SRH batters are sleeping pills – Virender Sehwag

Former Indian batter Virender Sehwag has a habit of taking on the poor performers in any form of cricket. He recently mocked Sunrisers Hyderabad for their slow batting against Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2021.

Playing against KKR at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, the team led by Kane Williamson scored just 115 runs from 20 overs. None of the SRH batters could touch the 30-run mark.

“Hyderabad started with Roy and Saha but the two returned to the dugout in quick succession. After this, Williamson and Garg handled the innings a bit. But it was such a slow wicket and runs were being scored at such a slow pace that even on the TV screen, a message popped up – ‘Sorry for the Interruption.’ Williamson scored 26 runs and Garg made 21.”

“After this, Abdul Samad came and he hit three sixes. But after scoring 25 runs, he too got out. The rest of the batters were acting as sleeping pills and I fell asleep in the last four overs. When I woke up, I found that Hyderabad scored 115/8 in 20 overs,” he added.

Kolkata Knight Riders won the match easily as defending 115 runs was impossible. Sunrisers Hyderabad have won just two matches in the league so far and will surely finish last in the league.
