This has been a challenging season for SRH, but no need to overreact: Kane Williamson

The team from Hyderabad is set to finish bottom of the IPL 2021 points table

Following their loss against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) are set to finish last in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. SRH skipper Kane Williamson says that this has been a challenging season but there is no need to overreact.

"The surfaces have varied a lot and I think we have seen that teams that have been successful have been able to adapt to these surfaces. Once again, it is important for us not to overreact. It has definitely been a challenging season for us in that aspect," Williamson said after the defeat against KKR.

Williamson, who took over as captain from David Warner further adds that the focus shifts to a lot of other things when the performances have not been great. "I suppose personally, standing in as skipper in the second half of the tournament, you try to do have a collective focus. There are a number of things around the corner that can take the attention of the players, but you know that as a team, we are fortunate to be here," Williamson further said.

Williamson was disappointed that they couldn't build on Powerplay overs. "We got through the powerplay and there was an opportunity to build towards a 140-150 total and obviously we fell short of it. Williamson said after SRH went down by six wickets here on Sunday for the team's 10th defeat of the ongoing IPL season."

The surface didn't allow any batter to settle down, said Williamson. "It was a challenging surface, it was hard to get your rhythm on because of the tennis ball bounce. Particularly with the new ball, it sat on the surface and it reflected on the low strike rates which have been quite interesting in the second half of the tournament," he said about Sunday's game.
