Washington Sundar should recieve better treatment: opines Murali Karthik

Washington Sundar

Sunrisers Hyderabad are at the bottom of the league table. They have lost three out of five matches. Former India spinner Murali Karthik feels that Hyderabad have an important player Washington Sundar but they are not using him.

Hyderabad lost by 14 runs against Mumbai Indians on Tuesday. Chasing 193 runs at Wankhede, Hyderabad’s batting collapsed. Karthik feels that Hyderabad depends a lot on Abdul Samad. But he can’t run like that. According to Karthik, Hyderabad cannot use Washington Sundar.

Murali Karthik believes that SRH is dependent much on inconsistent Samad overlooking experienced Washington Sundar

Karthik said,

“Having played cricket myself, I know how difficult it is to get on the field and do the work. A lot can be said sitting in an air-conditioned room. But I don’t understand why Hyderabad are relying so much on Samad. He cannot make any impact in the match. Washington Sundar is a great cricketer. He also has played for India. Why is not Hyderabad using Washington? If they make such a mistake, they will be at the bottom of the points list.”

Keeping Sundar aside, Samad scored 9 runs from 12 balls against Mumbai. He was also run out in the last over of the match. The 21-year-old batsman from Jammu and Kashmir played in the IPL for the first time in 2020. He scored 288 runs in 28 matches in IPL. Average 16.94. Strike rate 135.21. Samad hit 17 sixes. He became famous for playing big shots. But this time in IPL, he is not seen playing big shots like that. Consistent failure of Samad made Karthik comment on the role of Washinton Sundar in the team.
