IPL 2021: Sunrisers Hyderabad lost their third consecutive match in the IPL 2021. SRH middle-order shredded after getting the good start from the openers. On the other side, Left Arm Pacer T Natrajan one of the main bowlers of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) was not part of playing 11 against Mumbai Indians last night.
After losing the match, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s angry fans and Twitterati started to troll them on Twitter. Fans also questioned about the absence of T Natarajan. SRH mentor VVS Laxman revealed after the game against Mumbai Indians that T Natarajan had a niggle in his left knee which kept him from featuring.
VVS Laxman said, “Unfortunately, Natarajan had a niggle in his left knee and that’s why he was ruled out and that’s why we went with Khaleel Ahmed who is also a left-arm seamer.
.We are going to assess the condition of Natarajan and I am sure the medical staff of the Sunrisers will take the right decision which will be beneficial for him and the franchise.”
SRH captain David Warner announced 4 changes against Mumbai Indians with T Natarajan’s exclusion being the most surprising.
Sorry to say, but anyone that picks Abhishek Sharma, Virat Singh and Abdul Samad all together in one playing XI does not deserve to win.

On the other side, VVS Laxman was impressed with Khaleel Ahmed’s performance He said, “I was very impressed with the way he bowled. In his first game of the season, he assessed the conditions really well and used a lot of his variations along with extracting a lot of paces and bounce off the surface. So a lot of positives [to take] for SRH from the way Khaleel Ahmed bowled.”
