He also praised Rahul Tripathi’s form.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) have regained a good momentum with three consecutive victories in IPL 2022, and are ranked seventh in the points table. Currently, they are playing their sixth league match of the tournament against Punjab Kings (PBKS). Former Indian cricketer turned commentator Nikhil Chopra spoke about their bowling unit and also gave his thoughts on some of SRH’s hitters.
Chopra felt that SRH had the best bowling offense, with quality bowlers present for every game situation. He was impressed with the performances of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Marco Jansen on the power play overs. Chopra felt that Natarajan is the most consistent player to hit Yorkers in world cricket and is the death specialist. Besides, he also claimed that Umran Malik was the find of the season with his fast pace and aggressive bowling.
“Both are very good and efficient, from the first on himself, Bhuvi moves the ball and Marco Jansen was able to do something with the new ball due to his exposure to test cricket. Jansen’s lengths have created doubts in the minds of the batsmen, and that’s what he wants.
“Natarajan is the death over-specialist and has certainly been the most consistent bowler to take on the death yorkers, and has been phenomenal. With them, Umran Malik is also there, who is the find of this season. Overall they have a quality bowling attack,” said Nikhil Chopra on Sky247.net presents ‘Not Just Cricket Show’ on CricTracker.
Rahul Tripathi is the glue that binds SRH’s batting order: Nikhil Chopra
Chopra felt that Rahul TripathiThe last innings of (71 from 37 balls) against KKR were great and took the pressure off the team in the middle overs thanks to their fast innings in the tournament. He thinks the SRH are still struggling to get points in overs on the power play. In the end, he said most fans and cricket pundits write SRH but the team fought back well to get three wins under their belt.
“Tripathi’s last innings were amazing, and I’m glad he was able to get those kind of runs. He’s literally the glue that binds the entire batting order together and scored runs at a strike rate They are still not able to score enough points on the power play, and Abhishek and Williamson did not contribute enough in the last game. But, the team found their way back, fought back and crawled on the way back,” Chopra added.
