Sunrisers Hyderabad batsman against Mumbai Indians once again stunned his bat and also hit 3 consecutive boundaries on Mumbai’s star pacer Jasprati Bumrah.
IPL 2022 is about to end and like every season, the discussion has started again about those new players, who have impressed a lot with their game in this season and they are being demanded to be included in Team India. . This season this discussion is revolving around players like Tilak Verma, Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh, Deepak Hooda, but there is one player who is doing consistently well for the last two-three seasons and even after that the discussions are going on. I can’t even come. This batsman is the highest run-scorer for his team, Rahul Tripathi, who once again showed on Tuesday that he should also be given a chance amidst the discussion of many names.
Sunrisers Hyderabad have registered 6 wins in 13 matches so far this season and in most of those matches, Rahul Tripathi, who has been batting at number three, has been an important contributor. This batsman of the Maharashtra cricket team has continued the consistency of the last few seasons in this season as well and has shown that the Rs 8.50 crore that Hyderabad spent on him was not wrong. Along with this, he has once again given another audition in front of the selectors of the Indian team, so that he gets at least a chance to show his performance in the blue jersey.
Strong performance by Rahul Tripathi
Like every IPL season, this time too some new players have done well and they are likely to be given a chance in Team India for next month’s T20 series against South Africa. At the same time, there is also a batsman like Rahul Tripathi, who has been doing his work continuously for the last few seasons. During this, he also scored 3 consecutive boundaries in Jasprit Bumrah’s over.
It is not just about this innings, but his performance has been the same in this season as well. In this season, Tripathi has so far scored 393 runs in 13 innings, in which he has 3 half-centuries to his name. His strike rate is 161.72, while the average is 39. He has also scored 19 sixes and 39 fours.
Will the team be able to get a place in India?
This performance is much more than regular Indian batsmen like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul this season. Also, Tilak Verma, who is currently in discussion, is better than young stars like Deepak Hooda, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill. Certainly after such a performance, the question of being given a chance in Team India arises. Now, how is the answer to this question, it will probably be decided on the day on which Rahul Tripathi will probably play his last match in this season – May 22.
