Sunrisers Hyderabad’s 3 reasons behind the woeful season in IPL 2021. This is a woeful IPL season for Sunrisers Hyderabad. It is nothing that seems to be working for them. They had to bench David Warner from the team midway through the season. Eventually, he was removed from the squad. Hyderabad made a plethora of changes to other personnel as well. But nothing could stop their slide this season.
Hyderabad has won 2 and they currently desire the 8th spot in the table. SRH looks like a team left with no motivation to put in their best performances. Their middle order is fragile, no bowler barring Rashid Khan has been able to make a mark. There is no depth on the bench.

Sunrisers Hyderabad’s 3 reasons behind the woeful season
No experience in the middle order #1
Sunrisers Hyderabad needed people to stand up. Also, bail them out in the middle order. However, it will never transpire and the team management finally grew. Also, tired of the failures of Manish Pandey and Kedar Jadhav. Their failures paved the way for Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, and Abhishek Sharma. Unfortunately for Hyderabad, they too failed with the bat.
No penetration with the ball #2
Rashid Khan remains to be the match-winner for his side. But he did not find any consistent support from the other end. Bhuvneshwar Kumar did not pick up wickets in the powerplay overs or at the death. Sandeep Sharma and Siddarth Kaul need penetration.
No settled opening combination #3
Warner was a shade of his productive best this season. They had to be axed as captain from the side. Jonny Bairstow was the spark Sunrisers Hyderabad had in the first leg. But he decided to remove from the continuation in Dubai. It left SRH in a real muddle in IPL 2021.
