double figures in all of those matches.

Hence, the skipper tried something new in the clash against MI. He named young Indian batter Priyam Garg in the team and sent him to open the innings alongside Abhishek Sharma. Even when Sharma was dismissed in the third over by Daniel Sams, Williamson did not come to bad and sent Rahul Tripathi ahead of him instead. Previously, Punjab Kings’ skipper Mayank Agarwal had done the same thing – demoting himself to from the opening position to a middle-order role, given his own lack of form.
