3 players SRH might release ahead of IPL 2024
The Sunrisers Hyderabad have not been able to work as a consistent force in the IPL for quite some time. Post the mega auction, they managed to assemble a decent team but their bowling, which was known for its consistency, lost its touch.
With the addition of numerous batting stars, it looked like the Sunrisers would manage to get into the playoffs in the 2023 season. But, things turned out to be different as for most of the season, their batters failed to fire on all cylinders.
Come the 2024 season, the team management will be hoping that the players manage to bring out their best. A team that has a great mixture of youth and experience, SRH has the potential of being an unstoppable force. However, there will be a bunch of players who will have to bid adieu to the franchise to fix the shortcomings in the current setup.
Here are the top three players that SRH might release ahead of the 2024 season:
3. Akeal Hosein
Akeal Hosein came into the international cricket frame in 2021. The talented bowler was a part of the Champions League as a bowler with the Barbados Tridents. Adding on, the spinner was drafted into the Sunrisers squad in the 2023 season.
In 121 games, Hosein has picked 99 wickets with an impressive economy rate of 6.74 runs per over. Speaking of his T20I career, he has played 39 matches and picked 31 wickets with a best of 4/30. An economy rate of 7.22 runs per over shows that Hosein has been on point when it comes to handling the pressure of a T20 game.
He has been a decent contributor with the bat as well as he has the highest score of 44 and can swing the bat in the lower order when required. But, SRH has not been able to utilise him properly and it seems like they will release the all-rounder to make some space in their team.
