Another SRH player who couldn’t replicate his domestic success for the Hyderabad based franchise, but this time from Baroda. While Hooda’s string of low scores could be ignored had Manish fired but the latter’s consistent failures have brought Hooda’s string of scores into the limelight as well. Hooda has been a part of SRH for a long time now and the management has shown enough faith in him.
The 24-year old’s inability to score big despite good starts hasn’t really helped the team and Hooda could manage only 30 runs in the 2 games he played in the second week of IPL, registering scores of 10 & 20. If the team management insists on persisting with Manish for a bit longer, one can expect Abhishek Sharma or Sreevats Goswami coming in as a specialist batsman in place of the Baroda all-rounder. The Sunrisers need to take a quick decision on Hooda’s status and in CT’s opinion, Hooda should be axed from the squad for the time being.
