IPL 2021: Does Sunrisers Hyderabad still have a chance?

To be honest Sunrisers Hyderabad has no chance to qualify for the playoffs. They are placed at the bottom of the table with just one win out of a total of 8 games. Sunrisers Hyderabad resumed their campaign against Delhi Capitals and lost to them in a one-sided game. Just before the start of the campaign, they have got a big blow that T Natarajan tested positive for the COVID19.

Sunrisers' owner disappointed of the team's performance

Sunrisers Hyderabad has a good bowling unit. They have got the most dangerous spinner in the world, Rashid Khan. They have got world-class pace bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jason Holder. Bowling has not been the issue for Sunrisers but the batsmen. Jonny Bairstow pulled out of the second leg of IPL made things worse for Sunrisers, he was their top run-getter in the first leg. David warner’s poor performance and lack of support for skipper Kane Williamson troubling SRH.

But most importantly the poor performance of Indian batsmen is the reason why Sunrisers Hyderabad is struggling. Experienced Manish Pandey disappointed the most. If their Indian players don’t perform well I don’t think Sunrisers Hyderabad stand any chance to qualify. They must at least win 6 out of their remaining 6 matches. With strong teams like Royal Challengers Bangalore, Mumbai Indians, and Kolkata Knight Riders fighting for qualification it’s going to be very tough for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

With low chances for SRH they can trouble the campaigns of Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Royal Challengers Bangalore. It has been a disastrous season for Sunrisers. However, the skipper Kane Williamson trust they still have a chance to qualify for the playoffs. Sunrisers Hyderabad have seen the worst now and they don’t have anything to lose from now and this nothing to lose attitude is very dangerous.


The chances of Sunrisers Hyderabad qualifying for playoffs are very much low. They must win all of their remaining games, which is almost impossible but you never know it’s IPL. The players and franchise must be waiting for next year’s mega auction and next season. If Sunrisers’ Indian batsmen play well, then this team is strong enough to trouble other team’s campaigns. Things will only get better for SRH and they might expect to finish this season on a better note.
