Suresh Raina lauds Krunal Pandya for all-round performance against SRH

Legends Lounge

Former India and CSK player Suresh Raina praised Krunal Pandya’s all-round performance, stating that he showed positive intent while batting and has a habit of delivering when the team requires it.

On April 7, Lucknow Super Giants secured a win against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their third match of IPL 2023. SRH, after choosing to bat first, could only manage a total of 121/8 as they struggled to cope with the sluggish Ekana Stadium pitch in Lucknow.

Lucknow chased down the target in 16 overs and gave Hyderabad their second defeat in a row in IPL 2023. Former Indian cricketer Anil Kumble had previously anticipated that Hyderabad would be one of the top four teams in the tournament, given their strong batting line-up that has yet to come to the fore.

“It is not the greatest of starts. Even I had them in my Top-4, I still believe that they have a good side, a very good batting lineup. They have not fired. Their batting has let them down in both the matches. Even against Rajasthan Royals at their home ground, they didn’t score enough runs. Even the bowling on this surface”

Anil Kumble said.

Good all-round performance today by Krunal Pandya: Suresh Raina

About Krunal, Suresh Raina said:

“He (Krunal) batted with good intent. Scored boundaries and then picked up singles as well, it was a good all-round performance today. The boundary he scored by stepping out, it is a difficult shot in these conditions and then the six to Adil Rashid, he looked in good form. Like he mentioned to the press, he has worked on it and is a good white ball cricketer.”

“He bowls during the powerplay and if asked to bowl later also, stands for his captain. In batting as well, he has good dimension. Looks to attack, has good intent and plays very less dot balls and whenever there is an opportunity, hits boundaries as well. He is a very important player for LSG,”

Raina further added.
