Dasgupta takes in that a team cannot perform. If the atmosphere in the dressing room is not right. Also, no matter how good the players are. He believes SRH won’t be looking forward to retaining many players. They would instead look to usher them into a transition period. Moreover, with a new pool of players from the auction.
“It was quite clear from the first leg that things were not right. In any franchise, if the captain is changed mid-way through the season, and your main player is dropped, that means something is wrong in the dressing room,” Dasgupta said.
The good thing about SRH is that this is their one-off season, they have been pretty consistent but now there have to be some changes in the franchise. They might not have too many players that they would want to retain. Several players are past their prime and the youngsters did not develop as well,” Dasgupta added.
