Former Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) spinner Piyush Chawla said Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) skipper Kane Williamson take more time to settle at the crease.

After losing the first two matches of the IPL 2022, SRH have won matches on the trot to move up to the second place in the points table. Courtesy? Their terrifying bowling unit comprises Bhuvneshwar Kumar, T Natarajan, Umran Malik, Marco Jansen and a spinner- Jagadeesha Suchith or Washington Sundar.

SRH is the only team to have won the toss in all seven matches so far in the IPL 2022. Kane Williamson asked all of their opponents to bat first after winning the toss.

Williamson, who opens the innings this season along with youngster Abhishek Sharma, has scored 143 runs facing 151 balls in seven innings, striking at 94.7.

Kane Williamson is trying to find a form: Piyush Chawla

Chawla, who played 165 IPl games for four different teams, said Williamson will soon find his form.

Kane Williamson hasn’t shown great form till now. He is taking a lot of time at the crease, which he doesn’t usually do. There is always this phase where you aren’t able to do things that you plan on doing,” Chawla told ESPNCricinfo.

“He is trying to find form. He will surely come back into form, but it remains to be seen when that happens,” he added.

SRH will surely be prepared to bat first: Piyush Chawla

The Indian leg-spinner also mentioned that SRH will have to up the ante if they are asked to bat first in order to put up a substantial score for their bowlers to defend.

“SRH haven’t batted first till now but they will surely be prepared for that. But while batting first, a team needs to ensure they score 10 more runs than what they initially target. This gives the bowler some cushion,” Chawla said.
