SRH's performance this season has been a mix of high and low moments. Led by Pat Cummins, their strategy will likely focus on exploiting the home conditions which generally favor batsmen. The top order, featuring Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma, needs to provide a strong start, while middle-order bats like Heinrich Klaasen need to ensure they keep the momentum going.
