Mujeeb addition to the team
Indian Premier League 2021 is about to start and all the franchises are set to begin the season with a bang with their best players. Sunrisers Hyderabad has put in a lot of thought this time into choosing its bowlers and Mujeeb addition to the team the director of Sunrisers Hyderabad recently explained why the franchise did so.
Mujeeb’s inclusion will keep others on their toes
SRH has secured Mujeeb Ur Rahman, the splendid Afghanistan spinner and Tom Moody, Director of Cricket of Sunrisers Hyderabad explained the reason behind that. Tom said that the bowler has been chosen keeping in mind the overseas perspective and also because Rahman is a highly effective bowler. The player has proved his competence time and again, playing for franchises and also for his country. Rahman’s addition would bring depth to SRH’s bowling attack and would keep the other players in the team on their toes, according to Moody. This new addition would bring a sense of competition in the team wherein teammates would try their best to stay in the playing XI.
Two spinners in the team
Ideally, SRH did not need another spinner as Rashid Khan was already a part of this franchise. Mujeeb addition to the team this new addition caused a buzz amongst the fans and experts. Predictions say that Rashid will keep leading the bowling attack for the team while Rahman would be used in a few matches by the franchise.
This purchase makes more sense looking at the venues of the IPL. SRH is scheduled to play a total of 9 matches in Chennai and Delhi wherein the pitches are spinner friendly. SRH might decide to play 2 spinners and this purchase must be the beginning of that step.
It is the fourth IPL for Mujeeb Ur Rahman. He has already proved himself in the 2018 IPL season by taking 14 wickets. He had played in 11 matches. His IPL career boasts of 17 matches and 18 wickets. He was a part of Kings XI Punjab which is known as Punjab Kings now. The franchise did not make much use of the skillset of this bowler and he got to play only 2 matches.
