The 15th season of IPL has not started well for Sunrisers Hyderabad, who performed poorly in IPL 2021. The team has made many changes in its team for the ongoing season. The franchise has not only dropped the players but has also made changes in the coaching staff. SRH signed Dale Steyn, Brian Lara, Hemang Badani and Simon Katich for the season.
While Katich decided to step down ahead of the season, other coaches remain part of the Orange Army. Playing a new season under Kane Williamson, SRH did not start well. Because the team suffered a massive 61-run defeat against Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday (29 March).
In the initial matches of IPL 15, many teams got big scores while chasing the target. But Hyderabad team failed to chase down the target of 211 runs set by Rajasthan Royals in their very first match thus becoming the first team to lose a game while chasing the target.
Giving his verdict on SRH’s prospects, their former mentor Kris Srikkanth made a big prediction and said that there are early signs of them finishing in the last two on the points table.
A great outing for @rajasthanroyals , All around super performance and looks like a top 4 contendor! Terrible for #SRH team composition, depth in all departments is lacking, early signs of a last 2 contender for them #SRHvRR

Sunrisers Hyderabad team last won the trophy in 2016, after which the team’s performance has not been very good. However, he has played only one game in the season and will hope to prove his critics wrong going forward.
These 5 Indian domestic players shone from the beginning of IPL 2022, will they be able to make a place in Team India?
