3. Terrible Top Order Players
There is enough firepower in the ranks—Mayank Agarwal, Rahul Tripathi, Harry Brook—but these players haven’t yet made an impact. Against LSG, Sunrisers preferred to start Anmolpreet Singh and bench Sharma. They could use this strategy again and allow Rahul Tripathi and Mayank Agarwal the freedom to pursue bowling immediately.
The middle order has depth and skill in Brook and Markram, so the openers shouldn’t fall behind. Washington Sundar has improved as a batter, and he ought to be used much better in the games to come. Abdul Samad is in fine form and may serve as the team’s designated finisher.
