Former South Africa all-rounder Shaun Pollock was puzzled with Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) batter Abdul Samad’s performance during the clash against Mumbai Indians (MI). Notably, MI earned their third win of the IPL 2023 season after beating SRH by 14 runs at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad on Tuesday, April 18.
“(Abdul) Samad’s performance, I am not sure what happened there. As a retained player, he didn’t look like anywhere near the nick he needed to be to just try and contribute,” Pollock told Cricbuzz.
Biggest disappointment for SRH was Klaasen: Pollock
“The biggest disappointment for SRH was (Heinrich) Klaasen. I know it feels strange but in the over where he took down Piyush Chawla, Klaasen did all the damage that he needed to. He could have smothered the final ball to mid-wicket for a couple or a four. The kind of form he is in, he would have won them the game in the 19th over,” he added.
