IPL 2018: 3 batsmen who can open with Shikhar Dhawan in Warner's absence
- A look at the probable candidates for the opening slot from the SRH squad.
IPL 11 is around the corner, and the excitement levels have reached a new high. Every team has been analyzed a thousand times by the cricket fans and pundits. Though there remains a franchise that has silently sneaked through all of that drama. It is SRH. Hyderabad franchise remains the least talked-about team.
Let's break the ice and talk something about SRH. This year, Hyderabad looked the most settled side until Warner's ban from the league. However, SRH still has a lot to ponder. Hyderabad seems a decent side with all the bases covered. The only matter of discussion for SRH is the vacant opening slot after Warner's way out from the league. Thus, let us have a look at four batsmen who can open the innings for SRH in the upcoming edition of IPL.
#3 Tanmay Agarwal
A left-handed batting prospect from Hyderabad, Tanmay Agarwal, won many accolades during the recent domestic season for his exceptional performances in all forms of the game. Tanmay happens to be a free-flowing confident batsman who can do wonders while playing in the top order.
While opening the innings for Hyderabad in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2018, Tanmay scored 151 runs at a decent average of 30.20 and an astonishing strike-rate of 145.19. Owing to his fabulous performance in SMAT 2018, Tanmay bagged a Rs. 20 lakhs deal with SRH for the upcoming edition of IPL. Thus, this time around, Tanmay might get a chance to open the innings for SRH.
