Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) is best known for their brilliant bowling line-up and even it is considered as the most potent and dangerous side in the ongoing 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018.

At the moment, the SRH is leading the IPL 2018 points table with 9 wins out of 11 matches, as well as, has qualified for the Playoffs, and there is no doubt that the Hyderabad bowlers have been the X-factor in the former IPL champions’ success in the tournament so far.

However, it will be unfair to not give credit to Captain Kane Williamson for Hyderabad’s success, as he is the man who has been brilliantly using his bowlers and making the ideal combination, which makes things easy for the bowling line-up to execute their plans on the field in the ongoing IPL 2018.

SRH batsman Yusuf Pathan also believes that Williamson has good knowledge of using bowlers in different situations that’s the reason behind the success of bowlers in the tournament.

As per reports in Hindustan Times, Pathan said, “Kane is a calm person and that has helped us all. His presence ensures things don’t go haywire even under pressure. He has good knowledge of using bowlers in different situations and rotating them when needed.”

They have even defended quite lowest totals 118, 132, 146 and 151 so far in the tournament if they will continue playing with this way, they can go the distance for sure.

Pathan signed off by saying, “If we keep playing this way, there is no reason we can’t go the distance. We have got some difficult wickets and the batsmen should be given equal credit for helping the team reach defendable targets in tough conditions.”
