SRH vs Playing XI vs RR: Will Kane Williamson drop David Warner again? Jason Roy, Mohammad Nabi wait for chance
Kane Williamson was appointed captain midway through Phase 1, while David Warner was sacked and dropped following a poor run of form. The fourth-month break came at the right time for the franchise as they looked for a fresh start, but that did not happen with Warner continuing to struggle this time around. With Jason Roy waiting in the wings, Warner is likely to be on the chopping block yet again, in what has been a forgettable IPL for the Australian southpaw.
Probable XI: Jason Roy, Wriddhiman Saha, Kane Williamson, Manish Pandey, Jason Holder, Kedar Jadhav, Abdul Samad, Rashid Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Sandeep Sharma, Khaleel Ahmed.
SRH vs Playing XI vs RR: What other options does Kane Williamson possess?
SRH have been hit hard by player unavailability, with T Natarajan and Vijay Shankar in isolation following the former’s COVID-19 positive test. Sherfane Rutherford, who was signed as a replacement, also left the bio-bubble after the death of his father. Jason Roy and Mohammed Nabi are the top available options, while the likes of Abhishek Sharma, Virat Sigh and Priyamm Garg also preset themselves as options. Either of the young trio should get a game instead of Kedar Jadhav, who has largely struggled in the middle.
SRH vs Playing XI vs RR: David Warner has been synonymous with SRH over the years, but a dismal performance this season could very well mark his last with the Orange Army. With the mega auctions set to happen before the next season, the Australian could very well be shown the exit door, marking the end of his legacy with the Hyderabad franchise.
