Bottom-placed Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) drop young English sensation, Harry Brook following his back-to-back dismal outings in the ongoing IPL 2023 against Rajasthan Royals (RR). Kiwi batter Glenn Phillips joins the setup against the Men in Pink, at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, in Jaipur, on Sunday, May 7.

During the toss, the Sunrisers' skipper, Aiden Markram, named a couple of changes against the Royals as Mayank Agarwal, Umran Malik, and Brook were dropped from the XI for the clash. Notably, Brook's exclusion from the setup has grabbed headlines as the batter has failed to live up to his massive price tag.

The English star batter was roped in for a whopping INR 13.25 crore in the IPL mini-auction in December. Brook clobbered an unconquered century against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) which featured as many as 12 boundaries and three sixes at a stunning strike rate of 181.81.

Just when it seemed like the batter convincingly cemented his position in the XI, Brook returned a string of low scores in the last five outings following his blistering ton. In addition to this, he failed to open his tally and registered two ducks on the trot against KKR and DC in the last two matches. In doing so, the Hyderabad think tank decided to confine him to the sidelines in the match against Sanju Samson’s Royals.

The 24-year-old Southpaw has collected a paltry 163 runs in his nine appearances at an underwhelming average of 20.38. With this, SRH decided to field Glenn Phillips, who donned the orange outfit for the first time in the ongoing season.

Phillips joined the XI on the back of an impressive First-Class season with Otago in the recently concluded Plunket Shield. The explosive hitter slammed 347 runs in the three matches for the side in the competition. The batter will be gunning to create a lasting impression in the IPL and help his side get ahead in the remainder of the group matches. Apart from Brook’s exclusion, SRH handed a debut to 23-year-old Jammu all-rounder, Vivrant Sharma, who replaces Mayank Agarwal.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the exclusion of Harry Brook against RR-

Harry Brook dropped by SRH 😮 I love the lad and I think he’s going to be an absolute great in all format but he really has had an unexpectedly poor debut IPL. I’m sure he’ll come back stronger for it #IPL #RRvSRH

Dear Harry Brook, In this part of the world, you don’t insult fans. Ask Sachin, They even threw stones at his home when he was termed God. Fans here know black magic. They can impose failure on you! Thanks!

Ante Sundaraniki!!!@nameisAj8
We went into the auction with 43C and got Harry Brook and Mayank for 22 C just within 15 mins of the auction and after 9 games into the season they both did not find a place in the playing 11. Sums up how you failed miserably in the auction @SunRisers #SRH #SRHvsRR

I said this before Glenn Phillips is better for SRH ahead of Harry Brook 👍 twitter.com/manvendra_sah/…
#SunrisersHyderabad is making a mistake by benching Glenn Phillips over Harry Brook. He is just a Pakistani basher and long format player. Glenn Phillips has done great in T20Is and CPL. Forget price SRH team management see quality of player. #IPL2O23 #sugesstion
