Today, Sunrisers Hyderabad will play against Mumbai Indians in Mumbai. In this season of IPL, SRH is highly depended on David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. But now both have left the team for the preparation of world cup 2019. So SRH needs to find a replacement of David Warner. Warner is the highest run-getter in IPL 2019 so far with 692 runs.
Before the Mumbai match, SRH coach Tom Moody was attending a press conference and revealed the players who will replace David Warner for Mumbai’s game.
Tom Moody said
“David has had a remarkable series. 692 runs in 12 games is something he should be very proud of. The bottom line from our point of view is how it affects the team and creates an opportunity. We were faced with the same situation last season. We did not have David Warner. We played the final (against eventual champions Chennai Super Kings). We saw Kane Williamson last season had a remarkable season himself. So, we are going to miss David. But I look at the positive sides. What it does is, gives us an opportunity as a side to play as well differently with different personnel. We have got a few options. Of course, Guptill is the obvious one. Being a world-class opener himself, he is a like-for-like replacement. But we are also looking at someone like a Billy Stanlake at a venue like this.”
Tom Moody also reveals that how can they stop inform Hardik Pandya he said, “There are a number of players playing in the tournament like Hardik. They are impact players. The bottom line is you need to remove them, and you need to get them out because if they spend time in the middle, they are going to hurt you. We have our plans set for the likes of Hardik,”
