Former India pacer Venkatesh Prasad feels that Sunrisers Hyderabad must include Irfan Pathan in their team to bolster the batting. He says there is not much point in playing both Bhuvneshar Kumar and Ishant Sharma, and is of the opinion that Irfan's presence also gives him the role of all-rounder. Former Australian batsman Dean Jones is surprised that Irfan is not in the playing eleven. While both experts hailed Rajasthan Royals' performance for their four-wicket win over Hyderabad, they pointed out that the tournament has just started and it is too early to make predictions.
