Sunrisers Hyderabad need one batsman like KS Bharat in the IPL 2021 auction

Sunrisers Hyderabad IP
In Sunrisers Hyderabad squad, they need a competent wicketkeeper-batsman who can do both with the gloves and bat decently if they decide to bench Jonny Bairstow and Wriddhiman Saha is unavailable. As Jason Holder, Rashid Khan, and David Warner were filled in their other three overseas slots in form, Hyderabad also faced the dilemma of choosing one between Kane Williamson and Bairstow.

Bairstow gets an advantage over Kane in such situations, as he can also perform a keeper's duties. At the same time, other keeper Saha had performed beautifully for SRH in IPL 2020 but had succumbed towards the end to an injury that had caused the team significant problems. Thus, the Orange Army will be keen to add to their squad a capable wicketkeeper-batsman this time.

As KS Bharat has a good understanding of the conditions in Hyderabad and has respectable numbers to his name in domestic cricket, someone like him could come in handy for Hyderabad. Bharat has featured in 48 T20 fixtures so far, scoring 730 runs at an average of 17.8.
