Playing their second match against Lucknow Supergiants, Sunrisers Hyderabad still failed to get their first win. With the magic of Lucknow spinners, Hyderabad batsmen scored only 121 runs and lost the match by 5 wickets in the hands of the opponent. A player bought by the franchise at a particularly expensive price, not scoring runs in both the matches became a big headache for Hyderabad.
Yes, Sunrisers Hyderabad franchise bought England’s destructive batsman Harry Brook for Rs 13.25 crore in the mini auction before the start of IPL. But Brooke, who came to the team after getting an expensive price, is facing failure in batting.
Harry Brook scored just 3 runs off 4 balls against Lucknow Supergiants. Even against Rajasthan Royals before that he managed only 13 runs. Including these two matches, he could not even stay at the crease for half an hour.
Brooke, who originally entered the IPL auction with a base price of 1 crore 50 lakh, was bought by the franchise at Rs. Bought for 13.25 crores. Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals have also tried hard to sign Brook.
But finally Brooke owns Hyderabad. There is a reason for Hyderabad Brook to pay so much in this order. Prior to the IPL, Brooke scored a century and 3 fifties in the 2 Test series against New Zealand. Also, Brooke excelled against South Africa and Pakistan. As a result, the Orange Army franchise had high hopes for Brooke and paid heavily for him.
But soon after coming to IPL, Brooke’s bat was silent. He is also unable to stand at the crease. If Brook plays like this in the upcoming matches, it will be difficult for him to play for Hyderabad in the coming seasons. In the same order, the Hyderabad team will not be able to excel. Batters and bowlers are not able to perform as expected. The Sunrisers team will once again play at the Hyderabad venue tomorrow. Orange Army will face Punjab Kings tomorrow night at 7.30 PM. And we have to wait and see whether the Rs.13.25 crore player Harry Brook will perform in this match.
