The fate of Orange Army Sunrisers Hyderabad(SRH) has not changed even in the second leg of the Indian Premier League(IPL). The team had failed once again in the tournament making the chances of reaching the playoffs. SRH suffered defeats in seven matches out of the eight matches it played.

Coming to the match against the Delhi Capitals, the team was skittled for 134 runs in their quota of 20 overs for the loss of nine wickets. With a lesser score, DC had won the game quite comfortably and chased the target in 17.5 years by losing just two wickets.

The only possibility for SRH reaching the qualifiers is winning every match from hereon and depending on the other teams. Based on the match results of other teams, the team might see a spot in the qualifiers.

Looking at the performance of the team in the league so far, the team winning all the next matches it plays might not be possible. Big players like David Warner, Kane Williamson are also failing, much to the dissatisfaction of the fans. In the past six years, SRH is facing difficulties to reach the playoffs for the first time.

Making big changes in the team and roping in match-winners is the need of the hour for the team. There is a dire need for all-rounders who can bat and rescue the team with their bowling. Now all the eyes are on the upcoming mega auction. Let us see what SRH has to offer.
