Sunrisers Hyderabad itself has the likes of Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, and Khaleel Ahmed to name a few, who are fasting during the month of Ramadan and in a video shared by the SRH franchise, captain Warner and Williamson are seen talking about this holy month and sharing their views on fasting.

Kane Williamson is yet to play a match for SRH as he is recovering from his elbow problem and Trevor Bayliss, the head coach, mentioned that Kane Williamson had started batting in the nets and might be seen soon on the field.
Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad is struggling to open their account in the ongoing IPL 2021 edition as they lost to Mumbai Indians (MI) recently in Chennai by 13 runs. It was yet another team getting a great start while chasing a mediocre target and then collapsing in the second half as the ball comes slower and slower on the bat.
SRH will take on Punjab Kings on April 21 in Chennai next.
