Cricket News: Sunrisers Hyderabad, the defending IPL champions, are putting in long hours in the gym as they prepare for the start of the IPL season in 2021. While they did not have the finest start to the season in India, they must hope that they can turn things around now that they have a fresh start.
The SRH players were part of a new fielding workout to improve their fielding skills, and they were actually competing against the support personnel. While cricket logic would have lead fans and observers to expect that the players would win, this was not the case, as the support staff members proved to be up to the task and defeated the current generation of SRH players in the drill.
The video was captioned, “Winner Winner Chicken Dinner?” by SRH. In the fielding drill, guess who came out on top and got the chicken meal #OrangeArmy #OrangeOrNothing.”
Here’s the video:

The fielding drill’s regulations are also explained in the video. To begin, teams would have to hit each stump in order, starting with the tallest and working their way down to the shortest. The stumps will be hit once by each team. You receive another try if you successfully hit the stumps. The side that hits all of the stumps and the ruby ball first wins.
As a result, the competition was won by the support personnel.
When it comes to the Orange Army, they are now ranked 8th in the points table, with only one win to their credit. They even replaced David Warner as captain with Kane Williamson. Jonny Bairstow withdrew out of the second part of the IPL 2021 season, dealing them a major blow ahead of the season’s restart.
Sherfane Rutherford of the West Indies was later announced as Bairstow’s substitute. In a tweet, SRH claimed, “The explosive Caribbean is now a Riser.” Rutherford has been in outstanding form in the Caribbean Premier League, scoring three half-centuries so far this season. The Orange Army will be hoping that he continues in a similar manner at the top of the squad’s order so that he can take over for someone like Baistow, who had previously done a similar job for the team.
