The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) side has endured an abysmal campaign in the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The ‘Orange Army’ has won just 2 out of the 12 matches that it has played, and is placed at the last spot in the points table.

And, Carlos Brathwaite has opened up on the performance of the Sunrisers Hyderabad outfit. Brathwaite stated that youngsters like Umran Malik have made an impression and from here on, it is a huge opportunity for the youngsters to prove themselves.

Brathwaite also added that some of these youngsters can also force the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) franchise to use the Right to Match Card (RTM) on them in the 2022 mega auctions as well.

“Impression made by younger players. You have Umran Malik come in and everyone all of a sudden has come wow, where has this guy been, bowling that 140 kmph consistently, and it is a big opportunity for younger players to make a name for themselves and force SRH to use the Right to Match Card for them and look at a bigger role for the franchise,” said Brathwaite in a chat with ESPNCricinfo.

Carlos Brathwaite names the players SRH might retain ahead of the 2022 mega auction

Carlos Brathwaite also opened up on the players that the ‘Orange Army’ might retain ahead of the 2022 IPL mega auctions. Brathwaite stated that Kane Williamson will be retained if the SRH side wants him to be the skipper. The West Indian also opined that Rashid Khan will also be retained.

Brathwaite added that he wants Jason Holder to be retained by the franchise as well. The 33-year-old also added that a complete overhaul might also be on the cards ahead of IPL 2022 for the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) side.

“Also, Kane Williamson would SRH want him to captain if they do, there is one, then Rashid Khan is a certainty. I certainly want Jason Holder to be a part of the mix as well.

Having been a part of the franchise, one thing that the franchise has missed for a number of years is an all-rounder and Jason Holder has done an admirable job with both bat and ball. He has also been an international captain for a number of years. An overhaul might be on the cards, but how SRH goes about that overhaul will be interesting to see,” concluded Brathwaite.
