Nitish Kumar Reddy upheld his impressive batting form for the Sunrisers Hyderabad by delivering yet another crucial innings, this time scoring 76 runs. Despite facing a challenging situation, Reddy showcased his ability to adapt to the conditions, making batting appear effortless on a wicket that posed some difficulties. As the innings unfolded, Reddy transitioned through the gears, capitalising on the final overs and unleashing a range of shots.

After initially playing a supporting role to Travis Head, Reddy took charge once he found his rhythm. It was impressive to witness the level-headedness displayed by a young player like Reddy in the IPL. He exhibited excellent shot selection, showing a clear understanding of which deliveries to attack and which ones to play cautiously. This approach enabled him to bat through the innings and contribute significantly to SRH’s total.

SRH captain Pat Cummins expressed immense admiration for Reddy’s performance, describing him as “amazing” and acknowledging his improvement in every match. Cummins highlighted Reddy’s versatility with both bat and ball, emphasising his readiness to step up and deliver when needed. Reddy’s ability to confidently take on spin bowlers like Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal was particularly impressive, showcasing his talent and maturity at a young age.

His capability to clear the boundaries effortlessly was evident, indicating a wide range of shots in his arsenal. SRH will have to ensure that they guide Reddy in the best way possible, for him to continue to grow as a player and deliver more match-winning knocks for the franchise.
