Jonny Bairstow has by far been the best batsman for Hyderabad.
With a win in yesterday’s game, Bangalore snatched the pole position of the 2021 Indian T20 League standings from Chennai, but the Yellow Army will get the chance to get that position back today, if they can beat Hyderabad in their upcoming game.
Hyderabad have had a very poor tournament so far, as they have lost 4 of their 5 games. They are sitting at the bottom of the table and will need a miracle from here onwards to qualify for the playoffs, since there is not much room for defeats left.
