Sunrisers Hyderabad did not have a lot money to spend in the IPL 2021 mini-auction. Whatever they had, they tried to utilize. But they had a serious concern which remained unaddressed.
Sunrisers Hyderabad boast of some high-profile names in the batting order like David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, and Kane Williamson along with India’s Manish Pandey and Wriddhiman Saha. But the Hyderabad side had the target of fixing instability in the middle-order. They roped in Kedar Jadhav and the senior Indian batsman can provide the much-required stability. Sunrisers Hyderabad got Mujeeb Ur Rahman which means Mujeeb will be bowling alongside Rashid Khan. This can certainly something exciting to be on plate for the IPL fans. Sunrisers Hyderabad already had two Afghanistan cricketers in team in Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan. Mujeeb is the third addition from the neighbouring country. However, the Hyderabad based franchise was in need of an overseas fast bowler. They failed to acquire one and have to manage with the one they have for the time being.
