Having played 7 games so far, they lost 6 games and things have turned from bad to worse. However, SRH need to win the remaining 7 games in order to have a good chance of making it to the top four. Only time will tell the whole story as to whether SRH can pull off a surprise this time around.

Bairstow reveals SRH’s biggest prankster

Meanwhile, SRH player Jonny Bairstow named the most mischievous player in the SRH squad and he is none other than Priyam Garg. The likes of former Australian Brad Haddin and pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar agreed with Bairstow.

Bairstow, Bhuvneshwar and Haddin had a candid chat over tea sometime during the course of the 14th season of IPL. The franchise shared a clip featuring the SRH trio on Tuesday.

Haddin can be seen asking who the duo consider the biggest prankster in the group. In no time, Jonny singled out Priyam Garg as the mischievous player.

“Priyam (Garg). He’s the one that is up to mischief. He is the first one to try and cake bash you. He is the first one to sneak up on you. He’s always the quiet one saying ‘I don’t understand, I don’t understand’. But he understands!” Bairstow added.

Meanwhile, the pacer agreed with Bairstow and all of them couldn’t control their laughter. “But he keeps quiet in front of me because I have known him since he was a kid. We practised at the same place. He somehow keeps quiet in front of me and tries not to do any mischief,” the 31-year-old Bhuvneshwar revealed
