TATA IPL 2022 PBKS v SRH: Fans slam Odean Smith’s selection into playing XI

Netizens during a match of PBKS against Sunrisers Hyderabad slammed Odean Smith’s inclusion in the lineup of Punjab Kings fr his poor show with the bat.

Sunrisers Hyderabad invited Punjab Kings to bat in the first match of the day which is also a doubleheader. Heading towards the big score over 200 runs with 7 Wickets in hands. But once Shahrukh Khan departed, the team collapsed and failed to capitalize the momentum provided by Liam Livingstone’s innings of 60 runs. Punjab Kings managed to score 151 runs in their allotted 20 overs.

While defending the 151 runs, fans slam the inclusion of Odean Smith in the team once again over other players. Smith scored just 13 runs off 15 balls he faced. In the league, he has managed to score only 25*(8), 9*(12), 3(7), 0(1), 1(1), and 13(15). The performance of the player has been dropping down and hasn’t seen the glimpse of a pinch hitter for which he has been included in the team. The West Indian pinch hitter was pulled in by PBKS for his all-around capabilities against India in the recent limited-overs series in India. The player hasn’t been able to fill the expectation for which he is usually sent to finish off the matches. In the match against, SRH, the player was left clueless against Umran Malik’s pace.
