Washington Sundar Ruled Out From IPL 2023: Nothing is going well for Sunrisers Hyderabad this season. While this team has slipped to the 9th position in the points table after losing five out of seven matches, now the team’s star all-rounder Washington Sundar is also out of the IPL. He had to be ruled out due to hamstring injury. Sunrisers Hyderabad currently do not have any good option to fill the vacancy left by Washington Sundar. So how can this team overcome this crisis, let’s try to understand here…
Washington Sundar is a spin all-rounder. Not only is he adept at bowling tight, but he also has the ability to bat quickly. In this season too, he has shown his prowess with the ball and the bat. He provides balance in bowling and batting to the Sunrisers Hyderabad team. Now with his departure, the team management will definitely be worried. Because apart from him, there is no better spin all-rounder in this team and there is no good option left to announce replacement.

Probably SRH can give a chance to Vivrant Sharma on such an occasion. Mayank Dangar and Samarth Vyas are also spin allrounder options but Vivrant looks slightly better than these two. It is also possible that SRH will give Abdul Samad a chance. Although, Samad bats better but has been less successful with the bowling.
It is also possible that SRH’s team may give place to one of the specialist foreign spinners Adil Rashid and Akil Hossain in the team. In such a situation, Marco Yansin will have to sit out and in his place an Indian batting specialist can be made a part of the playing-11. Abdul Samad and Nitish Reddy can be options here.
Will SRH announce Washington Sundar’s replacement?
It is unlikely. This is because all the good spin all-rounders of India are currently a part of one or the other IPL team. In such a situation, the option of bringing a replacement player to SRH will not be very good. This team would certainly prefer to stick to their current squad.
