Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra in his recent Youtube video has previewed the UAE leg of Sunrisers Hyderabad. The side is placed last in the points table at the moment with just one win from their first seven games. They need to win almost all their remaining games to make it to the final four of this IPL season. They have some tough games at the very start against teams like Mumbai Indians, CSK and RCB.
Aakash Chopra has said that SRH skipper Kane Williamson will be expected to deliver in the absence of Jonny Bairstow. Bairstow and Chris Woakes are the two England players who have pulled out of the UAE leg citing personal reasons.
“Looking at the positives, SRH made it to the playoffs the last time the event was held in the UAE. Jason Holder, one again, will be a key player. Kane Williamson always rises to the occasion. He will be expected to deliver again. I think Warner will also enjoy the conditions in the UAE and Rashid Khan is, once again, going to be sensational” said Chopra.
Speaking about their qualification chances, Aakash Chopra said that Hyderabad will not be able to make it to the final four. He said had they won three matches, there was still a possibility. Winning all seven games as per the former Indian batsman will be difficult for the franchise.

“They should do reasonably well but I don’t think they will qualify for the playoffs. They won only one of their seven matches in the first half. Had they won at least three, they could have had an outside chance,” Chopra explained.
SRH resume their campaign against Delhi Capitals on September 22. They then play Punjab and Rajasthan. Their final four games are against tough oppositions like CSK, KKR, Mumbai Indians and RCB all of whom are at the above SRH in the points table.
