VVS Laxman confident about Sunrisers Hyderabad

In the last couple of editions, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have not played up to their potential and have been a disappointing outfit. However, this time, around, at the auction table, the Sunrisers’ management made some smart decisions and with just a day to go for the league to commence, their side looks extremely strong. The Sunrisers are extremely balanced with their batting and bowling departments looking quite strong.

VVS Laxman, mentor of the Sunrisers Hyderabad admitted that he was quite confident about his side’s performance in the upcoming edition of the IPL. “I’m quite confident about the fortunes of Sunrisers this year,” said Laxman. “The reason for that is the quality of players we’ve got in our squad. Everyone should go out and play their natural game. Look at Virat Kohli and Joe Root,” said Laxman.

“If you see the percentage of sixes they hit, it will much less be compared to Chris Gayle. But if you see their strike rate, it will be on a par with Gayle. If every individual knows his strength and plays with it without compromising, they’ll be successful. T20 is all about expressing yourself and playing without any insecurity. We’ve got players who can do jobs not only to their strengths but also to suit the team’s requirements,” Laxman explained.

The likes of Yuvraj Singh, Ashish Nehra, and Mustafizur Rahman, who have been recent additions to the side, will definitely strengthen the unit. Skipper David Warner too stressed on the fact that his side was extremely balanced. “We’ve got a lot of talent, a lot of potential,” said Warner. “With the balance we have, there won’t be any excuse this year. I look forward to the season. Everything’s going good and we’re looking in the right direction. Boys have been preparing well. We’ve got a struggle to pick the team to go on the park come the first game,” he said.

Warner was also full of praise for the veteran Ashish Nehra, who has been a great package for India in the recent months. “I’ve played with Nehra before in Delhi. The way he’s proved himself in the last 12-18 months has been fantastic to himself and for India. The way he’s come back and is looking after himself, he knows what he needs to get it right to play at the highest level. In the Australian series, the way he started and finished was fantastic. It’s a great bonus and a plus for us.”
