Chennai: The Sunrisers Hyderabad team has suffered its third consecutive defeat in IPL 2021. The Hyderabad team has lost to Kolkata, Bangalore and Mumbai. Former Indian cricketer and commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has told why the Hyderabad team lost three matches in a row.
Manjrekar explained the major reason for Hyderabad’s defeat
Sanjay Manjrekar has questioned the team selection of Sunrisers Hyderabad. Sanjay Manjrekar revealed on Twitter the biggest reason for Hyderabad’s defeat, writing, ‘I would like to apologize, but when you put players like Abhishek Sharma, Virat Singh and Abdul Samad together in your playing XI, that team will win. Does not deserve. ‘
Sorry to say, but anyone that picks Abhishek Sharma, Virat Singh and Abdul Samad all together in one playing XI does not deserve to win.

Hyderabad’s middle order is proving hollow
Let me tell you that the performance of Abhishek Sharma, Virat Singh and Abdul Samad has been very bad for Sunrisers Hyderabad.
In the match against Mumbai Indians, Virat Singh scored 11 runs from 12 balls. Abhishek scored 2 runs. Abdul Samad was out after scoring 7 runs. The middle order of Hyderabad is proving to be completely hollow. The lack of Kane Williamson is clear. Hyderabad have to play the next match against Punjab Kings on 21 April. This match will also be played at the MA Chidambaram ground in Chennai.
Mumbai defeated Hyderabad
After the aggressive innings of Rohit Sharma and Kieron Pollard, the bowling performance of the bowlers saw Mumbai Indians beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 13 runs to register their second consecutive win. After Mumbai Indians scored 150 for five in 20 overs, the Sunrisers were all out for 137 runs in 19.4 overs. This is Sunrisers third consecutive defeat. After losing two consecutive matches, Sunrisers Hyderabad made four changes in this match and reposed confidence on young players like Virat Singh, Abhishek Sharma, Khalil Ahmed and Mujib ur Rehman.
