Sun Risers Hyderabad is doing well in this season of the IPL tournament. They are currently in the 4th spot of the table. Despite having strong openers who wins the game for their team in lot of the matches, the middle order batsmen are not contributing much. Do Vijay Devarakonda hints Nani grab the spot after seeing his batting ability in the movie “Jersey”??
