SRH has played two matches so far in the Indian Premier League 2020 and lost both matches. While other hand, players injury are giving them a massive setback. Sunrisers Hyderabad might suffer yet another big injury blow as their star man Manish Pandey walked off the field clutching his legs during the clash against Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday.
“Not sure (when asked about Manish Pandey’s injury), hopefully, bit of a cramp,” SRH captain David Warner said after the match.
Sunrisers Hyderabad has already missed the services of Australian all-Rounder Mitchell Marsh. Now in-form batsman Manish Pandey is also suffering form bit of a cramp. During the 14th over of the match, he left the field holding the back side of his legs and it’s looked that he had suffered a hamstring injury.
“I think I got my decision right. For us, our strength is death bowling. I thought it was actually a difficult wicket to accelerate on. The Kolkata boys showed us that if you can keep wickets at the end, that’s what wins you games. I don’t regret what I did at the beginning of the game and I stick by my decision. Patty Cummins, as he does, (bowled) Test match line and length. There was a little bit of movement here and there. All in all, it got harder through the middle.”
“We went four or five overs for 20 and coming back with three wickets in hand at the end probably killed us a little bit there. An extra 30 or 40 runs would have been great. We have to try and go harder at the top. Can’t help if the bowlers are bowling good lines and lengths. We need to push as hard as we can. You can see from our running between the wickets, we do do that. But, we got to improve our boundary percentage. I saw, I think 35 dot balls, which not acceptable in T20 cricket on a wicket that was actually nice to bat on. We just mis-executed in the middle.”David Warner added.
