Sunrisers Hyderabad finished this season’s IPL at the eighth position after winning six out of 14 matches. SRH skipper Kane Williamson couldn’t lead the franchise into the playoffs for the last two years. Even as a batter, Williamson managed to score only 216 runs in 13 matches at an average of 19.63. SRH did not start the season on a good note, losing two consecutive matches. After that, they had a great winning run of five matches in the mid-season and then, they faced five defeats in a row.
Despite such a bad season, some players came up as bright spots for the franchise. Players like Umran Malik and Abhishek Sharma made headlines with their stellar performances throughout the tournament. However, there are some players who failed to showcase their full potential. It cost a playoff spot to the team and hence, SRH might look to release such players ahead of the next season.
Here is a list of 3 such players that SRH might release going into the next IPL
1. Sean Abbott
SRH bought this 30-year old Australian pacer in the mega IPL auction at a final price of INR 2.40 crore. Sean Abbott has experience of playing in the BBL and the IPL when it comes to franchise cricket. However, he has hardly got any chances to unleash his full potential in the IPL.
SRH gave him just one match where he failed to contribute with his bowling skill. Abbott picked up only one wicket by conceding 47 runs in four overs at an economy of 11.75. Even, he failed to contribute with the bat as he scored only seven runs.
Lack of opportunity showed that SRH was not happy with him and thus, they might release him. It will vacate a place for an overseas player and SRH can rope in a better all-rounder for the future. It will provide support to the existing bowling line-up comprising Umran Malik and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
