With his analyst hat, former Indian opener Akash Chopra is back this time with his expert advice for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Chopra has chosen the players to either retain the RTM card or use it to save SRH in the IPL 2021 auction. A mega auction is proposed before IPL 2021, and several significant changes can be seen in the table of various franchises. He also said that SRH should return with the same fighting spirit as he displayed in the 2021 edition.
He made his comments on the YouTube channel and said that the youth of the Orange Army should add a little more contribution from their ends. The likes of Priyam Garg, Abdul Samad, and Abhishek Sharma should find important things for the team. He said that the Orange Army cannot get a backup plan for Ekka Dukka Bhuvaneshwar Kumar as he does not have any open slots for foreign players.
“They cannot backup for Bhuvi. They may not even get a foreign bowler because their foreign players have done well, and you can play only four of them. Jason Holder and Rashid Khan have performed well. They have not played the prophet, Billy Stanlake was sitting outside. So there is not much scope for change. “
Talking about retaining the players, Chopra added that captain David warner, And star spinner Rashid Khan should be retained at any cost. Also, franchisees should use their RTMs on Bhubaneswar and T Natarajan.
