    3. Abhishek Sharma

    Abhishek Sharma has been in blistering form in the IPL 2024. He is outscoring Travis Head in terms of strike rate for SRH. Sharma has given some destructive starts to his team, which is why SRH has posted so many big totals. There is no question about his batting form. Adding to that, he is also a useful spinner. The pitches in the USA and West Indies will be slow, where spin can be effective. Abhishek can also bat in the middle order if needed. Hence, he can be a good choice.

    2. Nitish Reddy

    Not just Abhishek, SRH has also induced a like-to-like replacement for Hardik Pandya in Nitish Reddy. The pace-bowling all-rounder bowls at a decent speed of around 140 kmph, takes wickets, is a gun fielder, and hits the ball out of the park. He has scored 115 runs at an average and strike rate of 57.50 and 159.72 in four games and taken three wickets with the ball. If he can continue delivering such performances, he can certainly be a future prospect.
