Reviewing the match on Cricbuzz, Sehwag talked about the importance of Tripathi and observed: “Whether the team is doing well or not, it gives importance to players who perform well.

“The team tries to make them comfortable so that they can keep performing at the same level. The more consistent performances Rahul Tripathi keeps giving, the better for Sunrisers.

“In fact, SRH will need Rahul Tripathi to keep scoring runs. He scored runs in a few innings but the team couldn’t win. But he will have to fire in at least two of the remaining three games if the franchise have to do well. So this game is important for Hyderabad and Tripathi as well.”

Tripathi was the lone warrior with the bat in Hyderabad’s pursuit against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in their past IPL 2022 match. He scored 58 off 37 as SRH capitulated to 125 all out in pursuit of 193.

Asked if he sees any changes in Hyderabad’s bowling, Singh said: “SRH will stick to Umran Malik. If fit, Washington Sundar can come in for J Suchith. T Natarajan can replace Kartik Tyagi. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is among their best bowlers and is looking in rhythm after a long time.

“He is looking fully fit and moving the ball both ways. Don’t see any other changes in the bowling.”
