After being knocked out of contention, Sunrisers Hyderabad have opted to give opportunities to their fringe players in the final few games of the season. Senior players like David Warner, Manish Pandey have been relegated to the bench to give opportunities to the likes of Priyam Garg and Abhishek Sharma, and the move worked after they ended Royal Challengers Bangalore’s hopes of finishing in the top two last time out.

SRH will again be looking to do so on Friday when they take on defending champions Mumbai Indians. Kane Williamson has a quality bowling attack at his disposal and Umran Malik is the latest addition to the potent pace bowling quartet, which could give any side trouble. Jason Roy has been in top form at the top of the order, while Kane Williamson, Jason Holder and Rashid Khan will make up for the four overseas slots.

  • Abhishek Sharma featured at the top of the order for SRH last time around, and the left-hander should be handed another opportunity on Friday.
  • Wriddhiman Saha shored up the middle order and expect the wicketkeeper to hold on to his role.
  • Jason Holder, Sharma and Abdul Samad will take up the all-rounder’s role, while Jason Roy and Kane Williamson will have the responsibility of scoring the bulk of the runs.
  • Umran Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Siddharth Kaul will continue to play, meaning the likes of Khaleel Ahmed, Sandeep Sharma and Basil Thampi will have to warm the bench.

 

SRH Playing XI: Jason Roy, Abhishek Sharma, Kane Williamson, Priyam Garg, Wriddhiman Saha, Abdul Samad, Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, Sidharth Kaul, Umran Malik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
