Manish Pandey Should Take a Break..!!
Sunrisers Hyderabad slipped to their worst-ever start in an IPL season after losing their first three matches of the new season. The criticism on Manish Pandey continues to increase with every passing match that the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) side plays.
Manish Pandey played below average knocks and runs are coming off hard and fast from his bat. Last night against Mumbai Indians he failed to impress once again. In his stay in the middle that lasted 7 deliveries, the SRH batsman managed to score just 2 runs. “Manish Pandey should take a break for couple of days” is Pragyan Ojha’s opinion.
Pragyan Ojha Has Offered His Opinion Regarding Pandey’s Form. Manish Pandey Should Take a Break
Pragyan Ojha said Manish Pandey has not been delivering despite the trust shown in him by the Sunrisers Hyderabad team management in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 and a couple of games break can work in his favour.
Adding that Sunrisers might benefit if they bring in former Chennai Super Kings player Kedar Jadhav, Ojha said: “You need someone like Kedar Jadhav. If you see that middle-order, it did not carry forward the hard work done by David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. For someone like Manish Pandey, it will be good for him if he gets a couple of games break. At times, it really helps.
Ojha thinks that Kedar Jadhav can also be an additional bowling option for David Warner. Kedar Jadhav has also played a handful of matches for Chennai Super Kings at Chidambaram Stadium.
“Maybe they can look in for Kedar Jadhav who can deliver because I think they have a few more games in Chennai. He can deliver some handy off-spin and give some stability in the batting,” he added.
“No. 3, it is a very crucial position. He has to deliver. Match after match, the pressure mounts. People who are watching can make out that Manish Pandey is not delivering. At times, it is important that you take a backseat, take a couple of games break and then think about your game. When you’re playing continuously and you’re not doing well, you might not know what is happening and what is not. You need to take a pause,” Ojha added.
New Zealand Captain and one of the finest player Kane Williamson is yet to play in this year’s campaign. However, Warner said on Saturday that the senior batsman is close to regaining full fitness. SRH will look to open their account in the new season when they take on Punjab Kings in Chennai on Wednesday.
